Steamboat Springs There are a lot of ways to dress up a kitchen: extra counter space, extra ovens, extra sinks, extra freezers, designer spice racks.
Or, more traditionally, a cooking space can be dressed up by suiting the space to what you need.
In Linda Liman's kitchen, that means counter tops built a little higher than normal to accommodate her and husband Les' height, and decorative art from their world travels.
The Liman's moderately sized, Old Town kitchen will be one of six stops on the fourth annual Strings in the Mountains Kitchen Tour. The fundraiser has been a popular way to support one of Steamboat's most prominent arts events, said event organizer Sue Fishman.
"It's a great community fundraiser and goes to a good cause and everyone likes it," she said.
Strings plans to bring in a variety of designers and decorators, who will be on hand for all queries about culinary design.
"It's good for a lot of people who are looking to remodel or build or even just accessorize," Fishman said. "You can get a lot of good ideas."
With one of the smaller displays on the tour, Liman said she volunteered her kitchen as a way to support Strings, and to give greater variety to the scope of what can be seen on the tour. It's her three-year-old kitchen's first year with the fundraiser.
"It's a chance just to have a more typical, more obtainable kitchen in Old Town, and for people to have a look at what Old Town can do," Liman said.
