Over the years, the kitchen has morphed from a space strictly used to chop, dice, chat and dine, into a domestic sanctuary where all household activity takes place. This increase in activity has made the kitchen a very busy place. In order to keep kitchen chaos to a minimum, Shenandoah Cabinetry®, sold exclusively at Lowe’s, has recently launched a new OrganizationOptions program, offering even more stylish choices to help save time, control clutter and maximize storage. Many of the accessories are now factory installed, making things simpler for the consumer and easier on their wallet.

“As families continue to spend more time in the kitchen than any other room in the house, homeowners want customizing options that are convenient, provide extra storage space and make their life easier,” says Connie Edwards, CKD, CBD, director of design for Shenandoah Cabinetry. “The best part of Shenandoah’s OrganizationOptions program, is that these helpful accessories keep things close at hand, whatever the chore, whether it is food preparation, cooking, cleaning or storage.”

New options include, but are not limited to:

FOOD PREP:

Spice Drawer Insert Kit – organize spices for quick use near the cooking area; this drawer kit fits standard spice bottles and keeps their labels up
