Welcome to my kitchen!

This video is long overdue. I’ve designed quite a few kitchens in my career but I was most challenged when I needed a change in my own kitchen. It was 2015 and we’d just moved into a new home so a full renovation was not in the cards. I made a lot of small changes with big impact.

Then last year after I made 1 big change, I asked on Instagram if a full tour of my kitchen showing the practical & budget friendly kitchen design tips I used would be helpful & the answer was 100% YES.

  1. I rent my apartment. The kitchen floor is probably some kind of linoleum? It is old and stained etc. my landlord does not want to fix it. Do you know about linoleum rugs ?
    Or any other solution

    1. That’s an excellent question Susan! Linoleum rugs are a good option for covering parts of the floor, just like a standard rug. A few other options are temporary interlocking tiles and peel & stick tiles. These are great because they are sturdy, long lasting & removeable. Check out this post where I even used peel & stick tiles on a fireplace. They are very versatile.
