Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Tambour doors in several locations keep often-used appliances and dishes, along with the family's favorite snacks, hidden.

Blum Aventos and Avanti hinges allow the upper cabinets to open upward to the ceiling. Brook also installed a special lower cabinet for the mixer (which is heavy) that easily lifts up and out.
Brook loves to put corner drawers in a kitchen. Not only do they take up otherwise wasted space, but the corner allows them to be extra deep.
Originally this wall was flat, with an underused walk-in pantry. Brook built in a custom chef's pantry with an adjacent bookshelf with wine storage. The two glass display cabinets on either side slightly curve in for a more finished look.
Use drawers more. The bottom cabinetry is made up of drawers. A lazy Susan in the corner cabinet helps the clients keep even more dishes or pantry items out of sight.

Have a cabinet and a window meet. This is an example of smart kitchen planning; the glass-front cabinets nestle into the narrow space between the window and the adjacent wall. Make sure you are leaving enough clearance for the cabinet door to open at least 90 degrees; factor in protruding knobs, moldings and windowsills
Use a tall lazy Susan in the pantry. Long a favorite way to address deep corners, this is a fabulous storage solution for those of you with a pantry.
Discover the new corner drawers. Speaking of lazy Susans, a modern substitute is a deep, clever drawer that goes around the bend.
