I dream of having a completely custom, fulfilling my every whim and desire sort of kitchen…someday. I like the style of old French-inspired countryside, farmhouse kitchen with worn-looking cabinets (shade of blue, perhaps) & large hinges. One of my favorite parts of the kitchen is a massive sink–apron front sinks are incredible and expensive.
I love the idea of an island being a center of the kitchen–especially if it has a butcher block counter top! My father’s party store has butcher block counters that have lasted him 25+ years…and are still going strong. I enjoy the rustic, unfinished look they have and their durability.
The walls would be lined with antique kitchen appliances/gadgets and pots/pans would hang from ceiling racks for easy access. I kind of despise having to reach into drawers to get them…
A double oven is a must. When you have to bake 1000 cookies, it’s just so necessary.
A professional-grade, gas range with something ridiculous like 12 burners would truly MAKE this kitchen. I could be making a bechamel, while blanching some tomatoes, canning peaches, stirring a soup and boiling some bagels AND still have room for a teapot. Yes, please.
Of course, this kitchen would take up 3/4 of the house and fit a mission-style wood table with 10 place settings. And a dog bed for Izze.
It’s fun to dream, of course. Do you have any far-fetched or totally unrealistic views on what your kitchen should be? 🙂
