New Kitchen

How we started off back in March.

It has gone from this...

to this...

We are nearly finished our new kitchen extension, hurrah!! The builders finished off yesterday and now it is up to us to get all the painting done.  More on that another day!

Here is a sneaky peek at the kitchen as it looked this morning.  Once it is painted and floored I will let you see it in all it's glory! 
It is so much better than I hoped it would be and has made a huge difference to the house, making it feel so so much bigger already.
We opted for Ikea units and I think they look good.  I especially like the tiles which we deliberated over for a long time but am so glad that we took the plunge and chose them.

The tiles are tumbled slate and are all different colours and look very natural.  They go a treat with the paint I have chosen too!

This is the old kitchen! It does look slightly better now than it did in this photo as it has all been replastered.  We have added a skylight to let more light in which has proved very successful.  The sun comes up this way in the morning and it will be a lovely bright breakfast room.  More to come on this room later as we got a second hand dresser this week which needs a paint makeover. 

Still a lot to do but I feel like we have made a massive amount of progress over the past couple of months.  Must go and do some painting....
