open up your kitchen

If the kitchen truly is the room that people always end up in, why don't we all take the time to make our kitchens the focal point of the house? That is of course IF one has the means to do so.

Nonetheless, enjoy this selection of kitchen elements:

1. Soaring Ceilings: Who needs that extra bedroom or attic space above your kitchen? Gut it out! And allow yourself the freedom this open space offers.

2. Windows, Windows, Windows: If you have the opportunity to add natural light to your kitchen - do it. Free wall to convert into a window? Space above the cabinets that could allow for some windows to let in some light?  . . . Do it.

3. Farmhouse Sinks, Vegetation and a Gazing Window: I myself do not have a dishwasher and love the idea of a huge sink with a great window to gaze out of while washing. Whether you hand wash or machine wash, farmhouse sinks allow to pile in chores of all sorts - a great addition to the kitchen!

  1. I've always wanted a farmhouse sink, but my friend told me that her dishes often break in one similar to the picture you posted. Another friend has a farmhouse sink that's stainless, but if you have a belt or anything bothersome, it will def. scratch. Any other ideas? Copper? Not that I'm building or remodeling a house...

  2. That's sad. I haven't heard those comments before. But yes! They make farmhouse style sinks in different materials/finishes.

    Here's a link to a hammered/copper sink:

    There are even cement, granite and stainless farmhouse sinks!
