I know. Crazy!
This time, however, I care a lot more about how my kitchen is set up. After spending the last ten years in the kitchen (that’s what getting married and having kids will get ya) I have a pretty good idea what works for me and my stuff and what doesn’t.
But designing is all about having an “eye” and you’ve either got it or you don’t. I would say that I’ve sort of got it. I mean, I know what I like, I don’t necessarily think that I’d know what someone else would like. I can look at lots of pictures and say, “Ooohhh, I like that!” but actually doing it? Putting it all together so that it’ll fit in the space provided? Well, that’s different.
So here are some of the pictures that I’ve found:
Notice the similarities between the two? White, L shaped, center island, etc. We have dark wood floors (like the top picture) and I love the open shelves (like the second picture.) I want a stainless hood, maybe one that’s a little more sleek and modern. I need the island to seat at least two, unfortunately our kitchen’s not big enough to hold more than that.
It’s easy for me to find pictures of kitchens that I like. It’s the whole “making the dream a reality” thing that has me worried.
Guess that’s why designers get degrees to do this sort of thing.
