xpost:: Help me create a kitchen I love..
I posted this on the kitchen forums, but as I also live in a small home (about 1100sq ft) I figured I would also post here. I am working on getting the floor plan drawn so I can scan it.
Let me start by saying I hate my kitchen. There are lots of things in the house that could use some updating, but this kitchen is the worse. I don't really have much $$ or time to put into it right now, but I think that if I often think about researching my options and getting a binder put together and socking a little $$ away at a time. Then in a couple of years, I can take a sledgehammer and get the party started! (I don't actually want to do any painting, etc right now).
A little about myself. Right now its just me and my husband and the dog. This doesn't sound like much, but I loove to cook, especially from scratch. With cooking comes a lot of ingredients and a lot of gadgets/cookware/bowls, etc, etc. I feel that my kitchen could be much better organized, more functional, and more stylish. I want it to flow with the house better too.
Soo..I'm going to upload some photos. I can post measurements although I don't have a floor-plan made (I see lots of floorplans here...anyone want to give me a hint on what you use to draw yours? Or should I just put it on some graph paper and scan?
I have lots of questions. And yes, I know about the "read me if you're new" post. But what I really want to know, is if you were me, in this kitchen, what would you do with it?
