Hide the clutter–The value of an appliance garage.
Perhaps you can tell from my kitchen that I am an organization freak–everything should have a place. My old kitchen didn’t have an appliance garage, so the toaster oven, espresso machine, coffee grinder, and electric tea kettle sat out, taking up valuable counter space and looking cluttered. I was determined to hide it all in the new space. My appliance garage that I call “breakfast central” is hidden behind a stainless-steel flip-up door with a light switch on the side. It’s all cleverly disguised and tucked away when not in use.
