Although building codes don't address kitchen storage or accessories, they are nonetheless important concerns. Designers recommend a rough guideline of including a minimum of 117 feet of shelf and drawer frontage for small kitchen design layouts and at least 167 feet in a large kitchen (greater than 350 square feet).
If you have corner cabinets, it's advisable to include a lazy Susan, pullout shelving, or another usable storage device. Finally, place a trash can under each sink or near the primary prep area. If possible, include a second bin in the same area for recycling.
