A mudroom is a tack room for humans. A place to store all the boots, scarves, jackets, dog leashes, heavy coats....
I love our Mudroom it is off the laundry room. I just wish
I had a hose and drain on the tile floor to really clean
everyone off. : )

posted by: katieob on 12.04.2009 at 02:57 pm in Kitchens Forum

Hi all.

A huge thank you to everybody on this forum who helped graciously with advice, photos, experience & info. What an incredible resource this is. Shout outs to Erikanh & marthavila for hood help, willowdecor for tile, all the stoners, and many more.

We moved in last week-bottom trim on fridge & dw are still missing, excuse the messy bottoms.

I'll be happy to provide details if anyone wants them.

Thanks for looking!

I read too fast and didn't pay attention. Sorry.
Dark cabs, light maple floors. Got it. Not all the photos
are shaker style but maybe the colors can help you see.
sorry about my earlier post. Too much on the monday
brain. :>)

RE: Where is your pullout garbage? (Follow-Up #8)

posted by: morton5 on 10.15.2009 at 09:22 am in Kitchens Forum

In your situation, I would probably put it next to the sink, and use a garbage bowl, a la Rachel Ray, while I prepped. Or, I would get a pullout with a removable can and put the can next to me while I prepped. I would rather reserve base cabs near the range for cooking pots and utensils.

In my kitchen, I have a dedicated trash pullout base cab in the clean-up area, and trash and recycling pullouts underneath my prep sink. It's great use of the space in a sink cab if you can make it work:

RE: Question on narrow cupboards and waste conatiners (Follow-Up #3)

posted by: circuspeanut on 10.23.2009 at 10:09 am in Kitchens Forum

My trash pullout is 14 years old (I've had it 1.5 years but am using recycled cabinets) and still solid as a rock. I highly recommend the style where the containers hang from a solid wooden shelf the top rather than fit in holes at the bottom; this seems to function more like an inverted drawer, weight-distribution wise. I find it much easier to clean, plus the bins never rock or tip and the liners stay firmly wedged in place.

quick n dirty pics of mine, I took one bin out to see the guts:

In terms of your 10" wide broom cupboard, it is probably more space than you'd imagine, but it's entirely up to you which kind of function (pull-out or cupboard) is more useful to how you work. I have 8" wide rollout bins in that space between fridge and wall and they fit an incredible amount of items. For me, I think hanging large things on a pullout might lend itself to stuff falling off, but that's my inherent impatience and clumsiness. ;-)

Hey cawfeegirl (great handle!) - here are some pics of my Ginger Glaze cabinets. It's a tiny galley kitchen, so hard to get a good angle for photos - my best ones were before the refrigerator was put in place and I could stand inside the fridge box to get pics of the opposite side. ;-)
