The New Kitchen

Now there’s an imaginative blog post title if ever I saw one. It reminds me of that advert, does exactly what it says on the tin. I can’t remember what the advert was for now, so perhaps that wasn’t the best marketing strategy.

Obsessed with my new Kitchen

So, last Friday marked the end of our 2 week marathon of takeaways, pub meals and microwave dinners. It marked the end of sitting all in one room for work rest and play, surrounded by the microwave, toaster and kettle.

It marked the start of me feeling more contented in my home than I ever have before. That’s not to say I’ve never felt contented, I love this home. As I stood in my brand new stunning kitchen that I’d designed to be exactly as I want it to be, I genuinely asked myself, how did I get here? I mean, I know how I got here, I’ve been working my socks off since I was 18, university twice followed by corporate jobs throughout. Nonetheless, I do recognise my blessings.

Aside from rediscovering the joys of homecooked food (which prior to 2 weeks on an ultra-processed diet I loved anyway), my new kitchen has revealed to me the joy in cleaning worksurfaces, putting away my washing up and leaving the kitchen clean each and every evening. Sad but true!

Well… putting most of the things away

I have a couple of things left to do, painting the wall where my old eyesore of an extractor hood was removed for my new sleek one to be put in. I also think I’m going to do some wallpapering, but at the moment, I am just super happy with my beautiful kitchen.

If you’re interested in the details, it was from Magnet kitchens, the model is Tatton and the colour is Sage. Now, I’m off to wipe down my work surfaces.

  1. I’m more than just a little envious of your new kitchen, Louise! Definitely worth two weeks of chaos, takeaways, pub meals and microwave dinners! xxx
