Spice Jars

- Amanda

Last week, I wrote a short post about the plastic jars that I use for storing my spices, and was surprised by what a lively discussion it prompted. We thought it would be fun to open up that conversation again by asking you for your own kitchen design tips and ideas.

To break the ice, I'll start off with one, which I don't have in my kitchen but hope to someday: if you have stone or granite countertops, you can have a short shallow groove carved into its surface (off to the side or toward the back of the counter) for resting eggs in -- this way they won't roll around.

Your turn! And if you have photos of your design detail, send them to us at [email protected] and we'll post them here.

Pot Filler

Here is a photo of my potfiller, a wall mounted faucet that has been the best addition to our kitchen! We installed it over the rangetop, for filling large pasta pots, and placed our coffee and tea making equipment right nearby. That way, I can fill my water boiler for tea and my husband can fill his beloved vintage Pavoni espresso machine without carrying water from the main sink across the kitchen.

And above are some cool features from AntoniaJames's kitchen (described in the comments below).
