Roll-out Trays

In a kitchen that doesn’t have many drawers, roll-out trays are the next best option. Use these for storing countertop appliances, mixing bowls, or food. Roll-outs are also great for aging-in-place.


Tray Dividers

It’s best to put this cabinet somewhere near your range for convenience. Place it above your refrigerator to make this storage more effective, or in a base cabinet next to the cooktop.

Valances

Amplify the decorative aspects of your kitchen with a valance. Suspend one as a focal point between wall cabinets over a sink, or dress up the toe kick of a custom hutch for a furniture look.


Corbels

This accent is very ornate and can help create anything from a farmhouse look to traditional style. Use it as countertop supports for a breakfast bar, or under wall cabinets to dress up the kitchen.
