Plants are a great accent to use when styling your kitchen counters. You can either use one plant like in this kitchen by House of Jade Interiors or use several plants throughout your space. You could even grow fresh herbs and keep those out on the counter.
When choosing your kitchen gadgets pick more stylish items that you won t be embarrassed to keep out on the counter. Opt for a bright KitchenAid mixer to display or choose a retro-inspired toaster like in this loft kitchen by Caitlin McCarthy Designs.
Fruit in a beautiful dish always looks great on a kitchen counter or on an island. The marble backsplash in this kitchen by Kapito Muller Interiors is the perfect backdrop to show off the bright yellow of the lemons. You could create a similar look with oranges or limes.
For the ultimate in flexibility consider shades that can be raised and lowered from the top or bottom as needed. “These simple and sleek shades by Kirsch can drop down from the top or raised up from the bottom to allow you to control the view or the sunlight as needed“ says the retailer.
Grapefruit knife. OK this is the height of decadence. But in this two-ended knife the parallel blades on one end allow me to slice on both sides of the membrane at once. Then the other end which is serrated deftly cuts around the outside edge of the grapefruit. (Don t reverse the process though because it s not as effective.) When the Texas ruby reds come in I m a happy slurper.
“I would never skimp on a KitchenAid mixer“ says Hambright who bakes even at home and uses her mixers primarily to beat batter and whip egg whites. “I have four ranging in age from one to 17 and they are machines absolutely built to last.“Hambright uses one of her mixers as a juicer and admires the many attachments that can enhance the machines from food mills to sausage grinders. “But they cost hundreds of dollars so you should really figure out whether you re going to use one of those attachments a lot getting it down to how much it will cost per use before making the added investment“ she says.
