Kitchen sink drama...

We are going to update our kitchen, the above pics are the kitchen as it is now and when we knocked it through about five years ago. It's the only "during" pic I can find. Taking the wall down was something I wanted to do from the very first day we viewed the flat and what a difference it made! The area to the left has gone from the most unused and dead part of the flat to the most used especially during one of our parties. We desperately need more storage space and because we can't buy the matching doors we have decided to go for a gloss white handle-less design by adding another larder unit on the opposite wall and changing the doors, drawers and side panels. The stainless steel work tops are staying and although they are a complete pain to keep clean I absolutely love them. I'm obsessing about it all now as usual and just want to see it all done...

Ooh, exciting. Where are the larder units going, is it beside the fridge?


Hi AO,
Yes it will be next to the fridge.
We have a tall oven unit with the oven and microwave built in and to the right of that and attached to it is a tall larder unit, the new tall larder unit will go on the left and be attached to the oven unit.


Although I am not such a fan of mixing dark, warm colored wood with steel, it looks really sleek and stylish in your kitchen. But I could never ever handle steel countertops - I admire your patience!

My kitchen has white-glossy fronts and they are blissfully easy to keep clean.

I can spot a couple of items from the first Porsche for Philips collection. I have them too, and love them deeply. :c)


Hi Anna, I think I will cry the day my kettle and toaster die on me because I don't like the re-design of them.

Thanks for the compliment on my kitchen, most people think we are mad to change it!
I'm counting down the days until we finally have our white deliciousness delivered!



I almost had to cry the other day, when the kettle refused to start up! I also don't like the "second generation". This first one had a different design, and the second one looks just like any other brand. How annoying.

Good luck with your remodeling. :c)
