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!

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Mondays

It's Monday and time for our Krazy Klassy Kitchen review. Hello everyone, I have been out of pocket for quite some time, but I'm back and ready to get some feedback on this kitchen. Let's check out this kitchen.
I went back through some of the kitchens I had posted and honestly, I apparently really like the "white" kitchens.  I believe it has to do with the clean lines and simplicity of the white color. This kitchen is quite large, or seems to be. I like the counter top on the island as well. The french doors to outside provide some gorgeous light into this kitchen. Speaking of lights, I could do without the hanging lights over the island. I do like the recessed lighting under the counters providing light on the counters.  I do like the wood flooring, but do not care for the color of the stove. Let me know your thoughts!!!

DIY Kitchen Cleaner and Cleaning Routine

This video has some great basic tips. One tip I would add to the cleaning of the fridge is that I use cloth diapers for this type of cleaning projects, I also have the microfiber cloths. The one issue I have with this video is that my kitchen has two sinks and they are not anywhere close to the size of her sink she uses to soak items in.
I do not have any stainless steel appliances, and would love anyone letting me know about the olive oil that she mentions using on those appliances. I have never heard of that, but then as I mentioned. I don't have stainless steel appliances. Let me know your thoughts!
