Krazy Klassy Kitchen Mondays

Hello all! Look what I found for this Monday's Krazy Klassy Kitchen! I love the bright, white color which seems to make the kitchen area so light and clean looking.

I really love the wood floor in this kitchen. I do love the stove as well. It's very nice. Most of the time I do not care for kitchen islands, but this one seems to not block off the kitchen and works well in it's location.

One issue I have is there does not seem to be much counter space, or storage space. Having dealt with many kitchens that did not have enough counter space, it is a big issue with me. Even though there is the island, I still prefer to have counter space over that.

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Mondays

Wow! Have I found a kitchen for us this week! This kitchen's U-shaped design boasts helping high efficiency in the kitchen. This kitchen has a high ceiling as well as some interesting lighting.

I love the rich warm colors of this kitchen. The stove and the back-splash area are phenomenal! Such a gorgeous design and the range hood is hid beautifully in an elegant cabinet The floor is beautiful color of wood which goes excellently with the cabinets.

I do not like the light hanging over the island, it would something that would certainly have to be kept dusted. I know I've said it before, but I'm not a big fan of kitchen islands. This one, while I'm sure it is functional, seems to be in the way. With all the counter room, I don't think the island is really necessary.

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Mondays

Well I've found another interesting kitchen for us this Monday! I absolutely love the openness and comfort that this kitchen brings. There seems to be a very nice amount of storage space as well.

I love that the table/work area has the wine rack as the leg. How unusual and great is that? There is plenty of lighting and gorgeous cabinets. The Karndean floor tile accents the light natural colors of the kitchen.

I do not really care for the range or the hood area of the kitchen. It looks rather out of place to me and perhaps would have worked better closer to the sink area. I am not sure what the storage unit is against the wall with the clock. It could be just storage or decorative. The wood matches the kitchen area, but it seems to be just another area to catch dust and clutter.

Fabulous Funny Fridays

Hey all, it's Friday. Here is our Friday Funny for the week!

I really could have used this posted in my kitchen when my children were growing up. I certainly hope I was not the only mom whose children just knew the "new dish" would make them very sick.
They really should not have complained, I never made them liver like my mom made for us to have.

Did any of you all have grumpy eaters at home?

I often hear that people feel that "children are not as responsible as we were in our youth", "they do not have manners", so on and so forth. Society has changed of that there is no argument, however, people still do good things for the right reasons, people still show compassion and kindness.  It does the heart good to see that many children ARE responsible and have been taught to give back to the world they live in.

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Mondays

We have found a marvelous kitchen for you this Monday. It offers beautiful granite counter-tops and an island complete with it's own sink. This kitchen also offers gorgeous wood flooring.

The glass kitchen cabinet doors are very nice and go well with the windows in the kitchen. The stove looks to be perfect for family cooking. The style of the kitchen is very warm and comforting. I like the pantries on either side of the section where the stove is located. Nice touch!

One item which I really did not care for was the range hood. It seems to take away from the kitchen cupboards and does not appeal to me. I do not really like the island, as I am not a big fan. It does provide more work space, but because of the distance between work areas it does not seem to flow well.
