I feel like I am betraying my beloved house as I type this, but I have to come to terms with this.. I hate my kitchen.. *sigh*.. I love everything about my house except the kitchen and the laundry area, but the kitchen is killing me. I have cooked two days in a row and I am already just "over it".
The kitchen itself is large. It has a lot of floor space and a TON of lower cabinets.. But it only has 4 upper cabinets total.. This is driving me bonkers. Having a bad back, i loathe bottom cabinets. I like to keep everything up in the top cabinets so I can get it when I need it, hurting or not. See my problem?
Now I have big plans to take a nice chest of drawers and make it into a rolling island, but until I find a good piece that I can work with AND afford, I am out of luck.
Also, as far as pleasing-looking kitchens go, mine is at the bottom of the barrel. I really dont like the look of it.. The stove is old (and it's a rental so I dont want to pay to replace it... yeah I know... I need to shut up then right?), the laminate countertops have some deep scratches, and it has linoleum!!! Not just any linoleum, no sir.. WHITE... solid white.. (sorry to you white loving ladies, but white is the bane of my existance)..
I do intend to change out the flooring, but any ideas what I could do for the stove and countertops?? Help me ladies... I'm begging..
