Kitchen with Above-Cabinet LED Lights, Corner Drawers, Embedded Magnets, and More
My kitchen project included removing a non-load bearing wall between the small kitchen and the dining room. All of the old cabinets were removed from this 40-plus year old kitchen before I made and installed the new cabinets. I wanted to include as many functional features within the available space but at the same time I wanted to have a number of unique features to keep me going at the project and to also serve as practical kitchen additions. Unique features include:
1. Corner drawers (I stand to be corrected but I believe these might have been the first of their kind other than commercial corner drawers made by Blum).
2. Above-cabinets faux stained glass and led lighting.
3. Rare earth magnets embedded in counter top and some vertical cabinet sections to support mating magnet paper towel holders, support note pads, hold counter corner kid protection pads.
4. Under-sink pull-out drawer that clearly separates plumbing from storage areas.
The kitchen also includes a pull out pantry unit and a pantry shelving systems accessed with a door. Here’s links to YouTube videos that show the corner drawers and the faux stained glass/led lighting:
(Before you check out the videos I should note that the stained glass with led lighting was the most recent addition – the video might be misleading time-wise if I didn’t mention this.)
