HOW TO MAKE YOUR FAMILY'S KITCHEN A WELL-OILED MACHINE

Posted by KraftMaid on

KraftMaid Cabinetry - A Well-Oiled Kitchen

The kitchen is the hub of the house, which makes it a perfect place for the whole family to connect and spend quality time. But the more people who use it, the easier it is to fall out of sync. Your day can get derailed by as little as a missing measuring spoon, or another argument over who moved Suzie's homework.

The kitchen is the hub of the house, which makes it a perfect place for the whole family to connect and spend quality time. But the more people who use it, the easier it is to fall out of sync. Your day can get derailed by as little as a missing measuring spoon, or another argument over who moved Suzie's homework.

Consider these kitchen features to help make your household run a little more smoothly.

KraftMaid Cabinetry - Kids' Zone Cabinets

1. KIDS' DROP ZONE

Keep your cooking and eating surfaces clear by giving kids a dedicated place to drop their backpacks and stash school supplies. This drop zone features  KraftMaid® EverCore™ cabinets in Dove White.

KraftMaid Floating Shelves

2. FLOATING SHELVES

Free up more counter space with a dedicated shelf for each type of small item you want to keep out in the open, like potted herbs, or framed school pictures. Choose a style that complements your cabinets, like this  KraftMaid Cove floating shelf.

KraftMaid - Deep Drawer Combination

3. DEEP DRAWER COMBINATION

Minimize rifling through drawers with a  KraftMaid Deep Drawer Combination, which lets you keep little items close to — but neatly separate from — the big items they go with. The big, deep drawer is great for items like cookware, and the shallow drawer is perfect for things like lids, towels and cutting boards.

Non-Slip Drawer Liners

4. NON-SLIP LINERS

Stop loose gadgets and utensils from sliding to the way back of the drawer, tricking you into thinking they're lost.  KraftMaid Non-Slip Liners are made-to-fit, washable and nearly invisible.

Deep Drawer Organizer

5. DEEP DRAWER ORGANIZERS WITH OXO CANISTERS

Keep dry foods handy, fresh and organized — and avoid attracting ants — with a  KraftMaid Deep Drawer Organizer with OXO Canister Storage. The OXO canisters are BPA-free and airtight, and they fit perfectly between dividers to keep everything in its place.

Rubbermaid Drawer Organizer

6. RUBBERMAID® CONTAINER DRAWER

No more digging around and asking, "Where's the lid?" Contain the containers with a  KraftMaid Rubbermaid Container Drawer. The Rubbermaid set includes four ½-cup containers, five 1 ¼-cup containers, four 2-cup containers, one 3-cup container, two 5-cup containers and one 7-cup container, all with lids. And it all fits neatly in perfectly sized compartments.

Spice Shelf

7. SPICE SHELF

Use a  KraftMaid Spice Shelf to keep small items within reach and off the counter. The lipped edge also makes it a convenient place to set your phone or tablet at eye level while you cook, whether you're multi-tasking or checking online recipes.
