    Should we drop the 'drop zone' in the kitchen? Let's talk.

    in Design

    The drop zone is a dreaded area for most every mom and designer. How do we deal with it? Join us.


    Enter kitchen. Drop keys.


    Enter kitchen. Drop papers from school.


    Enter kitchen. Drop lunchbox.


    Enter kitchen. Stare at items that should be somewhere else.


    Yes, the last person is anti-drop zone.


    Why has the kitchen counter become a drop zone for anything and everything that enters the house. Mail, packages, homework, keys, wallets, sun glasses, coffee cups. It's all there. And it would be easy to learn everything you might want to know about a family from what is inside that drop zone.


    But what can we do about it? Should we eliminate it? Or embrace the drop zone?


    We're talking with kitchen and design experts-- Stacy Garcia and Lisa Smith,  from the weekly Twitter chat #KBTribeChat about the drop zone.


    Join us on Tuesday, August 26th at 1pmET to share your thoughts as we discuss the kitchen drop zone live on YouTube and G+ on-air hangout. Post a comment below or share with us during the chat. We'd love to know what you think.
