Not only am I unsure of where to put this thread, I also don't know if there is already one like it. I did a search and didn't find anything, so here goes:
I thought we could post pictures of our kitchens here.
I have 5 pictures I'd like to post of my kitchen to start with, mainly to show how small it is. It's actually not a kitchen, it's a kitchenette. It may be an efficiency kitchen, but it's certainly not efficient. However, it is functional, after a fashion.
My kitchen has about 3' x 7' of floor space. Everything in these pictures is in that space. And the reason I had to take so many pictures is because there wasn't room to back up and still be able to see the kitchen!
And I apologize for the poor quality of the photos - my camera needs to be replaced.
Starting in the corner - the door to come into my room is to the right of the stove. I don't use the cabinet above the stove because it's too high for me and the door doesn't stay closed. I have it taped shut right now.
This was taken across the room from the stove - yup, that's the other side of the door. It just clears the cabinet when I open it. I found this cabinet on Craig's List and the only drawers I have in the kitchen are in the cabinet. It's where I store all my dishes.
My chopping block gives me some much needed counter space. The end of the wall behind the pots is where the kitchen ends.
Across from the pot stand is the sink (the towel isn't dirty, it's just damp). The double cabinet above the sink is the only cabinet I have for food. That's my only counter space (about 2' x 2') besides the chopping block and no, I didn't wreck it by cutting on it. It was supposed to be replaced, but the building ran out of funds.
We can place the fridge anywhere in the room we like, so I chose to place it just past the sink to make a small room of my kitchenette. To get into my room, I have to squeeze in between the fridge and the chopping block. There's really more room to get by than it looks.
The door to my room (the one between the stove and the cabinet) is directly across from the fridge and to get this pic, I stepped out into the hallway a couple feet.
Does anyone else want to share pics of their kitchen?
