I finally have an island in my kitchen. I absolutely love it! It helps me have extra space for meal preparation and storage. On my island, I have a bowl of oranges, I try to keep these space clutter-free so that it is easy to meal prep and eat at.
I have my coffee area by my sink with a coffee area with my coffee beans in a jar. I also have my sugar in the same area. Above my coffee area, I have my coffee mugs. I also have my glasses above them.
I also have my KitchenAid, Nutri Bullet, and knife block on another corner of my kitchen counter. I leave my napkins, salt and pepper, and recipe book on the counter as well.
I try to only keep the things that I use most of the time on the counter so they are easily accessible. I have my extra kitchen tools and appliances downstairs.
