My wife started looking through some of the newer designs of cabinetry with the cool innovative ideas. As Sac mentioned there’s all kinds of new stuff that’s not your normal cabinet. I was excited till I saw what they were asking for some of that stuff.
Island or Counter 240 VAC Duplex Outlet for Instant Teapot/Dualit Toaster. [EDIT] The Teapot and Dualit Toaster suggestions are favored here, as the Teapot gets used many times a Day, and the Brit 240 VAC unit flat "Gits After It", and the Dualit is "Buy Once, Cry Once" Best of Class.
Excellent Exhaust Fan(s).
Large and Handy Fire extinguisher, with "Pride of Place"
Air movement. Our kitchen has a sliding glass door and the sun beats through. We got those heat blocking blinds but the air gets dead in there. A ceiling fan is needed I know but if you’re starting from close to scratch there might be other alternatives out there.
On the floor of the pantry under the shelves, make sure you install a breathable, hopefully roll-out "shelf" on the floor so you can store buckets (i.e. food storage items) off the floor. This also includes making sure that with the addition of that "keep the buckets directly off the floor" shelf, you can still get the buckets in there. Adjust the height of the next shelf up appropriately.
If you don't want to tell your remodeler, should you be subbing the job out, that it is for buckets of LTS food, it could also be for storage of large, bulky items (paper towels, dog food, pet elephant treats, whatever...) at least as far as the remodeler is concerned.
