Funny salt and pepper shakers

Normally when you go to the restaurant you look for the salt and pepper and use them so as to make the food to be exactly as you like it. That is because people have different tastes so the cook in the restaurant will avoid making it salty or spicy, so as to please everyone and those who want it a bit spicier can add the extra pepper or salt. Any way we should do that at home, too, especially when we have guests and we do not know their tastes. So always try to find a neutral taste and add the salt and pepper shakers to the table. Here are some ideas of funny such shakers that will make your guests laugh or smile , but notice them.

Modern German Kitchens from Poggenpohl

Kitchens are not just a place to cook and eat anymore, nowadays are places where people converse, kids spend their quality time with parents, etc. The German designer Hadi Teherani from Poggenpohl comes with a impressive collection of modern kitchens which was started from the idea of cooking + living.

The kitchen is more than the place where meals are cooked. It’s a place for interaction between people, where people gather to chat and many more. Even in the smallest kitchen, it’s always crowded with people. I’m not sure what it is that’s so attractive about the kitchen, but people seem to like spending time in there. So having a modern and beautiful kitchen is even more important.

Different Styles of Light Rails for Kitchen Cabinets

The kitchen is the most sacred place in the entire house. More often than not it is the most favorite place of the entire family, and ideally the lady of the house presides over the kitchen. Now this is one place which has to be properly taken care of. Make sure that there is enough and proper lighting for the same. There are many different styles of lighting that are adopted for the same; the one gaining the most momentum is the lighting rail.  There are many different styles of lighting rails that can be incorporated in your kitchen to make it look livelier and functional. This is an especially important style of lighting because of the varied number of cabinets that you have in the kitchen, thus, lighting up the nooks and corners of the entire place.

Made out of halogen and/or xenon, the strip lighting makes for an interesting and very essential style of lighting for the kitchen. These track lights can be fitted directly under the kitchen cabinets in slots that are as thin as an inch. They are highly effective besides being very cost effective as they need a minimum amount of power to function.

Round wooden extending table

When you hear the word “table” you immediately think about a rectangular wooden thing that you use to eat on, either in the kitchen or in the dining room. And because space is really important and you want to have a large house, you do everything in your power to save space. And one of the most usual methods of doing so is by using an expending table. When you are home alone or you have dinner only with your wife, then a small table will be enough for both. However, if some more guests come to visit or join the table during a special holiday like Easter and Christmas, you should be able to offer each a seat at your table. And instead of having all your guests sitting one next to each other behind a very small table, you’d save a lot of time, space and energy by simply using extending tables.
