If you’ve had the opportunity to read our last two blogs, you know that the trending popularity of green cabinets, as well as having design flexibility within your new kitchen are topics not to be overlooked when you’re planning for your new space.
In light of that, the following post intends to bring to your attention another critical element that not only will make your new Thomasville Kitchen from The Home Depot a lot nicer to look at and easier to use, but also make it a place where storage and organization never take a back seat, providing you with that one final piece of the ultimate kitchen design puzzle.
Different Categories of Kitchen Storage Innovation
Whether or not you’re familiar with Thomasville Cabinetry, and the wide array of available storage and organization solutions we offer, the task of determining exactly what you need to include in your new kitchen design can be somewhat of a daunting one.
In order to help you navigate the kitchen storage innovation selection, we’ve broken down some of our most popular and newest cabinet interior organization solutions into some easy-to-follow categories. Choosing one or two from each of these, with the help and guidance of your Home Depot Kitchen Designer will serve you very well for many years to come, enjoying the benefits of a well-organized, ultra-functional kitchen.
It doesn’t really matter if you’re the type of consumer who prefers to visit a large-format bulk wholesale food retailer bi-monthly, or you hop into the car and frequent your local supermarket or specialty food market a few times per week as you plan your meals, food storage is one category that must be at the top of your kitchen storage innovation list.
The image shown above features two ways of tackling this task, not only providing you with more than ample space to tuck everything safely and securely away, but does so with the elegance and convenience of our new, sleek-looking grey metal accessories.
On the left you will see our tall dispensa pull-out cabinet, featuring four adjustable metal shelves, and smooth-glide, no-slam soft close hardware built in. On the right is an equally elegant and handy way of organizing those hard-to-reach corner wall cabinets. Offering a 3-level adjustable set of spinner shelves, reaching into the back of your corner wall becomes a thing of the past.
Pot, Pan and Small Appliance Storage
Calling all home chefs! Our next category will make your lives easier, from food prep through to cooking and serving. Storing your pots, pans and small appliances can be tough, especially when your kitchen isn’t designed to do so.
Two of the many options you have for this dilemma are featured in the photo above. On the left is our blind base corner cabinet with lemans slide-out. With two levels of storage that can move independently of each other, and pretty much the smoothest movement you’ll find in kitchen storage, you’ll probably find yourself wanting to cook more often, just for the opportunity to use this little baby!
Pictured to the right of the lemans is our brand new appliance garage with a convenient, easy-to-open lift-up door. With the flexibility of Thomasville’s available cabinet modifications, this cabinet can be customized in many ways to fit the design esthetic of your kitchen’s layout, making access to the toaster, coffee maker or food processor easy-breezy.
Unique Cabinet Interior Design and Storage Solutions
There are a couple of cabinets that are, in most cases anyway, included in practically every new kitchen design that’s done today. Those cabinets are a base corner cabinet and a sink cabinet. Thanks to the innovators here at Thomasville, these two vital kitchen components also have interior accessories and storage enhancements that make them much more than a way to turn a corner or hold up a sink.
The image shown above has a few options for putting those finishing touches on these cabinets. Pictured left is our newest version of a classic called the lazy susan. As you can see, we’ve taken it to the next level once again with our smooth-as-silk on-trend dark grey metal shelves, while also eliminating those previously annoying centre posts, utilizing bottom-mounted spinners, opening up the entire space to store (and have quick, easy access to) just about anything you can imagine.
As for the sink cabinet, on the right above we have a couple of enhancements that will make this cabinet shine. First, there’s the new interior sink base valance, designed to cover the front of your sink bowl(s), allowing you to have full height doors on your sink cabinet for easier access, and not have to worry about seeing what’s “under the hood” every time you open them up. At the bottom of the sink base is pictured one of our best sellers, especially for those who are prone to being a little bit on the messy side. It’s our waterproof cabmat, which can hold a great deal of water, cleaning liquid or whatever else happens to get spilled under there, leaving your cabinet bottom untouched and undamaged.
Multi-Purpose Storage Solutions
In the world of kitchen storage cabinets, there are always those few specialty units that perform not one, but multiple tasks, doing each of them with precision and ease. The new Thomasville knife block utility storage pull-out cabinet is a perfect example of this type of innovation.
As you can see by the side and top views above, this cabinet has a lot going on behind it’s opaque painted MDF door! Let’s begin with the obvious. It has not one, but two large multi-use knife blocks to keep those sharp blades safely tucked away. Immediately beside the knife blocks are included 3 tough Lexan cutting mats with a convenient slide-in slot so they won;t go missing the next time you need them. The top (adjustable) shelf is then completed with three medium and one large removable (for washing) deep stainless steel canisters for organizing any kind and size of kitchen utensil such as spatulas, ladles, whisks and more.
If all that weren’t enough, we’ve also included a second, lower shelf where mixing bowls, frequently used pots or anything else your little heart desires can be easily stored and organized. Once again, with available modifications to width, this cabinet can shine in any kitchen design or layout.
Bringing Other Rooms Into The Kitchen
Our previous blog, which featured design flexibility with Thomasville Cabinets, we let you in on a little secret. That was the fact that the gorgeous Nouveau Fallon kitchen we featured in that post had a “hidden element” with the addition of some of our new office cabinets, turning its adjacent dining room from an entertaining centrepiece, into a functional home office whenever it was required.
Pictured above are the cabinets used in that design in order to achieve this plan, and we’d now like to formally introduce them to you. On the left is the star of the home office show, our brand new office accessory and file drawer cabinet. With a simple pull, you can easily access all of your supplies on the upper sliding shelf, while below, all of your important files have a permanent and secure home with the integrated hanging file system, adaptable for either letter and legal sized files.
Finally, on the right is our home office storage cabinet, which features a full-height door for maximum access, and also a full depth adjustable shelf for organizing your stationery, magazines, important documents and much more.
