Bring Up Accessories During the Cabinet Design Phase

The perfect time to start talking accessories is when you're discussing the cabinet design. Your kitchen designer can work with you to figure out the best placement for the accessories that you'd like to add.

They may need to choose different cabinet sizes or styles to accommodate your requests. Additionally, they may need to work with multiple manufacturers to find the ones that work best for your unique tastes. By bringing this topic up before you already made a cabinet selection, the designer can incorporate everything into the final design.

A few examples of cabinet accessories for your kitchen include trash cans, tray dividers, spice racks, pull-out trays, Lazy Susans, utensil dividers, cutting board organizers, lid racks and knife racks. When you put some of these options into your cabinets and drawers, you significantly increase the usability of the space.

How to Decide Which Cabinet Accessories Are Best For Your Kitchen

​Now that you know when to talk to your kitchen designer about cabinet accessories, which ones should you ask for?

Think about the way you use your kitchen and the types of cooking that you do the most often. You might want to have a knife block incorporated into a cabinet on your island if you're prepping lots of vegetables and meat. A baking sheet rack is perfect if you love to experiment with a variety of baked goods. Trash and recycling cans in drawers give you the convenience of the bins nearby while keeping them out of sight.
