Maybe it's a style trend, or maybe it's just an indicator of the aging Baby Boom, but we have noticed a definite trend in favor of drawers and roll trays.
Cooking center top drawer contains utensil dividers to organize essential tools for quick and natural access.
Adjustable full extension roll trays store large items and appliances. No need to get on your hands and knees.
For the record, it is relatively easy to place drawers and roll trays where none have gone before -- e.g., under cooktops and under sinks in vanities.
