ME: (daydreaming) What is the ONE room that can make or break a house for sale?


Kitchen trends, they are a-changin'! Some of us have happy memories of eating family meals in the kitchen, while others like me, still have nightmares about the kitchens in our childhood homes. (That's because I hated doing the dishes.)

I've noticed a trend toward newer homes that are built with a heavy focus on the open concept kitchen islands here in Washington.

Some reports say that you'll need to make an income of at least $200,000 a year to afford a home in Seattle. I certainly don't make anywhere near that much so I just keep  on trying to manifest my way to a luxury lifestyle!


That reminds me, I need to buy a lottery ticket tonight!



In my off time, I love checking out and just daydreaming my BUNS off.

DREAM BIG, amirite?

I went to Fathom Realty's website earlier this afternoon because I had wanted to see if I could rent out the famous houseboat from the movie, Sleepless in Seattle. (I think I saw it advertised as a rental somewhere on Facebook or someplace.)

Their real estate website grabbed my attention straightaway with all their listings of multi-million dollar mansions.

I decided to peek at the kitchens inside these homes. Let's see what the rich & fabulous in Washington state are workin' with!

This is a 24 million-dollar home in Seattle. It even has its own name: The Bluff.

This is the kitchen in The Bluff! It's equipped with a dishwasher, double oven, fridge, stove, and an oven range. Oh my goodness, it's a beauty!

THAT WAS FUN! Let's look at a kitchen in another unaffordable (for me) home for sale.

Here is a $12,000,000 abode, also located in Seattle. It's located on an umpteenth floor.

Here's the kitchen! Wow, it's so spacious! I love how it has an open concept.

I'm also drooling over this home's closet, but that's another story for another day!

If I look at any more of these luxury home kitchens, I might spontaneously combust, but here's one more.


This is a $5M home near Olympia.
