  1. Great before and after pictures. Everything looks so streamline now.
    Ahhh…The Kitchen Aid mixer! Everyone has one, most never use it more than once per year, and yet its out on every counter top taking up space and always getting in the way….

      Hi Bernie–I bought mine when I started cooking professionally and used it several times per day five days per week for a long time. But I wouldn’t recommend it for everyone because of the space it takes up and it’s heavy and expensive. It won’t be long before I’ll have forgotten how to use the darn thing….

  2. Bernie is right, those pictures are inspiring. I helped my mother declutter her kitchen recently and the changes it has made has been astounding. The whole house feels so much more peaceful and everyone enjoys cooking in it. Great work!

      Thanks, Scott, and thanks for the mention on your blog 🙂 Good on you for helping your mum get the kitchen under control–the kitchen is the hub of the house and it really does set the tone, even if it is not as visible from the rest of the house like mine is.

  3. wow your kitchen looks GREAT! I love the clean and bright space!

      Thanks, Jenny–any kitchen will look a hundred times better when it’s been decluttered. I hope everyone gives their kitchen the decluttering treatment before doing expensive remodeling, it’s a real eye-opener.

    The decluttering is simple and beautiful, peaceful too! You wrote that you have a super-easy-to-clean range and oven, and I’m wondering the brand. Mine is on its way out and has always been complicated and difficult to clean. Looking for ideas…

      Hi Judy–mine is a Kenmore slide-in with a smooth ceramic cooktop and self-cleaning oven. I found it at a local resale shop for–please don’t hate me–$50. I just needed a new cord, which I got at a home center for less than $15. I don’t know how old it is, but it was like new when I bought it for my cookery. Gas ranges to cook more accurately, but I’ve gotten used to the electric burners and the smooth top and I don’t think I’ll ever willingly go back to the messy cleanup ranges! Just got done looking for a similar model online at Sears, and they seem to be in the $1200 range. Yikes!

  5. I love how serene your kitchen feels. It is like a slice of heaven!!

    I would love to declutter my own kitchen a bit and was wondering where you put things like your loaf of bread, your bananas, onions/garlic, clementines (oh, maybe just hypotheticals or maybe exactly what is out on my counters so that my kids and hubby and self SEE it and eat it). We have a teeny tiny pantry which is filled with spices, oils, vinegar, dried beans/lentils, cans of tomatoes and artichokes, etc. so I’m trying to see how I can make this happen (or at least get closer to it) in our kitchen. My bread dough mixer (a heavy-duty Electrolux DLX for mixing whole wheat breads) and Vita-Mix are also out on the counter because they won’t fit in any of my cabinets. :-/
