6 Creative Ideas To Customize Your Kitchen Cabinets

Are you going to install custom kitchen cabinets soon? If so, this is an opportunity to install some unique features that your cabinets were lacking before. Here are a few things to consider as you build your dream kitchen. 

Wine Cubes

If you frequently drink wine, you can actually build some wine storage directly into your cabinets. Wine cubes can take up the width of a drawer but have small separated spaces to place wine bottles. It will keep the wine off the counter, but still keep it very accessible.

Broom Closet

One oddly shaped item that is often left out in the kitchen is the broom, which is because there is typically not a good place to put it. Consider a very thin cabinet that can be used to store brooms, mops, and other tall items. You'll appreciate having a spot to store these tall items so that they will not be seen.

Pull-Out Cabinet Drawers

The back of a cabinet is not a place where things should be difficult to reach. Installing pull-out cabinet drawers is a nice way to make things easily accessible since you can easily reach everything in the cabinet. This is especially helpful for bottom cabinets that would otherwise be difficult to reach. 

Mixer Shelf

Your large mixer is an item that doesn't need to stay out on your counters all year round. It's possible to install a mixer shelf to hide it. The mixer will hide in a bottom cabinet, and when you open the drawer, you can actually pull the shelf out and upward to make it flush with your kitchen countertops. This makes the mixer easy to access and encourages you to use it more as a result.

Tiered Cutlery Rack

Your forks, knives, and spoons likely rest in a drawer that is much deeper than it needs to be. Get back some of that storage space by installing a tiered cutlery rack. This rack sits inside the drawer and slides back to reveal more storage beneath it. You can keep things organized better since everything has its own space. 

Built-In Cutting Board

Another feature that can save space is a built-in cutting board. It pulls out from the countertop and prevents the need to store the large cutting surface on your countertops. Place this near a trash can and you can sweep food waste directly into the trash.
