Kitchen Planning

When I was thinking about the layout of my kitchen, I wanted to try and incorporate as many features as I could that would make the most out of my space. (I like everything to be tucked away).

Magazines and kitchen design books were a really great way to get good ideas. I especially liked the idea of having a chopping block that sits over the garbage, so I can just scrape the unwanted scraps right in.

Colin even took part in the planning by making sure I could just press on the front of the drawer and it will pop right out, which is really handy if my hands are full. Then, when I’m done, I can just push the chopping block and garbage right back in, and out of the way.

The chopping block is great for chopping that involves skins or trimmings that need to be thrown out. And when I’m chopping things like nuts, I usually just do that right on the counters.

I’m really pleased with my counters, which are quartz (by Zodiaq). They truly seem to be bomb proof. They don’t stain, scratch, etch, or scorch and that’s such a relief for me because I don’t want to be the mom who’s constantly freaking out about that sort of thing.

Post Edits: Yes, I compost. There are two bins in that drawer. One for garbage and one for compost.
