Between the kids, the groceries, the bills and everything else in between, out kitchen counter tops seem to always be cluttered and chaotic. Not to mention, they’re never stylish enough to act as a decor-worthy aspect of the room. Well, let’s nix the attitude that kitchen counters are made for piling and get inspired. Take a peek at some of our finds and ideas on how to take those tops and turn them into organized and styled piece of your kitchen!
1.Oodles of Labels.
We love this idea for the pantry but it works just as well for the counter tops too! Use different containers and different labels for an organized, yet funky, youthful look!
2. Just the Fruit.
Make sure everything has its rightful place in a drawer or cabinet. This works especially well when you have enough storage space. Then, style the slick counter tops with a bowl of fresh fruit or two, for contrast and modern, chic design.
3. Open Shelves.
Get it all off the counters and into the shelves. Hang a basket on the wall for the mail and then organize everything us in the no-door cabinets. It’s a stylish way to design the kitchen, but also a clean, organized way to have space to cook, bake and entertain on the tops of the counters!
4. Decorative Trays.
All you need is a decorative tray that matched your theme and style genre to help organize, de-clutter and personalize! Keep everything in the corners at bay by using little pieces like this to keep it all focused.
5. Hidden Compartments.
Take your organizing skills to the next level by adding some hidden compartments! The outgoing mail, cookbooks, recipe cards, shopping lists and everything in between can fit right inside and stay off the counters, making for a cleaned and revived kitchen!
We love mixing compartments too. A vase, bread basket and even a serving tray can all come together to create a perfect place to organize your spices and most used ingredients, as well as utensils!
7. Think Monochromatic.
Use whatever you like to organize, but keep within a monochromatic theme. This will enhacen the clean and fresh vibe but also give your kitchen a contemporary, fashion-forward air about it as well.
8. Baskets Too.
Just like the decorative trays, baskets can help you declutter, organize and help to transform he space into your kind of style. From industrial pieces to woven traditional looks, baskets are just another versatile way to clean up!
9. The Ends.
This compartment may not be completely hidden but it definitely just its job in hiding the chaos. Cookbooks and the like can be placed right here for a snazzy look that keep the paper clutter at bay.
