Make a kitchen seem bigger with Amish kitchen accessories

by Tom Grimes

Kitchens are often the highest-traffic areas in a home, which can make them feel cramped and stressful. One way homeowners can instill a sense of calm into these spaces is to reduce clutter and strategically rearrange items.

Clutter on counters can make any kitchen seem disorganized. Appliances, dishes and pots can leave little room for anything else and make it difficult to cook. Homeowners may consider placing kitchen accessories underneath the counters in hidden shelves and drawers, to make their space feel more open.

HandyAmerican.com also recommends light-colored surfaces, which can visually brighten the room and make it appear more spacious. A decorative mirror can also enhance this effect, adding depth by reflecting light and colors.

Amish kitchen accessories can also be useful in minimizing the clutter of a kitchen. Amish breadboxes, with their neutral color and rustic appearance, can bring some much-needed calm to a room. And, because these containers can store multiple loaves of bread and other baked goods, they can also keep your pantry more organized.

Other unique pieces of Amish-made kitchen accessories include cutting boards. These items are made with the same care and precision as traditional Amish furniture pieces, and they're sure to offer similar quality and longevity.
