Must-Have When Building or Remodeling a Home: Kitchen Drawers Designs are Making Life Easier!

by Lisa Stewart 21 Sep 2017

Kitchens often function better with drawers instead of doors.


Making decisions about kitchen cabinetry is one of the biggest investments a homeowner makes when it comes to designing or renovating their kitchen. The “drawers versus door” debate continues. But I’m sold on drawers; here’s why!

1. Ease of use: Access to your kitchen supplies is one of the great benefits of designing with drawers. No more items hidden in the very back. Drawers make everything easily accessible without reaching, stretching or straining. Cleaning is a breeze! No need to shift items around while trying to find what you need because everything is right at your fingertips. 

2. Organization: You’re probably familiar with drawers for utensils and smaller items. Recent innovations in drawer design now allows them to handle the size and weight of large pots and pans. The drawers are customized for specific items with movable peg boards to secure plates, bowls and glasses. The components are adjustable to accommodate changes in the future. 

3. More storage: You'll be able to fit a lot more stuff into the same amount of cabinetry because drawers use every square inch of the cabinets’ interior box. Also, drawers are designed so everything fits neatly into its own spot. 

Over the years I’ve worked with many talented kitchen designers who always seem to be able to solve my clients’ kitchen storage dilemmas. Take time to learn about the latest in kitchen design and soon you’ll have the kitchen of your dreams.
