I have come to love these mundane and mindless discussions about what would appear on face value to be of not much interest to people. Boy was I wrong. These small issues…well, they are quite big issues. HUGE. Important. People feel very strongly about the way a bed is made, or washing washed. Who knew?
This week I wanted to look at the placement of cups/glasses in your cupboard/shelf. Yep, that. I am always intrigued to see inside people’s cupboards and the question lies: cup up or down? I see some with the cup down – the rim placed on the shelf which would appear to me, the dirtiest part of the shelf. Others, shall we say, the people who are right, IE me, place cups/mugs up with the rim up (standing up) gathering dust and filth that way. And then where should the optimum cupboard placement for glasses be? A top shelf or down below? We have glasses up high and mugs down below. Namely because when we moved into our house my kind Mother in law unpacked the kitchen and that’s where she chose. And then there is the open shelf which I believe, is fabulous in kitchens because I like how it looks. But it’s dusty right? Should the kitchen be closed in, or open for all the world to see?
So what say you, up or down? Optimum cupboard placement? And open or closed shelves? And, most importantly, does it really matter?
