Often, kitchen plinths are the unsung hero when it comes to kitchen design. Very rarely do they get noticed in the finished appearance of a standout kitchen, but they make all the difference when it comes to the subtleties that really polish off your look.

What are kitchen cupboard plinths?

Kitchen plinths are used to cover up the space that will inevitably exist under a kitchen unit, allowing for a seamless look that can truly complete your ideal style. Having a well-rounded and polished kitchen space with no visible gaps is the result of a highly professional job, ensuring your kitchen will last for many years to come. This can be achieved by incorporating the sturdiest products, with an emphasis on how the overall look will appeal to homeowners and visitors alike.

Kitchen cupboard plinth lighting

Whilst many people choose to have lighting underneath their kitchen units, in our opinion plinth lighting is seriously underrated. The function of plinth lighting is mainly for ambience. Well-planned lighting of your kitchen can really help to add dimension and depth to your room. This is particularly the case in open-plan kitchens, and kitchen cupboard plinth lighting can work beautifully to create a neat look with an ambient glow.

You can choose from visible spotlights along the length of your kitchen cupboard plinths, or a strip of concealed LED lights for a more subtle look, projecting the light downwards.

What’s the difference between kitchen cupboard plinths and toe kicks?

Toe kicks offer the same function as kitchen cupboard plinths – covering the gap between the kitchen cupboards and the floor. However, toe kicks are slightly recessed, allowing room for those with larger feet to get closer to the countertop. This improves balance and reduces fatigue from stretching. Toe kicks give the illusion of floating kitchen units, and their popularity has grown in recent years.

Kitchen cupboard plinths, on the other hand, are usually not recessed and offer a more seamless look. Here at Kitchen Warehouse, we offer both toe kicks and kitchen cupboard plinths, giving you more options to choose from when designing your new kitchen.

What is a kitchen cupboard cornice?

Another addition which can help to finalise any attractive new kitchen is a kitchen cornice. This stylish trim helps fix the top of your kitchen wall cabinets to the ceiling, closing any potential gaps that could become evident after installation is complete.

If your kitchen cupboards don’t reach the ceiling, a cornice can simply put the finishing touch to the top of your cupboards. Also, many people store a lot of items on top of their kitchen cupboards, and a cornice can help to hide these from view.

It is important to think carefully about the colour of your kitchen cabinet cornice. You may want it to perfectly complement the rest of your kitchen’s colourway, or maybe you’d like to add a pop of colour for a real wow factor.

kitchen cupboard cornice is an effective way of adding those crucial finishing touches to your kitchen design that can make all the difference.

What is a kitchen cupboard pelmet?

Kitchen cupboard pelmets are found around the bottom of the cabinets. They can help the bottom of your kitchen cabinets to look tidier and are often used to hide unsightly worktop lighting fixtures.

Kitchen pelmets often go hand in hand with the cornice. These two features are generally finished in the same colour to complement the theme of the room.
