6. My dream kitchen might have been my last kitchen.
Nothing fancy about it, but perfectly laid out for a single cook. Stove and sink on one wall, fridge a few steps over on the left wall, and an island for extra counter space and a place to eat. It had windows on two walls for light and looked out on my back cottage-style garden. I LOVED that kitchen, I was so damn happy there, and I have never gotten over leaving it. A rule, you shouldn't get your dream kitchen in your starter house. And unfortunately the previous house was small and on a busy street, not appropriate for small children.

I have plans drawn for renovating my current kitchen. My house is large, but cut up into small rooms. I plan to bust out the wall between the oddly shaped and small den and the kitchen, The TV will go upstairs into a large extra bedroom and the former den will become what is trendily know as the "hearth room" or the "keeping room"; A nice space to sit and lounge that is open to the kitchen, but is not really big enough to do much with.

As far as appliances, I was so grateful to be done with cheap electric stove in rental units and to have a decent gas unit. That is all I really aspire to. Although I did see a pretty nice Viking at the re-store the other day, along with a Sub Zero. Hmmmmmm........
