...when your kids start designing unprompted layouts. My seven year old created this model and my five year old wrote out a to-do checklist, so we "don't forget anything." I did have to tell them that a lazy Susan with a pole and an over the counter microwave were probably not optimal, but I appreciate a cabinet totally dedicated to dessert. I also appreciated the addition of a fictional pet, though I am not taking the hint.

Love it! Is that a diamond tile backsplash?

I think a dessert cabinet is a wonderful idea.

These kids have a bright future...!

Nhbaskets, I asked and was told it is a backspash, though when I asked what it was made out of my daughter looked at me a little confused and said "marker?"

That's much better than some of the kitchen layouts I've seen.

A marker backsplash! Why didn't I think of that?

Kids are funny.

A dry erase board for the backsplash. You could use markers and erase anytime you want! The dessert cabinet is not that unusual. Don't we all have a cabinet or pantry space devoted to snacks? I love the color combo of green and purple with a little brown. Looks like a cool retro kitchen : )

Great mock-up! You must tell your child the pet must match the kitchen, however. :)

debrak2008: Yes, I thought many of us had "snack cabinets". One shelf is savory, the other is sweet.

This is so sweet! I must join the crowd because my 4 and 7 year old have been drawing the new layout for our renos too. (I'm thinking to swap the kitchen and family room). Every now and then I get a, " I have a great idea! How about we put the kitchen over here?" (The kitchen has ended up being swapped to the location of the powder room!)

Fantastic! I knew I was missing something in my layout: the dessert cabinet!
