Like a workshop, the well-designed
kitchen needs well-designed storage to
function efficiently. In this column, I'll
describe some of the cabinet storage
accessories I offer my customers to
make the daily work of cooking and
caring for the kitchen a lot easier.
For customers who want clean,
uncluttered storage space for cutlery,
utensils, and gadgets, I often use single
and multi-tier drawer divider systems
(see Figure 1, top).
These trimmable components can
be custom cut (a table saw with a finetooth
blade works well) to fit nearly
any size drawer opening. A cutout in
the back end of the drawer allows the
top tray of the multi-tier variety to
slide back, revealing the contents of
the lower tray.
