Krazy Klassy Kitchen Monday

Happy Monday all! It's Krazy Klassy Kitchen Monday! I have one this week for those who love the kitchen without an island! I do prefer not to have an island in the kitchen, so this kitchen is one I really like! Let's take a look at it.

I I love the flooring in this kitchen, but cannot help but be distracted by the design in the adjacent room. The brick looking back splash is very nice and provides that feeling of warmth in a kitchen. There seems to be adequate counter space, but I'm not sure about adequate storage space. The black in the counter top is not one of my favorites with this kitchen. I feel a lighter colored counter would work well, and perhaps help add more light with reflection in this kitchen. Let me know your thoughts.

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Monday

Hello! Welcome to our Krazy Klassy Kitchen Monday. Let's take a look at the kitchen I found for today. With the Holiday season, this kitchen is one I believe is worthy of a family gathering. As I look at this picture I can imagine the individuals who got up early, sitting and sipping coffee while visiting with the cook, while other sit at the  cafe table playing games or chatting.

The deep warm color of the wood cabinets with the white ceiling and counter tops make a nice visual picture. The island is large and has lots of functional work space and storage. The flooring around the cabinet is very unique and I love the honey comb look to it. The stove area would certainly be able to keep up with a large family. I like that the counters are very clean and clear of appliances. This, I believe, is one of my favorite kitchens so far. Please let me know your thoughts.

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Monday

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Monday. Good morning! I really like this kitchen I found for today. It is extremely quaint.  I love the warmth of the wood in this kitchen. One thing that I noticed is there seems to be very little counter space, which is an issue for me.

I It is a smaller kitchen, which would work well for a couple that has down sized, or is just starting out. However, I would certainly want more counter space than what this picture is showing. The flooring goes well with the stove and color of the counter tops. I'm not a fan of the lighting in this kitchen either. Let me know your thoughts.

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Monday

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Monday, hope you all are well! This is what I've found for us today. At first I really liked this kitchen, however, the more I study the layout and design, there are a few things I don't care for.

I I love the contrast between the rich color of the flooring and the white of the cabinets and light of the kitchen. The gray above the stove goes well with the stainless steel stove. I like the dark counter tops as well, it makes that contrast again of light/dark in this kitchen. The exhaust area above the stove, I truly like how that resembles a fireplace mantle. However, what bothers me about the stove area is there is no counter top space close to be used during cooking on the stove. I think of myself cooking and I always have things close to the stove when using the burners for cooking. Other than that, I like the lines and design of this kitchen, just not a fan of the area around the stove. Let me know your thoughts!

Kitchen Confidential: Behind The Scenes Of The World's Largest Cruise Ship--News Wednesday

Oh my, going on a cruise is something that I would love to do! This article is written about a kitchen tour that was granted on the Royal Caribbean's Symphony of the Seas.

On this cruise ship there are three main galleys that serve the various restaurants that are on the ship, of which the busiest is Windjammer, which serves over 5,000 breakfasts with just as many lunches and around 2,000 dinners. A fascinating article about how the people on the ship are fed! If you would like to read more, click the link here.

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Mondays

Hello All, we are wrapping up the month of November. The krazy, klassy kitchen I have found to look over today is certainly one that would I would love. It makes me think of a kitchen that would be in a castle!! I just love it!
Look at the area above the stove. I absolutely love the stone work that this section of the kitchen has. I wish there was more pictures of the rest of this kitchen so that we could see the overall area. I thik the lighter back splash and wall area sets off the dark wood nicely. I love stainless steel appliances as well. There is an island that we can see the corner of, but not the entire area. I am not a fan of the flooring in this kitchen, the color I like, but not the tile. Let me know your thoughts!!

8 Tips On Decluttering and Simplifying Your Kitchen

Her first tip certainly hits my nail on the head! So guilty of this myself! Her second tip is one that I have already addressed in my limited counter top space!

The one about pots and pans is pretty basic, but surprisingly helpful. My mom lives with us now, and likes to do the dishes to help, but can't really lift and deal with my cast iron as it's too heavy. This tip works well. Let me know what you think!
