The space under the cabinets has a purpose
Did you know that the space under the cabinets – called a toe kick – actually has a specific purpose? This space has been created to allow you to sit comfortably while cooking. So, how well do you know your house?
“It’s just enough when combined with your countertop overhang to keep you from having to lean your upper body forward while working. At the same time, it also raises the doors of the cabinets off the ground so they can swing over your toes,” said Jason Pickens, designer and host of HGTV.com’s The Work Around.
