It’s not enough to have a beautiful kitchen, it also has to be functional. Everything from the layout to the organization of the interior of your cabinets needs to work hard for you and your family. In the grand scheme of things, your cabinet color and hardware finishes matter very little if the flow of your kitchen makes it hard to actually cook. The good news: It’s easy to build in customizations that feel super luxe, no matter how high or low your renovation budget is. We’re talking hidden trash pullouts, spice rack inserts, Lazy Susan space maximizers, and more.
We’re here to let you in on a secret resource designers and contractors use time and time again: Rev-a-Shelf. The company makes products to help maximize the insides of cabinets and drawers for the entire home—we especially love their kitchen organizers. Anita Yokota’s BOXI by Semihandmade kitchen makes use of their 8-Inch Utensil Soft Close Pull Out Cabinet Organizer that she placed next to her stove for easy utensil grabbing and spice storage.
According to Yokota, installation is super easy. Could she have designed a kitchen with drawer storage for utensils? Shelves in cabinets for spices? Sure, but this easy solution feels custom, intentional, and functional in the way you want your new renovated space to feel.
If you’re beginning to design a new kitchen—whether it’s manifesting a future space in your head, organizing inspiration on Pinterest boards, or actually in the layout stage of planning—and want those cool features, but don’t know how to get them on your budget… well, you’re welcome.
