  • You don't have to sacrifice style for function. I'll show you how to get both with a smart

  • and beautiful kitchen design.

  • This kitchen went from dated and dysfunctional, to lovely

  • and livable, and all it took was some thoughtful design.

  • One of the main goals was to open up the space. You can see how boxy and closed in it was

  • with this peninsula cutting the room right in half. Pulling it out created a more open,

  • free-flowing footprint, and unified the space. And removing the soffets

  • instantly added height and light to the room.

  • These two simple structural changes made a big difference not only in

  • how the kitchen looks but how it functions, which was the second goal, better functionality

  • -- and in a kitchen....that means storage.

  • To maximize storage, the kitchen incorporates a mix of cabinetry styles; from traditional

  • closed cabinets, to open shelving, even

  • specialty pieces like this corner cabinet to corral odds and ends.

  • This is one of my favorite design elements of the whole kitchen,

  • it's this top hinged wall cabinet, that lifts right out of the way and behind it

  • creates an appliance garage where you can store large appliances

  • or other things you dont want sitting out on the counter top.

  • Pull everything out, do your work and

  • then tuck it back away and its all out of sight.

  • You can also come up with your own unexpected configurations of cabinets.

  • This wall was totally unused. Now, we've added three layers of

  • shallow upper cabinets that create almost a furniture-like piece and provide so much

  • great storage, as well as gorgeous display space. So what was wasted space, is now fully functional.

  • Making the most of those 'wasted spaces' is the route to really boosting your storage.

  • So utilize corners, make drawers do double duty, add on to insides of doors, it's

  • all about finding simple solutions to your everyday problems, with a little help of course

  • from Lowe's Creative Ideas.
