Do you ever get so caught up in things that your mind just whirls in circles until you are literally nauseated? Like you’ve spent hours on a tilt-a-wheel? I’m a bit ashamed to say that my obsessive compulsive brain tends toward that fairly often…
So in an attempt to get the madness out of my head and onto
some paper my computer, I thought I’d share with you some of these amazingly gorgeous kitchens I’ve been scouring lately (just click the photos for the original source).
And yes, that does mean that a kitchen reno might be in our somewhat near future.
Whenever it does happen, though, I have big plans to tear down the wall between our kitchen and dining room. That, however, is the main wall of the current kitchen (with our oven, stove, and the majority of our cabinetry and counter space). So to counteract that, we’ll need an enormous island. I couldn’t be more excited.
I love how a big kitchen island allows a gathering place. A “home base,” if you will, for cooking, eating, sharing, crafting, playing…
I love to
cook eat, so I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, and I’m excited to make it a place where my loved ones can gather and join me.
Naturally, I have a few other things on my wish list, like amazing lighting.
Maybe even amazing lighting combined with a pot rack (so creative, right?!?!).
And crisp white, tailored cabinets are definitely the direction I want to go.
But, most importantly, an enormous, glorious island.
What do you think? Do you love big island kitchens as much as I do?
