Peninsula: Kitchen Side

There are drawers on the right, 30" wide. Left of that is a 15" wide cabinet with drawers which contains a pull-out trash. To the left of the trash cabinet, hidden in the corner to the side of the dishwasher,  is a 24" cabinet which is turned toward the bar side. I didn't want any blind corner cabinets.

Below is a picture of the inside of the ikea drawers. Ikea sells nice drawer dividers so that stuff doesn't slide around a lot when opening and closing drawers. The drawers are pretty deep. You can see that I have a pitcher in the bottom drawer.


  1. What are the drawers called at Ikea?

    1. The drawers are part of the Rationell series (in the Interior Organizers section of the website). Actually, the "drawer" is the part that slides, and if you want pull-out cabinet shelves, it is the same piece. My 'Inside the Pantry' post shows an example of them being used as pull-out shelves. You put a "drawer front" on it instead of cabinet doors to make it into a drawer. The deep drawers are really deep. I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but I have a pitcher standing up in that drawer.
