We bought a house that used to be something quite different, so its not quite geared up for domestic use. We are starting from scratch to make it look like a family home again! The kitchen is practical but not beautiful, I have quite big plans for it. I want to knock out the separate pantry to make it a better-shaped kitchen. The pantry might sound a useful addition but all it does is house boxes and boxes of junk!!! So getting rid of the pantry would force me to reduce my clutter and streamline my life…
We like to do as much as we can ourselves; hubbie is a dab hand at painting and fitting flooring and skirting. But other jobs we will need more skilled advice and knowledge. The structural engineer would have to come back to see if there are any load supporting walls before we go in all eager bashing down the pantry!
I want the kitchen to be the hub of the home, a warm and inviting room that we can spend time in quite comfortably. At the moment its functional I will give it that but very commercial, we have taken away one of the extra sinks (seriously three was overload!). I want a neutral colour scheme and then add some colour to the blinds to liven things up! I want a massive fridge, the boys are ALWAYS hungry and our smaller fridge can never house enough food to keep them going throughout the week.
I have got my mood board at the ready so when we do have some spare cash operation transform the kitchen can start in earnest!
