This kitchen corner is given new purpose with a custom-built banquette. HGTV fan KeithC constructed the seating area with hinged lids to provide storage for entertaining essentials and seldom-used kitchen gadgets.
Attached to the kitchen island, vintage storage compartments keep kitchen gadgets neatly stowed away. Gorgeous warm wood cabinets feature integrated stainless steel appliances for a sleek, classic look, and a globe pendant light sparkles above the island which has room for three to dine or converse with the host while they prep and cook.
With so many gadgets used throughout the day, it's smart to find a way to integrate smartphones and tablets into your kitchen design. This modular command center allows homeowners to keep electronics within reach yet off the counter, thanks to under-cabinet outlets and tablet/smartphone cradles.

To create a functional cabinet out of those difficult corner cabinets, designers added two custom, pull out shelves. Not only does this double the usable space in the cabinet, it puts all of the homeowners gadgets within reach, creating a storage solution that truly makes life easier.
