    I can’t even begin to explain how much I appreciate the “practical” progress of organization. Understanding a space and creating functionality is equally as pretty-to me-as traditional decorating. Needless to say, I’m looking forward to seeing how you guys make the space work for you as you live in it more!

      I think so too! I caught a glimpse of her stove and it reminded me of that gorgeous piece of art/stove she left in the cottage. Should we take a poll on how quickly she orders another for L.A. my vote is it’s already been ordered 🤷‍♀️

    Figuring out your kitchen in a new house is a game of “let’s see how this works”. It’s completely different from when you reno a kitchen to work for you(which we just did). I am loving watch you unpack and decorate this new house and beyond excited for the podcast!! More Macenna works for me

    For a temp solution, on Amazon they have these little circle stickers that are raised like bumps. You put them in the corners on the inside of drawers and cabinets so when you close them it makes it a lot quieter! Instead of the wood hitting wood when they close it’s wood hitting the little bump stickers and it made a big difference in our kitchen for noise! Also a lil WD-40 on the hinges I believe would help with some squeakiness!

    what are your thoughts on romeo’s office being downstairs with the laundry machine and the primary bedroom being in the current guest room? it seems to make more sense and be more private. maybe since that room is so large it could eventually be renovated to have an on suite bathroom! 🤍

    MaCenna getting a new house is like when your fav tv show launches a new season 🥳
    I was thinking the "breakfast nook" space you weren't sure what to do with may be a good spot to put a stand alone pantry situation. Like a wardrobe but for your kitchen?

    This is so fun, watching you settle into your new house! Congratulations on the purchase.
    Since you don't really have anything much to go in the 'front' living room area, maybe it would be nice to set up your dining room there. Then when you reno the kitchen, you could take out the wall between the existing kitchen and that dining area back there, and make one large kitchen with a nice over-sized island and a walk-in pantry. It would probably still leave lots of room for a small breakfast nook at the windows overlooking the backyard/pool. Just a thought.

      I live in a small cottage with very little space and no storage. My appliances are all kept in an antique cabinet in my living room right by the kitchen door. It’s so close it makes zero difference and I don’t have them cluttering up the place. Now if I can just figure out a way to keep all my decor pieces without looking like I have 3 times the amount I need I’ll be good. 🤣 I’m no minimalist that’s for sure.

    I’ve owned several older homes with original cabinets and they were all small. My hat off to the women who cooked everything from scratch back then and dealt with those cabinets. Maybe on one of those empty walls you get an old fashion floor to ceiling cupboard or armoire. But what ever you do will look awesome. I love going through the move- in process with you. Can’t wait for your Momma to visit. 💕

    When you do remodel the kitchen, open it up to the dining room and incorporate a larger space with island seating, lots of storage. Your living room is large enough to fit a dining table, just move the sofa closer to the fireplace. Or use the front room as foyer/ dining because how often do you use a formal dining room? It could hold a big table with flower vase and books that converts to dining.

    I’m a home organizer for 27 years. When you have multiple of anything:cereal boxes etc. instead of stacking the boxes next to each other as MaCenna place then. Instead put 2nd (or newer box) begin the one in front as you would put soda cans in the fridge. It gives you more visibility & you’ll know what you have & how many. If your knife rack is shifting fold a old kitchen towel & place it in the back of the drawer to brace it.

    I’ve been living in my house for 4 years and I am still moving things around my kitchen. We built in a pantry and that definitely helped with keeping all the dried foods in one place and things like that.
    Do not stress too much MaCenna, with time you will find the perfect place for everything. It’s putting way too much on yourself finding a place for all the things right now. See what I did there? 😅

    I think it would be a great idea to use that small room you said was the dining room as a pantry/coffee bar/storage room. You could make it really pretty and functional. Then use your formal living room as the dining room. Just a thought. Love your videos and thanks for sharing with us!!

    The best advice I’ve heard for organizing your kitchen is to imagine you are cooking a meal and think about where to put things so the process goes smoothly. Also, use lazy Susans and shelf risers to maximize the use of your cupboard space. I’d give serious thought to getting a freestanding pantry cupboard to put against that blank wall. It will give you lots more storage space, which you will need when you grow your family.

    If you have empty wall space, perhaps you can do plate rails for your plates to save room in your cabinets! Like Gwyneth Paltrow did in her kitchen in her AD tour! I also really like the idea of hanging your cutting boards. Very European.

    We also just bought a home in SoCal in September and I swear I am still rearranging my kitchen as I learn what's working or not. I like your idea of turning that shallow cabinet into a dry good pantry. I bet you could thrift (or make!) a china cabinet or hutch and put it in that "dead space" you were worried about between the outside door and entryway to the dining room. Two birds, one stone, etc

Im not sure if this would work with the lay out of the house but was thinking that when you redo the kitchen it could be more practical to have the narrow dining room space as a walk in pantry and the more formal living room could be the dining room!

    I like the idea of using that shallow cupboard as a dry goods pantry space. That or a spice cabinet (yes, my spices could probably mostly fill that thing).

    It's beautiful, MaCenna! That was a long day and a mentally exhausting one! It's a lot of mental arranging and then rearranging.
    I've been putting off redoing the kitchen where I am for literally a couple of years! It's a big kitchen and an overwhelming thought to empty it all out... My previous kitchen was much like yours so I think I just expanded into the extra space a little too much! But you've given me some motivation! I wonder how many of us will be rearranging our kitchens now?! 😂

    Loving this series! I would consider: making the dining room into a pantry/storage room, and make the formal living room at the front entrance of the house into the dining room. It creates storage for larger appliances, food, boxes, dog food, baby food, etc. and is highly functional.

    I think someone commented on it last video, but Tuscan or Spanish villa style would really suit the house more so than French provincial. It feels more cottage like than your other house, and you can always have some influence in areas if you wish.

    best place for those lids is drawer at the bottom of stove. The pot will be on the stove when you need a lid. Dont forget your oven for large glass baking dishes, muffin pans, etc. Love how cute that Kinsley is!!! Not uncommon to store small appliances on a stand alone shelf. I put spices on the inside of a door on a tier of wire shelving I found on the internet. I am amazed at how many kitchens lack a pantry.

    Just a couple suggestions with the organization-- I would move Kinsley's stuff to maybe a cabinet or dresser somewhere like in the guest room or Romeo's office since real estate is limited in the kitchen! I'd also try and put the lid for the pots and pans elsewhere, I feel like that big drawer just for lids is a missed opportunity! Not sure if there is room for a hutch or kind of island with storage off to the side under the windows, but might be a good option to fill in that space, add some extra storage & of course bring in a piece of vintage furniture!

    I do love a practical kitchen, I.e holds everything you need and more! You will find the flow of the kitchen, making it easier to know which cupboards to put what in. When I redesigned my kitchen I had an idea of everything I needed from it and where all my items would go. It made so much difference being able to sign off knowing we had what we needed and 4 years later I still love it.

    As someone that cooks, it’s a bit easier to have your spices where you can see them. I noticed you didn’t have much in the cabinet to the left of the stove. Maybe invest in a spice riser and put them there so you can see them all. I know you do hello fresh a lot but maybe for those meals you do cook? I LOVE the idea of the cutting boards on the wall for decor and then it becomes pretty and practical to store them! ❤

    The big drawer under the cabinet that you put your pots and pans in would be good for some of your small appliances that you use most often. I would definitely keep an eye out for a sideboard to be placed under the windows in the breakfast nook. It would give you more dish storage. Not sure where you plan to put your designated eating space, but it might look kind of neat in that first room you walk into at the front. Not sure how many steps that is from the kitchen. 🤷🏼‍♀️❤️😊

    LOVE the French provincial style. It’s my favorite. I could absolutely see you doing some of that in your new home. ❤️❤️

    Paint the inside of your cabinets with white or light color so you can see things more clearly. Love, love this house. I have the bamboo knife drawer organizer. So much better than the knife block on the counter. So glad you are using shelf paper. Now days people have skipped this and it’s just not sanitary 😊

    A new subscriber here. I found you on your pack and moving vlogs. So exciting to be at the beginning of your new adventure as home owners. Can't wait to see how you decorate. Wishing you much joy as you settled into your new home.

    I love your logic regarding how you packing the kitchen. Functional and practical. I would do what you mentioned at the end with the dry goods in jars, and in that larger cabinet next to the range hood I’ll do plates and the bowls ( plates at the top and bowls at the bottom). This would free more space for pantry items on the other side. So where you have the plates you can still do oils and taller cooking things and now it would be next to the other pantry things. I’m sure once you get your dinning room sorted you will add a server (china cabinet) to put your fancy dishes and glasses.
    I’m excited for you and it’s all coming together.
    Good luck and hope you guys have a wonderful week

    I’m childishly proud that “my” MaCenna bought ON sneakers. I’m from Zurich in Switzerland, where they were created. It’s also a company with a great philosophy.
    Btw, these are poultry shears. To cut off wings and legs and open the ribs. Very helpful when butterflying a chicken, or after cooking to portion the meat. They cut through the bones very well.

    McCenna, I can't thank you enough for sharing your homes, renovations, organizing, and decorating. I greatly appreciate you trying to be frugal by going to estate sales, thrift stores, and flea markets. Being on a very limited income, I live vicariously through you and your beautiful lifestyle. My house is very traditional, but I have learned so much about decorating from watching you. I am in love with your new house. I can't wait to see the cottage finished. Please continue to give basic but honest decorating suggestions and how-to's. Thanks again for allowing us in your home.

    CONGRATULATIONS on the house! I'm so happy for you both! How does Kinsley like it? Was she confused by the move? Enjoy every minute.

    I have those pull out drawers in several lowers cabinets, and most of my pantry. They are really helpful, especially in really deep shelves.
    The knife drawer is nice. I have a smaller version, and fewer knives in everyday use.
    All these conveniences are really nessary in older homes. Love them all

    We just got those same glasses. Funny. And our stove backsplash is the same as your Texas cottage. Great minds. Our tiles run horizontally. Your channel is a must especially when I’m feeling down. Thanks for your constant inspiration. God bless you and your family. And we have a puppy like your precious Kinsley. ❤
