Everyone has their own style when it comes down to how they want their kitchen to look. Some like it fancy, and some prefer them with a clean un-cluttered look (nothing at all on the counter-tops). My ideal kitchen is organized with everything right at hand. I like a kitchen to feel like a kitchen; functioning like someone actually cooks here! And I'm all about cozy; with things on counters and shelves. To me, a kitchen doesn't have to be fancy schmancy. I actually prefer it more casual - kind of country cottage like!
