Breakfast bars are a versatile inclusion to any design. A place to sit, talk, do homework, eat breakfast - all within arm’s reach of your kitchen. A great breakfast bar will bring your family together in the heart of the home, while keeping them out from under your feet when cooking.

Keeping your kitchen clear and organised is an ongoing process, but here are a few little kitchen organisation ideas to incorporate into your routine which will have a big impact on clutter in your space. Keep Your Benchtop Clear This may be easier said than done, but starting out with a clear benchtop makes it a lot easier to keep it that way.
