Kitchen Porn

I have a very tiny kitchen. To open either the oven or the refrigerator you first must step to the side and clear the way for the door you are about to swing open. My counter space is almost non-existent. Put a microwave on there and it’s the size of a tile. I have about 2-square feet for mise en place, chopping, dicing, slicing, etc.

I make it work, but it doesn’t mean I don’t dream. I often tell The BF that I want a custom-built house. Not so much for the architecture or a desire for luxe details. Nope. I want to build my kitchen from scratch. I want every beautiful detail planned to my specifications, ovens (plural, I want to two) placed at just the right height.

All that in mind, I thought I’d start sharing some kitchen inspiration with you! Here, I love the neutral color palette…the cross between farmhouse and industrial styles…the huge ceilings (HUGE!)…lots of open space for friends and family to gather…and that island! I **love** that island.

What do you guys think? What’s your dream kitchen look like?

  1. I completely sympathize with your kitchen envy. The boy and I rent a 1940s home with a teeny, tiny little galley kitchen that literally had NO counterspace (but we have a large, original enamel-on-cast-iron drainboard sink) until we refurb’d a workbench from his mom’s garage into a kitchen worktable. I love this picture/kitchen….

    I am particularly in love with the idea of an island that serves as a breakfast bar: http://www.designspongeonline.com/2010/07/sneak-peek-best-of-kitchens.html/basakpeek4-2

    and a friend of mine has these cabinets that are like windows that I LOOOOOVE http://www.designspongeonline.com/2010/07/sneak-peek-best-of-kitchens.html/timber4-2

    My dream kitchen would have both of these things, plus plenty of counter space for prep, a double oven set-up and include a walk-in pantry. OK, now I’m drooling…
    I love this post! :)

    • We are totally getting inspiration from the same places! Plenty of counter space is a MUST…I love open shelving but am worried that I’d have a hard time keeping it neat :\
