And while there is usually a drawer reserved for eating utensils, I was recently in a home where we had to make a choice. Were we going to display plastic wrap and tinfoil or forks and knives? This picture perfectly illustrates another way to store utensils while keeping items off the counter without using drawers.
Cool idea to hang S hooks on a rod to store items. These rods are from Ikea. This might work above the laundry room sink for hanging a scrub brush with a long handle and old toothbrush for stain removal, etc.
