329 - 20 Steps to the Perfect Kitchen Part 1

If there is one room in the house that I love buying things for more than anything it's the kitchen! If I ever go charity shop shop, or pop into Ikea, chances are I'm coming out with something for the kitchen. I just love it!

Right now we have quite a small kitchen, which doesn't have the biggest amount of space and is lacking in a window (though we do have a sky light).

Lately I've been dreaming what I would be like to have my own house, that we actually owned, and I know the room I would make amazing would be the kitchen! Trying to decide what to post about kitchen lust wise was quite hard, as there is so much out there! So I thought I would break it down into a series! Some will be crafty things and some will just be lovely kitchen things. I'm going to do 5 sections per post, and only allow myself 5 pictures per section, or I could literally go on for hours!

So for the next few Wednesdays, we'll be looking at my 20 steps to the perfect kitchen. A girl can but dream!

Step 1: Cute pictures on the wall.

Step 2: Cute fabrics!

Things like tea towels, tea cozies, pot holders and the like should all be ridiculously cute and if possible have a food/kitchen theme!

Step 3: Place settings.

We don't use our table very much right now, because we are lazy. There is no other reason for it. Sitting on the couch seems a lot easier than laying the table (and setting ours up as it folds away). I dream of having a kitchen big enough to be set up all the time, and I would love to have different things to put on it depending on the occasion (especially Christmas!).

Step 4: Shopping.

Going food shopping is obviously an important task to keep the kitchen running. Having some awesome shopping bags is a must, and I always take my bags for life to the supermarket.

Step 5: Fake food.

This may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I like having fake food around the kitchen. Right now I have some little crochet cakes on my recipe book shelf, but I would love to add more to the collection. Fake food, especially if it has a face, is a must!
