Built-in bookcase for cookbooks! I just want built in bookcases in every room for books! I'll carry a book from one room to another and have a dedicated shelf for my current read. Although, having dedicated space for cookbooks is smart, too.
I love the idea of a Small Appliance Station behind doors in a kitchen! I would add outlets in cupboard and have countertop space available to use appliance right there. For example, toaster and coffee maker.
