Kitchen Ideas for Bread Lovers-White Kitchen Cabinets for Sale
I love carbohydrates of any kind, but if I could have only one refined kind, bread (as part of a diet that includes copious amounts of vegetables, fruits, proteins and healthy fats, of course) would be just fine with me. Given that bread dates back some 30,000 years, I'm not alone in my passion.
If you're also a fanatic for a quality loaf (I have a heartfelt compassion for those who suffer from gluten sensitivity or celiac disease), here are some ways to incorporate bread into your everyday kitchen decor.
Find a proper place for the idolized food. I prefer to worship mine in plain sight, just as in this kitchen. Bread bins are a lovely way to add character to a countertop.
Tip: Bread stored in the fridge actually goes stale faster than if it's stored in a sealed container at room temperature.
If you prefer to keep counters clear, store a bread bin in the pantry. Here each of the bins gets its own shelf for a clean look. Pantries that close offer a good opportunity to experiment with bold colors if you're too shy to do so out in the open.
Pick bread bins in colors that awaken your senses. That way every time you open the pantry, you'll get a jolt of exhilaration, and not just from the prospect of toast.
Bread is so much a priority in this kitchen that a drawer proudly flaunts its dedication."The lettering was engraved right into the wood," says designer Amy Britton of Artisan Kitchens. "Then dark blue paint was applied before the final lighter blue was rolled across the face."
Tip: Hand paint lettering (freehand or with a stencil) onto a drawer for a similar effect that can be painted over later if need be.
Here, in an unmarked drawer, bread is safely sealed under a see-through cover to preserve its freshness.
Set close to counter height, this bread drawer is accompanied by a cutting board. This sort of setup is especially helpful during dinner parties when all the countertop space is being used.
We mustn't forget bread boxes built into the cabinetry design. Oftentimes created as an appliance garage, the cavity behind the roll-up door serves as a near-airtight compartment that's great for bread as well.
Not everyone can donate drawer or pantry space to a single food item, especially in kitchens with limited real estate. This kitchen gets around the issue with a bread basket hung on an entry mirror with hooks.
Tip: To re-create this space-saving cutting board, designerMarcia Moore suggests purchasing a narrow console table in any finish and adding a piece of butcher block custom cut to your preferred dimensions.
Breaking bread. Even more important than storing bread is the glorious consumption of it with loved ones. While I'm personally a fan of the barbaric tearing method, wherein only a pair of hands is needed to indulge in the beautiful loaf that sits before me, not all guests will appreciate being subjected to such a spectacle.
For a more refined method of cutting, a sturdy wood cutting board and quality bread knife will do the job best. The board shown here features a wooden lip that helps anchor it to the countertop for more precise cuts (and less chance of cutting yourself).
This is the photo that first inspired me to create this ideabook. I love how the bread boards are used as functional wall art.
Boards come in a variety ofshapes and sizes to best suit the loaf you've chosen to share with guests. They also create a display that's reminiscent of the old days, when they were routinely hung up for easy access.
