Keep a uniform look on your countertops with clear storage containers. Buy them in bulk online from kitchen supply stores for less. They're good for storing dry cereals, pet foods, and snacks, too. Even apothecary jars with long lost or broken lids can be used to store a countertop collection of rolling pins on end./
Love this unique kitchen design with colors reflecting the taste of the people who live there (vs the cookie cutter kitchen look) Open shelving - less hardwoods used in making... vs closed boxy wall cabinets.
