We spend a lot of time in the kitchen and we're always bumping into each other or knocking things off the counter. There's not enough room to store everything and we have no pantry. We have seriously maxed out our kitchen space and there are things like our mixer that we got for the wedding that is still in its box in our spare room because it has nowhere to go. It's sad, really. So one of our requirements for buying a house is that it has to have a big kitchen. No matter what. That room is really important to both of us so it's one of those things we can't compromise on (watch, the house of my dreams will be perfect except for that big kitchen. Who knows though, if that happens maybe we could figure out a way to knock out a wall and expand? I can dream, right?)
I'd love to have any of these fabulous kitchens. They're open and full of storage, and the natural color palette has me not only inspired to bake but leaves me feeling weak in the knees.
