The kitchen design is our next project… a challenge in any old house.
I’m not talking about the construction, the remodeling, or the cabinet installation. Yet.
Just the design.
It’s going to be Kitchen Week here for a while. Like Fashion Week in NYC. But with more hysteria, drugs, and nervous breakdowns.
Also, we can all just wear sweatpants.
I’m going to attempt to do the kitchen posts in an orderly fashion:
- Introduction—where you meet my kitchen and have wine and cheese with the current layout.
- Now that you’ve met the kitchen, we can talk about it behind its back… I’ll show you the issues that we have to work around, and talk about an eyesore that theoretically has resale value.
- We go shopping!! I show you stuff I like. We try on stuff we cannot afford. We say catty things about thinner, better-dressed kitchens, and get a pedicure.
- We discuss the seventeen-million layout options I’ve come up with so far. I ask you to help me make sense of cabinet arrangement, stove location, and the possibility of ignoring all wisdom, in favor of open shelving and marble countertops.
So here it is, meet our kitchen.
Try not to be jealous… It has lots of awesome customizations that yours doesn’t.
