Special Features

It may not surprise you that the most common request heard from a new client is for a kitchen island. It’s very typical for people to dream of an island that’s the focal point of their kitchen and is big enough for food preparation, extra storage and seating. However, not all kitchens are large enough to accommodate the ideal work space. Fortunately for those island dreamers out there with small kitchens, there are other special feature options.

Specialized Storage

Custom cabinets, deep drawers, dividers, and inserts allow you to organize anything from spices to pots and pans. We offer a variety of stylish storage options to make your area both functional and beautiful.

Pot Filler

If you enjoy cooking, a pot filler is a convenience you’ll love. A pot filler faucet is a swing-out faucet on a long, jointed arm, generally mounted over or near the stove.

Many people use pot fillers for more than cooking: getting water for tea or coffee, adding water to soups, and making gravy.

Enclosed Trash and Recycling

Trash and recycling bins take up floor space, often smell bad, and are a temptation for pets. Hidden storage is ideal. Custom cabinets can include compartments for your waste containers.

Statement Light Fixtures

Homeowners are falling for light fixtures that add a “wow” factor. More than just a light source, larger lights are a decor focal point. For maximum impact, use statement fixtures in a central area, such as over an island or dining room table or in an entrance.

Well-Lit Cabinetry

A common mistake is relying on one ceiling-mounted fixture to illuminate the entire kitchen. Homeowners are having professionals design and install extensive lighting below, above and inside their cabinets as well as recessed can lights. A combination of light fixtures offers the best mood-setting capabilities.

Coffee Bar

Attention, hot beverage fans: You’ll love having a special area for your favorite drinks. Stylish and functional kitchen coffee stations stock everything you need in one convenient spot.

Walk-In Pantry

Transform a mess into a storage success with a walk-in pantry. There aren’t any strict rules about the size of the area or what you can keep there. Customize your pantry to suit your home and lifestyle. You won’t know how you lived without this storage solution.

Narrow Pull-Out Drawer

Sneak in storage with narrow pull-out drawers between cabinets or appliances. The slim kitchen cabinet feature allows you to make the most of a sliver of space alongside your range or at the end of the island. This pull-out drawer includes divided storage containers for utensils and shelves with guards that help keep spice jars in place.

Pet-Friendly Kitchen Cabinet Features

Your pet is an important part of the family, so ensure your kitchen design meets their needs, too. Consider built-in storage solutions for pet food, dishes, beds, and more. Consider dog dishes that can slide out from the island during feeding times but otherwise remain out of the way.

Island Cooktop

With ovens located elsewhere, the cooktop can be placed on the kitchen island. When this kitchen feature is built into a large island, you also get generous work surfaces and room for amenities below, such as a warming drawer or storage for pots and pans. Opt for a statement-making range hood or install a downdraft exhaust system for a more streamlined look.

On-Counter Garage

Use an on-counter garage to house appliances you often use but don’t always want in plain sight. An appliance garage opens to reveal a coffee maker, which can be pulled out onto the counter space in front when in use. An outlet inside the cabinet keeps cords contained.

Tray Storage Cabinet

Designate a cabinet for storing racks, cookie sheets, pizza pans, and cutting boards. Instead of precariously stacking them, use vertical dividers to keep these flat items neatly arranged and easily accessible.

The Drop Zone

The idea of a drop zone is a fixed place where you can drop things when you enter the house. The mail, the car keys and more. Depending on the space you have to work with, it might even include a place to drop backpacks or your purse. Drop zones are often placed in mudrooms, but work well in kitchens as well.
