Cabinets aren’t the only things that can be installed in corners. Even though it’s less common and perhaps even difficult, it’s possible to place large appliances in kitchen corners too. For example, the cooktop or the stove could fit in there and you could have an exhaust hood installed above it, with a custom mask moulded around it.
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.
