Column: Custom cabinetry storage options
Storage solutions have evolved tremendously in the home in the last few years. There seems to be a place for just about everything these days. Ironing stations, recycling drawers, and spice cabinets are just a few of the ways cabinet companies are meeting the unique needs of homeowners, especially in the kitchen.
One of the most important steps in deciding what type of storage you may need is identifying how you use your home. For example, do you like to cook and need a handy drawer to keep all your pots and pans? Or do you have a big family and need a well-organized pantry? Once you’ve identified your most important needs it’s time to analyze all your options.
