Don’t get stuck with lost cabinet space.

With the proper planning in your kitchen remodel, or for anywhere you plan to install new cabinets, it is important to think about the space you will need, use, and want. If you consider that your cabinets are 34 1/2″ tall, then the vertical space becomes usable. Why have unused cabinet areas, when you can add accessories to better utilize the cabinet cavity.

Also, if you have space between cabinets, you can fill that space with a spice rack (must be 6″ or more). Or maybe you can divide the space side-to-side so that you have a divider for cookie sheet pans or baking pans or cutting boards.

The point is, panning ahead will give you a bigger bang for the bucks you spend. So, let’s consider some ideas…

Think out of the box. Use your wine rack for stylish storage of more than just wines.

Store all sorts of bottles in a wine rack cabinet

Whether you are a wine connoisseur or not, most people find they need to get their wine off the floor and out of the cupboard to store somewhere more convenient. What better way than to have a dedicated wine rack or two as part of your kitchen design plan!

But did you ever think about having an additional wine rack to store other condiments? Most vinegars, olive and other oils, liquor, syrups and custom sodas come in similar sized bottles and can be stored just as easily in your wine rack(s). Or you can customize your condiments to fit. Either way, the wine rack cabinet can be repurposed, and who doesn’t love a bit of upcycling! You can even use it to store towels in your laundry! Read on…

Ahh, the joy of remote working in a home office designed just for you. Now that millions of Americans are working from home, and redesigning their home office space, this is more of an option than ever. If you have a room that doesn’t have a feature wall or focal point, you can add cabinets and shelves to create an eye-catching and attractive feature wall that will enhance your space.

Sometimes, a fireplace or artwork will serve this function, but if you have neither of those things, don’t worry, a feature wall with well chosen cabinets and shelves can be a great alternative. Here’s how…

Use that leftover space between or below cabinets

Plan your cabinet placement to allow for a spice rack. Elegant, efficient organization for your spices.

I don’t know about you, but the hardest organizational problem I have in my kitchen (well, not anymore) is where to store all those different containers of spices and condiments? Above and below, to the side, not all walls are created equal, which means you may have some leftover space to utilize. So, be creative!

If you’re thinking about remodeling your kitchen or perhaps it is a new build, make sure you think about how you will cook, what you use and where you want to find it. Peering over stacked containers and jars to find a spice bottle you were sure you “just used,” is a time waster. With a built-in spice rack that is accessible from both sides, your problem is solved.*

What do we mean by cabinet bling?

Your cabinets, whether in the kitchen, bathroom, home office, laundry, or other, are enhanced by the bling you attach to them. What is that bling? The knobs or pulls you use to dress them up, giving a unique tone and style to your space.

Knobs and pulls come in a huge variety of shapes, colors, and finishes. This gives you the option of giving your cabinets just the right look to fit your overall design. They can be wood or metal; shiny or dull; painted or raw. Truly, the sky is the limit and you should start early in the design process to start investigating your options. Let us see what to think about…
