So, we've decided to put off the garage conversion (and wedding for that matter - how romantic are we?) and concentrate instead on a new kitchen.
I hate it as it is at the moment, it's a small galley kitchen and as a consequence it gets very cluttered. That may or may not have something to do with my hoarding tendencies. We don't have enough storage, or enough worktop. The current dishwasher sticks out like a sore thumb, so thinking about which dishwasher is a big consideration to the flow of the kitchen.
We've decided to go with an integrated one and probably an integrated fridge freezer, just because I think it will look sleeker and hopefully give the impression the kitchen is bigger than it actually is.
I know I don't want real wood worktops again - despite my promises I never looked after them properly and they do take a lot of maintenance. Seriously, who has time to be oiling worktops?
We've been thinking of going for a style of cupboard that has no protruding handles, again because it will give a smoother line, but so far the only ones I've seen have been ultra-modern and space-age and that's just not us.
I'm having real difficulty settling on a style - I don't want chunky wooden traditional or shaker, but nor do I want hi-tech. It's such a huge outlay to have a new kitchen we need to pick something we love.
So I'm asking for your help. If you spot anything in a magazine or on a website you think I might like, can you give me a shout. Any suggestions gratefully received because if I look at another kitchen brochure, I think I may scream.
