More Chaos and Some New Kitchen

Love all the light your windows let in, also love the wall color (terra cotta?) is that the color your kitchen will be? How much longer till it's done?

yes, lots of lovely light - that's because this whole extension started when I asked if we could put a door in the wall opening onto a deck so that we could have a breakfast table out there on the side of the house that got the morning sun. Terry thought a conservatory would be better, which got upgraded to a room with lots of windows and while we were doing that we might as well redo the kitchen and make it a bit bigger and then why not put a room on top of that - it wouldn't cost a lot more.....

I'll have the terracotta on some of the new dining room walls. The kitchen won't have any wall really except above the stove bench and that is going to have a glass splashback with an enlarged photo of some daffodils on it - green and yellow like the kitchen cupboards and bench.

:-) They say they will have a functional kitchen by christmas but probably not all the painting or papering finished and certainly not the tiles down on the floor. Maybe end of January?

Love the new cabinetry. The vertical groove is a timeless design. I even have it in my own kitchen - not as 'flash' as yours of course :-)

I was wanting that old fashioned country kitchen look - yours is the genuine article, mine is just "faux" really! apart from authenticity the real difference is that mine will be easier to clean...
