Unleashing the Power of Kitchen Base Units

Kitchen base units are the unsung heroes of kitchen design.

They provide the foundation for your workspace, house your appliances, and offer valuable storage. 

But there's more to these cabinets than meets the eye. Let's delve deeper into the world of kitchen base units and discover how they can transform your kitchen experience.

The Backbone of Your Kitchen

Kitchen base units are the workhorses of your kitchen. They bear the weight of your worktops, withstand daily use, and provide essential storage. But they're not just functional; they're also a key element of your kitchen's aesthetic. 

Whether you prefer a sleek, modern look or a classic, traditional style, your choice of kitchen base units can make a significant impact on your kitchen's overall feel.

Variety is the Spice of Life

One of the great things about kitchen base units is the variety available. From different sizes and configurations to a range of materials and finishes, there's a kitchen base unit to suit every taste and need.

And with Better Kitchens, you can be sure of finding quality units that offer excellent value for money.

Practical and Space-Saving Designs

Kitchen base units are designed with practicality and space-saving in mind. They make the most of your kitchen's footprint, providing storage where you need it most.

Whether you're looking for a place to store your pots and pans, a home for your oven, or a convenient spot for your recycling bins, there's a kitchen base unit that's perfect for the job.

Getting the Balance Right

When planning your kitchen, it's important to get the balance right between wall cabinets and base units. The standard space needed for a medium unit height is 530mm. This allows for 12mm to 50mm for a standard worktop and leaves about around 450mm for a splashback.

But remember, these are just guidelines. The most important thing is to create a kitchen that works for you.

Affordable Quality

At Better Kitchens, we believe that everyone should be able to afford a quality kitchen. That's why we offer a range of kitchen base units that combine quality, functionality, and affordability.

So whether you're renovating your entire kitchen or just updating your base units, you can be sure of getting great value for money.​

Unravelling the Mysteries of Kitchen Base Units: Your Questions Answered

When it comes to kitchen renovations, we know that the process can be filled with questions, especially about the fundamental building blocks of your kitchen - the base units.

To help you navigate through this crucial aspect of your kitchen journey, we've compiled a list of frequently asked questions about kitchen base units.

Whether you're wondering about sizes, materials, installation, or maintenance, we've got you covered. Let's dive in and answer some of your burning questions.

The base unit of a kitchen is the cabinet that sits on the floor. It provides the foundation for your workspace and houses your appliances and storage.

The standard size of a kitchen base unit can vary, but in the UK, typically they are 720mm (plus 150mm adjustable legs) tall and 560mm deep. Quality kitchen base units will include a service void for pipework. The width can vary depending on the design and purpose of the unit.

Kitchen base units are important because they provide essential storage and house important kitchen appliances. They also form the foundation for your worktops.

While it's technically possible to use wall units as base units, it's not generally recommended. Wall units and base units are designed differently and serve different purposes. Better Kitchens sell a range of Reduced Depth base units for this purpose.

When choosing kitchen base units, consider your storage needs, the size of your kitchen, and the style you want to achieve. It's also important to choose units that are of good quality and offer good value for money.

Regular cleaning with a mild detergent and soft cloth can keep your kitchen base units looking their best. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that could damage the finish.

Kitchen base units can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, plywood, MDF, and particle board. The choice of material can affect the unit's durability, appearance, and cost. Most kitchen units in the UK are manufactured with Egger MFC Furniture Boards.

Yes, with some DIY skills, you can install kitchen base units yourself. However, for more complex installations or if you're not confident in your abilities, it might be best to hire a professional.

There are many ways to maximise storage in your kitchen base units. Consider using drawer dividers, pull-out baskets, carousel units, and corner optimisers to make the most of your space.

Many kitchen base units come with adjustable legs or plinths, allowing you to alter the height to suit your needs. This can be particularly useful if your floor is uneven.
