Gussie Mills. Kitchen. September 27th , 2017.
Install a metal bar directly under your cabinets and throw on some S-hooks – viola! You’ve just freed up a couple of “miscellaneous” drawers. You know the ones – the ones that are so full with oddly shaped items that they’re hard to open and, once open, it takes a while to find the item you actually need. I love how this idea can integrate easily into any style of kitchen. Taking two minutes to install a tension curtain rod in a kitchen cupboard (think: under the kitchen sink) will reap major rewards when you find you now have an organized, sanitary place for your kitchen cleaner spray bottles. You could even use the rod to drape cleaning cloths so you have everything in the same place for some quick cleanup.
Even though you can now basically find anything you need on the internet, an old-fashioned cookbook can still be very helpful. Store your collection somewhere convenient like on a shelf in the kitchen island or somewhere handy where they don’t clutter the room. Having a wine rack in the kitchen is very practical. Of course, you’ll want it off the counter. A great idea is to have wine storage compartments in the island but you could also find some space for them in the cabinets or even inside a wall. It’s very useful to have dedicated drawers for things like knives, utensils, dishes, spices and other things which come in packs and sets. It makes it easier to be organized and the kitchen also looks more clean and professional this way.
A little retro meets industrial meets vintage with some bar stools. This can create the perfect transition between two seemingly disparate spaces, if that’s what you need. If natural, earthy tones speak to you in general, then keep this look going in your bar stool choice. There are plenty of beautiful neutral bar stools out there…and you’ll know that, with its being neutral and all, you will love it in your home. Nothing blends in quite like acrylic, and bar stools made this way are no exception. This adds a sleek, contemporary, almost commercial feel to the bar space. Upholstered seats are, as a general rule, certainly more comfortable than their non-padded counterparts. But there are pros and cons when considering upholstery on a seat that sees more than its fair share of staining potential.
You can have the traditional set of dining room chairs, but give them an updated look. Plaid is a pattern that is back in fashion, and it looks lovely without losing its classic appeal when used in dining room chairs. Choose dining room chairs that are of a different shape to suit your room better. Round or oval shapes work wonderfully with round tables, plus these can be matched with other shapes in the room to create balance. Make the head of table chairs match each other, leaving the rest of the chairs in a different design. This is highly effective as an update to your chair set, plus it can help to evoke a certain mood you wish to achieve.
