We have decided we need a new kitchen after putting up with the boring and inconvenient one of the original owners for 12 years. It is drab (all a creamy white with ?brass handles), the glass front of the oven surround had a crack and chip out of it, the sink is right in the corner and our fridge opens the wrong way in it.
Although recently I have been unable to do much at all, even when Steve cooks I need to enter the kitchen for glasses of water and to throw out organic recyclables like banana skins. The dopey arrangement of workspace means we bang into each other (or the fridge door), frequently and I hate that! At our other homes we used to call it “the kitchen quadrille” and laugh about the fancy footwork needed to avoid getting in each other’s way! The new kitchen should prevent most unwelcome dancing. So far the kitchen company has been outstanding in it’s friendly design service and attention to detail in the planning. We chose Wallspan rather than one of the upmarket kitchen companies as we have fairly simple tastes – no marble, ice makers or Miele.
We even decided to get our awkward laundry re done as well when the guy came to measure up. Appliancesonline.com.au has already delivered a new front loading washing machine to get us started in style in there.
Since I have no access to the autocad depiction of the new kitchen, this is a photo of something similar to show the quiet colour scheme. The paint colour is for the frames on our conservatory window over the sink, rather than wood tones.
