In the dining room, the light switch and thermostat appear to have the wallpaper pattern continue over them. Has this been painted on or did they actually manager to paper tem?

I have been looking for some OUTDOOR barstools for a while now and having trouble. The BBQ island top sits at 39" with the bottom of the tile edge at 36". An awkward height combined with exposure to the elements. I imagine adjustable height seat mechanisms having a very short life here in AZ sun. And why do these seats cost so dang much? I think for now I will just take my kitchen bar chairs outside when the occasion calls for seating.

Honestly, I think it's just semantics...an attempt to transition one phrase into the other. After reading the houzz article describing 'work zones', it could just as easily describe my 'work triangle' kitchen. I Dishwasher & trash next to sink, check. Landing areas next to major appliances: check. Large island to keep guests a bay: check.....

I live in a small town filled with older homes. I know few people who upgrade their kitchens to look like the glam-fabulous photos here on houzz. Most people I know don't ever get around to kitchen remodeling and just make do with the old.

Another thing: I read that kitchens have come a long way because all the architects used to be all men and they seldom spent time in a kitchen, therefore kitchens weren't 'user friendly'. Once women came on to the scene, their input helped kitchens evolve into rooms that function well and are family gathering places.

I don't have time to read all the other comments, so maybe someone has already said this, but I think it's a good idea to have the sink and the cooktop/range on the same run of cabinets, so that they are not separated by a walkway. This makes prep and cleanup easier and safer, since no one can walk between the chef and the sink while the chef is trying to drain pasta.
