Kitchen tour!! Aka Rosa’s room!

The time has come for me to show you my kitchen. I love it because it is quite big (for Portuguese standards, anyway) and so it has enough space for cooking and enough storage.


My toaster corner, with our bread basket right next to it (covered by a pyramid of drying dishes)


Our little coffee and beverage stationย 


Up close


Our fridge (Rui’s plant nursery on top)


A little laundry station (yes, we have our laundry basket in the kitchen, it’s closer to the washing machine and the bathroom is tiny)


Just a rug


The sink + a huge pile of drying dishes


Rosa’s bed and food


Open shelving and bonus dog


Chalk board that Rui says it looks like a 6-year-old write on it (sorry for not having an artsy bone in my body)


The shelves of our beverage unit


My lovely, easy to clean stove


The goodies I got with a super discount today (minus the sunscreen, that shit was expensive)


From the stove corner (where the bathroom door is, I hate that you access the bathroom through the kitchen)






Little decor


From the toaster corner


My big IKEA cutting board (wet, not dirty)


From the fridge corner, where the living room door is


Miss Rosa’s corner, under the window


From the front door (we enter the house through the kitchen)

So, what do you think about it?

I quite like it.

Do you have a big kitchen?

What’s your favorite thing about your kitchen?

    Your kitchen is so well organized ! I love the fact that you have a coffee/beverage station, it looks really nice with the white shelf ! My kitchen is literally as big as the closet I had in my old room at my mother’s house, so I would kill for that much cooking space ๐Ÿ˜„

    It’s so nice to see difference in culture in Kitchen as well. I wish I can snap some pictures at our end, you will either scream or drop your jaw by the size. It’s either extreme!

    Very well organised and utilised the full space in a decent manner. I wish a lot of people at our end, learn to be simple like this.

    Hi Cheila, thank you for the tour. ๐Ÿ™‚ I really appreciate the time and effort you take to share your world with us. I enjoyed touring your kitchen. I think you’ve made good use of the space. I especially liked Rui’s plant nursery, your easy to clean oven, the double sink and the huge cutting board. My kitchen is not big but it’s not too small – it’s just right. I love that I have a lot of counter top space and my refrigerator. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It looks great! It looks so big! Love the colors. Everything has a place:) My favorite part of my kitchen (other than being thankful that I have a kitchen lol) is the island. Great workspace and everyone can fit around it.

    Love it of courseโ˜บ๏ธ
    My favorite part is the coffee and beverage station, that’s pretty creative I think! And your handwriting on the chalkboard does not look like a 6 year old lol it’s actually cute! I think there are fonts like that on websites. Rosa looks lovely ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’•

      Thank you, my dear. Rui is mean!! It’s not art but it doesn’t look so bad lol I’m in love with the coffee and beverage station and I love it even more because the microwave, the coffee machines and such used to be on the counter. We have more counter space now.

    I love everything, but what caught my attention the most was the Chalk board!!! That is an amazing idea! I think I will try it. It looks super cute and I think by writing positive messages every morning can life up the spirit to start out the day fresh. Love your house!

    So cute! I just adore your kitchen sink.

    My kitchen is probably medium sized. It has blue cabinets and white counter tile, with yellow floral wallpaper. It’s kinda different from the standard kitchens I see around here, so I like that it’s a little different.
