Living the Easy Life
Of course, we all know the “Easy Life” is with a book in our hand, toes in the sand.
Then reality hits us right smack in the face! We are micro managers of our household! What could make life easier is organization. Seems simple enough right? A kitchen well designed from the beginning will make for an easier life!
So, let me explain how it is you can have the“Easy-Life” with custom cabinets.
If you are considering building new or remodeling a home in the near future, you should consider custom cabinetry.
There are many more reasons to consider custom cabinetry than you might realize.
Cabinet organization can reduce clutter, make things easier to store and find–which makes cooking more enjoyable!
Organization built into your design might just begin to create the “Easy -Life” for you!
Benefits of working with a custom cabinet shop:
- Built to last
- Local sourcing
- Elements you NEED, and none that you don’t
- Built to fit
- Not mass produced
- Space planning and functional design
At Walker Woodworking we have a talented designer who can guide you through all the options of custom cabinets with your best interest in mind. Custom design elements will increase the value of your home. “Cookie-cutter” or boxed cabinet manufacturing cannot offer the elements of a custom shop.
Your kitchen design is often based on the purpose of your kitchen. That may seem crazy to say, but not all kitchen owners actually cook; therefore, perhaps pan dividers and spice racks are not needed. Your lifestyle is important to the design of your kitchen. Does the whole family cook? Do you need more counter space for preparations? Do you eat in the kitchen? Do you have large serving pieces? All of these questions and more will help the design process be most efficient for you and your family.
Here are a few suggested kitchen design ideas that will help you begin the “Easy Life”.
Not a new concept to the kitchen, but new ideas in the design area. Tray dividers can store various items such as: Cutting boards, cookie sheets, & serving trays. Placement for this type of storage will give your kitchen more function without compromising space.
Base wall and pullouts:
Pullouts are perfect to fill in a space and use for storage of spices, oils, cooking utensils & other small items. When closed, the pullouts will blend with the kitchen design and sometimes go unnoticed. Maximize your storage and get the most out of your space.
Pantry & roll-out drawers:
Adjustable roll-outs are perfect for canned goods and dry food storage. This helps eliminate the problem of never seeing what’s in the back. Everything is easily accessible and at your fingertips!
The mixer now has a place to be stored.
No heavy lifting just to make a cake! Coffee makers, blenders, toasters and small appliances can be stored with convenience; thus making your life easier and your back stronger! Frees the counter top of clutter and begins to make life easier!
Recycling is important. But really who likes having the three large ugly plastic storage bins at your garage door entrance? Now you can get the family involved in recycling. Recycling can be stylish and functional. Custom cabinets will allow you to have more than one area of trash bins in your home.

Docking drawer & drawer dividers:
Free up your counter space–custom drawers, docking drawers and cutlery drawers will certainly help with the clutter of small items. Several of our home owners need storage for various things including: hair dryers, curling irons, DVD’s, jewelry, guns, serving utensils, tools and so much more!
A designer will provide answers to your questions that will allow us to design cabinetry that is best suited for your lifestyle.Docking drawers are becoming more and more popular in today’s households. A docking drawer has the electrical components inside the drawer which can charge your electronic devices without clutter on the countertop.
Refrigerator drawer and warming drawers:
Like the look of a mini bar, wet bar or need extra refrigerated space for the kids to have easy access to after school drinks and snacks? A refrigerator drawer is functional and stylish. Custom cabinet appliance panels can be placed on the outside to have the drawer look as if it was part of the cabinetry. Warming drawers also can be incorporated into your kitchen design to blend with the cabinetry.
