Kitchen Baking Center
My new Bosch mixer/bread maker is arriving in a few days and I plan on leaving it on a kitchen counter. My dilemna is that I don't know which one. I prefer nothing on my counters but slowly they are filling up with items I use daily.
My kitchen and living room are divided by an island. I can watch TV from the island which, on occasion, is nice to have. The only thing I have on the island is a cutting board since I do all my cooking prep work there.
I've ordered a citrus juicer for the mixer that we will probably be using quite a bit. Eventually I'll be ordering a food processor for it, too.
It would be logical to place the mixer on the island but then I think it will start to look too cluttered. Does this make any sense? I have cupboards underneath the island where I can put all my baking supplies so that's not a problem. I have a corner area next to the sink that the mixer can go on as well as a long counter on the other side of the sink. But I'm pretty sure I'd rather be facing the living room when I'm baking, etc. since I now always put my old mixer on the island when I take it out to use.
Where should the mixer go? Trying to be proactive, I need to clean out my pantry this weekend and rearrange the cabinets so I'm ready when the mixer arrives.
