The packed lunch: it can be the highlight of your afternoon or a moment of dread. Aim for the former with a cool presentation that elevates any meal. 1. Organized for kiddos. Children can be such picky eaters. A carrot touches a kiwi and the next thing you know, lunch is inedible. Solution? Keep everything divided and neat with silicon muffin cups. Bonus: they’re also easy to clean. 2. Low key lunch that won’t embarrass your teens. Their days of toting around a lunch box are gone.
Give teens a more discrete option with travel containers that stack neatly into their backpack. They can even give them a unique twist with graphic stickers. 3. The casually cool work lunch. Forget the vending machine sandwich or bland delivery salad. Pack a simple lunch in refined glass containers and wrap it all up in a beautiful tea towel that doubles as a placemat. Kitchen cabinets play the obvious role of storing food goods, dinnerware, and pots and pans, they also have a powerful effect on the overall design.
Because they play such a big role in terms of the way a kitchen looks and functions, it’s important to make thoughtful decisions about them—from the materials and colors to the scale and layout. Whether you’re looking to build some colorful cabinets or want to install a clever, hidden storage system, these examples will inspire you before embarking on your kitchen remodel. Get playful with a family of colors. Go bold by painting your cabinet doors different colors. The best kitchens are ones that are efficient.
