It's In!

You can't get the full effect , but picture duck green tiles as the splash back with white grout.
Wood effect vinyl ( so no slips by fat bulldogs) and cream walls
I've filled every soddin cupboard!

  5. You have the same sink as us! Best thing to keep it clean is Windex window cleaner.

    It all looks great, very in keeping with the "cottage feel".

  12. Looking good. We have the same colour tiles but with very light cream grout and love them. They will look fab when they're up.

  13. Beautiful! I love it all--the cabinets, the countertop, the charming sink, and the under cabinet lighting. Sigh.

  17. Woo Hoo. And happy dances. I also love the sink, which is very different to those I see here.

  18. I won't mention, though would like to ask, how far the stove is from the sink (opposite?). Never mind. My mother didn't put me onto the planet to piss on anyone's parade. What I'd really like to know, and I am intrigued: Are you sure the left of your sink provides you with enough space for all the dirty dishes accumulating before you lovingly wash them?

    Tongue and groove greetings,
    U

  26. Did you run out of stuff before you ran out of cupboards? It looks so good. Can't wait to see it totally complete with backsplash and flooring.

    ReplyDelete
  27. It's so beautiful! I love that you chose a design that fits a cottage, and tho it is modern and clean in style, it is not all high tech modernistic granite and steel. Perfect! Can't wait to see the beautiful tiles installed too.
    It went so well so far, and you deserve this wonderful new place to enjoy and work.

  29. Looks great. It's the lore/law of kitchens that no matter how many cupboards you have - you can always do with two more! xx

  30. It's lovely John. But I did laugh at that plastic washing up bowl in the sink. Every Brit I've ever known herre is Australia uses one too and they cna't tell me why. They've got 2 perfectly good sinks in a side by side configuration and yards of draining boards with the second sink sitting there doing nothing yet they continue to use the plastic wash up bowl like they only had one sink and needed to have access down beside the bowl to the drain hole. I guess it must be hang over from single sink days but it always makes me smile when I see it.

    1. you use a plastic bowl because if you put crockery in a pot sink they can easily break or chip....especially china, and no-one could afford to keep replacing stuff, also in earlier days, the sinks themselves used to chip and show the brown/cream underneath the surface glase.

  31. I'm soaking an old silver teapot to get off the tarnish in that bowl,, didn't want to stain the sink x

  32. LOVE all the counter space! The whole set up is perfect! We just put vinyl flooring in our kitchen and bath, and we love it. Maggie, our 13-year-old mutt, loves it too.

    That is gorgeous, ours is very similar but we have not gotten around to sorting out tiles yet (it's been 3 1/2 years), duck green in my favourite colour, can't wait to see the end result xx

    ReplyDelete
  38. You have good taste, it is lovely. Hope you enjoy every moment spent in there x

  39. I haven't read all the comments so this may already have been brought up but is that a British-style sink? Seems like I saw one in Paris on another blogger's post. Maybe it's Continental. Anyway, I like the new kitchen! Congratulations. What's for supper?

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love the sink too John! It’s a beautiful streamline kitchen. I love the lines. You got some neat perks which would make me giggle.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Perfect! It's all in keeping with the Welsh cottage feel. Please show a picture with the backsplash finished as well. I want to see the whole, completed kitchen. I am so envious of how quickly it's been done! -Jenn

  42. You may have filled every cupboard, but will you remember where you've put everything??? It took me ages to get on top of the new layout, wonderful though it was.

  48. It looks lovely ๐Ÿ˜Š We have subway tiles too ... but in boring white, that's why I decided on two green walls ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Sue, when he has duck green you can't say you have boring white. What you have is probably swan white.

  49. Lovely John. I too have filled every cupboard in my kitchen but that does not mean I can find anything!

  50. Oh, this looks great! Transformations are so satisfying! Can't wait to see the duck green tiles.

  51. I love your tiles, but I don't think I ever saw a duck that colour!!

  52. I love it! And I want that sink!

  53. I love it John! Love love love it. I want a new kitchen again that I have designed but it is bottom of the list as this one isnt falling apart like the last house.

    Love the counter tops, is it oak? We bought extra oil and coated that thing like crazy people, especially around the sink area. And if you get any black/grey marks in the sink, we used to have to use something called bar keepers friend. We have to use it on our denby plates as they mark from the cutlery.

    it is going to look fab when completely finished

  54. Very tasteful. Restful too - no bright or harsh colours, just muted tones. Glad it all went so smoothly - no angry altercations with the fitters....

  59. A nice, dramatic, useful, fun kitchen. Yes, I too love the farmhouse sink.

  60. Love the farmhouse sink. When son gets out of Uni, we are retiring to Vancouver Island, (helluva lot warmer in winter than Whitehorse Yukon), and we are building our own place.
    Apart from the inevitable headache, (I'll hire a contractor), the two things on my wish list are an Aga and a farmhouse sink!
    Having kitchen envy, but so happy for you! Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy!!!

  61. It looks lovely John, I'm envying the sink. Can't wait to see the tiles up, they should look lovely against the cream walls and cupboards
