The most important principle in 3D designing is that you should draw the dimensions of the cabinet in a way that would be compatible with customers’ needs and limitations of the manufacture’s machines. Indeed, the length and the height of cabinets have a definite norm and the dimension that designers try to alter is the width.
The Basics of Designing Dimensions in Ground Cabinets
The external dimensions of a cabinet create its different forms and styles. The internal dimensions are most practical in assessing the related volume of the cabinet. Below you can see the standard dimensions of a cabinet which has been designed in 3D. Note that this figure demonstrates the standard forms of external dimensions.
Sometimes, deeper cabinets are designed for holding the refrigerator; so that its depth may even reach 92 cm. Some designers try to design smaller cabinets for smaller kitchens but they don’t regard this fact that it will result in a lower internal volume and will not help these small kitchens. In the following, we will survey the standard internal dimensions of the cabinet for determining the standard volume and how shelves are positioned.
The width of ground cabinets depends on the customer but you should note that sometimes it is not possible to manufacture the designed cabinet due to some problems. Therefore, while designing, you should consider some fillers. Designers should fill the remaining parts of the kitchen, so it is better to design the kitchen first and then design the 3D platform of cabinets.
The Basics of Designing Dimensions in Wall Cabinets
The standard depth of wall cabinets is usually 30 cm but their width should be proportional to the width of ground cabinets. Of course, depending on the needs of customers, the designer can ignore these norms. The height of wall cabinets is designed based on the customers’ needs and manufacturer’s equipment. Generally, it is recommended that there should be at least 20 cm gap between these cabinets and ceiling. While designing wall cabinets, it is better to use creative ideas because the beauty of a kitchen depends largely on wall cabinets. Below you can see the positioning of wall and ground cabinets and the space between them.
The necessary gap between ground and wall cabinets is 38 cm and there will arise any problem if this gap increases. You can increase this gap to even 53 cm if the customer wants. If you have designed a wall cabinet at the top of the dinner table, its’ height should not exceed 76 cm.
There are also other forms for designing kitchen cabinets. For example you can ignore wall cabinets and instead, design multi-stair or height-equal cabinets. Designing these kinds of cabinets requires a great skill in using 3D software. You can add a bit of creativity in designing these modern cabinets; you can consider special places for putting Microwave, dish holder and so on. Notice that 3D designing should be producible in the real world so that the manufacturer can perform the design accurately.
In modern designing approaches, some customers ask for an office-style in their kitchen. Therefore, you can design countertops for them but keep in mind that they should have a lower height in comparison with normal countertops. It is better to consider a 76 cm height for them and they will become totally similar to office tables.
