Refrigerator Wall Packed with Ideas

How many design ideas can you spot in this refrigerator wall? It’s full of storage and clever cabinet arrangements.Waypoint's style 760F in Maple Auburn Glaze

To the right of the refrigerator, wall cabinets are stacked to the counter creating the look of a hutch. Grid Glass doors are symmetrically placed left and right. Open shelves are in the center. They are a great place for cookbooks, dinnerware or collectibles.

Below a trio of Storage Cubes are centered and are used here for storage of table wine. The open cubbies add texture to the space.  The ends of the whole unit are finished off with matching wood panels and because this area is more of a storage area than a work station, the toe kick is finished off with a furniture toe…decorative molding that covers the usual toe recess.Waypoint's style 760F in Maple Auburn Glaze

The area to the left of the refrigerator has been set aside as a baking center with a Wall Top Hinge cabinet that holds baking needs. I like the location of this bake center because the user is near the refrigerator so getting the eggs out to warm to room temperature or grabbing the butter for the cookies is a cinch.
