When you upgrade your kitchen area with an exquisite soapstone counter or sink, you’re not just adding enduring charm and beauty to your entire home — you’re investing in a work of art. With a handcrafted piece from Bucks County Soapstone, you want it to be the centerpiece of the room. So, does it really make sense to leave it cluttered with appliances, dishes, and other items that distract from its natural beauty? We didn’t think so either.
At Bucks County Soapstone, we want you to get the most out of your artisan stone countertop in Bucks County. Here are a few easy hacks to clear up the clutter, create more space, and enjoy the elegance that soapstone can impart to your decor.
- Rack ‘Em Up
Mounting a pot rack near your stove to hang frying pans, saucepans, and colanders can free up space in your cabinets while helping you feel more organized. And as a bonus, many large utensils, like stirrers and serving spoons typically have holes or hooks which you can hang on the pot rack.
- Prioritize Your Appliances
Take a look at what’s sitting on your countertop and consider moving the things you don’t frequently use to another space. For instance, if the coffee pot is brewing all day, leave it out; that blender you only use once a month? Tuck it away!
- Stash the Spice
We’ve all seen them — the quintessential spice racks that are in just about every person’s kitchen. Instead of leaving these on the counter, organize them into an out-of-the-way space, or even use a magnetic rack to fasten them to the inside of a cabinet door.
- Mount the Mic
Your microwave takes up a significant amount of space, but it doesn’t need to. Although it may be tempting to simply drop it on your countertop, mounting it below a cabinet or above the stove can free up space without sacrificing its utility.
- Throw Your Knives at the Wall
Ok, so don’t throw them — but, your knife block takes up more counter space than you think. By using a wall-mounted magnetic strip, you can keep your cutlery and some other utensils out of the way, but within close reach.
Using these tips will help you address the mess, clear the clutter, and truly appreciate the splendor of a soapstone counter or sink.
