Creative Utensil Storage

We LOVE this hidden, but highly utilitarian, access to kitchen utensils. To the naked eye this base cabinet looks like a typical three-drawer configuration. But when you pull the top drawer open you find this great way to organize utensils without storing them on the countertop (and creating visual clutter).

        I have a cylinder type thing on my counter that holds large utensils like that, and I think I got it at IKEA or Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

        I actually purchased the inserts at a commercial kitchen supply store in town. The inserts are typically used in a steam tray. I have also seen the ones at Ikea and they would work fine as well!

            Hi Felicia! To answer your question, if the rug is big enough for the chairs to be pulled away from the table and to stay on the rug, no problem. If not, it can be tricky to pull the a chair forward once someone is sitting on it. Many of our customers are using square or rectangular rugs with round tables. A square or rectangular rug helps define a specific space, like in a dining room for instance.

            Good luck and feel free to post some pictures of your project!

                        Those of you that are nit picking over the (your) perceived excess quantity of utensils would appear not to be cooks. I have utensils in drawers, in a utensil holder on my counter, hanging from my pot rack and there still it isn't enough room. Kudos to Kirstin. I love the utensil holders in the drawer. The utensils are easily spotted, accessible, without digging, and stay clean. I wish I had the drawer space. Sadly, my kitchen has two, yes, only two drawers. Obviously designed by someone(a man?) who neither cooks or has never outfitted a proper kitchen. That reminds me of a documentary that I saw, years ago, with Julia Child shot in her kitchen. It was tiny and she had white pegboard on the walls to hang her utensils and pots and pans. I think about that sometimes when I complain about my kitchen, because, while I love to cook and do it a LOT, I am certainly no Julia Child. OK, enough of my 2 cents worth.

                                                      how wide of a drawer is this , and holders ? Are the utensils always getting caught when you pull it in and out and scatching cupboards ?

                                                              I love that this is a DRAWER rather than a cabinet. The Rev-a-shelf unit is only a cabinet from what I can tell. This utilizes the bottom space way more efficiently in my opinion.
