Our kitchen is getting so close I can taste it! The house is total chaos with walls missing and holes in the floors but I am finally seeing an end in sight.
We’ve decided on kind of a rectangle with a gap shape (sort of like an L but with a bit extra) to give the best use of space. There will be low benches and a breakfast bench on two sides and the window on one side with the fridge and pantry hidden away at the end.
I’m also pretty much set on finishes. So far choices include:
- Shadowline polyurethane cupboards in vivid white for all base cupboards plus the pantry end
- Feature wall cupboards in a textured oak finish with open shelving at the ends (kind of like the design in the second image below)
- Induction cooktop (we had this at our old house and I can never go back to gas)
- Breakfast bar
- Stone benches in a light grey with waterfall edge
- Splash back will be white diamonds (like the image below)
- Bamboo floors in a lightish “champagne” colour
I’m undecided on an under mount vs flush mount sink and whether we should go with integrated, semi integrated or a freestanding dishwasher.
?Kitchen colour palate inspiration! Pros and cons of @wk_quantumquartz vs @caesarstoneau Thinking a light grey colour (love the concrete look but not sure about the maintenance with 3 little boys making a mess!) #caesarstone #quantumquartz #kitcheninspiration #kitchendesign #renovations #scandinaviandesign #industrialkitchen #scandinaviankitchen
As you can see from the photos below, the house is kind of chaos at the moment. I have ZERO storage in the living or dining areas and very limited kitchen use. Everything has been relegated to tubs and bottles/cleaning stuff and the like are sadly living on the bench or window sill. Trying to breath and not let it stress me out.
If you’ve been following me on Instagram (fine me here) then you’ll have seen my kitchen inspiration posts. These are some of the things I’m loving.
These are the tiles we are going with and I love the open shelf at the end.
?Kitchen inspiration. Still trying to decide on the perfect wood tone for the top cabinets. So far we have chosen vivid white poly doors, grey bench and bamboo floors. Thinking oak upper cupboards? #kitcheninspiration #kitchendesign #colourchoices #neutralkitchen #whitekitchen #greykitchen #organisedkitchen #organisedhome #organisedlife #splashback #loveit #countdownison #newkitchen #happydays #quantumquartz vs #ceasarstone #decisionsdecisions #blum
These stools are just stunning and I really like the under bench microwave.
You can scroll through all the photo inspiration here. Love the colours.
