The other feature is that they are positioned under the bed. Thus, they are called "chest of drawers" and "drawer pedestal bed" respectively. Both are usually made up of wood. While the chest of drawers can possess a fancy exterior, the drawer pedestal bed stores things, giving the room a more spacious, maintained and uncluttered look. The purpose of these drawers is to complement the appearance, need and requirement of the room.
There are now many clever solutions for the 'blind kitchen corner cabinet' available. Utilising this area for items that you don't need to access regularly is often the best solution. However, if you don't have the luxury of space then products such as a Lazy Susan (and the pull-out Lazy Susan) can greatly increase the accessible space. A wide range of other solutions are also now available such as sliding, swinging or expanding systems.
The counter heights were at a special height as we are both tall, so the counter was perfect for working on for us. This is sometime to be considered if you have planning to keep your home for a long time or if are you remodeling the kitchen to increase the selling value. We also put carpet in the kitchen. The rest of the house had either hard wood or marble flooring, but the kitchen was to be soft under foot for the standing time is greater there than anywhere else in the house.
We had decided to open up the kitchen - that it would only have two walls with an island that was filled with drawers - big drawers with heavy file cabinet drawer slides (The things that filing drawers use to pull in and out smoothly while supporting the heavy load of paper, files and books.) They can support over 100 pounds each and we thought they would work fine to support drawers that held large stand mixers, iron pots and pans as well as dishes. We built drawers that were tall enough to hold big bowls and other tall things that are used in the kitchen. We also made drawers that were deep enough to hold baking pans and all sorts of things for cooking. There were even spice drawers with angled racks in the drawer so the labels could be easily read.
There were so many things to be thought about and planned for during the reconstruction. We plunged head first into the project with little experience and our heads full of remodeling ideas, just an ideal of what we want the kitchen layout to be.
