I just want my kitchen to work better

I hear that comment often from our clients. Basically what they’re saying is that they want to maximize their storage and minimize the effort required to access it. Use of base corner cabinets is always an important consideration. The lazy susans offered by our cabinet companies are bigger and stronger than ever. Each wood carousel is 32” in diameter, rotates on a ball bearing base and is attached to a shelf for added support. In the past, the tiers were mounted on a metal shaft and were adjustable vertically by a set screw fitting. This system caused the shelf to wobble when rotated and didn’t have the strength for heavier storage. Occasionally, the cabinet design doesn’t allow room for a corner lazy susan. In those rare cases, a blind corner cabinet is used. We’ve all used them at one time or another. Those are the cabinets that require a hands-and knees method to reach the items at the back the storage area. The fixtures used today have roll-out shelves that move forward automatically, for easy access, when the cabinet door is opened..
The list of other convenience options is longer than ever. Some of the most popular features are full-extension roll-outs, pull-out spice cabinets, tray dividers, swing-up mixer stands and even recycling units holding two to four bins to organize the materials. In the kitchen design process, each cabinet is given individual attention with regard to its location and intended use. Planning for a custom kitchen has never been easier.  Get in touch with us to inquire about a custom home remodel or any remodeling project you have in mind!
