I wish this was my kitchen. Due to a breakdown in several electrical appliances, we are looking at some changes in our kitchen. The one above is my practical choice - we have jarrah floors.
In a world of endless $$$$ I would choose this design above
I am loving this bench. We are looking at one of these and taking out the large table we rarely use - what do your think of island benches instead of tables??
I love the timber mouldings, the tiles and the door handles - all of it
Our oven/stove area is similar as the above pic, as is the room size and ceiling height. Im thinking the bench would be across though. Love that mantle - ours used to have one in the 1930's, so I would like to replicate it.
These are all early thoughts as we have to make some changes to the cooking area to accomodate our new stove etc by taking out some cupboards and cutting out some stone wall/tile area above the stove. We'll also be putting in a dishwasher, and some cupboards off to the right of the cooking area as in the above pic (or similar) This will take a little while, as seeding on the farm is starting, but I'll be taking lots of photos to show the changes.
Hope all of the Mums out there have a relaxing and enjoyable day on Mothers Day. Im off to lunch at my girlfirends hotel with my Mum, sister, brother and their families and my girl, Lauren.
