Don’t overlook other areas of your kitchen when planning a renovation; the room can be utilized for much more than just cooking. Martha Stewart Living PureStyle cabinetry can also be used to create customized spaces, like an eating nook for breakfast and a seating area for entertaining. The style and color of the niche will blend seamlessly with the rest of the space.

Keep It Together
Keep the workflow of your kitchen in mind. Create kitchen "stations" with appliances and gadgets that have similar functions together, like coffee machines, tea kettles, and mugs, or mixing bowls, rolling pins, and a stand mixer.

Add Beauty and Function
Keep in mind your goals for the new kitchen, including how you want to use the space and what your family’s routine is. If you have pets, consider creating a dedicated space for their food and supplies. The Pet Feeding Center comes with a pull-out cabinet at the top to hold food, leashes, and toys. A toe-kick drawer at the bottom of the unit is the perfect place to keep the food bowl. It can be closed when your pet isn’t eating, keeping your floor cleaner and cutter-free.

Conquer Small Spaces
Get smart with smaller kitchens. If the heart of your home is pressed for space, add extra storage elements like a Super Cabinet, lazy Susan, or additional pull-out drawers. You'll enjoy the extra style and storage for years to come.

When thinking about colors, remember to think about your kitchen as a whole, including cabinets, countertops, drawers, and backsplashes. For variation, think different shades of the same color as opposed to using every shade of the rainbow.

Be a Show-Off
Do you have an heirloom china set? Or a servingware set that's too pretty to hide behind cabinet doors? Opt for glass-front cabinetry doors to show off your most prized possessions.

Incorporate Freestanding Pieces
Take full advantage of your kitchen’s space by including freestanding pieces. A hutch can be designed to fit against an available wall not being utilized for cabinets. It also allows for additional customization because it can be easily moved to other rooms. Choose to build it with the same cabinetry as the rest of the kitchen, or use it as an accent piece in a different color or style.
