We had decided to open up the kitchen - that it would only have two walls with an island that was filled with drawers - big drawers with heavy file cabinet drawer slides (The things that filing drawers use to pull in and out smoothly while supporting the heavy load of paper, files and books.) They can support over 100 pounds each and we thought they would work fine to support drawers that held large stand mixers, iron pots and pans as well as dishes. We built drawers that were tall enough to hold big bowls and other tall things that are used in the kitchen. We also made drawers that were deep enough to hold baking pans and all sorts of things for cooking. There were even spice drawers with angled racks in the drawer so the labels could be easily read.
If you have an older house with an enclosed kitchen, you may even wish to remove the door or widen the entry to make it feel less closed off from the rest of the house. Modern kitchens are social centers, after all, not just places to cook food. Need more countertop space? Before you install all new ones, think about reorganizing your existing appliances and storage, or bringing in a cart and butcher block. Those methods can do a lot for your kitchen without the need to tear things out.
Many new homeowners are overwhelmed with excitement and joy at the thought of moving into their first house. Now that is the house is officially theirs, they are free to make as many changes that they want to make. So instead of that cast iron sink and boring counter, you can put in one made of soapstone to go along with a new soapstone counter.
