Kitchen Projects with Knape and Vogt

 

If you've been following my blog for any period of time you know that I am completely addicted to Knape and Vogt products. Although my mission to organize our home seems to be a moving target, any progress I've made thus far can be attributed to the handy organizers from Knape and Vogt which have multiplied our storage space and made "a place for everything, and everything in it's place" a little bit more attainable as a goal. Even on our most disorganized days, at least that saying is still half true around here!

I have to start with this spice tray insert because it is amazing! Yes, it is perfect for keeping your spices organized, but it is also the perfect size for separating different flavors of k-cups (no more carousels taking up precious counter space!) and the perfect holder for charging phones and other small electronic devices.

I have to share details on how to turn this spice rack into a charging station because it is one of my favorite DIY projects to date. I am loving not having cords and devices scattered everywhere in our home and contained neatly in a place where no one can see them. The project was easy and took about an hour to complete. You'll need a Knape and Vogt Spice Tray Insert, a saw (depending on the size of your drawer), a drill with a hole saw attachment, and some sort of extension cord depending on the types of devices you are charging and the distance to the closest power source.

Because of different kitchen configurations, doing a real step by step tutorial doesn't seem like it would be of immediate benefit, so my goal is to share enough tips here that you can plan a similar project in your home. A key detail for this project is that any drawer you choose must be easily accessible to an outlet. I selected a drawer in my island which was right beside the power source for my gas cooktop, so the power source was very easily accessible by drilling a couple of holes to feed the cord through- one through the back left side of the drawer itself, and the other through the cabinet wall parallel to hole I drilled in the drawer. Many kitchens don't have concealed outlets inside cabinets like this, so it might make more sense to do this project in a drawer next to your range or fridge, and drill a small hole toward the back of those cabinets where it will be hidden from sight.

Because of the movement of the drawer, I wanted to drill a large enough hole that the cord could move with it without getting stuck or tangled and potentially affect its usability. I chose to drill a hole with an inch diameter and it has worked well without a single issue. 

I love that the Knape and Vogt spice rack is so large, because I was able to organize all three of these drawers with only two of them, by cutting one to serve as the k-cup organizer and charging station. This might not work in all kitchens depending on the dimensions of your drawers, but it's worth checking the measurements before you order!

A little more straightforward as far as projects go, while I was at it I organized every drawer in my kitchen. It is amazing what giving each item in your kitchen a home can do for your sanity! I actually found the cosmetics organizers to be perfect in the kitchen as well to organize less used items like whisks, frosting tips, mixer attachments and items like that. Sizing them was easy and I was surprised to only need an exacto knife to cut them to size. I decided not to permanently attach them because having the ability to take them out and rinse them in the sink seems necessary in my home, but you could easily use a screw to attach them and even caulk them in for a really nice, built-in look.

Here are the ones I used:

I've talked about the Roll-out Wood & Wire Dividers from Knape and Vogt before, but truly can not get enough! It is unbelievable to me how much more I can fit in my cabinets with the addition of these roll-out racks, and how easy they are to install. Both of these wood and wire slide outs were installed in under 20 minutes with a total of 8 screws between them. They are perfect for muffin tins, donut tins (yes for making donuts!), cutting boards, cooling racks, lids, you name it.

A less expected item that has become a huge convenience in my kitchen was adding a roll-out laundry hamper in our pantry. Not for laundry, but for produce! Produce drawers are becoming a trend in some of the high end kitchens these days, and I've been in love with the idea of having a bin to contain things like squash and sweet potatoes that we always seem to have massive amounts of from the garden. This is far superior to any other storage method I've tried, including storing them in a loose basket at the bottom of the pantry because it gets so heavy! Even when this sliding bin is full, it still glides easily on the track so I can access the produce without trying to maneuver a bulky bin.

We also added a second Pot & Pan Caddy for organizing other kitchen essentials that needed a more permanent and convenient home- mixing bowls, toaster, tea kettle, strainer and pizza stone- yes, one caddy can hold all of that. This caddy is one of my favorite Knape and Vogt products because it is shockingly easy to install and use and multiplies your cabinet space by 3 or 4 times. If you are shopping for a cook, a home cook, or really any person with a kitchen this Christmas, this caddy will be such a hit!

Last but not least, I wanted to share one last DIY project that I did recently: a built in utensil caddy in our lazy susan. I used a utensil caddy that I already owned, and really any type of caddy will work as long as there is a little bit of a lip around the top to keep it from falling through the hole. Essentially the steps are: Pick a caddy and where you want it, trace its shape on the surface, and cut the hole for the caddy to slide down into. Looking back there are probably a hundred better ways to make a hole in a plastic surface, so don't focus on my method so much as the end result, because that's what I'm loving! Any project that results in fewer items on my countertops feels like it adds space to my kitchen and is totally worth the investment in my book!

Laundry Room Facelift in Our Fort Collins Home

 

It would be pretty easy to write an entire post about how much I hate laundry. Between the icky smells, the mysterious stains that appear on my clothes any time they end up in the same laundry basket as the kids' clothes, and the missing socks, there is easily enough content there. Not to mention the sheer volume of laundry that accumulates! If we aren't washing a load every other day in my house, we are falling behind. I dream of the day that my kids are old enough to launder their own clothes, or at least be able to get through a meal without needing an outfit change.

But you didn't come here to hear me whine! Instead, let me share with you what I've been working on lately to improve the functionality of my laundry room and streamline the laundry process. 

 

Laundry Room Facelift in Our Fort Collins Home: Real Estate an Lifestyle in Northern Colorado, a blog by Joanna Gyrath, Fort Collins Realtor

 

This might sound odd unless you can relate, but clutter and piles cause me anxiety. As I started thinking about updating the space, my main priority was getting organized and clearing surfaces so that when I go into the laundry room I can tackle the task at hand, rather than spend half my time trying to find homes for random items that collect on the counter and the tops of the appliances. But getting rid of the clutter and the unsightly things was only the first step. I also wanted to transform the laundry room into a space that felt pretty, bright, and feminine. Adding some pretty accents to the room seemed like the best way to make the laundry room feel less like a forgotten corner of our home and more like a space that we are using to its fullest. Because it's a small room that serves several functions, my goal was actually to reduce the number of items not introduce more stuff, so finding pretty accents that served a function was the main goal in this space when it came to decoration. 

Adding hardware to the cabinets and drawers felt like an obvious way to add some style will improving the functionality of the space. I love my new Whimsical Pulls in oil rubbed bronze from Bar Z Decorative Home and Cabinet Hardware, made in Silverton, Colorado! You can get a closer look at them on their website or by checking out my How to Install Cabinet Pulls Tutorial. Being able to support a Colorado small business in addition to finding such a beautiful, quality product is a win-win!

Complemented beautifully by the cabinet pulls is my elegant new faucet from Pfister. The Tuscan Bronze finish is a perfect match, and the feminine design adds exactly the feel I was hoping for in this laundry room. After all, I am the primary person who uses it, so if ever there was a room in my home that should have a fun and feminine feel to it, the laundry room is it. This is now the second Pfizer faucet in our home, and I continue to be impressed by the quality and beauty that makes these faucets feel more like sculptures that serve an important purpose than a simple faucet that is merely used to bring water to a utility sink. If you're on the market for a new faucet, I'd suggest checking out their entire catalog as they have so many lovely options, but I am also linking here to the Pfister Marielle Mini Widespread Faucet that I picked.

 

Above the utility sink, I hung two lovely Corner Wood Shelf Kits from Knape and Vogt in white to hold some of the functional items that need to exist in the laundry room but don't need to be living on the countertops where they get bumped over and make a mess. Their size was perfect to hold a big mason jar for loose change, and a basket for loose socks. I added a small wreath to the top shelf because it felt like it needed a little love, but other than that and the potted plant on the counter, every piece in this laundry room has a purpose.

Okay, I lied. Technically having the word "laundry" painted on the wall serves no purpose, but let me explain. When I first started shopping for this project, I saw hundreds of cute little laundry signs with quotes that I could hang or set on the counter for decoration. While I liked the idea, I couldn't justify bringing in more objects to this space when one of my main goals has been to declutter. After seeing an example of using stencils to decorate a laundry room on the Cutting Edge Stencils Blog, I decided that this would be the perfect way to bring in the look of a sign without actually bringing anything new into the space to collect dirt or create clutter. I selected the Zamira Letter Stencils from Cutting Edge Stencils because it seemed to coordinate well with the overall project, but it was a hard choice since they have many great designs to choose from. And painting them was fun!

Once I had my pretty accents picked out, the next main goal was to hide from view or minimize everything else. The trash can was an obvious starting point since that is always in the way and takes up valuable, limited space. I used a Door Mounted Waste Bin from Knape and Vogt to get that bin out from underfoot and concealed in a cabinet where no one would know it exists unless they need to. 

Next up on my "hide" list? I'll give you one guess: it's worse than doing laundry.

Ironing. 

Not only did I not have space to house a bulky ironing board between uses, but the tight quarters meant that the hassle of pulling it out and ironing clothes in there was such an annoyance that I would avoid doing it at all costs. When a simple spritz of water wasn't enough to de-wrinkle a shirt, I would end up dragging the bulky board out into the living room where the kids could knock it over onto themselves creating a whole different kind of stress. Essentially I had a very flawed, thoughtless system that wasn't working and needed major improvements. Enter the Nutone Ironing Center which pretty much saved my sanity. There are a few different options of cabinet style, but I was incredibly pleased with how well the white cabinet door matched my existing cabinets. This unit looks like it was made for this space. Honestly, my laundry room has a little less than the recommended clearance for the ironing board to pull out, but it swivels in all directions so it works perfectly even in a small space like mine. I can't promise that I will love ironing now, but having the board, the iron and everything I need ready to go at a moments notice means that when I can't avoid it, at least it can be streamlined and easy. I am loving not having to store that big ironing board!

Last and definitely not least, I need to share the LUXE Laundry Sorter System which was invented by an entrepreneur in Lakewood and is made by hand in Colorado. Essentially the system involves wall mounted cleats that allow you to hang your laundry baskets on the wall when needed, or stack them to one side when not. I thought that this was a great alternative to shelving in this area for one great reason: when not in use, they no longer have to take up space. I decided to hang them horizontally over my washer and dryer because that's where I would tend to place the laundry baskets for use or storage anyway, but I needed a better option since the baskets were often tumbling off during spin cycles. I hung four cleats so that I could have a basket for each family member when sorting clean clothes, although I use them most often with just two baskets labeled "clean" and "dirty." 

These cleats are very secure, which I know because I hung them myself with the provided anchors according to the instructions. Since I was hanging them horizontally my process was a little bit different, but only involved a level to make sure they were straight, a dry erase marker to indicate the line where I wanted them to line up, and a drill. It was really easy, and took me about half an hour from start to finish.  The cleats arrived in a raw wood which is really lovely on its own and doesn't even need to be painted. I did paint them to help them blend in with the wall, but when it came down to it, I skipped the last coat because I liked having a little bit of that natural wood grain showing through.

Here's a quick little video from the inventor that shows how to use the system in a vertical configuration which probably makes more sense in many laundry rooms. This system is so nifty!

 

 

And finally, my before and after side by side:

How to Install Cabinet Pulls

 

Tutorial: How to Install Cabinet Pulls | Real Estate and Lifestyle in Northern Colorado, a blog by Joanna Gyrath, Fort Collins Realtor & Home Stager

 

I'm such a detail oriented person, that to me cabinets just look unfinished until they have hardware. Of course, the addition of a knob or pull to a cabinet or drawer does so much more than add visual interest-- it also increases the functionality of a space by making the items stored inside more accessible. Probably my favorite part though, is that adding pulls keeps your cabinets and drawers looking cleaner- especially in spaces like your laundry room where a lot of yuck happens!

 

My laundry room has been one of the most neglected rooms in my house, so I'm working on a few updates that I'll share on the blog soon, but wanted to get this tutorial out since it's been in my head for a while now! I developed a bit of a hack when it comes to installing cabinet pulls when I did them in our kitchen a couple of years ago and have been kicking myself for not documenting and sharing it then! 

 

But before I dive in too deep, I'll answer the question that I know everyone is thinking in their heads: where did I find such beautiful pulls?! These one of a kind, handmade pulls are made in Silverton by Bar Z Decorative Hardware which means you can beautify your home AND support a Colorado small business at the same time when you order these pulls! I selected an oil-rubbed bronze design from their whimsical collection because I was just craving something fun and pretty to dress up an otherwise boring space, but the variety of styles and finishes are endless- with designs from contemporary, to rustic, to traditional, and everything in between- so I highly recommend checking out their full catalog online. I have to tell you though, they are even more beautiful in person than in pictures and the kind of pieces that you have to be able to touch to fully appreciate the detail and quality- these things are heavy! 

 

Tutorial: How to Install Cabinet Pulls | Real Estate and Lifestyle in Northern Colorado, a blog by Joanna Gyrath, Fort Collins Realtor & Home Stager

 

You will need:

  • Wrapping paper with a grid pattern on back (for large drawers/cabinets) or graph paper (for smaller drawers) 
  • Your kid's crayons
  • Scissors
  • Dry erase marker
  • Painter's tape
  • Drawer pull/knob with screws
  • Drill 

 

Step One:

Line up the grid with the edge of the cabinet and tape it in place so it doesn't move. Use the crayon to trace the outline of the cabinet onto your paper. Do this once for each different style and size of drawer/cabinet you will be attaching pulls to.

 

Tutorial: How to Install Cabinet Pulls | Real Estate and Lifestyle in Northern Colorado, a blog by Joanna Gyrath, Fort Collins Realtor & Home Stager

 

Step 2:

Once you have your outline of the drawers, remove the tape and cut it out. Determine where you want your knob to go, and punch holes in the paper to coordinate with the screw holes. I've heard all kinds of rules about where knobs and pulls should be located, and I don't agree with any of them. I think this is personal preference, and while I have seen some that were clearly "wrong," I strongly support that you do what you like in your own home! If you're getting ready to sell your home, well, that's a different story so give me a ring and we can discuss! 

 

Tutorial: How to Install Cabinet Pulls | Real Estate and Lifestyle in Northern Colorado, a blog by Joanna Gyrath, Fort Collins Realtor & Home Stager

 

Step 3:

Realign your stencil with the drawer/cabinet, and use your dry erase marker to mark your drill sites. Repeat this for each drawer/cabinet. (hint: before going on to the next step, I suggest lining up your pull or knob so you can envision how it will look. This is why I recommend a dry erase marker, because it's not yet too late to change your mind on the positioning!).

 

Tutorial: How to Install Cabinet Pulls | Real Estate and Lifestyle in Northern Colorado, a blog by Joanna Gyrath, Fort Collins Realtor & Home Stager

 

Step 4: 

Drill your pilot holes. I decided to attach one pull before moving on and drilling the rest of them just to be sure I didn't somehow make a mistake, but if you feel very confident that your template is perfect, you can just go down the line and drill them out.

Step 5: Attach your pulls!
