I'm an interior designer – five things I'd never have in my kitchen, including the feature that collects dust and grease | The Sun

THE decor choices you make when designing your home can have a significant effect on your daily life.

An interior design expert revealed the five things she avoids having in her kitchen, including a feature that is a nightmare to clean.

The TikTok user, who goes by Project 23 Designs (@project23designs), shared her knowledge in her latest video.

For her first recommendation, she advised her followers to refrain from having too much open shelving in their kitchen.

She explained: "These may look great on photos but open shelves accumulate dust and grease, especially if they are near your cooktop."

The expert suggested limiting yourself to "just a few open shelves for stylish items and not your daily cups and plates."

For the next tip, she revealed that she doesn't like displaying pots and pans.

"Pots and pans belong in cooking, I would keep them functional for their purpose," the interior designer said.

She also advised viewers to restrict the amount of appliances on their kitchen countertops.

"Avoid crowding your countertops with small kitchen appliances and utensils, this will help you maintain a clean and inviting kitchen space," she explained.

The TikToker also detailed why she doesn't like cabinets that don't extend to the ceiling.

She explained: "These gaps will collect dust and will make your space feel lower if you have a standard ceiling height.

"I will take the cabinets all the way to the ceiling for a more sophisticated look.

"This will make your space feel taller and your upper cabinets will not collect dust," she said.

And if you already have cropped cabinets, she recommended avoiding displaying items on top of them.
