Today's blog post focuses on identifying and utilizing those unused spaces in your kitchen. We've been inspired by This Old House Magazine and found some creative and beautiful ways to... well, store your stuff, with built-in cabinetry.
An under-the-counter wine rack will keep your bottles within arm's reach. It also keeps the corks moist and is a beautiful way to display your favorite (or most used) vintages.
In new home construction and remodels we're seeing a reemergence of mud room storage. After all, your mudroom should be functional! The set-up (above) utilizes a storage bench with a hinged lid and plenty of space beneath for the tips of your kids' muddy boots. Wall hooks give jackets, bags and hats a home. And the top shelf adds even more storage.
Kitchen cabinets can contain more wasted space than you think. One of our favorite storage solutions is the pantry kit, above. If you're remodeling or building a new kitchen, the pantry kit is a must-have!

If you're building or remodeling your home, considering transforming that wasted space under the stairs into a functional and fabulous focal point. And who couldn't use a few more drawers and cabinets?
What item in your kitchen gets used more frequently than the plate? Plate rack cabinet inserts are a great way to put your plates within arm's reach, while displaying them beautifully. Want to double the functionality? Get some under-cabinet hooks to hang your morning coffee cups!
