My husband I built our current house about 3 years ago. When we were deciding on a floor plan, I paid close attention to the kitchen space. Kitchens are my favorite place in any house. Its where I spend most of my time at home. I love to cook, and I cook almost every night. Except Fridays, I like Fridays off.
A large island was my number one priority, and plenty of cabinet space. Our house prior to this one had very little cabinet space. I clearly remember unpacking and sitting there on the floor and wondering what am I going to do with all of my stuff? This kitchen is packed with storage. I no longer have to store my kitchen items in an entry room closet.
Kitchens are not just my favorite place to hang out, they are my favorite room to design. Choosing our cabinet style was easy, but my husband and I couldn’t agree on a wood choice. So we compromised and did two. The island is a statement with the grey stain, chosen by my husband, and I got my warm stained maple cabinets.
I have to say, every morning I come down to the kitchen and I truly appreciate it. Especially when the aroma of coffee fills the room!
