This wall is between the snug and the kitchen - because the kitchen is SO warm when the Aga is on we feel there is sufficient heat to warm both rooms - so we are knocking through into the snug and having double doors here. All of the wall cupboards are going to become base for book shelves. The dresser is going to be painted and will go on the far left wall next to the window. I am quite fancying a pale sage green colour for the units as the granite worktops have a green hint of colour. The base units will be used elsehere too
The Aga will stay put but the lids will be replaced and the black top re-enamelled, it should look like new Jon wants to strip down the inside and refurbish any worn parts. To the right of the Aga we are having a cupboard fitted which will do right up to the ceiling - no gaps for dust. This will be covered with a shutter so the microwave etc will be hidden.
The patio doors (which are old anyway) are being replaced by a single door and ajoining window. This will allow another unit to be fitted under the window. The washing machine and fridge will be housed here, integrated. The white appliance you can just see is the dishwasher. This will hidden when another wooden panel is fitted infront of it, making it integral too. All tiles are coming down, all wall cupboards are coming down and being used for storage in the porch. You will notice just behind the sink the wall dips back. I am having a shelf fitted and my crockery (all white) will sit here - straight from the dishwasher.
The cupboard in the left corner, currently home to the washing machine will become my pantry. It was one originally but the door was in the hall. We moved it into the kitchen. The floor tiles will remain and again the cupboards will be painted.
I am clicking at my heels to begin! The colour theme will run through the house - inspired by my curtains.
How is this for coincidence - I googled "Next Alium Curtains" a few minutes ago - these are the curtains I have in both the snug and large lounge - bought for next to nothing at the Next Clearance. I love them. Anyway, I came across a link in Google images to a lady who is selling a pair - large size (the curtains not the lady)...and now I have bought them so will have sufficient to make a kitchen blind! Way hey!
