Is there room for an island in your kitchen remodel? How do you increase your counterspace in the RIGHT places so itll be useful? Or, do you need to implement universal design? See: The Thirty-One Kitchen Design Rules, Illustrated - Modern Kitchen
Kitchen Storage Ideas - Clear the Countertops Stash dishwashing supplies out of sight. This narrow pullout provides sink-adjacent storage for dish soap, scrub brushes and hand towels. Plus, a towel rack allows the dish towel to dry after use.
Southern Charm kitchen island- bottom colored with the top in hardwood that matches the flooring. I like the light too. Another idea: white kitchen and cream countertop with a turquoise or blue-grey island coupled with accents in that color.
Organize cleaning supplies under the kitchen sink with built in drawer organizers. Can also use same idea with beauty supplies in the bathroom. I like this drawer cause it's more childproof than cupboards.
