And where better to start than in the heart and hearth of the home, the kitchen?
To choose a new kitchen?! It’s the most difficult en expensive investment. In this blog I want to give some advice and my experience about it. You also can see the before after pictures.
First of all I search on internet for inspiration. You can find through Instagram and Pinterest so many photos.
Maybe you don’t believe it, but I went to 10 kitchen stores. Because every kitchen store gives another advice. Some stores more and important information then you think.
I choose for a monochromatic Cottage Kitchen, WHITE with ANTHRACITE color.
The stone counter top is granite. I really love that color combination. White offers a relaxing a calming feeling.
Fresh & clean. So, the contrasts is the top granite.
Granite is a very hard stone and 100 percent natural. It’s mined from quarries all around the world, cut down to a manageable size, and then polished to a fine finish. Granite countertops should be cleaned daily with soap and water or a mild household cleaner. Some oils and acids can stain so do your homework first to avoid stains.
Consider your budget and specific needs before making a decision. I choose for a MDF door, because is relatively durable as a substrate and very stable.
Last but not least I choose for Siemens Studioline products, for the dishwashing, cooling and oven. During my student time I worked for Marskramer and Blokker. Lucky me! Because I had so much kitchen equipment purchased. But
– Go to different kitchen stores
– Think about the style
– Ask for 3D drawing
– Think about the materials
– Think about the format
– Don’t say your exactly budget!
I hope you like this blogpost!
This is the before picture. It was a very old kitchen.
I am a tea and Turkish coffee lover!
I really love this nude colours in the kitchen.
Very handy in the kitchen. Especially during cooking.
I love this retro kettle. I bought it through the webshop of bol.com
I love to be organized.
I am also a big fan of English tea cups. I buy them from a second hand store.
As you as can see I organize the tableware in color.
I really love this glasses. Once I found them ugly, but now I am in love with it. Very handy for smoothie and chic when you have guests. I bought the glasses at Ikea & Action.
