When designing my kitchen the first thing that I think about is functionality. I want my kitchen to be family friendly, party friendly and obviously cooking friendly!!! SO I am going to take you on a tour of my new Ikea Sektion Kitchen!!! This kitchen has my name written all over it from every little detail…the colour of the cabinets, the hard wear and definitely the countertops!!! It’s romantic, flirty, feminine, classic, but it still can host a FUN party…which of course I love!!
I decided to put some of my cabinets directly on the countertop like you would have seen hundreds of years ago in an old European home…I love this idea mainly because it allows you to go up higher and there is no wasted space for storage!!! These cabinets make a perfect appliance garage or easy access for every day items. It lowers your shelving making everything eye level and easy to reach for everyone!!! Underneath I chose to do two single shallow drawers instead of one giant drawer so that everything is more organized and easier to find. One thing in my kitchen that is not going anywhere is my lazy susan…which I call the lazy Jillian!!! It makes everything so much easier to put everything away and take out. One of my favourite features in my kitchen is the Ikea farmhouse sink. I use these as much as possible in all of my projects. They are homey and give the feeling of memories and a nod to the past. This feature instantly transform my kitchen into a happy space from morning to night. It can easily be prepared for any party, that’s why my kitchen has a specific party closet!!!! Just wait until you see my wine storage…..what’s good food without good wine!?!?
One of the main features that I LOVE about my Ikea Sektion kitchen is the drawers inside drawers. I used to find ways to section of my cupboards and drawers by using tupperwear containers or other storage containers to create sections for storing things. NOW the Ikea Sektion Kitchen comes with the sections built right in, they are removable and adjustable so you can change them around as much as you want!!! This makes it easy to store your dishes in drawers so that no reaching or looking is necessary! I’ve even included a pull out rawer under the sink for my garbage and recycling so that it’s easier to access everything at the back. I am a HUGE believer in doing ALL drawers NOT doors in your kitchen. This makes organization so simple and easy to access every item in the cupboard simply by pulling it out.
Well…what do you think!?!?! Do you want to come over and join me for a party in my Ikea Sektion Kitchen!?!?!
