Rosie...tell me more about your small kitchen idea
Rosie- I like the photo you posted, but did not want to hijack your thread. Please, tell me more about your smaller kitchen idea. I know you said you have a larger kitchen now, but would like the next one to be smaller and include a table.
I am starting to wonder if all these big kitchens are losing a bit of charm. Yes, they're great if you cook and bake a lot, have a large family or just want a lot of prep area. But, I'm starting to miss the smaller scale of some of the older kitchens. Not cramped, but more intimate. It was mentioned on the kitchen table post...there's a certain 'something' that some of these older style kitchens possess.
While this style is not for everybody, I think there are some, who are starting to wonder if the big island and the stools are lovely for other people, but not really what they want in a kitchen. If a kitchen has enough perimeter counter space to be functional...is there something a bit romantic about a kitchen table and smaller, cozier kitchen.
Of course, I still would like it to open to a little keeping room area on one end, with a fireplace or wood stove :)
