Make your Coffee Maker Earn its Place in the Kitchen

There are two coffee pots, a French Press, and a thingy that boils water sitting on my counter. They're not mine. I would put a toaster there, and maybe some nice dirty dishes, because I am the only graduate student in North America who doesn't drink coffee. Ever. For any reason. I get that I'm in the minority here, and I'm okay with that. My theory is, if the first thing you want to see every mor...

Emulate the Elegant Old World Charm of a French Country Kitchen

My sister just bought a house (success!) but hates the French Country style cabinets. How this is possible for a woman who grew up on the same farm as me, can't get enough of baguettes, and otherwise has good taste, I don't know.

The Best Major Appliances and Lighting for French Country Kitchens and More

When you're doing a kitchen remodel, always budget cash and space for your major appliances. You'll need a fair amount of both, but then without appliances like a kitchen range, oven hood, dishwasher, and microwave,  it wouldn't be much of a kitchen. You're also gonna hurt yourself cooking in the dark and squinting at recipes, so plan for the perfect lighting. Now, remember this? French ...

Victorian Kitchen Design Remodeling for Romantics (and their Practical Friends)

Victorian design sounds romantic, and I think of an ornate armchair (full of tall, dark, and handsome). But despite some fancy detailing on the woodwork, Victorian kitchens are actually utilitarian. They are traditionally simple spaces with open shelves in natural colors. A large, central table takes the place of countertops, and all the dishes and utensils are visible to work with. To see what Vi...
