Space and Energy Saving Kitchen Shelves

Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose. –Charles Eames

This cabinet with drying-rack shelves eliminates that awkward, space-hogging standalone rack that never quite fits in the sink or the counter. Clean dishes go directly from sink to storage versus sink to drying-rack to storage, reducing labor and arguments about whose turn it is to put away the dishes. It also proves that smart design is not rocket science. It’s a willingness to examine the way things are done and see if they can be done better (via Dornob).

    Really great idea!

    No rocket science here – these have been around like 50 years or so here in Finland.

    But a dishwasher would basicaly dry all yours dishes and wash them while you can do other things. So I wonder if dedicating a sink, a cabinet(or more than one) and a side of the sink to washing dishes as space saving compared to a dishwasher.

    Get an extra dishwasher which can be used as a cupboard instead.
