You may have guessed that the kitchen was to revolve around the stove and all the details that are needed to cook on the marvelous one we choose. After much research, we choose a gas Viking 36 inch, six burner stove with one oven. Black and chrome, it was a thing of beauty and held the place of honor in the kitchen. We had a custom range hood designed with a 'double lung' exhaust system, so the kitchen never over heated while the stove was being used. We had a pot of stock on one of the back burners most of the time.
You can search the home improvement stores and hardware stores looking for that ideal set of cabinet handles. It takes a lot of leg work, but you get a first hand look at any hardware you are considering. If it is a local store, you are likely to know how good their return policies are, as well.
When you walk into a room for the first time, you may not consciously notice details like drawer knobs. If someone asked you what they were like, you may not be able to answer. Yet, they create an ambience that is unique to the kitchen. You may not know what you liked or did not like, but there will be either a feeling of harmony or a nagging sense of wrongness. The kitchen cabinet knobs make that big of a difference.
The use of shelves in base cabinets is poor ergonomics: It makes it very difficult to find items as it is impossible to gain an overview of the entire cabinet contents. It is quite common for a kitchen user to have to bend and stretch when searching for something. Equally they frequently have to remove the contents at the front in order to get to the items at the back.
Yes we're talking about that junk drawer. How many times have you gone to use a pen that doesn't work but it's still hanging out in there? Throw it away along with any dried up markers and sharpen the pencils so you can use them. Maybe there is a tool box or bag those tools belong to out in the garage? If you can't remember what those spare parts belong to throw those out as well! There may still be a need for various manuals and one way to store them is to keep them all in a large zip lock bag. You could even relocate all the contents of this drawer to a desk drawer if one is available.
