It’s no secret that kitchens today have to be more than just a place to prepare and eat our food. They also need to have the kitchen design flexibility to fulfill other functions such as being a place to entertain family and friends evenings and weekends, or even quickly transform into a home office from 9 to 5 on weekdays.
Kitchens that do more
In early 2020, with the global onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, suddenly many homeowners found themselves isolated for many months within their homes. This situation forced them to be resourceful in finding ways to utilize rooms, in many cases being their kitchens, to do more than they had probably ever been called upon to do before.
The term “pivoting” didn’t only apply to businesses, but also to regular folks who changed their daily commute from a 30-60 minute car ride each morning and evening, to a quick trip from the bedroom to the kitchen in order to get onto an early morning video call.
Now, this sounds all fine and well, but what about the people who weren’t able to transition so easily from residential to business where their kitchens are concerned?
This is where kitchen design flexibility is truly an asset.
Thomasville gives you more
This is a perfect example of how the design flexibility of Thomasville cabinets can help you easily transform your kitchen into something else whenever you need to. Another reason why Thomasville gives you more. Let’s take a closer look at a kitchen that ticks all the boxes for this type of flexible functionality.
The kitchen featured in this post is a Thomasville Nouveau style called Fallon. It is presented in a brand new, gorgeous green opaque painted finish on maple which is called Conifer. The image above shows a clever use of these cabinets with the addition of banquette seating at the dining room table, which is just adjacent to the main kitchen.

Adding accent colours to kitchen designs has become the norm today, and our featured kitchen is no exception. Note the addition of a clever set of base cabinets located conveniently close to the dining area, also featuring the Fallon shaker-style door, however this grouping has been finished in another of our newer opaque finishes called Pavement.
This “servery” makes a convenient space for dinner parties, snacks, or even just for displaying some family photos or special keepsakes for all to see. Above the servery are a couple of Thomasville floating shelves for even more always-visible storage, with these additions featured in the Pebble finish.
From the outside, the Pavement servery seems pretty normal, with two full-height single door cabinets flanking a set of handy drawers, but inside is something perhaps unexpected, yet for the individual we spoke of earlier who’s working-from-home, something that is a real game changer!
Hidden Home Office Storage
With their laptop setup on the dining room table (now a desk), and a fresh cup of coffee from the kitchen located just a few feet away, our home office executive need only stand up, turn around, open a drawer and have access to all of their stationery and supplies, important files and anything else they might need during a typical day at the office! Talk about kitchen storage innovation!
Thanks to the kitchen design flexibility of Thomasville cabinetry, one simple set of base cabinets can quickly and easily serve two very different purposes.
