More about our kitchen…and dishwashers!

I recently posted about our plans for making some changes in the kitchen.  Well, plans change, and we’ve received so much advice (from our families, and online) about waiting before making any major changes, that we’ve decided to hold off on project “remove annoying hanging cabinets that cut off the kitchen” for a while, until we’ve lived with it for a time and decided whether we can live without the extra storage and/or how much storage we really need.  Once we’ve lived in and cooked in the kitchen, we’ll have a better sense of how truly annoying those cabinets are, or whether they’re something we can live with (at least for now)  Also, we’ve got to save our money for some other projects we have planned, and we don’t want the whole cabinet removal thing to end up resulting in a big mess that will cost a lot to fix (for example, if we end up tearing a giant hole in the drywall or wreck the countertop in our efforts to remove said cabinets).  And, I failed to mention previously that we are also planning on installing a dishwasher as soon as possible, which will cause us to lose even more cabinet space.

Speaking of dishwashers, here is the one we are thinking of getting:

Kenmore dishwasher

It’s currently on sale (but only until Sunday!) which is a plus, and as far as dishwashers go, it seems like a happy medium.  It’s not a fancy stainless steel interior, or expensive brand name, like this Bosch that we would love to get, but it seems like a decent buy, plus, our fridge and stove are Kenmore also, so at least it’ll match!

 

As for the cabinets, while we’ve decided to hold off on tearing anything apart, we are still planning on doing some painting.  I think a nice fresh coat of white paint and some new hardware will do wonders for updating our little old kitchen.  Besides, if we really mess up, we can always tear the cabinets out later…(ha!)
