The Kitchen Design

The kitchen has been the most time intensive and the place I have devoted the most energy.  I have some experience designing and thinking about cooking in the kitchen both here in the US and in Italy.  The kitchen designer is located in Genova and had indulged me through many proposals and changes.  My goal has always been to have a highly functional, near professional kitchen.  This requires lots of counter space and cabinet storage.  Here are some of the elements included:

·      Large double sink with garbage disposal (rare in Italy)

·      Built in microwave

·      High quality convection oven (it is a standard size for Italy, but smaller by US standards)      

·      Warming drawer that has a cold setting and is programmable

·      Quiet dishwasher

·      Five-burner gas cooktop

·      Double stacked cabinets to the ceiling (not easily reached, but plenty of storage)
