Top Five Kitchen Features You Never Knew You Needed

A great kitchen design is more than just an aesthetic perk up, it’s a revamp in the functionality of your space.

As you begin the planning phase of your kitchen remodel, it’s always a good idea to push the possibilities and customize your layout. We’re kitchen pros and when it comes to storage, workspace, and convenience, we can assure you that the sky is the limit.

Whether you’re looking to hide away those clunky appliances or just streamline your daily kitchen experience, we’ve got the kitchen hacks you didn’t realize you needed in your life.

We’ve put together a list of some ingenious kitchen hacks to incorporate in your brand new kitchen design.

Appliance Cabinet

Counter-top kitchen appliances might be heaven sent, but they gobble up precious counter space. By incorporating an appliance-friendly cabinet with custom dimensions, these bulky appliances have a place where they can be stored neatly and accessed effortlessly.

Dry Goods Drawer

As homey and traditional as it is to keep your flour, sugar and other dry essentials in canisters on your countertop, the dry goods drawer is changing the game. Here, your design features a deep drawer with inserts that house canisters for flour, rice, oats and everything in between. This keeps them out of harm’s way, out of sight and conveniently off the counter.

Coffee Cabinet

Your design should help you make the most of your kitchen and this coffee cabinet idea is the ultimate caffeination station. One of the biggest issues that coffee lovers have is finding a space to organize mugs, coffee tools and of course the star of the show, the coffee pot. A sliding platform allows the area to be more accessible and the addition of a pot filler faucet makes filling the coffee pot a breeze.

Cutting Board Organization

There’s no such thing as having too many cutting boards or cookie sheets, but there is such a thing as having no place to store them. Incorporating a cabinet divider that keeps cutting boards and sheet pans upright on their sides is a great space saver and keeps pans safe from becoming warped or even damaged.

Knife Block Drawer

Knives help us make the magic happen in the kitchen, but a knife block is anything but convenient when it needs to have a home on your counter. Having a drawer/knife block keeps your most important utensils safe, accessible and out of the way. If you have kids around, this drawer can even feature a lock that keeps them securely hidden.

The best part about kitchen design is the ability to dream big and think outside the box (and the big box stores).

These clever kitchen hacks are just a fraction of what a custom designed kitchen can bring to the table and when there are no limits, your creativity is free to flourish. Your kitchen should be the ultimate merge of style and functionality and the East Hill Cabinetry team brings that philosophy to life with every design.
