Built-in bookcase for cookbooks! I just want built in bookcases in every room for books! I'll carry a book from one room to another and have a dedicated shelf for my current read. Although, having dedicated space for cookbooks is smart, too.
Key storage- door at the end of a kitchen cabinet for small storage. This gave me the idea that the inside of a cabinet door should be painted with chaulkboard paint so you can keep notes or grocery list there.
Add-Ons: Open Shelves When you want cookbooks close at hand, provide shelves at least 10 inches deep and 12 inches high, or size them to your biggest books. An attached bookcase can add 20 percent to the island's cost.
