  • RevAShelf & others make pull out shelves & organizers that can be placed in cabinets with doors. KornerKing makes a great piece to replace a lazy susan. As for the cabinet fronts - there are numerous ways to refinish them including ordering new doors & drawer fronts. A good carpenter can possibly even modify the fronts for you if needed. That is assuming of course that the cabinet boxes themselves are in good shape. As for using space more efficiently, it can be a ton of work but you can map out what you have, need, where it is used & start working on layouts that way or hire a kitchen designer to help you out.

    Look on the Family Handyman site for directions on how to make pull-out drawers. I redid my kitchen years ago by buying cabinet doors online, painting the cabinet face frames the same color as the walls(yellow) and installing the new doors with the old hinges. You can also get wire mesh pull-out drawers to fit inside your cabinets at home improvement/building supply stores.

    Could you upload a photo of your kitchen? That will make it easier for other hometalkers and myself to give you better answers and ideas! You can add photos by clicking the upper right drop arrow and select "edit" (see screenshot). Hope this helps! :)
