I know white kitchens seem to be in style. As much as I love the look, we chose hickory cabinets to try to keep with the style of our old house. They have pegs in the corners which I swooned over.
You can read about our kitchen remodel and progress that we did all by ourselves here and here.
We chose stainless appliances for a modern feel.
In order to use the space behind the door, we created a counter for my Keurig and toaster.
Although we originally thought about a pantry, I love that it frees up our counter space.
In our old kitchen, I only had one small counter area. We actually used our stovetop often to cut vegetables! I don't miss that at all.
I couldn't get a good picture (due to the lack of lighting), but we have 7 stools total. Three are behind the counter above and four on the other counter. I love that we can all eat in the kitchen even with guests. I also love that the girls have can kneel on the stools to help bake!
We have plenty of room for cooking, eating, homework, and family time!
And that's a wrap! Coming soon: I'll show you some of my favorite features!
