How to Elevate Your Kitchen: Modern Design to Classic Kitchen Feature

Everyone is familiar with the classic Lazy Susan cabinet feature in many kitchens today! This one little cabinet has been adding storage enhancement and functionality to kitchens for generations –  these designs truly leave something to be desired!

Depending on the year of the home, the style of this cabinet will vary from a diagonal corner cabinet to an accordion door or even a mini pantry style door. All of which, though functional, are sadly an outdated look. 

Even though these cabinets have failed to keep up with innovation of modern kitchen designs with their beautiful clean lines that we all know and love, this kitchen feature adds value to any home. Any time you can create more storage and accessibility in a kitchen results in a win win for homeowners. In an article from Better Homes and Gardens, it was noted that this simple feature brings unexpected value to a home. 

So how do you keep this value adding classic kitchen feature without compromising the beauty of a modern kitchen aesthetic? Well, look no further! Our very own Tim Murphy of Murphy’s Custom Homes had been asking this same question. While he was out shopping for modern custom cabinetry discovered the solution in a kidney shaped drawer cabinet from Brooks Brothers Cabinetry Inc.
