Coffee Stations, Cozy Nooks and Other Spaces You’d Love to Have in the Kitchen

You have a lot to accomplish in one day and your home should be set up to make your life easier and more enjoyable.

Let’s look at the kitchen–it’s one of the most multi-functional spaces you have. It’s where families gather to cook, eat, do homework, surf the internet and hangout with friends. While kitchens are for performing tasks, they’re also for showing off your unique style.

Raise a Toast to Solid Wood Wine Bar Cabinets

If you don’t have room for the wine cellar of your dreams, consider custom built cabinets in your kitchen. Wine lovers can show their appreciation of the vine with cabinetry that incorporates vertical bottle storage and shelving to display favorite glassware. Other popular features found in wine bar kitchen cabinets include X-shaped wine racks, stemware holders and a beverage cooler.

Coffee Bar Cabinetry Lets You Be the Barista

Is coffee the best part of waking up? If so, then why not create your own coffee station for really happy mornings. Custom cabinets, countertops or floating shelves can store your coffee maker, mugs and accessories. Perhaps a built-in non plumbed coffee system is more your style. Miele makes an excellent unit with a classy, streamlined look and it offers all the bells and whistles of a Starbucks brew.

Get Cozy with a Breakfast Nook that Doubles as Kitchen Storage

While you’re enjoying a fresh cup of joe, what could be more inviting than a cozy seating nook built under a large window or in a corner? Seating nooks or benches go nicely with dining tables and cushioned chairs on the opposite side. Incorporate storage underneath for even more practical uses. Whether you have a small or large space to work with, custom cabinetmakers can offer kitchen cabinet ideas on how to best utilize the area.

Accomplish More with an Island

When homeowners remodel a kitchen, one of their top requests is an island. These multi-taskers add storage, extra work surfaces and much needed seating all in one convenient location. They also bring style and creativity to a room. Decorative turned legs accent corners and beadboard highlights back panels. Stow away appliances like microwaves and mixers inside the islands and add customized features like pullout dog food drawers. Don’t forget to punctuate the island with fashionable pendent lights that further set the style of your kitchen.
