At the September 18th kbtribechat we will be sharing our ideas for making a design statement with:

  • Cabinetry
  • Countertops and Backsplashes
  • Major Appliances
  • Plumbing Fixtures
  • Lighting
  • Flooring
  • Furniture
  • Artwork
  • Color

A combination of select elements can add up to a kitchen design that is beautiful beyond ordinary…..but it’s easy to go overboard!

Each space is unique, which emphasizes how important it is to hire a design professional and to make all decisions well in advance of construction.

Cabinet Interior Accessories that Wow!

kbtribechat questions

for February 1, 2012

Blind corners are particularly difficult to get into with their deep shelf going into the corner space. Half-moon susans and corner optimizer basket units are available to give better access to this space.  Corner cabinets with lazy susans are another solution if turning the corner is an option.

1.) What are your favorite interior hardware solutions for corners?
