Have you ever had to crawl into a kitchen cabinet just to get something out of it? Once the object is in hand you sit on the floor, pots and pans strewn around and now you have a mess all because you wanted something not at hand. Image via Homesick Blog
We know to expect a drawer for silverware and a few other kitchen tools, these are a no brainer. Drawers under a cooktop have always made sense to me. They are just easy.
For me organization means what you want, when you want it and where you need it + no clutter.
When I was at the Kitchen and Bath Show, a found myself in the midst of an ah-ha moment while fondling the cabinetry at the Poggenpohl booth. Containers, pepper mills, spice jars, bins, knife storage, and cutting boards – oh my! Check out this breadbox with tile cover for perfect bread keeping. This was our must have hit of the whole show: the box to house foil, plastic wrap, parchment paper and more. How stylish is this? And has a serrated edge which actually has some bite to it.What Brandon Smith is trying to show is Poggenpohl has included lighting underneath the above drawer to make it easier to see inside the lower and deeper drawers. Interior designers and Kitchen & Bath designers at a Twitter chat live from the Poggenpohl booth commenting on the new Artesio design we are sitting amongst. There I am as we get ready for #KBtribechat. Please follow along on Twitter every Wednesday afternoon from 2-3pm est. One stop learning for all Kitchen and Bath related products and design.
To summarize anyone with organizational issues is sure to be cured with drawer organization. Everything is at hand, in place and easily accessible. The drawers can graduate from shallow to deep as they progress down the cabinet. Poggenpohl really has something here. To be fair other cabinet companies are jumping on the organization bandwagon too, but this was the most attractive and comprehensive use of drawer storage I’ve seen.
