Making Space

Height-adjustable kitchen counters are nothing new, and, truth be told, perhaps not that useful. But everyone is interested in expanding counter space, and this new design feature can do just that.

This countertop can slide up to 12 inches in different directions, either perpendicular to the cabinet or diagonally off its corner at a 45-degree angle. Knee-space is created when the movable portion of the work surface is fully extended, allowing a stool or two to be tucked away beneath it.
