Our house didn’t sell. Which is ok really. In the past week however, after almost 2 months of silence, I’ve had 6 calls to show our house. It’s off the market now though since another neighbor is buying the house we’d wanted just 2 doors down. I’m not moving just to move! We love our house and our neighborhood, so we’re staying put!
But that brings me to what our next plan is….
We’ve met with an architect and I’ve done some rough sketching on graph paper to give him a starting point for “the plan.” The most exciting thing to me is taking our current kitchen above, adding some significant space off the back of the house, and hopefully ending up with something akin to this dreamy situation!
One thing I’m most excited about is putting large drawers in the base cabinets instead of standard cabinet doors. It’ll be so nice to open a drawer to get out pots and pans, sippy cups, and the dreaded tupperware that currently falls on my head from an upper cabinet at least 4x a week.
And I’m wondering if you lovely readers would help a sister out with planning this beaut?! In addition to the lower large drawers, I’d like to include some upright baking rack storage to make it easier to get cookie sheets and whatnot out. Sort of like so perhaps…
So, for all you clever thinkers out there, and for those of you who have renovated a kitchen before (or have grand plans in your mind to do it), what would be the thing that you would most want to include? Or what is the little detail or storage solution that makes all the difference for you? I’m wanting to collect ideas here to make this kitchen into a high beauty, but highly functioning and efficient place!
Share your thoughts and ideas with me in the comments below? I’m excited to take you all on this journey with us! (Remind me of this later when I’m griping about our 85th microwave meal down the road mkay?!) 🙂
