Do you remember getting Highlights Magazine as a child? There was always one mind teaser game in there that featured a complex line drawing. Your goal was to find as many hidden objects as possible in the picture. Well, the grownup version has arrived courtesy of the ultimate cabinet organization gurus at Crown Point. You won’t believe the ways they’ve come up with to hide household objects in handcrafted wooden cabinets. Here are a few of the coolest pullout and popup options featured on their website:
- Stepped spice drawer
- Microwave shelf
- Cutting board
- Recycle bins
- Ironing board
- Towel bar
- Laundry hamper
- Hidden mirror
- TV lift (you knew that one was coming!)
You have to actually see some of this stuff to believe it. Here’s the link where you can browse all the possibilities. Don’t miss the “Magic Corner” that features a pullout tray with a second pullout tray attached. It allows you to fit more pots and pans into a corner cabinet than you would think possible.
A large percentage of Crown Point’s hidden cabinet solutions are designed for the kitchen. That’s not surprising. This is the area where you have the most cabinets – and yet still the area where you have the most problems finding room to put everything. It’s only when you take control of this space and store your kitchen equipment effectively that you can begin to think about adding more devices (like a TV). That actually sounds like a good way to reward yourself for getting more organized. Plan a kitchen remodel that includes custom cabinetry with a place for everything and everything in its place. Then, make sure that your plans include a perfect place for a TV lift. It can be a drop down lift in an upper cabinet, a subcompact popup lift in a corner counter, or a big screen that is installed inside your kitchen island!
