My solution to one of my biggest pet-peeves:
I very strongly detest corner cabinets. Most of the time builders make them into a lazy-susan, or leave them as a place you have to crawl inside of to get to anything. I DO NOT like either of these solutions, so I came up with my own solution to my corner cabinet...
Instead of accessing the corner cabinet from the kitchen, I had them put the door under the raised bar. Now it holds my table cloths and place mats. EASY PEASY access!
Tomorrow I'll show you the dining area!
