As you probably noticed last week, I’m starting to changing things up around here and am introducing a few new columns. Today will be my first installment of: I Love Your Kitchen Style. It is dedicated to showcasing some of my favorite interesting kitchens from around the globe.
Starting this column makes sense because I am the worst kind of kitchen snoop. Whenever I visit a new kitchen I open drawers, walk into pantries, and take mental notes of every interesting feature I find. Kitchens are so often the heart of a home and I never cease to be amazed by the variety of kitchen designs out there! Never a visit goes by when I don’t note something I want to add to our kitchen when we re-do it once and for all. I hope you find these spaces as fun and interesting as I do!
Today we are staring with Uncle Will’s kitchen in Rochester, New York. Since he is still a bachelor his kitchen only needs to support one person and a dog. When he moved into his house a few years ago he demolished the old kitchen and started fresh. On a limited budget he was able to transform his kitchen into a user-friendly cooking arena that is comfortable for one person, or four. With both my kids running around it last summer we still had plenty of space to eat and cook! Come take a look:
This was the kitchen when he moved in. Functional, but not particularly attractive.
