I have some serious kitchen envy! I unfortunately still live in a tiny Apartment. Our stove is one of those half sized "dorm stoves". It can be embarrassing when you have to take baking sheets back to the store because they are too big for your oven (yes I have been there). My Dream is to have a house with a huge kitchen. I love to cook, but it is difficult if you don't have the room to maneuver. I would probably feel lost if I had more than 2 feet of counter space and a full sized stove. Yes...I certainly have kitchen envy. I have some friends that have huge kitchens and never use them. It's not fair.
Anyhow, One of the things that I want most in my kitchen is a breakfast island with some nice stools. I have always loved the concept and the look. You can have casual meals right in your kitchen and it's also extra counter space in a jam. I have seen a lot of really cool designs that I would love to have.
Unfortunately, this is all a dream (please don't pinch me yet!). My first house probably will have a small kitchen (although much larger than my current one). One day when I am done with school....I will have the kitchen others are envious of.. Or at least I hope.
