December 26, 2008, Newsletter Issue #32: Innovative Cabinetry Can Combine Style with Comfort

Tip of the Week

Let's say you want to create a kitchen unlike anything you've seen to date. You might have seen ideas you like on websites or in showrooms but nothing exactly like what you want. Do you have to sacrifice some features in your kitchen remodeling project? Maybe not.

There are so many design ideas today for innovative cabinets and drawer spaces that make cooking a breeze. And, you don't have to pick a particular kitchen you see in a magazine; you can pick and choose only those features you want. Here is an example of the ideal island. Let's say you like dark wood contrasted with light wood. You can order innovative cabinets that incorporate both. Maybe you like food prep at an island location. You can install a sink and disposal there so you don't have to keep turning around to use your main sink. Maybe you like to keep an eye on your daughter doing her homework while you make dinner. You can design your island to include an overhang for bar stools. Maybe you want to catch your favorite TV show while you handle food prep. Believe it or not, you can have a pop-up TV installed in your island. Oops. You forgot to get out your pastry blender. Just open a custom drawer and find it in its own separate space. Or, check a recipe by pulling out a cookbook next to you from a shelving unit. Need a bottle of wine to enhance your meal? It could be within easy reach in the vertical wine rack custom-built into your island food prep paradise. The list can go on and on.

The best places to find these and other unique ideas for your kitchen include websites, TV shows and magazines. You can also do your own searches online for a particular item or meet with a custom kitchen installer who is likely to be aware of the many suppliers who offer newer products for the kitchen industry.
