kitchen peeves and greats

This is our family room. A wall of brick and stone has come down now we have to get the plies out of the house, by Wednesday! Unfortunately school starts Monday and with it goes homework and kids to busy to help.So, I'm planning a new different kitchen...What are some of your favorite things about your kitchen? I've asked several friends and have these responses:
  • my island
  • the granite counters
  • my convection oven
  • my double ovens
  • the lights under the cabinets
  • one said that it is indoors...and has a door to leave it... there is sure to be story behind that response....
Please leave me a comment I am anxious about making this a better kitchen than I had.

What do you hate about your kitchen? I only had 3 things I really disliked about mine;
  • The 'narrow neck of land' to get into the kitchen..gone!
  • The PLASTIC drawers...gone!
  • the oven! almost gone...I've bought a new oven but the old has not been hauled off...

The lights under the cabinets, for sure. The extra heavy-duty drawer pull hardware ... don't know what it's called, but the hardware that the drawers slide out on. I have 2 extra deep drawers for pots and pans and they have extra heavy-duty hardware to handle the heavy load. The cabinet guys will know what that's called. I think I have regular heavy-duty drawer hardware on all the other drawers. My husband and our contractor over-engineered everything!

I like having a narrow cabinet for cookie sheets and cutting boards and lids. I have a metal divider inside to keep everything in it's spot. plus there is a little extra room above for a shelf for my colander

I can think of all kinds of things I don't like about my kitchen, what I like? Functioning plumbing, a dishwasher, stove, oven... but I imagine you will have all those things. Get a fancy faucet above the stove, that'd be awesome for filling big pots with water! Since I am soooo good at plumbing now, we are going to do that. :)

I love where my garbage cans are. They are behind cupboard doors and pull out.(Next to the sink.) I wish I had put in under cabinet lighting.

I forgot something else I like about my kitchen. I love the tile backsplash.
