Presenting the updated kitchen! The photos just came through from photographer Chloe Snaith and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
As I mentioned previously, we didn’t want to over-capitalise by ripping out the kitchen entirely, and Granite Transformations came to the party by giving us a completely new look over the space of a week. I believe the new bench top is the hero in the space, and I’m so pleased I chose the bolder direction of ‘Terra Chiara’. Taking out the dated servery counter and extending the bench top to create a little breakfast bench was also a massive plus. All the cabinet door and drawer fronts were made byTesrol – we replaced the dated apricot doors with with a shaker profile in Dulux Lexicon Quarter, and the quality is amazing. I was also thrilled to get some internal elements replaced – giving us soft closing drawers and reinforcement for heavy pots and pans. Another major plus was the double bin drawer that was incorporated. It’s still hard to believe that the bulk of the kitchen is all still the same behind those lovely new doors.
The images speak for themselves, so I’ll just load everything here (can you tell I love them??), and leave you with a little sourcing list at the end.
