My New Kitchen

Posted on: July 31, 2011

I promised you pictures of my new kitchen, so here you go!

The quality of the pictures isn’t great, apologies for that. It’s a dull grey day today so they’re a bit dark. Here’s what the kitchen looked like before:

A tired old kitchen.

Here’s during, when I was losing it at having my fridge in my living room for over a week:

And here’s after. Not fully cleaned, but you get the idea.
I love the shelves we got here to hold our chilli & pepper plants. The tea-making stuff isn’t going to stay there! All the appliances are now integrated too, which I think looks much neater.

This is a cool little extra we thought of. Using waste space to put up a metal sheet so we can stick all our holiday magnets up!

I love my granite worktop from Italy and the under counter lighting. I think the Kitchen Aid looks great in that corner:

Another Italian element, the cooker hood. I think it’s cool:

This gadget is amazeballs. It’s a Quooker tap that provides constant boiling water. No more kettle!

This is the main kitchen tap. It swivels. I love it, I think it’s like something from a sci-fi movie.

This is a brand new element. The kitchen table & chairs used to be here. We have our new enormous fridge (LOVE IT) and either side we have pull out pantries. Loads of storage for the dry groceries. There’s also a bookshelf at the end for all the cookery books.

This is hubbys favourite bit. He designed the curve in the counter front that has curved drawers & granite, with a matching curve in the top presses over the cooker hood. The induction hob is pretty impressive too, it’s brill! Only problem is none of our old pots will work on it, so we have to go searching for a new set. The magnetic knife racks on the wall are really handy too.

You can just make out the ovens at the right of the photo.

This picture is very dark, sorry. This is the ovens and the full length presses. One for the ironing board, etc, and the other one is shelved for bits & bobs including Alice’s card making stuff.

So, whatcha think? I *adore* it. Worth the hassle I think, and once it’s finally deep cleaned it’ll be perfect. We’ve been cooking up a storm in it so far, pumpkin pie, homemade rocky road ice cream, southern fried chicken etc etc etc. Yum!

Lots of knitting to show next post, so until then Good Knitting!

WOW! I mean, WOW! That's impressive. I hope you enjoy that magnificent kitchen to your heart's content 😀

You're making me drool! It's stunning. I loove the dark wood and silver handles. It looks fantastic. Makes me want to come over and relish in your kitchen. Ha ha. I love a good kitchen. They should make you feel like cooking I think. Even hanging out chatting with a cuppa.
