How do we love our kitchens?
We spend every moment we can in our kitchens. To us, it’s the small things that count. To share kitchen inspiration and tips, we tallied all the reasons we love ours. For me, it’s my pot rack. It works great in my small kitchen. Not only are all my pots in sight and easy to reach, the rack looks great, too. Plus, I hang all sorts of stuff from it. Managing Editor Candace Floyd loves what she calls her “flip and stir” drawer in her newly redone kitchen. Stylist Teresa Blackburn loves her bookshelves, which double as a bulletin board and magazine rack. Now it’s your turn to share your ideas.
