Kitchen Planning Like A Pro

If you’re going to all the work of renovating a kitchen, you might as well make it worth the effort – even if your custom kitchen dreams don’t have a dream budget to match.

Though they may only be visible behind closed doors and drawers, a few well-planned extras can add a layer of luxury to basic big box cabinets.

Over at The Farm Chicks, Serena turned double-decker drawer space into a chopping block with a built-in garbage shoot for scraps (the drawer underneath houses a compost bin).

Better Homes & Gardens has no shortage of custom-kitchen-on-a-budget ideas, but this one stood out for its organizational simplicity. Not only does it offer double the storage of a typical cutlery drawer organizer, you can size the slots to fit other culinary accoutrements too. Check out more ideas here.

What special “just for me” feature would you add to your kitchen if you could?
