Finished, I’m finished !

Well, not really.

The kitchen is done. I’m so happy, I can now cook myself beautiful meals. There’s not a lot left to do, new floor in the bathroom, putting up some shelves, new curtain poles and curtains, getting artwork framed. While not a lot of work, it’s still going to take a while to complete.

To wet your appetite here are the before and after photos of the kitchen.


The property was built in the mid 1980’s and the kitchen, like the rest of the flat hasn’t been updated since then.

I moved the fridge next to the built in Oven and Microwave. Moved the induction hob to where the sink was and the sink facing the window. There’s a small dishwasher next to the hob and I’m still deciding if I’m going to get a washer / dryer or continue to use those in the complex.

As the kitchen is so small, I decided on white cabinets but went for a dramatic cobalt blue tiled back splash and a slate effect vinyl floor.

I swapped out the light fitting for an LED one and installed lighting under the cupboards. As the kitchen isn’t over looked by any other homes, I’m going not going to replace the blind.
