  • Counter space is better when there is not a lot of clutter on top, but what about a bread box, cute recipe box.

  • I like a few oversized glass containers for chex mix or other snacks and a silver scoop in it for the kids. Black wrought iron may go with your colors. Maybe a wine rack..I like to look at magazines and get ideas from them.

  • Do you have a Home Goods? They have great things. Take a look and see what you find.

  • i threw all my cooking utensils (spatula, whisk, wooden spoons, ect) into a glass beer pitcher and sat it on top of my counter, had 2 of them actually. i think it made me look like i do cooking shows like rachael ray.

    you could do containers that are normally displayed out like the set that includes 3 of them, one for flour, one for sugar, and the other one i dont know what pple use the little one for lol

  • Use the counter space for food preparation! I would love to have too much counter space. The irony of life!!
