‘Functionality First’ is a mantra we live by during the design process for every kitchen project. While determining the most ideal layout of appliances, sinks and work zones takes the lead; hardworking cabinet accessories play very important supporting roles. Recently, the kitchen industry has delighted in the influx of innovative storage solutions. Some tried and true accessories of years past continue to hold their places as well.
A top priority for us is to ensure our clients thoroughly enjoy working in every beautiful kitchen we create. Thoughtfully placed accessories help us to achieve this goal. Here are some favorites!
Say Goodbye to Scary Corners
Named after the LeMans race track, the LeMans Pull Out truly maximizes the space in blind corner cabinets. We find that these lima bean shaped trays are ideal for storing bulky items such as serving dishes or smaller appliances.
With soft and self closing mechanisms, this product is practical and extremely sleek. Don’t tell Lazy Susan we said so!
Tuck the Towels
Paper towel holders on a counter top can detract from the overall aesthetic, especially when placed on an island. A handy solution that maintains a clean look is a custom drawer paper towel holder. Tuck that roll out of sight while keeping it within reach next to the sink and near the trash for easy disposal. The drawer space behind is a great spot for dish towels, too!
Handy and Hidden Utensil Canisters
The home chef just got happier! With Rev-A-Shelf’s base cabinet pullout featuring nifty utensil canisters, it’s goodbye to unappealing counter bins and digging through utensil drawers that never seem to be organized. This game-changing accessory is best placed next to the cooking surface for easy access.
Upgrade That Utensil Drawer
Time to ditch the plastic utensil trays! Stay organized with Hafele’s Fineline™ Cutlery Tray with options for knife blocks, foil and plastic wrap organizers, spice jars and more. Offered in rich walnut, shown here, and other popular wood species, this is a beautiful accessory we constantly recommend to our clients!
Roll Away Printer
In recent times, the kitchen has seen increasing popularity as a place to do office work. Whether the kitchen is spacious or cramped, most clients are interested in hiding their printers given they are typically bulky and unattractive. One way to declutter is to incorporate a rollout shelf which allows you to hide the printer while making it comfortably accessible.
Take Charge In Your Kitchen
Devices and chargers invading your countertops? Hafele’s docking drawer to the rescue! The docking drawer keeps small electronics organized and hidden while offering a faster, more powerful, and safer way of charging!
Deep Dish Drawers
We love bringing the outside into our kitchens which sometimes means forsaking wall cabinets for windows. There are other reasons a kitchen may lack wall cabinets, which is where most of our clients tend to store their dishes. Luckily, there is a versatile and accessible solution which takes advantage of deeper drawers to organize dishware with beautiful plate racks and adjustable drawer posts.
A Lid For Every Pot
Organizing pots and pans is a common struggle for many new clients in their existing kitchens. Incorporating deep drawers or adjustable roll outs like these near the cooking surface for easy access is a smart solution.
And That’s the Tea
Mugs seem to multiply. One creative solution to keep them in order is to incorporate a pull out, adjustable shelf base cabinet in the beverage center. Using the top shelf for teas makes cozying up to a cup even easier!
Think ‘Outside’ the Box
Our Al Fresco on Greenwood Lake brings grilling to the next level. To the left of the grill we incorporated the Rev-A-Shelf Glideware Pullout for easy access to grilling utensils. Spices and oils live to the right just waiting to season the next meal. In-cabinet accessories aren’t just for indoors anymore!
