Get your kitchen ready for spring.
If you have a kitchen island, built-in storage is a must. A cubby over the sink provides extra space to display containers and tea tins. A wicker basket on the island and pretty jars by the sink keep the counter space clean.
Not only is open shelving a chance to display pretty tableware, you’re more likely to keep things tidy when they’re in plain sight. It offers an opportunity to get creative and clutter-free!
Use an antique wooden file box to store utilitarian kitchen supplies for a touch of old world charm.
Ample cabinetry conceals kitchenware and a stainless steel appliance garage by the sink keeps countertops uncluttered.
Keep a toaster and all its accompaniments corralled on a handy crumb-catching tray to make countertop space look instantly more organized.
“Young children love to hang out in the kitchen,” says Montreal blogger Kim Vallée. “My advice to parents is to incorporate a space where kids can play. Here a Copenhagen designer couple squeezed an inviting play area into their busy kitchen/dining area to meet the needs of their toddler son.” By creating a designated play area, the rest of the kitchen has a better chance of staying toy-free.
