We have been planing the kitchen for years now and it seems that we’re finally close to starting work of it. I can not wait to get rid of what we have as it is too crowded and lots of it is broken. This is what we currently have:
It is long and thin but unfortunately there is not enough storage for all the cooking bits and bobs that we have so everything ends up looking cluttered and it always seems to be a mess.
To make things worse, we also have:
- An ugly hole where the freezer used to be that now reveals the old water tank and loads of pipes
- A plumping system under the sink that is held together with tape that fails regularly
- A kitchen floor covered in drawings where The Husband has tried to sketch out where the new table will go
- A hole in the wall where we decided to check what was behind it…in case there were any surprises (we’re pretty confident it is just the chimney as planned)
The plan is to knock down the wall behind the oven to combine the ‘dining room’ with the kitchen and open up the space. I’m really excited about walking into the kitchen from the hall and being able to see both windows but the dining room is currently nothing more than a room completely full of stuff that has nowhere else to go:
This archway and corridor between the two rooms will also be removed as we open up the whole space:
There is so much to do but fingers crossed there won’t be too many surprises.
