Kitchen Day Dreams!

Wednesday, 29 August 2012

Generally, one of the first things I do when I walk in the front door in the evening is head to the kitchen to start dinner. It’s a team effort and Jordan usually does the chopping (while I do the supervising), we chat about our day and unwind with a beer or three. Don’t get me wrong, it’s the favourite part of my day but our severe lack of space often has us tripping over each other’s feet and elbowing each other in the ribs. On top of this, we also have next to no storage space so pots and pans are often stacked on top of each other or stuffed into the deepest darkest recesses of the cupboards – removing one pan usually results on the whole pile falling out… usually on someone’s toe. Sounds stressful? It certainly can be! It’s no wonder that I spend a lot of these evenings chatting to Jordan about the layout of my dream kitchen. One thing I know for certain is that it will have SPACE! LOTS OF SPACE AND STORAGE!

I’m thinking something like this might work…

  5. Yes!- one can never have too much storage. I always love to see open/glass storage but you really must be disciplined to keep things uniform color wise.

  10. All pretty amazing! A large kitchen with loads of storage would be brilliant. Our's isn't too bad, but it's your dinner routine I'm envious of... Mine is usually the craziest part of the day, with kids bouncing off the walls, and animals wanting to be fed. Yours sounds so civilized and enjoyable! x

  11. These kitchens make my heart swoon. I can sit here and stare at these all day. I think the kitchen should be one of the most beautiful parts of a home because it really is the first place you wake up and go, there are plenty of kitchen parties and even if you're ever stuck in the kitchen cooking, at least it's purty.
