Honestly, I don’t think I could love a kitchen more. So far, besides that we don’t have the trim up, there isn’t one single thing I’d change except at some point I do need a new stove. Mine is just grubby. We’ve had it about 10 years. It’s dinged and chipped…fine for now but it’s on the long term list. Hubby says not until it completely dies but we’ll see.
But back to the things I love….(sorry for the “dots” in the photos-don’t know why they are there)
I love that I have drawers. I love drawers. I newer knew it but they are wonderful. At the farm house, I hated them. I didn’t have enough and they were always cluttered. That top drawer, it’s my favorite.
I can open the drawer and being it isn’t deep, I can find EVERYTHING I want or need. I can see it all. At the farm house-all this was in one DEEP squarish drawer. I could never find a thing and then bought another because I thought is was lost. This I love.
I love the pull out garbage. No worrying if the dog or kids will get in the garbage!!
More drawer love–I have never had the luxury of having a drawer only for pot holders. Yes I know…making pot holders need to be bumped HIGH on the top of my list..they’re awful. But the drawer is cool!!
Look at this….even more drawer love. I have a drawer for pan lids. I don’t have to get down on my hands and knees and grub around in the WAY-WAY back of the cupboard. Ah…I am using lids more now than I ever did!!
One of my favorites is this….a small counter on EACH side of the stove. On the left is the coffee maker. It’s not in my way at all. I love that. To the right I plug in the crock pot, fryer and those types of items. They are no longer in my immediate work area and the size of the counter is perfect for it. I LOVE it.
I love our cupboard that Hubby bought. Originally we were going to put the television in the cabinet over the refrigerator but decided it was more easy to see here. I have my vintage tins with red on top too. My favorite thing is the opening at the bottom though. I was hoping to find a basket to put fruit in and then I remembered that extra white bowl I bought at the auction. (see that story here if you missed it). I love being able to have fruit setting out. I think it’s increased my fruit consumption by double.
The bowl is the perfect size.
I could take an inch by inch picture of the kitchen showing each and every square inch of it. I could tell you how much I really, really like it.
With everything new and fresh, it’s easy to love. I am confident though that even as time passes, I will still love it.
