NB: I didn't pick up before taking these pictures. Yes, I know I have too much stuff out. Yes, we need to purge. I'm trying to figure out how to get there from here.
First a little spin around the kitchen while standing in the middle of it. I stood in one spot and just took pictures in a clockwise circle.
Here are two pictures from either end. One is taken standing right in front of the garage door and the other is my regular view from the supper table.
Here's where it starts getting real. This is what the inside of our pantry looks like. For real.
Kroger had a fantastic sale on Delallo products, as you can see.
The top of the fridge is just piled. Something could be done up there, but what?
The inside of the only cabinet that isn't just dishes and glasses. Honestly, we have too many cups and mugs and plates, but I don't know how many to keep. What if you need it, ya know?
This cabinet is where I want to mount a solid magazine rack for storing devices. However the rack would need to be eleven inches wide at maximum (unavailable at Target). The bookshelf under this spot sits on top of a vent so we have to be careful what we place here. Also that wallspace there is less than two feet wide.
This is the only spot I can figure to add a magnet for knives, and it is only fourteen inches wide. This is over the drying rack.
This is another possibility for mounting something, but there is a lot going on in this spot. It is the main place for unloading the fridge and pouring drinks and where the toaster is. So I don't know.
Here is where I want to put a hook for Dave's cast iron egg pan. It get used every single day so doesn't really need put away, but it would be good to have a place to stick it that isn't on the stove or the countertops because it gets in the way when trying to cook other things.
Here is the other cabinet on the other side of the sink. It's full of mugs. I'm not sure what can be done with it.
The other side of the mug cabinet is the busiest spot in the house so I don't want to add anything that might further frustrate traffic there.
Another spot that could be arranged differently if I can find another spot in the house to put this table. Finding another spot for the table is questionable without getting rid of furniture, but I don't want to discount the possibility. This is the back corner in the kitchen behind the table. It is not very accessible and tends to get piled, as you can see.
So there it is. That's our kitchen. What do you think? Throw out your ideas.
