newspaper door testDoors: love/hate relationship

Let’s say you have limited wall space available to put wall cabinets, or even just open shelving in the kitchen. Let’s also say there are multiple ways into & out of the kitchen.

That pesky door hogging both wall and base cabinet area is the solution, not the problem. So get rid of it.

Not sure about closing up an existing door?

Cover it up with newspaper & don’t use that doorway for a few days. Is losing it a dealbreaker? Or is it something worth eliminating to reclaim precious wall storage space?

We do this little exercise routinely with our clients who are attached to their doors & windows, but recognize they compromise their storage opportunity.

Not everyone opts to close in existing doors. But the newspaper test is a low risk way to find out what the real design priorities are.
