Islands make perfect little spots to tuck a few books.
I have even more magazines than I have cookbooks. Unfortunately, I don't have nearly enough room to store them in my kitchen. These shelves are a great way to store the newest issues, or a few old favorites.
Ah, the bookcase wall - I love it so much. And how convenient, too (though a cookbook collection that big would be pretty daunting).
These books might not be in the kitchen, but I love the way they're organized - great inspiration for putting together a pretty display in the kitchen.
A narrow bookcase along a wall is an efficient way to add books to a tight space.
I like the way this space makes the most of a kitchen corner - a desk in the kitchen offers a perfect spot for a laptop (which, along with the books, is how I find recipes). I also like the idea of using pretty boxes and baskets to store pamphlet-style cookbooks.
This bookcase is perfectly placed between those two windows.
When you're planning a kitchen, it's important to be realistic. This is how things tend to shake out in my kitchen - I've got a desk, which is a storage spot, and I use my laptop at my island.
