Recent finds on Pinterest

Rounding up a few of our recent faves on Pinterest….this week, we were drawn to the way each of these kitchens utilizes glass cabinet doors in the wall cabinets.

The mismatched cabinet hardware is what grabbed us here, but do love the glass cabinets on either side of the sink.

Leaded glass is often thought of as heavy, but has a much lighter look here.

Loving the mirrored drawer fronts to go with the mirrored doors!

Glass cabinets are a great opportunity to add color and show off your collections. Would have been a shame to hide all this behind solid doors!

A home for the microwave

Where oh where to place the microwave….such a handy little guy, allowing dinner to be ready in five minutes flat….definitely deserving of a good spot in the kitchen. A spot that is functional, easy to access, and not necessarily a focal point. So where should it go?!? Here are a few places we have put them…where would you place yours?!

The farm sink

Selecting a kitchen sink is a big deal! The sink has always been the icon of the kitchen, and a very hard worker. Even though must of us aren’t standing at the sink for hours washing dishes anymore, a lot goes on at the sink… it can multi-task from meal prep to baby bath in minutes! Farm sinks- also called farmhouse sinks or apron-front sinks- are a popular choice with timeless appeal. They are also surprisingly versatile and can fit into a wide variety of design styles and budgets.

The classic white farm sink is often made of a material called fireclay. Fireclay sinks are made from a unique clay fired at extremely high temperatures, and they are known for their strength and durability. Scratch resistant and beautiful makes for a great combination.

Stainless steel is another option for a farm sink, and can transition the classically traditional look into a contemporary feel. Stainless steel in general is a popular material choice for kitchen sinks, as it is functional, appealing, and creates a clean look to match stainless steel appliances.

Other materials used for farm sinks include enameled cast iron, copper (see brushed nickel copper sink below), and bamboo.
