The main room in our house that I want to change is the kitchen. The kitchen we have is not ideal but it does the job. It’s the original kitchen that was installed when the house was built and it hasn’t changed. It’s big and the possibilities are endless. So here’s a list of what I want to do to our kitchen.
Part of my dream is to build an extension to the kitchen. One of those conservatory things that don’t need planning permission! The kitchen would double in size which means I could have an island and a breakfast bar. In the diner area I would have bi-fold doors opening up onto our garden. Something like the above.
New Wall Tiles
The wall tiles are small and look old-fashioned. I want something that is a blend of modern and traditional. I would love to have an open brick type wall in the kitchen – those stylish ones you keep seeing on Pinterest. Ones like the brick slips at UK Feature Walls would be just right. This would be the modern to my traditional.
The current floor tiles are small red and yellow tiles and are horrible to clean. We have two dogs who are mucky and cleaning said tiles is a nightmare. They never look sparkling clean no matter how much bleach I put on them. I would opt for smooth tiles (for easy cleaning) but can’t decide between cream or a wood effect. Possibly I would choose a wood effect – but it does depend on the style of the new worktops.
New units and worktops
Of course with a new extension I need new worktops and kitchen units. I like the idea of a French country look which to me is white units and a light wooden worktop. This would be the traditional to go with my modern brick slips.
However being a fan of Welsh slate I could go all out and get a slate worktop to go with glossy white worktops and then tie it in with a darker version of the brick slips. Ah decisions decisions!
What is your dream kitchen like?
