When you walk into a room for the first time, you may not consciously notice details like drawer knobs. If someone asked you what they were like, you may not be able to answer. Yet, they create an ambience that is unique to the kitchen. You may not know what you liked or did not like, but there will be either a feeling of harmony or a nagging sense of wrongness. The kitchen cabinet knobs make that big of a difference.
The use of shelves in base cabinets is poor ergonomics: It makes it very difficult to find items as it is impossible to gain an overview of the entire cabinet contents. It is quite common for a kitchen user to have to bend and stretch when searching for something. Equally they frequently have to remove the contents at the front in order to get to the items at the back.
The next type is the 7 speed mixer, which may have more speeds added to take on heavier load of cooking and baking. But that is not all, because even with the maximum speed of this baby, it still is perfect for meringue and egg whips any time. And lastly, the 9 speed mixer which has an additional whisk control system that helps with aerating the mix, especially when delicate desserts are involved.
The final choice if you are replacing odd sized drawer knobs is to buy ones with a back plate. A back plate can cover the existing holes. No one will know they are there. It will eliminate the problem inherent in the other option where you have to match the finish of the holes to the drawer front. Many drawer pulls come with back plates. You can search the home improvement stores and hardware stores looking for that ideal set of cabinet handles. It takes a lot of leg work, but you get a first hand look at any hardware you are considering. If it is a local store, you are likely to know how good their return policies are, as well.
Any kitchen organizing solution begins with uncluttering. Take everything out of the drawer. Sort items into one of 3 piles based on how regularly you use the item. Sorting by your/family usage is easier and helps weed out under utilized or infrequently used kitchen items. For each item place it in one of three piles; regularly used pile; less often used pile or, almost/never used pile. This way you are getting rid of kitchen declutter. The almost never used pile of items is the pile for charity or to throw out. The exception are those items, like a turkey baster for instance, used for annual events like holidays. Try and keep these items to a minimum or better yet store them away with the other same seasonal items. For instance, the nut cracker you pull out every December, keep it with your other items you store for this time of year. For the less often used pile look to dispose of duplicates, worn out, novelty items no longer used. Keep the regularly used items. A general rule of thumb is 25% of the stuff we currently have, we can live without. See if you are living by this rule.
