duboce park flat - kitchen

A mix of walnut veneer and ivory laminate cabinets gives this kitchen a natural balance of light and warmth. An in-cabinet dish rack above the sink is a custom detail that was incorporated to meet the clients' needs, along with a compost drawer above the trash pull-out. Up lighting, down lighting and pendants combine to provide a well-lit kitchen environment.

I would also like to know the dimensions of the compost bin.

The cabinet builder chose this standard size bin to fit within the dimensions of the drawer. I don't know the size, but it's about 5" deep.

This one doesn't have a lid, but since it's a custom design, there's always the option of choosing a bin with a lid that sets into the top, as long as that bin has a lip along the top. To answer your question thought, it's a small enough container that it's emptied/rinsed regularly and doesn't have time to stink things up. If it were an issue, I'd recommend adding a horizontal seal along the back of the drawer face.

Would this work as a "sattelite" garbage pail? - In my new kitchen, cooktop will be across the aisle from the sink in the island. This is the first time I will not have a sink on the same run of counter as the cooktop and won't be able to clean the countertop around the cooktop by sweeping things into the sink! I am worried that I will end up with stuff falling on the floor as I try to sweep it into my hand to take to the trash pail. I am used to having either the trash or a sink in every work area and it really facilitates clean-up. I am thinking that this little compost drawer would be perfect as a secondary trash pail that I could sweep into near the cooktop. I've never seen this before, in any kitchen store I've been in. Can you reveal who makes it or how it was constructed if custom? Thanks.

Why don't you have another small back up prep sink on the same run as the cooktop? Or at least a garbage pail pull out or through counter on that run?

This is definitely a good solution for that problem needing an immediate place to catch crumbs and other prep leftovers. Though this was a custom job by our cabinet builder, the idea is quite simple so I'm sure a regular drawer could easily be converted. We took the drawer above the trash pull-out and inserted a 'lid' piece across the top --this should be something very wipe/clean friendly like melamine or acrylic (for spills.) Choose a common-sized bin that will fit in the depth of the drawer. The bin needs to have a lip along the top so that it can drop into an opening in the 'lid' piece and be fully supported. You can easily lift this in and out to empty the compost.

Our cabinet builder made it custom to fit a typical plastic bin size. The bin slips in and is supported by the lip around its top.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Make going green a habit by placing the recycling bin next to the trash can. This terrific recycling hub has a built-in compost drawer paired with a pullout trash can and a general recycling drawer. It makes for easy cleanup without taking up valuable floor space.
