Wedgewood Blue - Revamp update!


After much discussion it looks as though we are going for one of these - trading in our solid fuel Aga for a wedgewood blue electric model. We have done the necessary calculations re fuel availability, costing etc and  have taken into consideration both of our initial thoughts - I wnated to keep an Aga - Jon wanted to get away from the dusty dirty atmosphere we have with the solid fuel.

We have measured up the big lounge and as I sit here, Jon is drawing up a model of the room ready for DIY project number 1! I am excited!

  6. How I would love one of those, not in this house though, just wouldn't suit the style at all. Ah well, maybe one day.

  10. Vintage - not so expensive as what we have now. We have no mains gas - so oil (ever increasing in price) bottled gas (lpg) (ever increasing) and both being stolen on a regular basis are not an option. This is the way we want to go - believe me we have thought and calculated long and hard)

  11. No wonder you're excited! Always good to come to a conclusion after much deliberation, and it looks great ~ except who will want to cook and bake to mess it up ;)

  13. No wonder you're excited. I love it too, that blue would perfectly match my kitchen utensils and gadgets ... if only I could make the kitchen bigger.

  14. A striking colour - I like it! It's hard making those kind of decisions but as you say, it'll be much cleaner.

  15. Yes, Denise, solid fuel Agas are hard work and create a lot of dust. I used to have a wedgewood blue Rayburn/solid fuel and it was lovely but I was young then.

    We have an oil-fired Aga now (dark green) and i woldn't be without it.
    Good luck with the project - and don't forget to call in when you are coasting through the Dales - or calling in Richmond (we could meet for lunch)

  16. hiya- I just followed the duck pic and came over...but I'm not sure where from :)) (the fact I'm in the middle of my glass of wine may have contributed to lack of concentration!)

    Go for it with the electric Aga!
    Our kitchen is a tad too small to fit an Aga, so we have a Rayburn.

    Changed from the solid fuel cos I got fed-up with "the wind always being in the wrong direction" and either burning up too high or being unable to keep it in at all, and all that constant dust.

    Now on oil, which is great cos everything is at the flick of a switch...until we just had to pay £560 for a tank of fuel :((

    I've never had a home without an Aga or Rayburn- don't care what anyone says, when you live as we live it's not a luxury at all.

    Have a lovely weekend

  17. Gorgeous, we have a black range which I love but it is a nightmare to keep clean - love that blue colour and will look clean for longer I am sure.

  18. hi again- that was so funny!
    I found you from seeing the duck photo on another blog and left a comment- went over to my blog and found you'd left a comment on mine.
    Spooky!
