Smart drawer storage for your new kitchen.

If you are considering remodeling your kitchen and would wish to make it a more efficient space as well as esthetically pleasing, here are some great ways to accomplish both. They are all creative solutions and I wouldn't blame you if you wanted to include them all in your kitchen design. For decades, European cabinet makers have been innovative in finding solutions for maximizing storage in kitchens. I am always on the look out for the latest trends that pop up over seas and I implement them in my kitchen designs when I can.

This is a great example of drawer organization for your kitchen. Everything is within reach and easily accessible. If you wish to create a kitchen with less upper cabinets, this will allow you to store everything you would typically store in a wall cabinet down below.

The Lazy Susan is a thing of the past - outfit your corner with drawers instead. I find that people are loving this option more and more.


The sink cabinet is always the hardest to keep organized and clean. This solves those issues perfectly. If you decide to use this option for your sink it’s important to speak to your plumber before hand so they can plan for the plumbing accordingly. Also, be sure not to purchase a deep sink with this application.

I am finding that more and more homeowners are asking for base cabinet storage for their dishes and glassware. Rather than reaching into a wall cabinet and lifting heavy plates it easier to have then in a top drawer. I'm all about organization and I find that solution is right on point.
