Why Hide Lesser-Used Appliances?

I recently spent far longer than I needed to standing in the kitchen appliance aisle at my favorite home store trying to pick out the perfect toaster. Then it dawned on me: I am just going to hide it in the cabinet above my refrigerator anyways, so why in the world am I this concerned about how it looks?

Maybe I’ll stop hiding my adorable toaster and instead take a cue from this snapshot found at KitchenBathIdeas!

Instead of being hidden away in cabinets and panties, this array of gorgeous stainless steel appliances sits at home on open shelves, showing off their gorgeous reflective surfaces even when not in use.

I mean, we display vintage video games and music players as decor, so why not make our working appliances do double-duty, too?
