When it comes to kitchen design and decoration I stick to three rules to create a happy and cozy eating space. For me, comfortably is a key but an open counter space with little to no clutter and everything being in reach for me is also crucial. Since I sometimes do homework, blog or other work related projects at the kitchen table in the mornings or at dinner time, comfort is a high priority. I prefer chairs with a soft backing so my back won't hate me later in the day. For a more retro vibe, I like the idea of mismatching chair;, it gives the room a little more charm, don't you think? If there is one room where I do not want to see a mess, it's the kitchen. I cannot stand clutter! Keep it simple and only display what you use regularly. I try to keep a minimalist approach to organizing the kitchen counter-tops otherwise I'll just want to clean all the time. And one last request, overhead storage space is the worst for me. I have to keep a stool in the kitchen so I can reach. So I keep as much as I can under the counter, the last image is my dream kitchen! What are important do's and don'ts in your kitchen. What's your ideal kitchen space look like?
