The New Year is here, the holidays are over, and it is time for a fresh start — not just for yourself, but for your home as well! I like to use this time of year to really clean out my home, de-clutter and make it function at its best. We are all running crazy and are too busy, so we need things in our home to be as efficient as possible. The kitchen is a perfect place to jump start your organizing. Today I am adding functionality and organization to the pantry. Even if you do not have a full pantry, these tips will still help you make the most of whatever kitchen storage space you have and bring organization to a whole new level. If you are like me, this is what your pantry looks like.
That glass is called a coupe. Yet another lovely example of glassware that has a vintage touch, but those metallic polka dots will keep it from looking too kitchy on your bar cart. What's better than a set of gilded chevron glasses? A set of gilded chevron glasses with a matching decanter. These guys will look amazing next to your tiny fancy appetizers. For the young hosts, provide a few of these phrase glasses on your bar cart this New Years. I wouldn't blame you if you put a patterned paper straw in them just for kicks. Get ready to be amazed. These glasses… are shatter-proof. If you know that a guest you're inviting usually partakes of a little too much, make sure they get one of these so you don't have to clean up broken glass later.
It‘s the hub of the home and where we typically spend the most time, so that‘s why new kitchen trends and innovations draw the most interest. Anything that can make work easier, storage better and cooking faster will enhance your time in the kitchen. Besides, some of the latest technology is just plain cool. At the 2017 Architectural Digest Design Show, we got a look at the some of the newest appliances and fixtures for the kitchen. Sleek cabinetry is still hot and this kitchen island from Bauformat includes the latest must-have: Undercounter LED lighting. While it‘s a cool look, the addition of lighting under the edge of the counter also serves an in important functional purpose because it means no more digging around in a dark drawer or cabinet. Another great example of a clean, modern look is this kitchen island from Scavolini. It is also innovative because of the porcelain material used for the top. Textured, matte and durable, even when you touch it, it‘s hard to believe porcelain is the material. The cabinetry is equally smooth and sleek. Cesar, the Italian company based near Venice, presented a cooktop that is rather new for the American market but is more known in the European market. It integrates the burners directly in the countertop, rather than via a cooktop insert. Of course, this cannot be done with every kitchen countertop material — only those surfaces that can take the heat. The minimalist kitchen design also includes a folding shelf that can be turned up to hide small items on the shelf, or be folded down for extra handy storage space while working at the counter. The shelving also has moveable hooks along the bottom for hanging kitchen cloths or utensils.
