The Perfect Kitchen Cutlery Drawer Design

This client has a young family and wanted their cutlery drawer to be designed so that their young children couldn’t access knives easily. Design finish was very important to this client so it was important their storage and cupboard interiors reflect the high-quality finish of their kitchen.

Shane Hannaway, Managing Director at Hannaway Hilltown commented on further design options;

“At Hannaway Hilltown we hand craft our kitchens which gives ultimate flexibility for our clients. When it comes to cutlery storage, other design options we could create include internal drawers, slim trays so cutlery items are easily sorted and found, wooden knife holders for added safety and spice holders.

What we can create is only limited by our client and designer imagination.”
