Morning kitchen? Who knew. I don't love the look. It's a little too masculine and hotel-y for me, but I kind like the idea of waking up and not having to go downstairs to get the first cup of coffee.
Doesn't do anything for me. In fact, it gives me the creeps. There is such a thing as too pampered.
Now this screams Orange County (CA). What, between shopping, tennis lessons, lunch with the ladies, doing the pool boy...I can't be bothered, nor do I have the time, to go downstairs to make my morning coffee.
I stayed in a B&B that had one and fell in love. I've been begging my husband to include one in our upstairs remodel. It's amazing for super busy workday mornings, lazy Sunday mornings with the newspaper, and late nights with my sweetie in bed with snacks and wine just steps away from our love nest.
Love Nest??? Anon: 7:13 isn't married!!
Today I toured a new construction house that had a walk-in closet (the size of my living room) featuring it's own stacked washer and dryer. I couldn't help but think "whoever buys this home will loathe their family enough to love the idea of not mixing their washables." I get the feeling the morning kitchen is in the same suit.
the scary thing about these "morning kitchens" is that bad attempts by design-on-a-dimers will only end up looking like that insipid nook in your dorm room where the mini fridge and hot plate lived (and that which motivates all of us to move OUT of the dorm). if you can afford the one in the picture, you can probably afford a butler.
the details aren't for me on this one however i like the idea. but i think i like the routine of walking into my kitchen, turning on the kettle and preparing a lovely cup of tea. not having to get out of the bed to do all of that might be nice when feeling under the weather but not really necessary for me on a regular basis.
I'm enjoying all the class anxiety in these comments: "I wouldn't even WANT all this convenience and comfort. Inconvenience is invigorating! These people probably hate their families! Capitalist pigs. I bet Halliburton is behind this..."
unless you have a bunch of kids and want to hole up in the master bedroom on occasion, I don't see the point
There IS no such thing as "being too pampered", IS THERE??? We have a similar set-up (no butler, thank you very much!)~~~ I don't drink coffee, so my DH has a 2-cupper, & when he's going off, there's a fresh pot that started brewing in the kitchen when we got up, so he can refresh his coffee. Gee, I don't feel "guilty" at all ~~~ It's nice, just as it is to have wine n' cheese in that fridge too, if that floats your boat! And our dressing room/closet DOES have a washer & dryer ~ NOT for "snobbism" (who else really goes in there?!), but for convenience for underwear, etc. We think we've EARNED the joy in living well ~ and it's "just us" here, anyway!
