If you visited my home tour a few weeks ago (see it here), then you saw a few shots of my kitchen. It’s definitely compact, which makes it hard to photograph, but it’s been nicely updated with new cabinets and granite countertops.
Yes, I have to store a bunch of my cooking implements downstairs, but we still manage to turn out some pretty yummy meals in here!
As you can see, the kitchen opens to the dining area:
There’s also a small eat in counter, which my kids use all the time.
There are two small windows, one over the sink and one looking out to the backyard and screened porch.
I have had to minimize what stays on the counter so I have enough room to cook.
I also have a kitchen cart that I first bought when we lived in Savannah (so two houses ago) that has provided much-needed extra storage.
The chalkboard wall to the left of the stove is perfect for menus, shopping lists, or just notes for the family.
One thing I’m thinking about doing when I have some free time (ha!) is painting the walls to match the living room and dining room. They’re Oatlands Subtle Beige by Valspar and I think that color might lighten up the kitchen, which tends to be a bit dark. It’s on my summer to-do list.
Here are a few more photos:
That’s it! Small but completely functional. Here are all my sources:
