As I mentioned yesterday in my Life Lately update, we are about to embark on a renovation of sorts… well, we haven’t quite worked out which parts of our renovation we are starting with due to endless budget adjustments, but we are doing some work and it’s the very first time we’ve done anything like this.
Needless to say I’m super excited about designing my dream home… and then completely overwhelmed at the same time when it comes to all the decisions this type of project involves. WOW. Not only do you have to take your own style into account, but also your partner’s, your practical needs and your budget. And that’s just the beginning. Then you have to make choices on counter tops, plug points, lights, switches, taps, mixers, baths, toilets, tiles, flooring etc etc etc. It goes on and on.
For someone like me who has a pretty good idea of what she likes, it’s still hectic. Who knew there were so many types of taps???
I’m meeting with our kitchen lady on Monday and she said to come prepared… the best I know how is Pinterest. I signed up in the first few months of the site launching and was prolific for a while, but this this blog took over and I couldn’t do both. Pinterest is a notorious time machine that meant I had to give it up… until now. I think I’m addicted again and it’s only been one night!
So to help me get a bit of clarity about what I like here are some of the beautiful kitchens that caught my eye…
Can you see my style emerging… I think this is a good start. Obviously I love natural wood, open shelving, white, grey, charcoal, metro tiles…
Let me know what you think!!
And if you have any renovations tips they would be MOST WELCOME round about now!
