More and more decor trends form the past come back to our kitchens to make them edgy and unusual: eye-catchy tile backsplashes, two-tone cabinets, string lights and more and more. Freestanding cabinetry is one of them, it’s rediscovered and is making a huge come back, and more and more designers and home owners use it. Freestanding cabinets have legs and seem to be more elevated from the floor. They don’t need to be attached to the back wall although they can be if desired. I’ve prepared some pros that are to convince you to rock such cabinets in your kitchen, too.

Comfy Legs

Most of such cabinets are finished on all sides, and that means that you can move them around as much as you need and create various configurations – a great option for those who love changes and refreshing the space from time to time. The legs can be lowered or raised if you need to change the look, and they will fit even a space with imperfect flooring.
