Sometimes you may want to do something creative and unique at the end of a run of cabinets.

It can either be for style, or even for better storage ability, but there are many things you can choose from to make it different.

Here are some creative kitchen ideas that can make your kitchen work better for you, and stand out from the norm.

Tall Broom Closet Cabinet

Instead of looking at the side of a tall cabinet at the end, make it a usable broom closet to put brooms, mops, supplies and other tall things in. It can appear that it’s just a standard cabinet end, but it opens up to a storage closet.

What more convenient place could there be for those types of things? Save the effort of walking out to the laundry room or pantry to get the broom.
