Our first apartment had a very small galley kitchen. You could just barely squeeze by another person in it. But it was all we really needed. Our 2nd kitchen was bigger and we really enjoyed the extra space and the fact that it included a dining area and an island.
Our current kitchen is in between our two past kitchens when it comes to size, with a separate dining area. We don't have as much cupboard or counter space as I would like- some of our dishes and small appliances have to be stored in the basement. I have nowhere to store a broom, my garbage can has to sit in front of a cupboard, because there is no free wall space (I have to move it out of the way with my foot, to get into that cupboard), my counters have chips out of them from previous renters (which I try to hide with strategically placed microwave, toaster oven, and cutting board).
I dream of the day that I can have a large kitchen! I also have a few things I'd like to upgrade if I could.
I've been planning my dream kitchen on Pinterest. It would have lots of hidden space for small appliances and food, and it would look something like this:
