Right now, as I write this, my husband is visiting Spain (for business, mind you, so he's not having any fun, wink wink). And here I sit armchair traveling, avoiding the 100-plus-degree weather here at home (I'm not bitter). Today, he sent photos from Casa Mila. It got me wondering: is the kitchen, too, a whimsical, anthropomorphic space in the designs of famous architect Antoni Gaudi? Here's what I turned up:
I hinted earlier this spring that I might be headed into a kitchen renovation, and sure enough, we are in the depths of kitchen planning right now! We've moved past the basic layout, and the budget (see our readers' real-life stories of how much they spent on kitchen remodeling), and now we're thinking about finishes. Personally, I'm almost settled on wood cabinets and some kind of white countertop (quartz? white granite? marble?). I love this look, and I wanted to share some of my favorite pieces of inspiration with you. Here are 10 lovely white and wood kitchens.

Stephanie and Jon had wanted to redo the kitchen in their 680-square-foot Madison home for 18 years. They knew the space was sad; as it was, there was little storage and workspace, cabinet doors didn't close, and the room lacked any and all personality. Then they saw that, thanks to a grant, a local green-building consulting firm was offering design plans at a discount. The result: a kitchen with improved functionality and a look as fresh as a blue sky on a sunny day.
Q: My husband and I are moving into a rental apartment with a much smaller kitchen. We'll have to store many of our appliances in cabinets or another room as the counter space is very limited! What are some ways I can maximize the space we do have and avoid clutter? Thank you!
Seeing this GRUNDTAL wall shelf in a house tour today at Apartment Therapy, I realized how ubiquitous and useful this particular product is. There are a few products like this that show up over and over again in kitchens, products that are inexpensive and infinitely useful. Let's take a closer look, shall we?
Calling all small-kitchen cooks! Inquiring minds want to know: what's your favorite pry-it-from-your-cold-dead-fingers multi-tasking specialty tool or gadget? We don't mean basic workhorses like the wooden spoon or cast iron skillet. We mean those not-totally-essential-but-still-really-useful-things that make cooking easier, faster, or more enjoyable.
