Well-organized storage! Where is the potato peeler? The muffin tin? The blender?  OK, here are some ideas – be sure you tell your remodeling contractor about them:

  • A special drawer for the aluminum foil, plastic wrap and wax paper.
  • An easy-to-find location for the rolling pin.
  • A pull-out cutting board.
  • A mixer garage; the door lifts up, the shelf pulls forward. Let’s face it, those mixers are heavy, and who wants to look at it sitting on the counter every day?
  • Mobile butcher block island sound good? Readily rolls under the counter, pulls out easily when you need the butcher block top to chop large items.
  • A foldable step stool; put an ultra-thin model in a drawer that slides into the toe kick. Nice.
  • If you are a dog lover, how about a built-in feeding station. Off the floor, with bowls that won’t tip or spill or cause you to trip over them.
