Meghann's Cheerful & Opened-Up Kitchen

What makes your small kitchen so cool?
The new kitchen is a cheerful, playful, and most importantly, open space that inspires us to spend more time in it creating delicious new food.
One challenge you overcame in your small kitchen, or a good resource you've found.
The 5th photo I've submitted is of our kitchen before our remodel. Our kitchen used to be a closed off space from the rest of our mostly open floor plan, feeling like a cramped, dimly lit hallway of a cooking space. My husband is a chef, and we were having difficulties cooking together in such a cramped space. In the remodel we made the 'window' to the rest of the condo much wider, expanding our counter space, and allowing more natural light into the kitchen. We also brightened the space by adding shiny white ceramic penny tiles to the entire backsplash and space above the sink. We found the tiles for cheap on overstock.com and paid a contractor to install them. Now the kitchen allows us to cook together, one on each side of the counter, and also allows us to socialize while hosting dinner parties, since the kitchen is more accessible to the rest of our living space.
Favorite Meal to Cook in Kitchen
Mine would be fresh baked bread. The additional counter space is much easier to work with when rolling out and playing with dough. My husband is delighted by the ability to cook meals for friends while having the space to have them help out or just sit with a glass of wine and have a good conversation while not being directly in the kitchen.
