5. Use fewer but larger cabinets. For this 102-square-foot kitchen, designer Sarah Kahn Turner created a more uncluttered look by installing fewer but larger, more efficient deep drawers and corner cabinets with swing-out shelves.See more of this kitchen
AFTER: For a more uncluttered look, Turner put in fewer but larger cabinets and paneled the appliances. She replaced the pantry door with a concealed spring-loaded touch door that also made the wall appear longer and the kitchen larger. She says the door was an easy add-on and cost-effective. The hardware cost around $500 and the solid-core door, about $200, plus the cost of labor. While the overall size of the kitchen didn’t change, the cabinets did move about 6 inches into the living room. Turner removed a small but tall wall and absorbed part of one of the structural posts into the island.She couldn’t easily move the electrical and plumbing, though, because the unit sits on a concrete slab and the homeowner didn’t want to muck with the existing hardwood floors. But the homeowner preferred having the sink at the island anyway.
