The kitchen is an area of your home that not only gets used more often than most other rooms it also contains more belongings. With items ranging from pots, pans, dishes and appliances to food and cleaning supplies storage is usually a problem and finding a place for everything essential in keeping things organized. And while a wrought iron hanging pot rack will help to contain those pots and pans, one thing that almost certainly comes to mind, when you consider kitchen organization, is kitchen canisters. When we think back to our Mothers or even our Grandmothers kitchens, our childhood memories are sure to retain a vision of a set of kitchen canisters filled with everyday staples. In fact, canister sets have been a constant in the American kitchen for hundreds of years.
Usually produced in sets of anywhere from three to five and sometimes as many as ten in graduating sizes, kitchen canisters are commonly made of ceramics, glass or aluminum. But there is no standard in terms of materials, canister sets can be made out of almost anything. Whatever material they are made of, kitchen canister sets are a great way to add storage space as well as add a decorative element to your kitchen.
It doesn't matter if you kitchen is big or small or even if it is old or new let's face it, kitchens become cluttered. Canister sets are ideal for creating a little extra space to contain that clutter. Traditionally devoted to holding the usual suspects of flour sugar, coffee, and tea, kitchen canisters can also help to increase the amount of storage for dry goods and spices. Smaller canisters are perfect for coffee, sugar and creamer. And you can even free up drawer space by using a decorative canister to hold often-used utensils, such as spatulas and spoons. Kitchen canisters can also be used in other rooms of your home. Try using a set of canisters in the bath to organize cotton balls, makeup, hair accessories and other everyday grooming articles. A canister can even be used in place of a vase. Fill an old canister with an interesting arrangement to display on your iron console table.
Decorative as well as functional, kitchen canisters can turn your counter into a kind of display, a reflection of your tastes and personality. With a vast assortment of materials, styles, sizes and colors kitchen canisters can be found to complement any kitchens design scheme.
