Kitchen Counter Weight: Respect the hardest working surface in your house
It’s a place to put your red hot pots and pans. It’s where gallons of messy foods and discoloring liquids are spilled each year, where the sink overflows and where you cut the vegetables when you can’t find a cutting board. The kitchen counter is where cans land when they fall out of the cupboard. It’s where you stand to get things off the high shelf. It has to be tough.
The counter is the main surface in the most visited room in the home. It’s where the guests always end up. It’s a place to put your drink during the kitchen party. It’s where the food gets laid out for the buffet. It’s where your new friend stirs sugar into their coffee. It has to look good.
The kitchen counter is also the place where you sweat the most. It’s where you’re dealing with hunger, dishes and groceries all at the same time. Food’s coming in and food’s going out while the garbage piles up. You’re home from work to feed the family and hoping you can spend some time together before you all drop off to sleep. It has to be easy....
