6. Mail-Slot Style
Kitchen countertops sometimes feel like magnets for bills, magazines, electronics, and office supplies. This of course means you can never find what you're looking for in the pile of papers. Contain the clutter with a small command center. File away mail, chicly stock supplies, and have a designated home for cell phones and cameras with cubbies and file folders.
7. Towel Placement
Did you know the handle on your stove isn't a towel bar? It's for safely opening and closing the door! Often, these rags end up on the floor or slide around. Remove this safety hazard, and build a unique addition to your kitchen. Paper towels and kitchen rags have a safe home in this slide-out towel-bar cabinet.
