This island is well designed, lots of easy access to plates and glasses, the level changes not only add to the look, but adds function.
Storage …there never seems to be enough space for Storage of our STUFF…no matter how much we have, we want more!
Not everyone has great organizational skills, but everyone can benefit from clever storage solutions to help them organize their stuff. With clever and creative design, you can double and triple the amount of items you keep in your busy kitchen.
There are inserts, dividers, pullouts, slide outs…depending on your style, you can have open storage for easy access , or hidden and camouflaged shelves and drawers.
Fabulous pantry...the middle shelves disappear behind the two side ones to give you an incredible amount of storage in a small footprint.
This Armoire style cabinet has been maximized for storage with a shallow set of shelves on the side...what a great idea!
Drawers which slide out fully are fantastic , though you need a step stool for the very top drawers, this is a great solution , no more digging behind items.
I love this open storage, it is so easy to access plates and cups which are used daily...this idea comes from commercial kitchen design where fast and easy access to tools and serving dishes is of utmost importance.
What a cool design...secret storage for small stuff, maybe spices, tea, nuts...whatever. I like it!
I call this 'towel garage'...it adds a funky detail to the kitchen and gives your towels a home , rather than hanging on the stove or cabinet door.
Another nice example of storage for plates and cutlery..it is easier to lift plates from below your hip height, less chance of breakage and easier to stack .
With a drawer like this...anyone can be organized, when your tools are easily accessible, you will be less frustrated while cooking.
How Clever is this...a normally wasted space has been utilized ingeniously.
This contemporary kitchen design lends itself perfectly to the skinny drawers below the counter..I really like this idea, think horizontal and not vertical and you will come up with unique design solutions.
This small kitchen has been given extra storage and counter surface with this slim cabinet, all you need is about 8" to be able to house your spices and condiments...this is great!
a column has been given dual purpose by building cabinets around it..if its gotta be there to support the structure , might as well make it work for your daily storage needs.
Check out this video …very cool storage solution

TheRedPin, Brokerage is the largest database of residential real estate in the GTA. TheRedPin is the only source to bring all new condos and MLS® listings under one umbrella to create a database nearly 1.6 times larger than the MLS® itself. Through TheRedPin, Brokerage, homebuyers can now expect direct access to up to date information on all of the GTA's resale listings with far more data than they could anywhere else.
*TheRedPin, Brokerage offers homebuyers a rebate incentive comprised of 25% of our commissions earned on homes purchased through our brokerage. You can qualify for this incentive if you are purchasing a resale property or a new condo, the latter being sold by the developer and purchased after the public opening date announced by the developer (also known as post-VIP phase). For resale and new home transactions, we use the following formula to calculate your 25% of our commission rebate: Property Purchase Price net of HST x commission offered by builder/seller (min. 1.5% to a max of 4%) x 25%. For example, $400,000 - $21,933 in HST x 4% offered by builder x 25% = $3,780. In the example of resale, a $400,000 home purchase x 2.5% x 25% = $2,500 in rebate. In some cases net of parking and/or locker prices are also included. For resale transactions, cash back must be disclosed to both parties of the transaction, recipient of the cash back must be party to a transaction. The cash-back will be paid out by TheRedPin, Brokerage to the name registered on the agreement of purchase and sale within 10 days of receiving the commission and successful completion of the transaction.
Rebates are not valid for VIP condo sales. Not valid with any other offer or promotion.
For resale transactions cash back must be disclosed to both parties of the transaction, recipient of the cash back must be party to a transaction, based on a minimum of 1.5% offered to the co-operating brokerage, and cash back will be paid from TheRedPin, Brokerage within 10 business days of successful completion of the transaction.
** VIP launch dates are according to builder's latest announcement of VIP Broker Event. A 'coming soon' status indicates that the builder has not yet announced the VIP Broker Event. Please note that all prices are subject to change. Check with a representative to confirm the latest prices.
