Kryddhylla? It’s Swedish for spice rack! I’ve always thought these under-counter spice racks you find in lots of Swedish kitchens are very cool.
You can see a red one behind me here in Skräddar Anna’s kitchen in this picture taken in 1984!
This one’s a little different. It’s in Berit and Gunnar’s house.
I wanted to find one for our Swedish house and was looking for an antique one that would go under our upper cupboards. But if you look at the picture below, you’ll see that blank panel on the very left. It was kind of boring, and kind of bothered me.
It was just there to hide some electrical. Hmmm. Why not put the kryddhylla there!?!
It would be a bit nontraditional to run it vertically, but, hey–why not! I found a source for new ones, that had four containers.
The glass inserts were square.
So they could go into the holder either way!
Five seemed to be right for the space, so we ordered a second one and did some creative carpentry.
And now we have our own kryddhylla! Yeah!
Oh! But on the other side of the cupboards, there’s a skinny space. It didn’t bother me so much.
But then look what I found!
Baby ones! Stay tuned!
