  1. Do you offer kitchen organizing as well? thanks for the inspiration Lisa!

  2. Absolutely, sometimes an outside eye with no emotional attachment takes the roadblocks out of getting organized.

    YES! I recommend drawers to every residential client every place I can. Most people have a hard time moving from the “traditional” door and drawer base cabinet. When they do, they LOVE it. Thanks for the great article!

    Great post! Drawers are also much better than opening a pair of doors and then having to roll out a sliding shelf to get items.

  5. Thank you for confirming this, Stacy. As a cabinetmaker you have the inside track on what works. When I think of all the unused air space in a lower cabinet, it just seems like such a waste of money unless they fit a very specific purpose. I love my drawers under my cooktop, my pots are right where I need them and can fit so much more in a drawer than a door front cabinet.
