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.
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.
We looked and planned the movements around the kitchen, what we wanted to do with the space and how we wanted the kitchen to function. So, one week, we ordered a 40 yard dumpster to be delivered to the house. We knew about these as when we moved in, we had filled five of these babies with junk from inside the house as well as the yard. We checked with each other hoping that we were really sane, picked up sledge hammers and started on the walls. What fun it was, tearing away what had become a kitchen that we did not like and could not stand.
