I have to be honest, the kitchen area doesn’t really look all that different now it has been tiled, it just looks “properly” finished off and will hopefully be more practical to keep clean rather than when it was just painted.
The cupboards are a very glossy pale cream colour so I went for a simple, off white, textured tile as a contrast. The work took a little longer than expected as I went and chose small 10cm x 10cm tiles!
So, that’s the kitchen done although I think a new built-in cooker and hob are on the cards for later this year, I just need a bit of advice before taking the plunge as I want to change the hob from gas to electric. I have never had gas before and it frightens me! It’s at times like this when I miss Ade who had helped me so much over the past four years getting The Castle ready to sell, he was so dependable and would tell me exactly what I needed to do or get in a language I understood!
Once tiled and back to normal I blitzed the cupboards again, paring everything down, questioning all the contents and how often I actually use them, I mean, how many mugs does a woman living on her own actually need?
The flat was exactly six years old when I bought it, the kitchen cupboards should see me out ……. but if ever I had money too squander recklessly I would consider replacing them, especially for cupboards that went right to the ceiling, the gap is such a waste of storage potential and would, without said gap alleviate the need to climb up on high to clean the top. ……. but that’s me just being spoilt and picky!
