Toe Kick Storage

It’s out of sight and out of mind. But, everywhere you have a base cabinet, you have an unused cavity below in the space behind the toe kick. This provides an opportunity to create storage. Yes, it’s pretty shallow and you have to stoop but a toe kick drawer is perfect for less frequently used kitchen utensils, or only occasionally used platters (think Thanksgiving turkey), or emergency supplies like candles, batteries and flash lights. And don’t forget Fido. A toe kick drawer is also perfect for keeping pet food dishes contained and out of sight… 


La Quinta Kitchen

Cabinets of the Desert recently completed this kitchen in PGA West. For the wall cabinets, the client selected a shaker door style finished in “Alabaster” paint. The island has the same door style but is finished in a beautifully complementary “Shadow” paint. The overall effect is warm, welcoming, and restful.


K-Cup Organizer by Rev-A-Shelf

Rev-A-Shelf has come up with a 30 K-Cup organizer. This is a solid wood insert that simply drops into a standard 18″ or 24″ cabinet drawer. Or it can be trimmed down to any size you want. Your single serve coffee maker is a great piece of equipment but now you do not have to put up with the typical K-Cup clutter that typically goes with it. You can find this organizer at the Rev-A-Shelf website here.

Lenova’s Aqualogic Ozone Faucet for Kitchen Cleanliness
