It’s been weighing on my mind that I haven’t completed any creative projects over May, but I have started work on the kitchen. I wasn’t going to post ‘before’ pics….cos seeing that I work in interior design, I was kind of embarrased to put it out there what I’ve been living with for the past 8 years….but I figured that ‘after’ pics are no good without some sense of comparison. So here we go.
The crazy angles and unusual shapes are what gives this space character, but I’m telling you now that it’s difficult to work in and storage is so tight that I use my dishdrawer as a second pantry. Yes I did say that. So the main challenge is how to make this space more open, while creating more storage, and without any major structural changes because we’re working with a small budget here.
This angled window would be so much easier if the glass ran straight up and down, but it doesn’t. It means there’s no splashback (glass gets dirty easily) and there’s this little gap running right along between the bench and the glass, that you know, you can hear the wind whistling through on a windy evening. Not the best, but we don’t get condensation…I’m taking any perk I’m given…. The ply panels were put in recently to replace beautiful stained glass – sorry to see those go but the glass was so thin! And I have a plan for how to use these areas so keep posted. I’ve started on plans – got the main layout sorted – just need to work on the elevations and make sure everything fits.
Gotta fly….work still to do before the 3pm kiddo pick-up. Bye!
