Even something as simple and ordinary as your kitchen utensil holder
 can make a statement!

Love that tiered wire basket. I keep trying to think of a reason why I need one of those! But, the trophy cups are my favorite as well. I stored all of my utensils away a few years ago to clear the counter, but you have me reconsidering putting them out!

Does a drawer count as unique? After I staged our house to sell years back, I got very used to the uncluttered countertop. Love these ideas though. Hmmm...

A utensil jar is one of the only things I keep on my counter. I love all these creative ideas! I've had the same white one for 15 years….I think it's time to look around for something a little more creative! Thanks for sharing all these pretty ideas. Love the white pitchers, and also the silver trophies with that fabulous patina on them!

I love my utensil holder it is beight with floral print but has a cool almost ribbed texture to it, it's hard to explain. I picked it up at Homegoods a few years ago, I'm not sure what is was supposed to be since it had a lid but I just took the lid off and put my utensils in it.

the trophy idea is so fun! we have a yellow pottery crock made by a potter in LA. my brother and his girlfriend live there and gave it to us for christmas and we love it!

I do use some fun containers to hold utensils!! I don't have lots of cupboard and drawer space so it's kind of out of necessity for me but it works great!

I love the mixture of the clean whites and the rustic exposed woods...so pretty!

I love the trophy idea - what a great use for them! My utensils are in a square open wire container - sort of modern industrial. I love having everything handy, and it's so much easier than struggling to fit the awkward utensils into a drawer!

I just transferred everything into a ceramic crock. A plain white ceramic crock that my hubby had gotten in his bachelor days, but it does the job and looks much better than the stainless freebie we had gotten with our pots and pans when we got married.

I use an oversized glass vase but I'm going to be scouring thrift stores looking for trophies now that I've seen that photo!!
