How do you use your refrigerator door? While some people like keeping theirs unadorned, many of us use the door for information or artistic display. I wrote about refrigerator doors in August 2007 - but here are some more options.
Sure, you already know about magnets, and there are lots of nice ones to choose from. (However, do be cautious about using small powerful magnets if you have young children.) But I couldn't resist sharing this handmade miniature ship model that's also a refrigerator magnet. (Seven different models are available.)
The Bendini flexiblr magnetic hook is a cute option. Update on Nov. 7, 2012: Sadly, it seems that these have been discontinued.
It's also sold at mookau, a gift boutique in Sheffield, U.K. Update on Nov. 7, 2012: Make that WAS sold.
Umbra makes some less whimsical - but very cool - magnetic hooks and knobs. Update on Nov. 7, 2012: I'm no longer finding these products, either.
Again, there are all sorts of these - many of them plastic gizmos provided by companies as promotional items. But these pegs by Najade are a prettier option. Update on Nov. 7, 2012: These have disappeared, too.
This magnetic timer comes in four colors. Another option is the Eva Solo timer which I mentioned here.
Yet More Magnetic Options
This magnetic organizer comes from Monkey Business in Israel.
You can create your own magnetic spice rack, as Ross C. did. Magnetic tins are widely available (see here and here, too) - and of course you could use them for something other than spices.
And then there's the blackboard magnetic coasters. [via Apartment Therapy]
For the Stainless Steel Fridge
Here's a product designed specifically for those with stainless steel refigerators: Happeez clips, available in a wide range of patterns. [via Cool Mom Picks; also available, in a more limited set of patterns, at See Jane Work]
