A long counter of drawers with no upper cabinets allows the owners of this transitional kitchen to prep and cook with a clear view into the living and dining area. Bright yellow barstools add a sunny touch to the gray color scheme. Design by Albertsson Hansen Architecture, Ltd.
Cabinets form the backbone of this sleek transitional kitchen. Configure the cabinetry to make the most use of your kitchen's size and floor plan. In this kitchen, the base cabinets primarily consist of drawers, which brings items out to you instead of you having to dig through less accessible standard cabinets.
More and more homeowners are opting for deep storage drawers in their kitchens rather than base cabinets; heavy pots and pans are much easier to access when they’re stored in drawers. Here, metal dividers keep cookware and lids separate.
Bring new functionality into your kitchen by maximizing the countertop space with thoughtful storage solutions, such as counter-level drawers. This kitchen by David Heide Design Studio, based in Minneapolis, was a 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association award winner and features custom drawers and cabinets. But you could buy a simple modular drawer (or two) and paint it to match your cabinets for a streamlined look.
Both sink mirrors are flanked by shelves of storage hidden behind tall, slender doors that are configured in the vanity to mimic columns. The central section of the vanity has a make-up drawer and more storage behind the mirror. The base of the cabinetry is filled with a wall of cabinetry and drawers.
The sink base cabinet extends three inches farther than the other cabinets and has a bottom drawer to increase storage and functionality in this warm kitchen. A stainless steel sink and faucet sit beneath the window, which is decorated with a beige roman shade. Under-cabinet lighting illuminates the neutral granite countertops, providing a well-lit workspace for preparing meals.
The lighter natural oak base of the island coordinates with the drawers by the range, and provides contrast for the island’s matte Mesabi Black Granite counter and the matte black cabinets flanking the range.
This dual sink, contemporary master bathroom vanity has a blue painted base cabinet with drawers and modern hardware, white marble countertops and subway tile backsplash, modern sconces and mirrors, and a gray upholstered vanity stool.
The client allowed the designers to take a closet to house the refrigerator and built into the wall with pantry space to the right. A corner drawer base was added to provide the homeowners with drawer space. The kitchen was opened up to the dining room, but cabinets were installed between the two rooms to provide ample double sided storage and countertop space for serving.
To create separate storage for each person in this master bathroom, two top wall cabinets were added on each side of the double vanity with adjustable shelves and convenient outlets. In the center, base cabinet drawers offer storage for common items. Towel bars placed under each sink provide easy access with a shelf below for extra towels.
Plentiful storage was a priority for this kitchen renovation, but it needed to be right at hand. The island provides a spot for homework, projects and dining, with storage built into the cabinet base. The shelf houses cookbooks, textbooks and homework, while drawers hold table linens.
Tall wood wainscoting paired with grasscloth give this den a cozy feel. Trimmed with large timbers and steel headers, the hard-edged and soft materials balance each other for a rustic and comfortable environment. The cabinet is a repurposed set of drawers paired with a custom metal base.
Making this HGTV Smart Home 2019 kitchen super user-friendly, the base cabinets include a hanging pan organizer with lid storage in a black nickel finish, a soft close mixer/appliance lift and a 50-quart double pullout waste container system. The kitchen also includes a 24-inch double cutlery drawer that keeps utensils organized.
