Our kitchen/dining/living room is all open plan which is lovely for family life but it also means that you have to be careful with the clutter. Oldest seems to be bringing letters home from school on an almost daily basis and as a result a corner in our kitchen has become a bit of a dumping ground for letters and we are fast accumulating a letter mountain. I would like to utilise this corner in the kitchen and give it a purpose and as a result stop using it as somewhere to pile random bits. I’ve toyed with the idea of adding open shelving but I think this will just make the space feel more cluttered. Therefore I am thinking that a noticeboard would be perfect as it will be somewhere for us to put all of the important letters and reminders!
Not on the High Street has a great collection and as they deliver to the Channel Islands they are perfect for us. Here are my top 3
- Grey pegboard with multicoloured pegs. This is a stylish board that would fit in with the yellow and grey design of our open plan living space. It would also allow me to peg up all of the important school letters and could also be a good place to hang my car keys off. The minimal feel would also fit in with the style of our house. It also comes with the pegs. This can be purchased from Not On The High Street for £45
- Regular blackboard sticker. Again this has a minimal feel which would work well with our house. It is easy to put up as you can stick it straight to the wall. Useful for writing reminders onto it but it doesn’t have the function for storing or sticking letters. If it was magnetic I could use this as a way of sticking my letters up. This can be purchased from Not On The High Street for £25
- Finally, our last choice for noticeboards does everything I want it to but it comes at a price. Taking its inspiration from old Parish noticeboards it is multifunctional. It is perfect for keeping us all organised at Island Living 365. With a blackboard so we can write our reminders, storage for our letters and hooks to hang our keys off. This means we shouldn’t lose or forget anything ever again. The only problem is that it might be too big for our kitchen. It is also the most expensive of our choices.
