Today being the first installment of the tour, we thought we'd start with the 'heart of the home': our Main Kitchen. Welcome!
Be on the lookout for the rest of the house coming one room at a time, and thanks for taking a peek at our home!
We love having so many things out and at our disposal in the kitchen: pots, pans, knives, spices, jars of food items, etc. This leaves a lot of room in the cupboards, and makes cooking much more organized and fun (also nice when you need that last minute item and your hands are all sticky). This is a well used 'working' kitchen, but I like to think its a bit showy as well:)
We absolutely adore some of the antique features that still remain in this kitchen: Cabinetry, doorknobs, latches and locks, bead-board back splash, trims, solid doors, rustic wood floors. The original sink is my favorite.
In our previous home, we often had difficulties digging through multiple cupboards to locate that little bottle of spice needed. Martin designed and built our open spice rack to accommodate some of our favorite spices, and we've arranged them alphabetically right above the stove for easy access while cooking.
