Growing up, my siblings and I would often sit at the peninsula in my parents’ kitchen for either quick meals or just time to chat with my mom. She spent a lot of time in the kitchen, and I’ve happily followed in her footsteps finding that in my opinion: a day well spent is a day spent in the kitchen.
I filmed a short tour of my kitchen, check out the video below.
My favorite part is the window above the sink to be able to peek into the backyard. I also love using the warming oven during times we are hosting large groups, or if the timing of food prep is a bit off and I want to keep a dish warm!
We bought this house last year and other than changing the paint in a few rooms, and changing a few of the light fixtures, we haven’t made any other updates. I’d love to refinish the wood island and lighten it up a bit. It’s in pretty rough shape after 10 years of use.
We didn’t have a pantry in our other house, so it’s a delight to have a pantry here where I can store our food. We lost significant cabinet space for cooking tools and gear at the old house since half of the cabinets in the kitchen were filled with food, so to be able to use kitchen cabinets for cookware, serving dishes, and basically, anything else you would keep in your cabinets is really nice.

The shelf next to the wall oven can be found here from Ballard.
The wall color is Universal Khaki by Sherwin Williams.
As you heard in the video, though, I absolutely love this space. I hope you enjoyed the tour! If you want to see our master bedroom tour, click here!
