Keep counters clear and the look of your kitchen flawless by stashing small appliances away. Here a spring-loaded shelf in an island cabinet easily moves the mixer to countertop height. An outlet inside the cabinet eliminates messing with the cord. A deep pullout drawer below corrals other small appliances into one central location.
We used to have a blind corner here and it was mostly useless. The new hinged door gave us a nice, wide opening to the cabinet. And we went with shelves instead of a Lazy Susan to store pots and pans. My husband added some dividers to make the most efficient use of the space. He even built-in a little area to store the lids for the pots.
