My creative space is all about quantities and dimensions and kit codes and legs and kick boards and pencil round edges and face routings and hinges and so on ........today.
My mum is moving to a little cottage in the country very soon. To say that the kitchen has seen better days, is a slight understatement. It currently consists of a wood burning stove, a sink, and a bench.....
.....and lots and lots of yellowy pine on the walls and the ceiling!
I designed my old kitchen using basic flatpacks, so I'm using my tried and tested method again here. I've measured all of the existing spaces and designed the kitchen around them.
You have to use a little bit of imagination here:
Imagine lovely polished hardwood floors, the entire kitchen painted in Dulux Chalk USA (except for the beautiful wooden mantelpiece surrounding the wood stove), antique white cabinets, and a benchtop in soft browns and neutral tones.
There are three doorways, two windows, and the wood stove to deal with, so the best option was to create a cleaning zone - where the sink will be located (at the top of pic above), a pantry and cooking zone - with proper underbench oven and cooktop above (left side of pic above), and a storage zone (over on the right).
We're going to search for an old worn kitchen table and chairs for the centre of the room to create some rustic country charm..... but first, there's lots and lots of work to do!
