This kitchen is easily about 100 times better than the townhouse kitchen when it comes to size and functionality. As I unpacked what seemed like 46 kitchen boxes, I seriously was amazed by the amount of crap I somehow fit into the last kitchen. Guys, side note.. What is wrong with me? There are only TWO of us in this house and we just became fancy last week when we inherited a foyer, so why on Earth did I have so many freakin' plates? The old kitchen had like 5 cabinets and they were literally filled to the brim. If you wanted something specific, chances are you had to dig to the back of the cabinet or lift up 10,000 plates to get to the ones you wanted all the way at the bottom of the stack. Totally normal. And totally a #firstworldproblem.
WELL, this is certainly not the case anymore! WE HAVE SPACE. Finally!!
I have a cabinet just for pyrex glass storage containers, a cabinet just for coffee mugs, TWO lazy susan corner cabinets, and the list of cabinet amazingness goes on. The best part? I've unpacked all the kitchen boxes and still have EMPTY cabinets... lots of them! YESSSSS.
So with that being said, the cabinet space and layout of this new kitchen is seriously fabulous, but there's always two sides to every story, right?
I really, really, really dislike the look of this kitchen. I know some people love wood cabinets, but I am not one of those people. I like white kitchens. With subway tile. And marble. Pops of color here and there. Yeah, that's what I like.
So I've definitely got plans for this kitchen. BIG ones. Come to mama!
Here's what the kitchen looked like before we moved in!
The cabinets are SO tall! I'm 5'10" and I can't reach the top without a step stool! I love how the kitchen is open to the living area with the bar and eat in space! And I absolutely LOVE the french doors that lead to the back porch!
So while I don't love the overall cosmetic look of the kitchen, I love the space, the layout, and the upgraded finishes it offers us! :) A little bit of DIY can definitely make this space more our style, and I am SO excited about the possibility this room has to offer!
Oh yeah, did I mention we have a ginormous pantry? We could be crazy doomsday preppers with this thing!
Must. Not. Stockpile. Canned. Goods. :)
So what do you think about the kitchen? Can you envision it in it's beautiful white and carrera marble glory?
