Many of these ideas are wonderful, but NEVER keep your spices above the stove. The heat will deteriorate them in no time.

When I designed my dream kitchen I took this idea I'd found in a magazine. I had my cabinet maker fabricate a plexi-glass insert so that my jars could be stored upright and not tumble when opening and closing the drawer. My next goal is to get one uniform jar style. This could be done to any existing drawer that is deep enough to hold a standard spice jar

We bought the Samsung, and EVERYTHING they have said about the noise of the Samsung, is correct. I have never experienced the pops, bangs, creaks, squeaks, etc., in any other refrigerator we have owned. We have bought 10 houses in our life, and more refrigerators than that, for the children when they moved out, as well, so that was a LOT of various brand, quieter refrigerators. We have NOT even attached the ice maker, for fear of a leak. I can make ice in an ice cube tray just as easily. RF260BEAESR

Diane Barry, that is exactly what happened to me. When I upgraded to the Pro Kitchenaid without the lifting head, mine would no longer fit on the lift. The one pictured above seems to be the Pro model, so I must have a smaller lift. When we put ours in 12 years ago, it was the only one offered. So, you are correct, make SURE you get a lift which will accomodate the largest, heaviest just in case in the future you want to go bigger!

Susie Davis: We were only offered one size mixer lift when we built our house - and honestly, I never even thought about the size. Hope they do make them in a variety of sizes now and if I had it to do again I'd put in the biggest, sturdiest one they made so I'd have options for the future. I never thought of leaving the lift in when I got my Pro model and using it for the food processor instead. I only thought - literally - mixer shelf! Oh well - happy to have the roll out shelves - only wish I'd put them in all my lower cabinets!

Here are four ways to add shelves that I have used:
1. Buy coated wire inserts and place where they will add function.
2. Where there is already a system for adjustable shelving, measure the existing shelving to the nearest 1/16, measure again, and have your local lumber yard or Lowes cut boards to size. While you are there, buy more brackets that will fit the existing system in your cupboards. I moved the old shelving all to one cupboard, and used the new shelving all in the now empty cupboard, making the difference virtually invisible.
3. Where there is no existing system for adjustable shelving, buy metal strips for the side or back of your cabinet and the shelf brackets to match. Then go to option 2.
4. Where the shelving is exposed, has no existing method to add shelving, and you want a clean, finished, look, buy small shelf supports that fit into holes you drill in the wall. You can buy tiny metal liners to tap into the holes for a more finished look. For an even more lux and light look, get your shelves cut to size at your local glass shop. To add even more light and visual space to your room, line the back of the shelving area with a mirror. Just stick it up with mirror mastic that the glass shop will sell you.

I have 5 or 6 doorways in my kitchen (some are french doors, so double wide, others are doorways not doors, depends how you count). None can be removed since they are the only access points in a 130 year old home, plus half of it is an adddition on a slab, so all my plumbing must stay on 1/2 my kitchen.... thoughts on a complicated matter? The doors are: The back door (french) only door to the back side of the house and our main entereance, half bath - the half bath is only accessible through the kitchen and doesn't touch and anyother rooms for me to change the door location, laundry room - again only touches the kitchen, so not able to eliminate that door, basement/cellar - only access point, entereance into the kitchem from the rest of the house (at base of stairs), so can't close that, and since my stairs block any other enterance to my kitchen I can't move it, and access to dinning room is an open doorway again only accessible via kitchen.... welcome to old, odd shaped houses and big additions.

Question: Our upper cabinets are only 12 inches deep. And, it seems that most over-the-range-mounted microwaves are about 16 inches deep.

This means that the unit will stick out over 4 inches beyond the face of the cabinets. That seems odd. It won't look right. Is that how they are meant to look?

Are there shallower microwaves?

Having a plumbed-in coffee maker isn't all that difficult OR expensive. We just completed a kitchen reno and I had a dedicated water line put in for my new Brew Express coffee maker. There's a built-in model, but mine sits on the countertop. They can easily be installed adjacent to a fridge that already has a water line for an ice maker. The cost of the Brew Express on Amazon is about $250.00.

We have purchased two Brew Express machines for our re-do on our 25 yr old kitchen. We could not justify $3200.00 either sourpus! And that machine does a million things...we just want coffee! We purchased the built in, plumbed in coffee makers. They fit between the wall studs and only stick out 3" from the backsplash! Can't wait to get them installed! They were $400 each...we needed a "his" and "hers" but we make so much coffee that I think this is one splurge that is justified for us!

Jan Moyer, I can't believe you have any client's left. You have represented yourself as self-righteous, judgmental and disrespectful. Did you forget that it's your clients who pay your salary and without them, you wouldn't have a job? Your perfectly organized, manicured life is obviously the neat and tidy package you choose to define yourself by but little reflection of the real person behind the persona. You're venting your anger in an inappropriate place and inviting more criticism into your life with your abrasive comments. Perhaps what you really need is someone to say they understand you, are proud of your talents, your hard work or your journey- the good and the bad. You won't likely get that with the comments you have written here. Belittling client's about the way they live is above and beyond what you were hired to do as a home designer/planner/organizer, don't you think? Frankly, I believe the people who are truly happy and well adjusted are able to simply live- in their own skin as well as the spaces they occupy. How sad it is for the person still trying to achieve perfection that puts their child's artwork in a neatly labeled binder after one day. How sad for the child who comes to believe that they truly aren't special enough to have a perpetual display of their art work- which is a testament of their hard work in school, a gift to you or an expression of their thoughts, dreams, ideas, creativity and imagination. That's EXACTLY what I want to see everyday and I will continue to hang them as a perpetual display for waaaaayyyy longer than a day because my daughter IS that special-all kids are. And here's a design idea: the most treasured artwork can go in picture frames. I love design ideas and incorporate the things that work well into my home. I am far from perfect but that's okay because I'm authentic. In fact, if I have an opportunity to spend time with my child, my dog, a friend or doing something meaningful or if I simply just don't have time to wash the growing pile of dishes in the sink that's okay too. The dishes can wait; and I don't even try to hide them!

Blueblond- we had one that wouldn't open all the way due to a wall, and it was very frustrating at times. I think right of the entry would be fine and would free up counter and/or cabinet space around the range. There might be times it is slightly inconvenient to trot across the kitchen, but it think it might be less of an issue than not being able to open the fridge all the way for trays and holiday meal items! I don't find myself needing to run back and forth from range to fridge often, so this may be a good option. Also, if you keep the microwave nearby, you can create a little bit of a snack or lunch zone out of the main prep and cooking area.

Kellystevens, your post had me laughing out loud. I, too, have a wall of windows with butter melting on the counters, and herbs wilting in the vase. Thanks for your post. If you don't mind, would share which fridge you have and if you've substituted wall cabinets and/or a pantry for your drawers? I am in the process/planning stage of flipping the kitchen to make it much more functional. The space is 30' long and for me that's too long to use just as a kitchen. I so agree that 3' of space on either side of the sink and cooktop is ideal, but I had fudged on that when planning the space. Thank you for that, and for your thoughts on the 27" oven.

Our 1965 ranch was all tradition and didn't live the way we do today but location, location, location. As a realtor, I see value in making a home your own. Most modern families want a home where every space is usable rather than the McMansions of yesteryear with too many square feet to keep clean. We took the wall down between our small kitchen and small dining room to create a large eat in kitchen with counter seating. The kitchen is open to the family room to keep a close eye on the kiddos and is great for entertaining. When we bought the home I wanted a large dining room for holidays and entertaining so I decided to turn the formal living room into a dining room. After 3 years of never using the dining room, we decided to turn into a home office that is a wonderful adult room. It feels a little more swanky, holds a bar stashed in repurposed bookcases, and is used for hours every single day. The room we were most recently missing was a bonus room for the kids to play. Our large family room housed all activities with creative and pretty toy storage solutions. We have 4 bedrooms and three children but our girls decided to share a room so they could have a space dedicated to play. Now the 4th bedroom houses two desks, lots of dual purpose storage (window seat and coffee table house toys, media center holds bins, and the daybed pulls out to a king size bed for sleepovers or guests and has drawers for toy storage as we'll). Lastly, we added a large deck and covered pergola overlooking our large fenced yard with trampoline, hammock and playset. The outdoors has become our bonus room. Now if I could just figure out a way to get some linen closet, utility storage and my laundry out of the garage we would be all set!

My "resale value" comment was a dig at the current "resale mania" that has turned our homes into beige lookalikes. To own some of these appliances you probably have to be in your "forever house" which means your children can take care of the disposition them. Or, have enough money that changing appliances is no more a problem than replacing bathroom towels. I gave up on the whole resale thing when it occurred to me that in a couple of years all kitchen counters will have to be butterflies encased in amber and 24" x 24" leather tiles will replace hand scraped hardwood.

I am still in the love camp even after reading this very honest and informative article. Here are my two slabs I purchased last year in anticipation of remodeling our kitchen. I fell in love with them early in our planning stages and had to have them They are not oiled or waxed yet. The fabricator wet them down so I could see how they will look when they are treated. Hopefully with any luck we look forward to a new kitchen sometime this fall.

These cabinet colors are beautiful. We just had cabinets installed - they are from the Carolina Heartwood Cabinetry line, and we chose one of their premium paint options. It is just beautiful (http://www.carolinaheartwoodcabinetry.com)

Many years ago someone (cannot remember who) told me to use the little ant bait pod/traps that say "safe to be stored near food" to prevent those dreaded weevils in flour, meal, etc. I have used them for all these years and they seem to work well for preventing the pests. I store my flours, meals, sugars, grits,rice and cooking oil that are opened in plastic canisters on the corner lazysusan in my base cabinets. Just put a trap on each shelf and one on floor of cabinet under the bottom tier. Does anyone else do this? I have enjoyed this thread.

I would think, like a crown molding, completely around the room. I assume the doors are cased in mission style as well?

They are picture frame style, 2 1/4 inch flat. I will pick up some 2x1 samples from my lumber yard to see how they work. Thanks!
