Keep the cabinets at your waist level where you will store all the everyday items. Plan the height of the cabinets according to the container height so that space does not remain unused.

For the microwave cabinet, never use metal and check for proper safety from any unforeseen circumstance that might take place due to all the wiring and plugs on its back or side.

4.     If the Cabinets Already Exist, Remodel: If the cabinets already exist in your kitchen, but it has become old and dysfunctional, you can minimize on the cost considerably by remodelling the same cabinets instead of installing completely new ones.
