Do Your Small Appliances Live on Counters or in Cabinets?

Our kitchen holds quite a few small appliances -- rice cooker, toaster oven, mixer, food processor, and bread machine. Obviously, many of these are stored away, but I keep itching to put them all away and only pull them out when needed. My problem is that I have plenty of kitchen accessories, vintage flower containers, a Nigella Lawson bread bin, an owl shaped cookie jar, I would like to display but these necessary appliances are taking up valuable counter space.

Other than our toaster oven, everything is tucked away, but my husband refused to let me store the toaster oven, pointing out that we constantly use it and it would become cumbersome to put it away only to bring it back out a few hours later. I have to agree, so I ask you, dear Unplggd readers, what do you do with your small appliances that just don't mesh with the rest of your kitchen decor or are taking up counter space that could be showing off your cute kitchen accessories?
