We/ I am starting to think seriously about how to re-do or re-create our new kitchen. Hubby and I are at odds somewhat as to how to proceed. I would like to keep it looking somewhat old...and he likes a newer look. He is used to putting in really high end kitchens in the homes he builds, but we can we afford these type of kitchens. I am the cook in the house and a pretty good one if I don't say so myself, and from the time I started cooking at the age of 19 I always loved cooking from scratch. I was never one to use mixes or prepared foods so I can get along well in a cooking style similar to those of old. We do not own a microwave and would never use one, so don't need to make room for that. I do have a Cuisinart and a Kitchen Aid Mixer which I use often. So will have to find a place for them.
I would love to find the perfect bread box and canister set for the counter and maybe that will be it. Hubby uses a French press for his coffee, although we do have a fancy electric coffee grinder. We need to add some storage in cabinets and drawers and are trying to work that out together. Hubby feels overwhelmed at the moment as he is doing all the work. My time will come soon. I have started a small amount of packing this week.
This is our kitchen today.
And for all my sewing friends, look at this 1950's kitchen complete with spot for sewing machine.
