pull-out shelves that you can step on to reach the top! Garage shelving idea: the lower shelves actually glide out so you can step to reach top shelved items. Then they slide back to the wall. This would be so easy to DIY!
Dish storage in kitchen island.like this idea! I LOVE the idea of keeping plates in a drawer. This is a great example of drawer storage I would like in the island and cabinetry. Little or no standard cabinet fronts down low. all drawer storage.
I use my Kitchen Aid mixer all the time and love the sculptural quality of it sitting on the counter, but for those who don't have the counter space, consider a pop-up cabinet. Those stand mixers are heavy!
