Ideas for kitchen display items

When deciding which items you might want to display in your beautiful new kitchen, below are some ideas to give you inspiration. Display space options include on benchtops, in open shelves or in glass-fronted cupboards.

Choose just a handful to put on display – for benchtops where space might be precious, your guide should be the key items that you use daily. Also think about balancing the sizes and colours of the items, and that items can be placed in groups if similar in material.
