Since bread boxes are rarely used in the United States, there will be a lot of you out there who have never heard of this. In case you are not aware, a bread box will prevent mice or bugs from getting into your bread. It also keeps your bags of bread hidden away under something stylish, rather than leaving a plastic bread bag out on the counter or in the refrigerator. This one in particular is black and white, and it fits perfectly with Farmhouse, Shabby Chic, or Cottagecore style decor.
Here in the United States, bread boxes are not as common as they are in Europe. While bread doesn’t need to be refrigerated, a lot of people tend to leave their bread in the fridge if they want to keep it off the counter. This can have a negative effect, because the bread can get crushed by the food. Bread boxes really do make a lot of sense to keep on your kitchen counter. When I was staying in England, I noticed how easy it was to keep the countertop near and tidy because of the bread box, and it’s something that I want for my own home someday.
