Kitchen pics - before and after

Here are some pics of my kitchen. I still have a ways to go, but I'm getting there.

Good job so far, I love the colour of the walls, a gorgeous terracotta, very mediterranean! And nice baskets next to the oven! I want some of those!

Very nice vagriller,
I really like that your stove tucks under the counter on the left, and you have that roll-away counter to the right. I'd have a real rough top on the roll-away so I could clamp hand cranked grinders to it without caring about damaging the surface.

We want to install a white range hood, paint the countertops a more neutral color (till we figure out a more permanent solution), put down cherry laminate on the floor, and change the hardware to a brushed nickel. Also on the other side there is spot where the fridge went (our new fridge was too big to fit there) and we are going to put a bakers rack for the microwave and cookbooks. Probably some other stuff too, but we really need to decide on a theme for our decor. Suggestions?

skilletlicker,
The cart to the right of the stove sort of happened by accident. The original stove in the house was a 27" drop in, and we put in a 30" smoothtop. I thought I would be able to just shave some counter off each side, but it wasn't to be. I ended up just taking out the cabinet to the right of the stove and we found this cart very cheap at Walmart. The cart will do for now, but it not very heavy duty.

Story of my life; what I think is the best part is just temporary 'till the good stuff arrives.

We would like to do something similiar to this for a permanent setup, but this cart looks much better than just open space. If you saw it in person you would know what I am talking about. It's a cheap Walmart cart. I really like the baskets though.

You have lots of room in your kitchen but it is quite a walk from the counters and stove to the refrigerator. I had the same situation in my kitchen so I bought a stainless steel commercial kitchen work table which sits in the center of the kitchen. It provides a very useful work surface and also provides a great place to put things and to transfer things things going to and from the refrigerator or to and from the stove. It can easily be moved for cleaning and is easy to maintain. I paid less than $100 for mine at a commercial restaurant supply and it is 30" by 60" by 36" high.

I just wish I had the room to worry about. 6' from the sink to the fridge, 3' from the fridge to the stove.
