Our kitchen is getting a face-lift soon. I am so excited!
When we moved to our house, our kitchen was pine. Pretty much everything was pine in the house, so no surprise there, but the pine in the kitchen made the space look very dark and oppressive so Mr B and I painted it white which helped us survive in it for the last 4 years.
The problem with the kitchen was not only the color, but the space did not work. At all. You have heart about the concept of the “kitchen triangle”? Well, the people who designed my kitchen had never heard of it. Or the kitchen square. I think for the it was more like a game of tetris – this fits here, it goes there then. Seriously, really bad.
But not worry, the end is in sight and we are going to have a kitchen that works, a simple, bright and practical kitchen. And a big fridge. I can’t tell you how excited I am about hsving a big fridge. We currently have an under counter fridge that freezes everything at the back, has no light and I hate… (breaths heavily into a paper bag…).
Everything has been planned, from tiles to units. The only thing left to choose is the lighting… So many options….
On one hand, I love the INDUSTRIAL VIBE…
Although there is something pretty warm about VINTAGE LIGHTING.
But sometimes I think I should go totally with MODERN LIGHTING, because I am a modern kind of girl, you know…
Or I could also go with all NATURAL MATERIALS for warmth.
So many options, so many beautiful lights…
I will let you know what lighting we choose when it is all done. I am excited. I am so excited to the idea of having a functioning kitchen. And a new one at that. Yay and double yay!!!
