Q: Can you help my better half and I find a knife block/storage system that fits both of our needs? I want something that I can easily clean — no wooden blocks for me — and I love the sleek look of the magnetic strips. The problem is that my guy's family repeatedly reminds us that sharp objects exposed in the home is bad feng shui and we want to follow his family's traditions.
Are there any great looking options out there that cover the blades but are easy to clean?

Editor: Samantha, I personally really love knife storage inside drawers. I have a knife tray inside a big kitchen drawer, and if this is an option for you I highly recommend it. The tray rarely has to be cleaned at all, and the knives are safely tucked away and out of sight — but easy to find quickly. Here are some other reader tips and recommendations:
Readers, any thoughts or suggestions for Samantha?
