Does anyone just leave the cutting boards out like in the pictures?
Do you guys worry about the dust? Is it visually appealing?
I did not design a tray cabinet in our new kitchen because I want a 42" three drawer cabinet. But I am not sure if I really need that big cabinet for dishes or other things. Without a tray cabinet, the places I could put our cutting boards in are either the toe kick drawer or the top cabinets above wall oven or fridge which are both not that convenient for daily uses.
What do you guys think about just leaving them out?
Here is a picture showing in toe kick drawer
Cutting Boards: The Trendy Accessory We’re All Putting on Display
Don’t stash your cutting board away, display that beautiful wood grain against your backsplash or anywhere in your kitchen or dining area.
Every season, there’s always one or two items we see our experts sprinkle into their kitchen designs. In the past, we’ve had chalk boards, milk-glass bottles and vintage signs to name a few. Lately we’ve noticed that cutting boards are not being tucked away in the pantry, they’re out on display for all the world to see.
When shopping for cutting boards, look for hardwoods like maple, walnut, cherry, teak and bamboo. These are the best choice due to their durability and the pretty patina that will develop over time.
If you looking for something new to collect, culinary-wise, cutting boards are a practical choice. Don’t limit yourself to just boards, try pizza peels, wooden salad bowls and dough bowls.
The popularity of farmhouse style, thanks in part to our own Joanna Gaines and Fixer Upper, may have helped contribute to this new look. And it’s a no-brainer to see that natural wood is the perfect accompaniment to a white color palette and vintage dishware.
Even in contemporary-style kitchens where gray is becoming the new white, cutting boards are still the perfect functional accessory.
Mixed media – like these wood and marble boards – are a smart choice, not only for design style, but for practicality too. Marble, granite, slate or other natural stone are great for serving cheese. Put your marble board in the fridge for an hour so before serving, it’ll help keep the cheese cold throughout your party.
Look for a variety of shapes and species if displaying multiple boards. Rectangular bread boards are easy to find and inexpensive, and round boards not only look cool, they’re very handy for pizza parties.
Decorating Dilemma: How to Decorate Above Your Stove
Some spots in your home are easy to decorate. Others … not so much. One of those problematic places is the empty space above your stove. Many of us have a blank wall there, begging for a creative treatment, something to make us smile while we’re slaving over the hot stove. But what? Here are some ideas and inspiration from my cottage and the homes of a few of my friends.
The photo above is of my friend Lisa’s kitchen. When she renovated this room a few years ago, she spiced up the space above her stove with a beautiful tile pattern. She added to the charm with changeable displays on the shelf above the stove, and on either side.
My friend Tammy has a light, bright, airy kitchen. She had the great idea to layer a mix of thin wood cutting boards behind her stove. The boards pick up the tones in her exposed brick walls, adding to the natural warmth and bringing in a bit of organic pattern. The variation in the sizes and shapes of the boards ramps up the visual impact.
When my friend Paula bought her home, she loved everything about it, except the kitchen. A complete kitchen remodel was not in the plans, but that didn’t stop Paula from revamping the look of the space. Paula is a very cleaver decorator, who has a home filled with beautiful treasures. So when she spotted a box filled with copper kitchenware at a garage sale (for $20!), she snatched it up. She installed a pot rack above her stove, then filled it with the copper pieces. It turned this lackluster spot into a stunning focal point.
When Nancy renovated her little cottage, she wanted to decorate it with her family heirlooms and antiques. She had picked up a piece from a cast-iron stove at an antique store, and was just waiting for a place to use it. The space behind her stove seemed like the perfect spot. That was before she tried to pick the darn thing up. It weighted a ton. In fact, it was so heavy, her ever-patient husband, Don, purchased a hydraulic lift just to put it in place. If it had been my husband, he would have given me that “Are you crazy?” look when I asked him to make these accommodations, and the poor antique would have been drug to the garden, leaned against a stone wall, with a plant stuck in front of it.
You don’t have to look very hard to tell that my stove never gets used. I can’t help it: I am allergic to cooking. Since I don’t have to worry about the stove’s functionality, I can go crazy when decorating around it – nothing will ever be at risk of catching fire. Right now, it’s home for an oil painting done by my great aunt.
As I have decorated the little cottage next door, where my mom lived at the end of her life, I’m finding it a great place to put the extra furniture and accents I cannot fit into my own cottage. Case in point: this set of Limoges fish plates. I spotted these beauties when I was treating myself to my annual I-survived-the-holiday-season-working-retail splurge. I didn’t have room to put them up in my cottage, so they got moved next door to mom’s. The spot above the stove was perfect.

There is practically no one in the bus station. Two guys look at me to look sideways, they come up. They smell like fumes, they begin to roughly roll up to me. They say where the beauty is going, let's go better with us and everything in this spirit. Well, I think, what have I got to lose.

I've already done everything, it's time to go to the beach. Now mom. I quickly jumped up and headed for the shower. It was a bit unusual to walk past my mother without panties, and I instinctively covered myself with my hand, glancing at her stealthily. Mom looked out the window, smiling, apparently sensing my condition.Making A Brickwork End Grain Cutting Board -- Aussie Hardwood Chopping Board
