Hi, I’m Whitney Richardson with Country’s Best Cabins magazine, here to talk to you about our October Issue in which we feature one of the favorite areas of the cabin: the kitchen. The kitchen is a great place for entertaining family, friends and other guests, but it can be a little bit tricky when you have a smaller area like a cabin.
So we’ve taken our Good Design department to provide you with some great small design tips that will help you not only make the space more functional but also live larger through different color considerations and design options.
One of the ways to make your kitchen more efficient is through the use of under-cabinet lighting, which can provide task-specific illumination from everything to prep work to cleanup. We list a step-by-step instruction tutorial in our How To department for a simple plug-in application that you can do on your own.
One of the basic functionality elements that any kitchens needs is the appliances. So we have also compiled a tutorial on basic appliances and fixtures you are likely to consider not only for space considerations but also for how you plan to use your kitchen in our kitchen outfitting feature.
Do not just take our word for it, though. Each of the homeowners in our home tours that we feature in each issue have also supplied us with their thought process behind creating their own open, entertaining kitchen within their cabins.
In addition to some great kitchen ideas, we also feature decorating advice on how to infuse your home with some homespun appeal through Americana and Primitive decor, as well as how to increase the exterior appeal of your cabin through the use of vines.
To complement our cabin building ideas, we’ve also created an aptly titled “Life at the Cabin” section, which is available to download on our website, CountrysBestCabins.com. In it, we feature a fun fall craft, great destination for your next outdoor adventure. We also provide cabin style tips that will withstand your adventurous lifestyle as well as good small-home design principle that will make your cabin feel cozy and practical.
Be sure to check out our Facebook page for more up-to-date information between each issue, as well to share some fun cabin stories of your own. We love to hear from our readers. We hope you visit us soon.
