Peeking back into the start of summer 2010...We wanted to repost our Top 3 WORST Kitchen Trends, as we think they are still pertinent a year later. We also couldn't help adding some of the "Worst Kitchens in America" from CBS' Early Show. Though many of us may be wishing for a kitchen remodel - especially with the kids spending more time at home this summer - at least we can be thankful we don't have one of these kitchens! (But, if you do, you may want to keep our number handy!)
"We really enjoyed the blog by Jamie Goldberg on Kitchens.com where she lists granite countertops, travertine floors, industrial style faucets and french door refrigerators as among her least favorite kitchen products! We thought we could add to this list of kitchen trends gone wrong and we bet you can too..."
- Bigger Is Not Always Better
We know kitchens are some of our most "lived in" spaces. They are where the party always ends up and where we spend a lot of our family time. But when you have to send text messages from the table to talk to someone by the refrigerator - you've gone too far. Kitchens should be properly sized based on the size of your home and your family. Kitchens sell homes - but maxing out the size of your kitchen at the expense of the rest of your house is defeating the purpose!
