Professional baker Peggy Hambright recently purchased a house replete with pro-quality appliances, including a Viking range and Bosch dishwasher — but that didn't significantly improve her ability to cook chef-style meals for her husband and friends at home, she says. "Even when we lived in an apartment with a 35-year-old stove and fridge, I already had the equipment that's important to me, like a good knife and my KitchenAid mixers," says Hambright, who is also a wedding cake designer and owner of Mag-Pies in Knoxville, Tenn.
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.
Here’s a great example by designer Tiffany Brooks which how you can display family photos in your kitchen. If you'd like to display photos, keep them corralled in one area of your space to avoid creating a cluttered feeling on your countertops.
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.
Most kitchens have dish soap and hand soap at the sink, so you might as well keep them in pretty bottles. In this black-and-white kitchen by designer Christopher Grubb, the soap is showcased in two pretty, glass bottles and on a metal tray. If you don’t have glass pump bottles, you can also simply choose a soap that comes in pretty bottles.
“When planning a kitchen layout, placing the sink under a window is a great option,” says designer Karen Sealy. “Having a nice view can make washing the dishes or prepping food more enjoyable.” In this space she specified shutters to complete the room’s transitional style. “Using shutters is a low-maintenance alternative to drapery that still controls light levels and views,” she says.
A colorful bouquet of fresh flowers will always look stunning on a kitchen counter. Though they'll need to be replaced, if you love the look of flowers, you can pick a bouquet up each week at the grocery store and switch them out. Use a variety of vases to switch up the look and keep your kitchen looking fresh.
