My kitchen needs help !! I live in the house I grew up in. I am the one in our family that hosts the birthdays and holidays. I love to cook and entertain, but I would like a more modern space ... I can picture my new kitchen having IKEA cabinets, countertops, appliances, flooring and lighting. I would like to totally re-do the space. My plan is to have the refrigerator, stove and microwave moved to open up the wall that goes into my living room. I would like to put at breakfast bar in that space, as well as an island in the middle of the room. On the side where the sink is, I would like to put the refrigerator and also add a tall pantry to store groceries. Where the stovetop is I'd put the microwave right above it and put in a stove/oven combination. When I go to IKEA I am amazed at all the beautiful room ideas they have. I have the Billy bookcases in my living room, as well as a couple of pieces in my bedroom. It would be wonderful to have a new kitchen from IKEA !!!
