Kitchen Decorating

I think we all would love to have the perfect kitchen. I have been trying to sell my house for 15 months now, and the agony of waiting for my new house and kitchen is almost unbearable at times.
I love to think about how I would decorate, what colors will be best for my mental well-being, will I get new dishes. Will there be a bar with
counter stools , and if so what style do I like.

I've also been thinking about if I want to keep the dishes I have now and if I'll have room for all of my mixing bowls and small appliances. Down-sizing is difficult -- what to save and what to part with.

I know one thing for sure. I definitely need a new chopping board or two. I began researching all the different types -- hard maple for vegetables, glass for meats, rubber or plastic.

I finally came across one that really interests me. It's made of bamboo! It is supposed to be as strong and durable as hardwood but since bamboo is actually a grass and grows really fast it's considered to be eco-friendly.
I have one on order now, and I can't wait for it to arrive. After a test run, I will give you an update on what I think of it. Let me know if you have tried one of these also. I'm curious to now what you think of it.

Hi, I found you via Blotanical. Loved the post! I love bamboo too. I actually use bamboo fabric more than bamboo in its wooden configuration. And while it is one of the eco-friendliest woods out there, the working conditions of the labourers harvesting the bamboo and manufacturing it isn't always the best. Also, much bamboo products come from China where there aren't stringent environmental laws so nasty chemical runoff ends up in the water.

Google bamboo for more info.

All that said. I am still a fan and you will be too!!
