It’s time, y’all. Things are going back into all of my kitchen cupboards. In fact, as of yesterday we have all of the drawers installed.
This is one of those rare opportunities to make my kitchen exactly how I would always want it to be. We spent exorbitant amounts of time researching kitchen efficiency and innovative storage solutions. We have designed a pull-out pot rack cabinet like this one, will be adding a garbage and recycling pull out, a divided baking sheet cabinet, and big, deep baking drawers.
Exciting? Yes. But also totally daunting. With all of these customized storage solutions, I feel like I owe it to my kitchen to plan everything out just right before putting items back onto shelves and into drawers (although it is tempting to just throw my stuff in there and call it done, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS RENOVATING). DanO and I have played out a moderately disgusting number of hypotheticals to get down to the most efficient layout. Where will we most use this? Where will this be easiest to access? Will all of these fit into one single cupboard? And most importantly, where should our new junk drawer go?
In the culmination of our awesome night life, we actually made a chart last Friday while we brainstormed where things should go. (File under: not your average 20 somethings.)
