Nowadays freestanding cabinets are so rarely seen in kitchens that when they do appear they look unusual, unnatural and intriguing. There was a time, however, when everything in the kitchen was free and movable and that included both appliances and furniture, the only exception being the sink. In the 1940s, however, came a period when freestanding kitchen cabinets were considered highly impractical and out of fashion and when the style we now consider conventional was favored. Right now we’re seeing a comeback of freestanding cabinetry and we’re rediscovering all the things that made them so appealing in the first place.
Contrary to what you may think, freestanding kitchen cabinets are actually more easy to install than the conventional types. You may not even need the help of a professional which brings us to what is possibly the greatest advantage of all: the ability to retake control of your kitchen and to be in complete charge of its look, configuration, placement and even installation.

Rather than just an appliance hidden under the counter, wine lovers can now display their favorite vintages in an attractive system that becomes an integral part of the design.
