Casework Systems – Design Meets Purpose

Casework systems should be designed to work together and last for many years.  When looking at casework systems, there are certain points to consider: 

  1. What is the purpose of the casework system?  Is it for a lab setting, or a school?  Will it be used in a government building for storage, or will it be in a healthcare office?
  2. How frequently will items stored in the casework be accessed?  The frequency of access can determine how best to design the doors and tops to the casework areas.
  3. How clean/sanitary will the casework need to be?  For medical practices or labs, a sanitary environment is essential, and using laminate surfaces is one of the best ways to insure a clean surface area.  Solid surface materials and laminates can handle strong cleaners and still look attractive even after long periods of use.
  4. How important are the edges on the casework?  Can they handle repeated impact and remain intact?
  5. What colors are needed?  Solid surface materials, woods and laminates are available in a plethora of colors, textures and patterns.
  6. Will you need drawers as well as cabinets?  Consider the types of hinges and slides, how often they would be used and how durable they should be.
  7. How important is shelving?  Consider the weight of items that will be stored, and how sturdy the shelves will need to be.
