We are about 2 weeks off having our kitchen delivered. Â It will come flat packed and requiresÂ
someÂ a lot of assembly. Â We are going through a company called Kitset Kitchens. Â they have been great to deal with so far. Â Here’s hoping the end result will be good too. Â Greg’s dad and wife are coming over from New Zealand to help us get the kitchen sorted.
There is so much to do. Â We have to remove the old kitchen, pull up the slate floor, get the plumber and electrician in to do their thing. Â Install the cabinets, appliances, flooring and then get the company, Granite Transformations, who are installing our stone bench tops, to come and work their magic. Â I am both excited and overwhelmed by all that has to be done. Â I need to somehow parent 3 children amongst the chaos. Â I know it is going to dramatically change our house and I am looking forward to having an oven again. Â I have been without an oven for close to 6 months now and the novelty is wearing a little thin, but I know there is going to be a lovely light, bright new kitchen in my very near future and that will keep me going for now.
One of the features of the kitchen will be a 2 metre long island bench with waterfall edges and will allow us to sit along one edge. Â It seems I spend a lot of time in the kitchen (don’t we all) and I am excited to think of all the get togethers we will have, where I can be part of the conversations, while everyone gathers around my kitchen bench.
I am so looking forward to having stone bench tops once again. Â The style we have chosen is called White Star and is light in colour with flecks of mirror through the stone that reflects the light (it isn’t tacky, I promise!). Â It looks really pretty under halogen lighting. Â I would love to show you photos of my dream kitchen but I don’t have any and I have tried looking on line, but haven’t found anything similar to what we are installing. Â So I guess it will be a surprise to you and me both. Â I can’t wait to share the before and after photos. Â I think it will just about flip me out! Â Jacinta x
