This organized home office is conveniently located in a kitchen nook, which gives the adults of the house a central place to pay bills and take care of business, as seen on HGTV's Design Star. "Nobody's dream is to have their kids' stuff strewn all over the kitchen," judge Vern Yip says. "Just because it's supposed to look lived-in doesn't mean it has to look messy."
Built-in cabinets and cubbies are an ideal way to create intelligent storage and organization in this transitional kitchen. A row of glass doors provide style and a place to showcase personal glassware while allowing the rooms to feel open.
This family needed plenty of space for food prep, food storage and organization, so designers created an open plan, eat-in kitchen that had all the features the homeowners needed to create a functional space. Cabinets and countertops span the back wall of the room, providing plenty of counter and cabinet space, while two commercial sized, French Door refrigerators add tons of room for food storage. The final touch in this lovely kitchen was the over sized kitchen island with lower cabinets on three sides and a large, marble countertop for additional storage and work space. The island is even wired with electricity to make the feature even more functional.
With kitchen cabinets surrounding the refrigerator, on one side of the kitchen island and on both sides of the peninsula, designers truly maximized the storage and organizational space. They kept the design of the space simple, keeping the countertops clean so that the space remains functional and contemporary.
Instead of precarious stacks of cookware piled in the back of a cabinet, store your everyday pots in a handy drawer. This drawer features two separate sections: a deep area for housing big pots and a shallow roll-out for storing potholders, lids and trivets. Rich wood and sleek stainless steel hardward make this storage space visually appealing design element. Photo courtesy of Dura Supreme Cabinetry
Warm tones from the wood cabinets and polished tile floors soften this modern room, creating a comfortable cooking space. The mottled glass-front cabinets bring a lightness to the space without fully revealing the dish ware -- and possible disorganization -- that lies behind.

In the center of this small kitchen, designers brought in an undersized, rustic kitchen island that would add a rich, wood tone to the neutral space as well as contribute storage and counter space to the room's design.

The homeowners wanted an all white kitchen that is stylish and functional for their family. To achieve this goal, designers added a bit of texture with custom cabinetry, and a splash of glimmer with a metallic and white, penny round tile backsplash. For function, plenty of storage was added with ceiling height cabinets, dual kitchen islands and plenty of counter space. These elements blend together to give the homeowners the kitchen of their dreams.
Pull-out baskets are the perfect spot to store potatoes and onions in this kitchen. The cabinets were designed to be deeper than industry standards to maximize storage capacity, increase countertop depth area and accommodate all of the deluxe pull-outs and cabinet organization products.
