Brighten up your kitchen work space with clean white cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and white subway tiles. A neutral wall color and floor tiles tie the room together with small bursts of color from the flatware and utensils.
Waste not, want not: Instead of heading to the lumber yard, more and more furniture designers are looking to the past for their materials. This Reclaimed Wood Kitchen Island, $475, from Herb’s Furnishings is one great example. Handcrafted of 100% reclaimed wood from Baltimore, Md., the island’s frame is crafted from old beams, and its shelves are reclaimed pine paneling. The butcher's block top is made of reclaimed hardwood flooring, which is sealed with food-safe mineral oil and beeswax. The island sits on leveling stems to ensure a flat cutting surface, and it includes a steel bar with S hooks for hanging pots and other utensils.
After an afternoon in the sun, guests can head towards the kitchen to refuel. Here, light wood cabinets keep plates and utensils within easy reach, while a long counter with five wicker stools invites everyone to take a seat.
Looking for a pretty place to stash small kitchen items or herbs? Create cute, custom utensil holders with a few recycled tin cans. Spray paint and craft tape will gussy them up, and S-hooks will keep them hanging in place on a towel bar.
With only 162 square feet of available space, every inch of this kitchen was used. Six inches on both sides of the range, which might have been considered negligible in a larger kitchen, were topped with marble and used for a pull-out spice drawer on one side and utensil storage on the other.
Most owners on RVshare stock their rentals with basics like RV-safe toilet paper and basic kitchen utensils. Our Winnie also came with towels, bedding and even a small charcoal grill, so all we had to bring were our clothes, food and toiletries. There were a few extra items that made our trip more comfortable: Dramamine (at highway speeds, the back of a motorhome can sway like a boat); ear plugs (in case of snoring family members or loud neighbors); and air freshener—even a newer RV like the one we drove, the bathroom can generate funky smells after you flush or when the waste tanks get full. We also fell in love with a pair of Vaya Drynk travel mugs that literally kept our coffees hot for six to eight hours—having hot java at our fingertips was an unexpected luxury.
