I pretty much am happy with my kitchen. It was built in the 1800s, the cabinets were put in during the 60s, but are older than that (a man who helped us re-do them said someone probably rescued them from an older house). I had Corian counters and sink put in, new drawer "boxes" put in. I eventually want the old (again 1800s) floors sanded down and poleurthaned, and the wallpaper torn down and backsplashes tiled. But generally I'm not fond of kitchens that are too fancy, the ones that look like fancy dining rooms. Mine looks like a country kitchen and everyone hangs there. Actually the room I cannot keep people out of is my dining room. People love to hang out there! It is a great room.

I'd like a better stove and a convection oven.

Realistically - 36" 6 burner stove with a hood that vents outdoors, larger fridge, either dual wall ovens or a 48" range with 2 ovens, larger sink with a foot operated faucet.

Not realistic - all of the above, salamander, deep fryer, wood fired brick oven.

Well, besides a normally layed out kitchen, where the stove isn't around a corner on a different wall I would love a skylight. My kitchen doesn't have any windows and I always have to have the lights on when doing anything. I think I could fish one of those reflective, round skylights in somewhere... It wouldn't be exactly where I want it, but at least it would add some natural light.

Ohhh... I like that idea, especially when I have been handling raw meat!

We just renovated our kitchen last year, including appliances, and I got a new set of Calphalon stainless cookware for Christmas, so there's not much I need right now. A Le Creuset 7.25-qt. Dutch oven in Dijon is about all I want.
