I think kitchens should be functional. Easy to live and cook and entertain in. Designed smartly and organized. But I also think they should be fabulous! Most of us spend a great deal of time our kitchens so of course we want them to look amazing . And when function meets fabulous in the kitchen it is a beautiful thing. Today I’m sharing an oh, so easy way to decorate our kitchens and organize them too! It’s my 10 MINUTE way to love our kitchens!
Today is 10 MINUTE DECORATING Love My Kitchen Edition! I hope you will stop by the blogs at the end of this post and see how they love their kitchen!
The kitchen is my favorite room at StoneGale. I love this upscale farmhouse kitchen! I always say, “It’s the workhorse of my house”!
It’s 20 years old and I still love love love it! It’s had a couple facelifts in all those years. But it’s classic styling keeps it fresh after all these years.
I keep my kitchen simple and functional because it gets used so hard! But, I want it to be a beautiful room too!
Today I’m sharing a very functional and absolutely fabulous and creative way to hang and organize things in your kitchen!
I picked up a few hanging organizational racks and some fun accessories at Ikea! Such a clever way to hang kitchen things in an attractive way.
I hung 4 large, sturdy mugs under my cupboard near the coffee bar in my kitchen. Originally, I wanted this rack to be more decorative but I quickly found that our guest and family went to them first to get coffee or tea! So it’s also very functional.
The rack even had a bucket accessory I used as a planter.
The coffee bar is not the only place in my kitchen I used a hanging rack…
I have a kitchen rack by the stove and cooktop.
I have a planter accessory that I use to hold my measuring spoons. I also added another little green plant for interest and “fluff”. Gotta love “fluff”!
I also hung measuring spoons that are too pretty to hide in a drawer. They get lots and lots of use! I found them on a trip to the Mothership (Savannah) a few years ago.
These racks could not be more easy to hang. They come with the bar, bar ends and small screws. The accessories are sold separately.
- Put the bar screws into a wall (or in our case beadboard) according to directions.
- Assemble the hooks and end pieces on the bar.
- Assembly and hanging of the bar takes only a couple minutes, it deciding what to put on it that may take longer!
This is such an easy, economical, functional and fabulous way to love your kitchen… and yourself!
I’m getting one more rack for my dish towels.
Just think of the places you could use this hanging rack! I have a couple for the study I’m making over. I also would love to use one on the back of the main hall bathroom door (working on the upstairs main bathroom too).
Now head on over to my 10 MINUTE DECOR blogging friends and see what Kitchen Love they have to share…
