New Kitchen

Hi Everyone, I have been lacking mojo BIG time, for months in fact, as you must be aware. I've had a few people ask about my kitchen, so I thought it about time I showed it to you.

I was the most stressful time, I've had in a long time, but it's all together and after learning to use the new appliances, I have actually baked a cake (lemon drizzle) something I haven't done in about 20 years, and I was thrilled that it came out and tasted beautiful.

When I went back to work full time,  hubby took over everything, I was so very lucky. BUT, it meant I didn't do anything, as it was all done when I came home. The downside to this is that now retired I have to relearn everything. I did everything for the first 30 years of marriage, then lost all my house skills.  I know doesn't seem possible! it's true though.

Anyway here are a few piccies of the new kitchen. My roof window is the most incredible thing to me, as the kitchen was always dark, especially in Winter, at first we thought the electric light was on in the kitchen LOL. I LOVE the light it brings.

It's a very simplistic room, nothing fancy or expensive, as I wanted something easy to clean and boy is it easy. I love the induction hob, so quick, I love my oven it actually works, not like the last one! We have a dishwasher the first for over 30 years!!! and an integral fridge/freezer, not too impressed with the inside size, if I had known I would have had a free standing one, but hey! it's great. The floor is easy to clean and doesn't show marks, BUT does show if I drop something! All in all I am thrilled with it. It's only a small room, but it's easy.




this is the poster you can see above, in the corner, I cut it out on the Silhouette Cameo from vinyl,  it's an svg file from Creativefabrica, I made it an A3 size, says it all for me!

Your kitchen looks fabulous Faith, lovely and bright - we have two roof lights in our kitchen, they are brilliant aren't they, they let in some much light. I actually photograph my cards under one of them.
Your poster is fabulous it looks perfect on the wall.

I envy you the new kitchen, Faith. Wonderfully clean and white, and so convenient for reaching things without having to take lots of extra steps. The skylight is terrific! I have one in my kitchen, too, and it brings in such delightful natural light. You'll love it more and more as time goes by. :-D

Faith, it looks awesome and I am glad that you are happy in your new space. Sometimes we just need a break from the cards for awhile for the Mojo to come back. Do what makes you enjoy because life is too short.

Looks lovely Faith, mine is very similar and I love how easy it is to clean without any knobs or handles. I have an induction hob too, took me a little while to get used to it but I love it now xx

Brenda said...

Wowzers! I am so loving your new kitchen Faith!!! It's so sleek and shiny and beautiful! Is that your fridge in the second photo with the vent at the bottom? If so, it does look a little narrow, but pictures can be deceiving. Love the sign you made too, I want to make some tea towels with that saying on it. lol I know you have to be thrilled with your new kitchen, I know I am totally loving it!!! Hugs, Brenda

It is beautiful, Faith! I love it. I can relate to how stressful it is. Enjoy it now and keep baking! It is a very calm looking room. I too am very lucky having a hubby that does a lot of housework. He doesn't cook though, just clears up my mess!

Carol L said...

Oh Faith the hassle and wait was so worth it....It looks fabulous. So clean looking, minimal looking and as you say easy to clean....Win win. Love the extra light feature and the kitchen is so well designed. You will enjoy learning to cook again in this kitchen. Had a chuckle with the sentiment on the poster x Thank you for sharing Faith and I have often thought how you where getting on with it x Glad it's all done for you x

Your kitchen looks fabulous. After we've just completed the upstairs and dining and living room .. the kitchen is next! I've already taken a leave of absence over the first bout.

Hoping to get back to stamping in the interim!

Beautiful fresh looking kitchen! I'm not a great cook & love not having a big kitchen to clean--close to the size of yours, I'd say. Love the poster & all the windows above your sink!

Linby said...

I've been waiting to see your kitchen and loved looking at the photos. It looks lovely - I wish mine was uncluttered but I do love gadgets lol! Great wall art too.

Viv said...

In awe of your new kitchen Faith,(and the poster) it looks fabulous!our daughter has a very similar one too. We still have ours to do yet, sooo dreading it. Thanks for the advice about the integral fridge too, I was thinking about one but wanted lots of space still like the freestanding one we have already. Any more tips appreciated!;) hugs Viv xx
