A picture is worth 1,000 words. It is also priceless.
My kitchen is postage stamp sized and requires a lot of thought. A few years ago I came up with my version of a Hoosier cabinet that a friend put together for me. It is a base cabinet, with 1 regular over the counter cabinet and 1 over the fridge cabinet with a counter.
The cabinet holds my dishes, my breadmaker, mixers and assorted additional things that there is no room for elsewhere in the kitchen. The counter overhang on the left provides only usable work/storage space.
