Have you ever considered using that wasted space UNDER your cabinets? Hidden by that toe kick panel is a goldmine in terms of storage space. Add some short custom drawers to store things like cookie sheets and muffin tins. Woah!
Built-In Drawers between wall studs. I love this idea for the bathroom. Since the drawers wouldnt be very deep, its the perfect place to store all the little things that you keep out for convenience, but look cluttered. This way theyre hidden, but still easy to get to.
