Even if you don’t have space inside of a wall, you can add a wall storage unit to your existing wall. Two doors, made of %” plywood with 1×6 or 1×8 ”frame” pieces, can be hinged to a wall. Shelves, perforated hardboard and other kitchen convenience racks can be combined to provide ample additional storage. If you cannot use the entire wall, use only part. On the following pages you will find many more ideas for getting the most out of existing storage space; you’ll find extras for the wall.
With the contemporary trend toward making the kitchen part of the family living area, modifications are often necessary in the traditional layout of the kitchen. The basic shapes – one-wall, L-shaped, U- shaped, two-wall – still remain. However, the walls in many contemporary kitchens aren’t there. The rear of the kitchen cabinets forms the front of storage units in the adjoining room. Without the floor-to-ceiling walls in the kitchen, where can the cabinets be hung? The basic problem in most kitchens is inadequate cabinet space. What can be done? If floor space is available, additional base cabinets can be included to compensate for the loss of wall cabinets. On the other hand, these cabinets can be hung from the ceiling and a space between the bottom of the cabinets and the top of the base cabinets can be left open, and used as a work area. Another technique is to open only part of the wall for the ”open look.”

When modernizing your kitchen or planning one in a new home, it is best to recognize that certain clearances must be left unless you want some member of your family or a dinner guest to pop up and down every time someone has to pass by. You should allow for at least 42” from the front end of the chair to the wall behind. This makes it easy to get in and out of the chair and to pass behind the chair while someone is sitting in it. However, if you have a cabinet behind the chair, you should add the door width to this basic 42” figure so that the cabinet can be opened and closed easily. This extra room is not needed if you install sliding door cabinets. Where there is no chair, at least 24” should be planned for between the end of the table and a wall. This permits the server to pass through conveniently.
