I’ve been thinking lately of how much kitchen design has changed.
At one time, we used to be glad simply to have drawers…any drawers. Now drawers must be full-extension with soft-close hardware. Dovetailed boxes are preferred (although let you in for a little secret: dovetails are a throwback when nails were scarce and the only glue was horsehair. That is why the joints were dovetailed. It’s not a superior to newer methods and doesn’t affect openings).
Now the new luxury details are items like this–metal and glass sided drawer boxes with interior lighting and touch openings.
I’m still waiting for the kitchen that cooks its own food, though. How about you?
Until next time,
