Playing with drawer and counter heights can add more storage space too. Make use of the leftover space beside deep refrigerators by deepening upper cabinets and counters, and taking cabinets all the way to the ceiling. Keep your countertop, island and cabinetry lined up and simple in design. “Linear alignments will make the room feel longer, as there are fewer visual interruptions to catch the eye,” says Ogawa.Shop kitchen storage and organization products
