Design Rules for an Efficient & Beautiful Kitchen

July 12th, 2018

A look inside most people’s kitchens will reveal stacks of teetering dishes, pots and pans stashed wherever they’ll fit, and drawers overflowing with gadgets that never get used. If it sounds like an all-too-familiar scenario, you may be in need of a kitchen intervention! But before the organizing can begin, it’s time to take inventory and make sure your space is stocked with only the most functional, well-designed pieces that you’ll turn to for busy weekday breakfasts, Saturday night parties, and everything in between. Target’s new brand Made By Design has everything you need to clear the clutter and simplify so you can actually enjoy your next big project: getting dinner on the table. Scroll on to see our top design rules, and how we transformed our kitchen at the bungalow to make it the hardest working space in the house.

    I love the tiered cart – great idea for storing appliances that are not used everyday! Would you say it is sturdy enough for a Kitchenaid mixer?
