Kitchen and family room renovation

Sarah Lyman Kravits

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kravits added a simple shelving unit behind their basement door. Underneath, she added a slot for extra grocery bags. The idea came to her when she and her husband were trying to figure out what to do with an awkward area right before the basement stairs. In the process of pulling the beadboard off, they noticed several inches of space between the board and the wall, which didn't go all the way down to the floor. "I was looking for a place to put all of our paper bags, and the idea of a paper bag slot just came to me," she says.More: 23 Inspiring Real-Life KitchensMore kitchen guidesBrowse 30,000+ kitchen photos
