I want a small writing desk in my kitchen area for sure. And the fact you can hide the shelves with retractable doors is good, to keep things nice and neat looking. Although still not enough space for my 50+ cookbooks--although I am culling them down, slowly. Very slowly.
By rotating a cabinet so that the door opens onto the corner breakfast bar instead of into the kitchen prep zone, this homeowner was able to carve out a kitchen workstation with hidden electrical outlets and a cabinet door lined with cork board. Photo: Nathan Kirkman | thisoldhouse.com
