RE: Where do you store your everyday plates, bowls & cups? (Follow-Up #17)

In my old kitchen I stored the everyday dishes in the cabinet above the DW.
In my new kitchen (same house) I have two 36" wide drawers in the island across from the DW. The top drawer also has a second drawer for all my silverware. When I open the drawer, there is all the silverware and serving spoons. I push back on that and underneath is service for 16. There are small plates, dinner plates, cereal bowls, veggie serving bowls, salad plates and there is even room for a stack of paper plates.

The second deep drawer (same size) is where I stash all my plastic containers.

The cabinet above the DW holds coffee supplies and coffee mugs and some everyday glasses.

I love the setup. It is so much easier to use for setting the table and for emptying the DW.

We keep plates and bowls in drawers to the right of our dishwashers and cleanup sink, and the glasses and some cups, as well as serveware in the hutch on top of the base cabinets. We keep mugs in a shelf by the coffee maker with teas, etc.

We don't have pegs in the drawers, nor do we have soft-close drawer glides... just some non-skid, soft, rubbery type of drawer liner.
