We're supposed to show a favourite part of our kitchen and tell you why.
Well, my kitchen is so dinky that the whole thing is my favourite:
When we moved in the kitchen was a hideous 1970's brown and beige formica affair and in an attempt to cultivate a Mediterranean look I painted the walls orange (over the wallpaper!!) and the cupboard doors dark blue which chipped spectacularly. Where you see the opening into the conservatory was a window and next to it the back door.
After a couple of years we were able to afford new cupboard doors & worktop on the old carcasses and new floor & wall tiles. But it was still all a bit cheap and orange and I never really felt the love for it....
Then three years ago we had the conservatory/garden room (it has solid ends, with a glass front and peaked conservatory roof) across the back of the house. We really wanted the kitchen wall knocked out and the kitchen into the new room but due to money and regulations we had to make do with taking the door & window out.
We then got a brand new kitchen in my dream country style complete with butler sink and painted the walls my favourite duck egg blue:
Mr G's mum and dad treated us to the hoooooge fridge freezer
The only thing that is not quite right now (and in fact looks worse in these pics than in real life) is the cooker hood and splashback. A few months ago our stainless steel cooker door finally fell of completely (it had been hanging by a thread for years!!) and when I saw the above Aga style baby on eBay for a bargain price I bought it matching splashback or not!!
So that is our dinky little kitchen, small but perfectly formed.
PS Ooooh and the side effect of this link party is the kitchen has had a good clean so I could take pics for you!!
