Here is a tour of my kitchen:
1. Pantry Cabinet
I wanted someplace to put my microwave so it wouldn't take up space on my countertop. The shelf is reinforced to hold the weight. The 3 shelves where I store my small appliances (mixer, toaster, breadmaker, slow cooker, electric skillet) roll out.
I bought some bamboo dividers to put in the drawer to separate my knives and other utensils.
3. Pot Cabinet
|2 shelves that slide out independently of each other.|
|Racks on both sides hold the lids.|
4. Blind Corner Cabinet
|2 shelves pull out of the cabinet.|
|Those 2 shelves slide over to reveal 2 more shelves.|
|Those 2 shelves slide out for easy access.|
Now for the other side of the kitchen:
5. Utensil drawer
|Double-decker partitions for different utensils. The top slides back to reveal the bottom.|
6. Pan cabinet
|Cookie sheets, racks, and cutting boards are stored here.|
7. Spice Cabinet
All of the doors have the soft close feature, except for the spice cabinet. I like having my pantry redone (seen just behind the spice cabinet). I have plenty of space; in fact, I have a couple of cabinets with not a lot in them. Especially the lazy susan; I have very little in there because I just don't know what to put in there.
I'm still trying to get used to having the oven under the stove instead of on the other side of the kitchen. And, I'm still trying to remember where I put some things!
I really like the undercabinet lighting, although it is just a tad too bright. We haven't had a dimmer put on yet, so it's rare when I have all of the lights on at one time. I do love coming home and seeing my kitchen when I come up the stairs, especially when it's clean.
As I said, I still have to have my ceiling and walls painted. One of my sisters suggested painting the open area a sage green and the area where the cabinets are the same color as the grout. I just have to call the lady I want to do it, set it up, buy the paint, and let her get to work. Once that's done, there will be more pictures!
