You know, I realize I never showed you all the new kitchen. If you are new to my blog let me quickly explain I had horrible water damages (repeatedly) from the ceiling of my 18th floor apartment. Otherwise it is a perfect place which is why I have been there for 10 years. The kitchen was a victim of some of those damages. You can read more about what happened.
Anyways this time around the owner decided to tear down my kitchen completely (walls too) and rebuild it. YAY! Of course since it is a rental I had no say in the process but I got better then before. I also have the WORSE tiny kitchen ever for a food blogger but I have learned to work in it very efficiently. You know it is one of those lab kitchens about 9 by 7 feet.
Once the construction done I got a chance to organize things to get even more free space; things like where to place the paper towel holder, I got a magnetic bar for my knives and tried to come up with a more efficiently spice rack solution. I actually made mine but I have to say I am not so happy with it.
Finding a store with a large selection of kitchen spice racks is hard t. But I found a great online store so now I am shopping for one. I don’t know about you but I have WAY TOO MANY spices as it is and I know I will always be getting new exotic ones. What kind of spice rack do you have? Do you have too many like me? How long before you toss them?
I already did not have enough room on my makeshift one so I am shopping for a larger wall spice rack. Wish me luck in my shopping!
Well congrats for your upgraded kitchen. I really impressed by your suggestion on kitchen remodel and make it beautiful. Thanks to share and such a wonderful advise.
Congrats on your upgraded kitchen. Nice color.
Love before and after pics.
Whenever I see someone renovating or moving furniture around… I get itch to do the same. I’m really crazy… my friends always make fun of me that my house is always different whenever they visit. They are not exaggerating… haha. I love your new kitchen! You must be enjoying spending time in the kitchen!
Wow, very nice! And I’m impressed you can do all your cooking so well in such a small space~
As the French say ” a toutes choses malheur est bon”; that water damage ended up making your life so much happier!
Thank you all
@cucina49…yep 2 weeks without a proper kitchen was hell.
@ken albala It’s already a mess lol
@DWei got a lazy susan in the pantry for sauces, vinegars, stock cubes, etc lol
That sucks about the water damage but at least it’s gone now.
Can’t help with the spice rack though, we have a lazy susan where all our spices go.
Really very nice clean lines. A very pleasant working space. How long will it take to get cluttered with stuff? I wish I could prevent it in my kitchen, but it seems to grow on its own. Ken
Congratulations on your remodel–I am undergoing one myself so I know what a pain it is!
Very nice. I love the look and the feel of your new kitchen! very homey 🙂
I love the look of your new kitchen! When I had my kitchen remodelled about 4 years ago, I sacrificed the space of two drawers to make one drawer with three built in shelves for spices.
I clean out my spice rack about every 6 months or so. Hope you find the right spice rack for your spices.
Nice, now its time to start filling up the spice rack!
