The kitchen is the heart and soul of most every home. We say that often because it’s true, especially these days. Food and beverages are naturally a kitchen’s main focus, so it’s not surprising that wine, coffee and beverage centers have become increasingly popular in today’s designs. Kitchen cabinet storage ideas now include islands with built-in wine storage cubes, wine rack cabinets, and coffee bars. As a result, cabinet organizers are redefining efficient use of space in creative ways.
Coffee, tea, juice or wine? It’s your choice. A butler’s pantry, hutch, buffet, or beverage bar is the perfect solution for busy families. They give you extra room to prepare appetizers and drinks and make it easy for family and friends to help themselves. A convenient place to store glasses and linens, these cabinets help fully utilize the corners and niches near your kitchen.
Beverage centers offer a place for access to drinks that can be separated from a kitchen’s main workflow. These can be as simple as criss-cross cabinets to store and display wine bottles, a coffee station, or an under-cabinet refrigerator, for example.

The back of an island can accommodate many different types of of cabinets. It will depend on the height of the island - countertop versus 'bar' height. Typically full-height base cabinets are used, but wall cabinets can also be used. Don't forget if you have seating or a countertop overhang that may make it difficult to access stored items.
