There is a big trend in kitchen makeovers that is a little harder to see than a wall of new stainless steel appliances, or a swath of bright white marble atop the kitchen island. More homeowners are adding interior features to their kitchen drawers and cabinets to maximize functionality and enhance organization.
We aren’t talking about a trip to the store for some plastic drawer dividers and a lazy Susan for that corner cabinet—no, today you can choose interior features that are as beautiful as the cabinets themselves, and you can customize the organization just as you customized the cabinet finish, or the door glass.
Remember earlier this month when we talked about spice kitchens? They are not an option for everyone, of course, but that doesn’t mean your spice collection doesn’t need some help staying organized. You can create a custom spice rack, shelf, or pantry by simply customizing interior features in your existing cabinetry to better meet your storage needs.
We also recently talked about new trends in home lighting, which most certainly includes improved kitchen lighting. In addition to adding interior lighting to drawers and cabinets, you can install under cabinet lighting to improve visibility in work spaces. Illuminating those nooks and crannies is also a great way to move toward universal design, for easier aging-in-place.
Charging your electronics is another trend that is moving undercover, with more hidden options available than ever. Dedicate a drawer where mobile devices can be stashed away while charging, while still within easy reach. Not only does this reduce screen time, it frees up counter space and keeps a tangle of wires out of view.
Upgrading your cabinet and drawer interior features allows you to make the absolute most of the space available to you, and the improved efficiency can make your old kitchen feel brand-new again.
