here is my humble and mostly clean kitchen
my wife is going to kill me
and any complements should go to her, she picked the house and all the furniture, I just picked the kitchen stuff, but not the major appliances

Yeah, jeekinz. Like the one vilasman just posted

Right now I'd just be happy with a window and some natural lighting. Although there is a window in the bathroom right above the tub, so I could pull a Kramer and eat while I'm taking a shower. Then I'll have my window to look out

Two things I do not and will not do:
Foot rubs
Wash dishes

Everything else I will do, and I do, on a regular basis. Dishes are in fact the only thing she is responsible for inside the house.

The fridge is nice, we love it! Got it in February, a couple of months before I had the heart surgery. It is the only thing new in that kitchen outside of maybe the toaster and coffee maker, LOL.
The kitchen was remodeled in the 70's, and they did a horrible job. Covered up every problem they had. I have to re-do most of the plumbing, so until I get well enough to do that I won't have the water/ice features on the fridge hooked up. Or the dishwasher for that matter, or the garbage disposal...
Uggggg....... DW bought the house for the same reason someone else stated on here, to save money. Counting all the costs of upgrades and repairs, and considering we have done them all ourselves to save money, it adds up to more than if we had bought a new house at the time.
So much for saving money...

If it cooks with fire, it is a gas stove. If it has coils and no flames, it is electric.

Here's mine. The DW and I did all the work ourselves. Still need countertops. I built the island from a set of cabinets that was on the far wall (really had no use), the worksurface I built from roughsawn rock maple, it's 2'x4'. The top is black absolute granite tiles. We laid a floating engineered wood floor which is great on your feet and back. Where the wood french door are used to be just an archway. I found the doors on Ebay for $175 shipped. Refurbished them, and installed them myself. The martini glass graphic is faux frosted glass cut vinyl.

Thanks, or my DW thaks you - lol. It's a base color with a slightly darker color sponged on top to give it some texture. We hated it at first, now couldn't live without it.

Yeah, that's a pretty cool color. I think RR has something similar to it that I saw last night on one of her '08 shows. It looks very nice with your dark wood. Much better than her TV kitchen

I've had kitchens that small twice in my life. Both were apartments, and they taught me to work in a clean and organized manner. I developed the concept of mise en place before I knew the term. Many cooks in pro kitchens have no more space to work than that.

A gas stove has a flame in the burner when you turn it on - it's hard to miss Yours is electric.
