EXPLORE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE HIDDEN KITCHEN FEATURES WITH ME TODAY. THE PULL OUT CUTTING BOARD, TRASH AND RECYCLE BINS ARE GENIUS!
It’s that time of year when I’m finding it hard coming up with things to blog about so today I’m going to share with you some of my favorite hidden features in my kitchen, the pull out cutting board, recycle and trash bins. I know none of that sounds too exciting but when it comes to my kitchen is sure makes it function to it’s fullest and it’s all things I never thought about until my cabinetmaker suggested them.
Here’s a little fun fact did you know that those popular pullout cutting boards are actually intended as a bread kneading board? Over time they evolved into cutting boards. I’m assuming as the times changed and people purchased their bread in convenient wrappers from the local grocery store; woman no longer slaved in the kitchen making their own bread they got creative and came up with a new use.
I had a local Amish man make my cupboards and he had all kinds of nifty hidden ideas and I had him put all of them into our kitchen. At some point I’ll come back and share with you the others. The cutting board gets used almost every day for food prep, I love having the garbage hidden and out of sight, and we recycle everything we can and this is the best keeping spot ever. The more things can be out of sight the better. I drive to the recycle center once a week and all I have to do is grab the bin and go!
I know once we sell and move these will be things I miss for sure. What’s your kitchens favorite feature you’d hate to be without?
