« The traditional third-trimester kitchen remodel | Main | Not entirely sure that he likes the Red Sox »

May 01, 2007



Hmmm, I like the layout, and cutting out the windows sounds like a good idea, maybe frosted glass? Or glass walled cabinets so you can get the light, but still have nice dinners in the dining room without seeing the dishes.

I'm not a fan of microwaves over the oven because short people, AKA kids (or even me), can't take things out of it without burning themselves on the cooktop below, or spilling hot liquids on themselves.

Same with ceramic floors...I always wanted one until my kids got old enough to load and unload the dishwasher. A zillion smashed dishes later, I wish we had put in wood or vinyl or something with some "give".

Yours are a bit younger, so it may not be a big deal. Things to look forward to!


Sounds great! I agree with Aurelia about using a "soft" floor - we have hardwood in the kitchen and lots of things just bounce. Also, if you can, put in a real hood with a vent to the outside - it might not be possible because your stove is on an interior wall - but they really work better than the ones that just move air around.


Thats really nice, like the table in the kitchen, I currently have a separate dining room but I'd love to have enough room in my kitchen for a breakfast table.

I prefer tiled floors myself, easier to clean but things do break easier!
