It all started in the summer, that we did a ground floor overhaul.
I already showed you the sitting room makeover here, now it's about time I let you take a peek at the changes we made to our (my) kitchen.
When we moved into this house, the kitchen was okay-ish. I mean, I could cook in it, sit in it, had a great view onto the garden and woodland behind, but it had seen better days. The layout wasn't very practical and I hated the floor and worktops.
We chose an IKEA kitchen - Ädel series, that suited the house and us perfectly and hopefully the next occupants of this house (yes, that's another story).
I am not particularly proud of this. It wasn't even part of the kitchen, but a small hallway/coridor between entrance hall and kitchen. A proper dumping ground. Dark and dingy. The door on the right we had closed off and instead had a door fitted between entrance hall and sitting room, which made more sense to us.
We also knocked the wall out (for most part) between the dump and kitchen.
Next photo will show you the exact same wall.
Very happy that this fake slate floor was replaced by ....
Real natural Beijing bluestone and French limestone.
Now, wherever we might end up, our old Welsh dresser will always get pride of place and any future kitchen units will need to complement this piece of furniture we both love so much.
Hope you enjoy the end result. I know I do ;-)
