Home Tour Tuesday | Kitchen

Ahh the kitchen - one of my favorite places in the house. I spend a lot of time in here and I am obsessed with the amount of space! Our last kitchen was tiny. Stephen and I like to cook dinner together and we were always bumping into each other and our cabinets were just about to overflow. We have so much room to cook together and there is so much cabinet space (we don't even have all of them filled!) I am also very thankful for the little things that a standard home has that our apartment did not like a garbage disposal, a deep sink, an ice maker, purified water (no more filling the Brita!) and a hose on the faucet for easy cleaning.

A few years ago, I found that yellow picture frame above the microwave and just loved it for a kitchen. Ever since then, I've added yellow and black pieces to make our kitchen theme "yellow". 

We don't have an eat-in kitchen so I knew we would need to utilize the bar space for our casual meals. I snagged these bar stools during the Memorial Day sales at Target and we love them! We've gotten to where we eat all of our meals here. 

The kitchen opens right into the family room and has the best view of the house. The view definitely makes cleaning dishes a lot more enjoyable.

This view never gets old

I snagged that Florida cutting board from Kirklands for $4!

After taking the pictures, I added these pictures, the flowers and moved the red canisters to the dining room
