A New Year, A New Kitchen
I haven’t been blogging regularly for a while and nobody’s currently reading this blog, so hopefully I can get away with slipping this in without anyone noticing.
WARNING: I guarantee you will see nothing uglier on the Internet today than the following pictures. Get the eye bleach ready just in case.
Finally, this year we will be remodelling our upstairs kitchen. Our house has many fine features – a great location, a fabulous roof deck and spectacular views among them, but it is not blessed in its kitchens.
I say kitchens, because we have two of them, one upstairs and and one downstairs. The downstairs one is very tiny and in need of extensive remodelling, so we tend to mostly use the upstairs kitchen. Yes, the pictures you are about to see are of our nicest kitchen.
Aren’t those burnt orange walls and green laminate countertops just GORGEOUS?
I bet you’re jealous of those fabulously inconvenient shelves.
You too, can revel in the lack of storage space. Now do you understand why you never see any ‘in progress’ shots on my recipes?
It gets worse in the other direction.
What about that LOVELY panelled ceiling?
The. fridge. will. go.
I am so embarrassed that we’ve been in this house for six years and done nothing about this hideosity.
We are on a tightish budget, so we can spend more on the downstairs kitchen, so it’s going to be Ikea or similar all the way up here, keeping most of the existing appliances and the existing layout intact. We already have half a ton of Ikea kitchen stacked up in our basement, bought in the recent sale, and the contractor is due to start at the beginning of February.
Wish us luck! I’ll be asking for lots of our opinions along the way. At the very least we know whatever we end up with can’t possibly be worse than this.
