Charging Drawers

Keep your kitchen counter free of all those wild and tangled cords by adding in a charging drawer with an outlet. Make sure you include pronged outlets and USB plug-ins so you have room for every type of charging device.

Pocket Doggy Doors

Ban removable doggy doors from your kitchen entryways. Install hidden pocket doors that can keep your furry loved ones in or out as well as any knee-high babies from toddling where they shouldn’t be.

Curves and Edges With Interest

Don’t get stuck in the rut of squared-off windows and hard lines. Your kitchen can be fresh, welcoming, and unique from the others with just a few small additions. Add a curved window as a focal point, or a curved kitchen hood for additional interest.

Natural light should always play a part in the best custom cabinets for kitchens, not only for the functional work it does but the beauty it lends the space.

Hidden Range Hoods

When designing your kitchen, most people plan to have a fan unit above their cooking range. Gone are the days of having to have your hood look like a boring, industrial, cookie-cutter range hood. There are so many ways to hide or disguise your hood range with a cool kitchen design. Match your cabinets or take this opportunity to add texture with stone. We’ve got a whole post dedicated to Oven Hood ideas, if you really want to get your creative wheels turning.

Hidden Pet Bowls and Pet Food Storage

If you have a few 4-legged friends that require meals or if you need a little boost in height to reach that top shelf, do yourself a favor and build it in!  In your kitchen island, or below that really high cupboard, use the bottom drawer to build a pet feeding station for bowls and a pull out for pet food storage.

Functional (But Hidden!) Utensil Drawer

If you hate the look of a cluttered countertop, here’s a cool kitchen idea for you. Try building a built-in utensil drawer to keep all your cooking tools close, but not distracting.

Try Vertical Slot Pull Out Storage

Certain items lend themselves to being stored vertically—think about cookie sheets, muffin tins, and cutting boards. Vertical slot storage means that your cabinet includes dividers that allow you to partition the space so you can easily store 2-3 items in each slot, making them easy to find and remove whenever you need them. We can also take this idea to the next level by creating a pullout drawer to house this vertical storage so it’s even easier to access. This is a great option for those high cabinets above a refrigerator. 

Another pullout storage option is great for spices and smaller pantry staples. A tall vertical cabinet that pulls out to give you easy access is a great use of small spaces.
