Knives usually end up hidden in a drawer; here are five ways to stow your kitchen arsenal in plain sight. Above: Fitzhugh Karol and Lyndsay Caleo, partners in the Brooklyn Home Company , added a clever kitchen addition to their brownstone in Brooklyn, a custom island of sapele wood with a built-in knife block. Above: First spotted on AT —a Vancouver couple renovated their kitchen and didn't want the typical magnetic knife strip or a bulky knife block. Instead, they used a $20 Ikea Kraftig cutting board, created holes to fit their knifes, and sunk it into the kitchen counter a knife block (the blades disappear into an empty space beneath the counter). Above: Kitchen design company Viola Park integrated a knife block into a stainless steel backsplash. The wood block holds 12 knives and is available in walnut, rift-cut white oak, and bamboo; $125. Above: Kaela Porter writes the blog Local Kitchen and lives in a 1,000-square-foot cottage. Because of space limitations, she needed to come up with a clever storage solution for her knives. She installed a magnetic knife rack at the base of her kitchen cabinet, so the knives are in easy reach. Above: In a house in the Netherlands, designers Ina & Matt added a built-in knife rack in a work table. How about making your own knife rack?
