Kitchen inspiration

Posted on Thu, 6 Dec 2007 by KiM

My new house has a kitchen that is pretty cute but could use a HUGE facelift (if finances permit). Here’s a photo of it (not the best but this is the only one I have right now).

There are alot of things in here that could go, like that island table thing in the center. I think that was built for the sole purpose to house the dishwasher. The window (you can see a little corner of it) is missing a pane of glass and a screen so it should be replaced, and with a smaller one so I can wrap the cabinets all the way around (it’s really low). There’s also a door to the yard after the island that doesn’t need to be there. Plus, I want to open it to the living room. That being said, this post is another self-serving post. I have ALOT of kitchenware, but I am really excited at the prospect of no upper cabinets, and having rows of open shelving instead. I am not sure how feasible that is since this isn’t a very big kitchen but it’s a thought. So I dug through my photos and found some kitchens with open shelving, which has made my desire to eliminate the upper cabinets that much worse.

Books on display

Posted on Tue, 31 Jul 2007 by KiM

I adore this photo. Not only are the books organized by colour but by size too. Love the graphic effect.

Here are some more I really like. My favourite are wall-to-wall bookcases. But there are a couple of smart ideas below for books that maybe aren’t the greatest to look at. Such as the third photo. Place a REALLY nice chair in front of your books and no one will even notice them because they’ll be too busy admiring the chair. Or in the fourth photo – just turn the books around so the spines are facing backwards.

Shoe storage

I found this photo and thought this was a great idea for anyone who has a TON of shoes and is looking for a place to store them. So if you have space at the top of a staircase for some cubbyholes to be built into the wall or a set of tall bookcases to be placed there, it’s the perfect spot for that ever-growing shoe collection.

Books

Many people collect books and often use standard Billy bookcases to store them. While it may be economical, it is not a very unique way to display them. I can admit that because guess where my books are housed? Here are some interesting ways to display them that don’t necessarily involve our good friend Billy.
