Cappuccino Counter - Obviously, martha Stewart entertains a lot more than I do, and has way more money... BUT! I do have my kitchen organized in such a way that there are "stations" located nearest where the activity is done. If you do it right, you don't have to keep reorganizing because it works.
Martha's Golden Rules for Kitchen Organization | Martha Stewart Living - Store things where you use them. Pots and pans are best kept near the range or cooktop; mixing bowls near the countertop you use for food preparation; plates, glasses, and flatware near the dishwasher.
