A trick to look

Using light colors in your cabinets,shelves and walls,you create the illusion of a larger space without it compromising storage capacity.Add a dash of color in simple things like the gable or even decorative items to prevent the space is monochrome.Another great trick is to give more depth to install cabinets with glass doors.This type of mobile storage serves both as decoration,just add interior lights to effect "showcase".So you give style to your cabinets and not lose any single inch of precious space they have.

Taking advantage of all areas of the grandstand

The centerpiece of a kitchen countertop offers various spaces,in addition to being an important area for performing the activities of daily life.However,often the sides and corners of this furniture are ignored when storing products.Wine bottles,decorative items and seasonings fit perfectly on the bench.

Even if you do not have a central island in your kitchen,the unused spaces of cabinets and shelves can be used and even enhanced with the use of small shelves and space dividers.

Style hidden

Angles and support can give more class in your kitchen cabinet.But with the addition of these items,usable space can be compromised,as drawers or doors can be lowered to accommodate these treats.Keep some utensils on display shelves and store canned goods and spices in general.

My sister made her own island this way (but she had an extra piece of counter top). It's great because there are drawers and space to put things.
I have been considering doing this too. I saw some inexpensive ones at IKEA, walmart, and target (look online) Also, people get rid of cabinets all the time. Check CL adds.
