I have been on the hunt for inspiration lately for my u-shaped kitchen. Every time Erika Powell posts a picture of her kitchen, I am inspired. I sit there and try to figure out how to use her ideas in my own kitchen rehab. Could I paint cabinets? I want my cabinets raised up. Could I remove cabinets to have open shelving. It would look really weird and our kitchen is so small, I don’t know if I would be okay with losing any storage space. Plus, unlike Erika, we don’t actually have a walk-in pantry. I grabbed the same counter stools before she did (I got my inspiration from August Fields months ago) and I’ve already got all the stainless appliances and wood floors.
Thus, more thinking is required. I think white cabinets, unless someone can make a strong case for turquoise or green (yes, still on that subject now almost a year later). I think painting the cabinets a color would require that I remove some of my cabinets and just throw stuff out. Argh. This requires more brain cells than I have available.
