Look at the Prettiest Drawers to Ever Exist in a Kitchen! — Kitchen Design

We're big fans of drawers — instead of lower cabinets — in the kitchen. They often result in more storage space, and they make it easy to see all the contents. (And they're just an unexpected thing to find, as most kitchens have one drawer and then a cabinet — not a row of drawers.)
