Small Kitchen Storage Solution

My husband and I moved into our new home and needed to make some big changes to optimize our kitchen. We started out with the empty space below the window which would fit a bench to store our shoes and take off boots in the winter. The husband didn't like the idea of having the bench right next to the stove so he custom designed a vertical drawer to separate the two.

We then decided to drop the two wall shelves in the corner and add another on top of it for the floor to ceiling look. That of course would make the other cabinets look short so we stacked some narrow cabinets on top of the existing cabinets. Finally I custom built a thin series of cubbies and dividers to fit a full set of plates.

I love the way the kitchen feels built out now and that we doubled our storage in the same amount of space... most of all though the walnut bench and custom vertical drawer.
