Art is definitely one of my go-to s for styling kitchen counters. You can casually lean a canvas against a wall like designer Caitlin Murray did here. You could also display a series of prints or paintings in the same frame if you like a more uniform look.
Built-in grills whether custom-designed or pre-assembled are a great way to make the most of your outdoor kitchen space. The extra surface area can be used for prep work sinks or burners while the base can be decorative (think stone brick or rock).
Wax paper. This oldie but goodie the ugly stepsister to plastic wrap is back in my drawer after an absence of many years. But wax paper lies flat on the counter to sift flour onto and it minds its own chemicals when microwaving dishes. Some plastic wrap fits so tightly over the bowl that it holds in big gusts of steam — an open invitation to a burn when opening.
For staples such as flour and sugar matching canisters are a great way to bring a bit of style to your space. If you have a pantry you can use the same type of canisters or jars in there too.
If you want to filter light and soften the look of your kitchen window – but don t want anything heavy or opaque consider using a fabric with a loose weave such as linen for example. Here designer Annette English complemented the otherwise pared-down look of the space with lightly textured material from Dan Marty Fabric.
In the battle between style and function function usually wins out when it comes to your kitchen counters. But just because there are some things that you have to keep out that doesn t mean you can t devote some additional space to stylish items that truly help your kitchen feel pulled together and well designed. And just like styling your coffee table styling your kitchen counters is a bit of an art.
