Creating a display with your everyday kitchen items is a great way to maximize storage and decoration all at once.
Of course, it is ideal that your display is also easily accessible so you can actually grab and use the slotted spoon or sauté pan when you need it. Because of that, I'm not really sure I understand the first image — those pots look awfully out of reach and does anyone really need that many knives? The second image is actually a restaurant dining room and doubtful that the spoons and forks are actually used anymore — but it is a great idea for kitchen or dining room decor.
