The title of this Ideabook really should be "How to Design a Pull-Out Spice Rack into Your New Kitchen." This is not a DIY project, apparently.

I don't think I agonized over anything more that what floor to put in our new kitchen. The house is 100 years old and I refinished all the old floors. Most flooring options require a thicker subfloor than I wanted to lay because I hate those transitions in floor height from one room to another. I didn't want vinyl which would have worked with a 1/4" subfloor, it just would have looked too "new." After seeing some posts about penny floors, I decided that I HAD to have one. I would say the time spent to glue down 40,000 pennies was harder on my joints than the floor has been. I still need to epoxy it, but 3 coats of poly has created a very tough surface for now. Just don't drop change on the floor because it becomes invisible.

Here is a pic of the kitchen/floor under construction.

I loved the shape of this stainless steel water feature and thought it would easily double as a sculpture for our tiny garden. Living in Britain where it rains so much, I knew we wouldn't let the water run all the time, that's why finding something with an interesting shape was important.

The seller assured us that the water feature is made out of high quality brushed stainless steel - extremely resistant to corrosion. So far so good, no sign of rust in the 10 months since we bought it, although those 3 squarish plates I added 2 months ago are already ruined!

Regarding windows without window treatments, I love windows without window treatments where there is no privacy or sun exposure issue. So that's something that some of us absolutely loathe and others like.

Love this kitchen. It is a great homage to the original purpose of the building and very well executed. The layout is fine, but I too question the use of the double ovens for someone for whom they are not a "necessity". I would have gone with a single wall oven with a built in microwave on top as the microwave is probably well used, and it would be more convenient above the wall oven than below the counter to the right of the cooktop where it also takes up valuable space. Enough nitpicking from me. It took a lot of guts, and they achieved their goal in spades. It looks great and I am sure it would appeal to anyone in the market for a loft.
