Krazy Klassy Kitchen Mondays

Hello All! I found an interesting kitchen for us to look at today. Still deciding whether or not it's a favorite for me. I realize it's a smaller kitchen, but I find the remodel of it very well done!
First of all, by now you all know I love wood kitchen floors, and this one is exceptional in my opinion. I do like the counter tops as well. I'm not sure that I care for the color of the cabinets. I think I would have went a shade or two lighter than what they have done. With a smaller kitchen, when islands are not really an optional idea, using the counter area with chairs on the other side works perfectly. I find this a nice warm inviting kitchen. Other than the color of cabinets, I think it works well. Thoughts?

Five Kitchen Trends That Can Backfire--News Wednesday

Five Kitchen Trends That Can Backfire--this title caught my eye quickly! I really enjoyed reading it as some of the trends I have wondered about as well. There was not a cover picture for this article, so after reading it, I thought this picture would do well.

The article discusses how large open plan kitchens can be marvelous, but can also backfire due to possible organizational challenges. Having lower drawers instead of cabinets, open shelving, movable pantry shelves, and ceiling height cabinets are all discussed in this article. If you are interested in reading the article yourself, you can click here to read it.

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Mondays

Hello All! I found a picture of a kitchen with a huge island in it. It seems like it is more the size of having a kitchen table in the middle of the kitchen. It is breathtaking however. Just beautiful.
The counter top looks to be a gorgeous marble. The angled design in the wood flooring is a nice touch. The island seems to have a sink and lots of storage area for the kitchen, as well as some chairs for seating. The kitchen it's self does not seem to have a lot of counter space, other than the island. The ceiling is an interesting pattern, but I'm not a fan of the light hanging over the island. I would like to be able to see what is on the other wall, but we cannot in this picture. In my opinion, the island is really over sized.

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Mondays

Hello All! In looking over pictures of kitchen this week, I found a few that were pretty interesting. This one has some interesting points, but also a couple of areas, I'm not real sure about?
The kitchen seems to have a nice open airy feel to it. I like that they have seating at the island as well. I'm not real thrilled with the beams above, as that seems like a area dust would gather. I'm not sure around the area next to the refrigerator either. It looks like a book open on a stand, which would be great for recipes, but I would want it over by the sink or stove? I like the clean lines of the cabinets, and the wood floor as well.

And, just so you know, I'm the one asking if the bread is gluten-free since I've had to change to that in the last year. Have a great Friday. Be safe!

Six Top Kitchen Tricks

Here are some more kitchen tricks from Gordon Ramsay.
Some of these tips I've heard before.  Some of them I use every time I cook. Number 5 I had never heard before. I had not heard number 6 either. I will most certainly be paying attention to both of those tips! The tip about keeping a clean up bowl handy, is pretty simple, I cannot believe that most people do not know that? I move the kitchen short trash can next to me when doing prep work for this very reason. Easy clean up!

10 Hilarious Kitchen Fails That'll Tell You What Not To Do While Cooking--News Wednesday

10 Hilarious Kitchen Fails That'll Tell You What Not To Do While Cooking. Read this title and it had me. I just had to post this for you all. It sure made me shake my head while I was reading it. Wow!

I must say I don't think that I've had any of these things occur? Well, that's not true, I did have number 8 happen, but it was not a squash. And while clean up was a mess, it was all that had to be done, I did not have to go out and purchase a new microwave like I'm sure they had to do with number 3. Wow!  I'm thinking on number 5 it is hotdogs not carrots, but I could be wrong?  Number 9 has got to be the scariest! I cannot even imagine. Let me know your thoughts!

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Mondays

Check out this great Kitchen that I have found for this week.  I love the flooring and the back splash.
The back splash and the counter tops seem to give the kitchen the right amount of color. The white cabinets are very nice as well. I like that the cabinets have some glass doors to let dishes show. The island is well placed. That is so important. Often times it's either too far away to be useful, or so close you do not feel like you have any room. Plenty of storage in this kitchen. One thing I am not real thrilled with is the area above the cupboards. Perhaps there is lighting there we cannot see. No seating at this island, which I think would be a little more appealing. Let me know your thoughts!

Krazy Klassy Kitchen Mondays

Hello All! Here is the last Monday Kitchen for the month of March. Wow, where does time go? This is a lovely kitchen, not quite as large as some that I have posted, but very nice all the same.
The wood looks very warm and inviting. The back splash is very nice as well and compliments the counter tops. I do like the contrast of the dark wood of the island to the lighter wood of the cupboards and flooring. It makes for a very nice complimented setting. There doesn't seem to be a tremendous amount of counter space in this kitchen. The Island may have some storage, but probably not much, it's fairly small. I like the windows, but would have curtains of some nature up, since it looks like the neighbors stairwell is right outside. Let me know your thoughts!
