What makes your small kitchen so cool?
The gorgeous, expansive counter tops - they're as great for entertaining company as they are for rolling dough AND they're naturally antimicrobial so I don't have to be afraid of germies hiding on them! Also, I now have a secret pull-out garbage can so I can scrape food directly from the counter into the trash! Oh, and there's a dishwasher hiding in there, too! How cool is that!?
One challenge you overcame in your small kitchen, or a good resource you've found.
SPACE! We had none - if you look at the "before" kitchen it's kinda hilarious how little the cabinets are. We freed up a ton of counter space by installing an OTR microwave and exchanging our island layout for a solid peninsula. Getting giant upper cabinets provides a ton of storage as well, and all of our cabinets are much taller than our old ones.By opting for deep drawers for storage instead of cabinets (which tend to accrue clutter faster) we are also able to utilize the space we do have more efficiently. We can reach to the very back of our drawers with ease - instead of fighting clutter to get to the back of a cabinet.
Favorite Meal to Cook in Kitchen
I love baking - so I've been taking advantage of my counters by making anything that requires rolling, kneading, or cutting. The recent roster includes cinnamon pull apart bread and various cookies. Meal-wise BF likes to entertain at the counter - so anything that I can lay out as a "spread" for feasting at the counter on our new stools.
