Back when I got the keys in July 2015:
Several months of posts later:
My kitchen, as of January 2016
The original bottom cupboards have been kept and repainted, everything else is newly installed and either Ikea or DIY built.
It’s first and foremost a working kitchen, so I chose an easy to clean electric cooker, cupboards that you can easily see into, oak worktop that could take a beating and an implements rack to have everything close to hand.
(Try to ignore the bottle of white spirits on the window ledge, it’s practically a permanent fixture now)
My first ever dishwasher! Also recycling bins under the sink in full view because I like having instant access.
Close up of the tiles and the plant I haven’t killed yet.
The lights are simple green metal pendants. The doors to under the stairs and my (soon to be) workroom have the original green paint I found under the board covering them on the panels and I just painted up the edges.
Here’s the sorry state of my tool cupboard. This is something I don’t expect to change much for the next forever.
And one last quick comparison side by side. Such a difference!
…Now to get to work on this room.
