The thing with the kitchen, there is a lot of space it's just not designed well.
Despite our home only being 2 years old, we've decided to have some additional cabinets added. Merely for my sanity.... and storage.
Here is a drawing of the design:
Reno's include: Taking down the hood fan and replacing it with a microwave/hood fan (this will free up the cabinet across from the stove) adding doors to the cabinet where the microwave currently is, adding a panty, adding a broom closet, a desk, and 4-5 extra cabinets on the top.
Oh, we're also getting rid of that hideous light over the sink and the ceiling fan and running potlights through the whole kitchen.
I love this design, as my main concern was making everything look like it's been there since the house was built. I'd love to change the finishings (the people that built the house were in their 60's) as they aren't my taste... but it really is a beautiful kitchen.
I figured while we're at it, we might as well replace the ugly back splash too.
I think I know which one I want, but I thought I'd ask for your opinion too!
