A week of the house - day 3

Feeling Hungry?
This is the kitchen in all it's unfinsihed glory! Hubs has done a great job putting it all together. We just have to do the bulkhead over the stove to house the rangehood and put in one more cabinet then it's done!
The plasterers will have to come back and finish the cornice at some stage.

The kitchen was purchased through Kitset Kitchens. Whilst we have had a few things go wrong, it is a really good system if they could just get it right first time.
Hubs knows a guy who works at "The Good Guys" so we got all of our appliances at a very good price!
The island bench - and no the kitchen people have not been to see the "Slpit".
One of them actually said "Can you bring it in?" What the......

The handles are from "IKEA". After searching around for ages on the net for the perfect handles, I finally found them. We wanted something fancy without being too fancy if you know what I mean.
The benchtop is "Laminex" Limestone and the cabinets are Frosty white.
Oh, and the tiling still has to be finished too - does it ever stop?
The bulkhead is to be built to house the rangehood and we will have a mantle over the top with a couple of "fancy" corbels!
So, there it is in its' unfinsihed glory.
A new, bigger, dining table is on its' way too. Gosh, we may be able to have some visitors in comfort at last!

Hi Kathryn, ooh your house looks just beautiful! The kitchen looks fantastic, I just love white kitchens. Had to laugh though about the problems you were having with the kitchen people as I thought I picked the worst people. They made that many mistakes it wasn't funny. I even had to take doors back! They must all be the same and I agree wouldn't it be so much easier if tradespeople did things right the first time. Anyhow am loving your pics, thanks so much for the tour! Have fun decorating, Maryann

It looks lovely, even in an unfinished state! White kitchens are my absolute favourite, even though I love colour everywhere else.
I love how you have the different kitchen zones - cooking, washing up, food prep etc. Oh how I wish I had a huge spacious kitchen again.

I have oven envy... is that not the best oven ever. I hate, I mean I really hate the oven in our new home. My cake trays don't even fit in it - LOL.

I think your whole kitchen looks just lovely and yes, those handles from IKEA are perfect.
Hugs ~ Kerryanne

Kathryn your home looks beautiful! So bright and airy!! I love the tile backsplash and the handles are perfect. We had the toughest time picking handles out when we remodeled our kitchen. And then when I started counting them up...well I couldn't beleive how many there were!

Everything looks fabulous!
