Onto the kitchens! Here's a double oven. See how narrow it is? Probably 36 inches. I love how there's room between the burners so the pots aren't crowded. The little cabinet to the right is typical of what I see in vintage kitchens around here. In my old house the kitchen was redone a few times before we bought it but I could tell from other homes on my street (with less updated kitchens) that mine probably had this type of cabinet. Much more functional than what was build to replace it.
This kitchen seems to have the original cabinets in which the fronts have been painted blue as an accent. I love the natural light from the big window and the back door. A back door coming right into the kitchen looks convenient for taking out the trash or bringing in groceries but in reality it would mean snowy boots, backpacks, coats, and doggy paw prints strewn in front of the sink for me. Ha ha.
This is my favorite! There was an estate sale at this one and I'm so bummed I missed it. I think we were all sick that weekend. The whole house was beautiful in the real estate listing photos. It needs updating but the character shines thru the old decorating. It's a landmark home so the integrity will be kept but I bet we can say bye bye to the kitchen. The stove looks awesome. Much larger than the typical vintage range.
This is the same kitchen from a different angle. See the doorway in the back? Looks like it's the old service porch that was enclosed and now houses the refrigerator. Not the most convenient but quaint nonetheless. It may serve as a mudroom too. (I say keep the paw prints and kid accouterments contained if you can.) Love the long counter in the back and the cute floral wallpaper. You may have to click on the image to really see the details.
I hope you enjoyed these pictures. I'll be back to posting recipes soon. Between school and soccer season I've been just making basic dinners- nothing exciting to post. But I'll be back!
Edited to add- I found another kitchen. Well just a picture of the stove in an estate sale listing. Pretty cool!!
