What are the two ugliest things in any kitchen? Think really hard. The answer (at least in my book)? Electrical elements, like light switches and outlets. Maybe renovators spend some time thinking about where they should go, but aside from that, they’re usually such an afterthought! And I’m guessing many of us just inherited them with our home when we bought it or signed the lease.
When I walk into a kitchen, I don’t necessarily want to see electric outlets or switch plates. I want to see pretty things and gear that makes me want to cook! Which is why I’m loving what Mandi Johnson, the blogger behind Making Nice in the Midwest, did in her recent kitchen renovation.
