One of the first questions from a homeowner is “What is the most asked for kitchen feature that everyone asks for?” Here is a list of the top 10 kitchen must-have features.

Cutlery Organizer

Recycle your old plastic organizer that slides around and get a Wood Cutlery Tray Insert by Rev-a-Shelf. It can be cut to fit your drawer, maximizing your space.

Microwave Drawer

Building microwaves into cabinets is a must-have, but often there is limited wall space to have an additional appliance. The SHARP microwave drawer is the best solution and easy for people of all ages to use. 

Deep Drawers

Ideal for pots, pans, storage containers, dishes…just about anything.  This is the most asked for item of them all.

Double Trash Bin

When a Rev-a-Shelf pull-out trash bin is placed near the prep zone it becomes the most appreciated feature in a kitchen.  Just simply pull half open and use a scrapper to push to edge to drop right in!  Why double? The perfect way to encourage the whole family to recycle.

Tray Dividers

Don’t stack up those trays, store them on their sides where they are easy to pull out.  Roasting pans, cutting boards, muffin tins, and pizza pans can also be stored here.  The most popular place to design this feature is over an oven cabinet; it uses the deep cavity efficiently, yet the trays are an easy reach when stored on their sides.  Wood dividers are the most popular choice as they give secure fit a variety of sized items.  There is also a more economical and readily available style that can easily be added to existing cabinets.

Chandelier Lighting

Add a chandelier over an island or peninsula. Here is your chance to add personal flair to the entire room. If the light does not offer down-lighting for the workspace, do not forget to add recessed cans.

Appliance panels

While stainless steel appliances may be equally as popular, more often people are looking to dress up their kitchen.  By adding matching fronts to your dishwasher and refrigerator it reduces the distraction and makes your space feel larger. A SubZero refrigerator with a Wolf oven is shown.

Spice Storage

This Rev-a-Shelf base pull-out is available for both 9 and 12-inch full height door base cabinets. It is one of the most effective ways to store spices and cooking oils.  

Large Island

The bigger the island, the better—and one level please.  Homeowners are appreciating the fact that two-level islands really hide nothing at all since guests are often in the kitchen with them. One-level islands give you larger work surfaces. Details like turned legs, applied furniture baseboards, and open shelves further enhance and personalize the style.

Wood Counter Tops

No need for small cutting boards with an entire wood island surface. This 2″ thick white oak countertop has a mineral oil finish. The only time you will need a separate cutting board is for poultry or fish. Did you know wood has been tested to be safer than plastics?
