Design always needs to be pragmatic as well as aesthetically pleasing – only when the perfect balance of visual presence and functionality is achieved can one achieve a harmonious ambiance. Architecture itself is an individualistic art – a single entity amongst an urban franchise. Interior design, on the other hand is a smaller, more pristine and precise version of creating a certain ambiance. It takes into account both the visual prowess of the material and intangible aspects of space, and manipulates accordingly. Cabinet design is one of the more pragmatic aspects of an interior. However that does not mean that they have to be designed only on the basis of a suitable aesthetic. It is one element of interior design that can be predetermined amalgamated with a small scale architectural formation, as it is a good way to take care of any unsavory nooks and crannies in design. On the other hand, it can also be used as a feature element in a design formation. Either of the two options are fine, and should be designed accordingly. There are also options – if you want a shelving unit for decorative or functional purposes – as each one would have an individual set of design considerations. Today, we will be looking at a few ideal cabinet designs that run the gamut of aesthetics and functionality.
1. Zig and Zag
This particular cabinet was made to hold both trinkets and books of various sizes and shapes. Not only is it customized for all sorts of sizes and baubles, it is constructed and mounted in materials that amalgamate with the overall aesthetic and visual quality of the theme. It may not be the boldest design, but it is certainly something different.
2. Bed come shelf
The pedestal of the bed is one of those places that definitely go to waste if you choose to go for an old fashioned one. But the image below proves just how you can work with space efficiency and design all on the same page – the cabinets built into the pedestal of the bed are not only aesthetically appealing, they are also very useful and functionally pragmatic.
Sometimes, open cabinetry can be a pain to take care of in the aftermath of design, so a closed cabinet design is always a good back up if you can’t keep up. This design shows just how a closed cabinet design can add the appeal of a design while retaining a certain character of its own.
4. In house
Cabinets and wardrobes designed in closed, private zones of a home can be hard to design due to space constraints, but the Zen-style design below demonstrates just how well design, aesthetics and functionality can be amalgamated.
Sometimes, a client can demand a certain efficacy and style that lean towards fancy, and this particular cabinet shoes just how simple it is to achieve that flair with a bit of lighting, and carefully straight lines.
