Refined MidcenturyTransitional Kitchen, Seattle
What Houzz contributors are saying:
A poppy-red Dutch door provides access to the deck. “It’s better to do the riskier things less expensively,” she says. She can always paint the door another color down the line if she wants a new look, whereas something like a bold backsplash would be more involved and expensive to replace. To the right of the door is a coffee and tea station. She placed it out of the way of the main work zone so that there would be no more bumping into each other. The drawers are just the right size for supplies like coffee filters and tea bags.
2. Many Americans swear by their drip brews. Thanks to a childhood of watching American movies, I grew up longing to visit an American diner and order a cup of filter coffee (and a stack of pancakes to go with it). When I finally visited a New York diner and was offered free filter coffee refills, it made my day. But it seems this isn’t just something you see in the movies. Americans really do prefer filter coffee made in a drip coffee machine at home. More than a third of all Americans polled said this was how they made their coffee. As U.S. Houzzer Jbsilver says, “I’ll take a drip coffee maker any day. I want to smell my coffee brewing, not just when I put the cup up to my mouth or after it’s ready. That first whiff is just as good as the first sip for me.”
