Houzz is the new way to design your home.
desk in kitchen
cabinet doors that roll back -- for kitchen office?
Have the desk moonlight as a baking center. If you don't want to sacrifice a whole section of your kitchen for a desk that you might use a few times a week, let it do double-duty as a baking center, bar or serving station. All you have to do is drop the counter down 6" from the standard counter height of 36" to 30" and voila, you have the perfect height for both baking and writing.
2. Be shallow. Instead of wall cabinets, I like to install shallow floor-to-ceiling pantries. They're an efficient use of an interior wall, where you can't have a window anyway. By limiting the depth to just 6 to 9 inches, you are forced to line up your dry goods in a single row, making everything easier to find.
Or make the best of your corners. If you can't avoid corner cabinets, then at least make them as functional and easy to use as possible with fully rotating lazy Susans or clever corner drawers.
