Too much in a kitchen

I love stuff! Then again I have always been a bit of a hoarder. The kitchen I have has just enough, though. Coffee machine? Check. Fridge and freezer? Bingo. But there’s a lot of things that I do not want clogging up the areas in my kitchen. A clothes horse? No thank you. What about a clothes basket? Even worse. People are often combining their kitchens and their utility into one room (since utility rooms aren’t exactly common anymore.)
Kitchens are moving away from being a room with a singular purpose. Gone are the days of Dickens where the kitchen was the hub of cooking and nothing else. The slow change into a multi-purpose room has taken many people by storm, A dining room with the kitchen? Sure. Maybe you do your laundry in there too? It’s the one room in the house that has evolved substantially over the years.
