Everyone dreams of renovating the kitchen and it’s a great investment when
Knowing we were replacing all the floors had us planning the future of the kitchen. We had to think about how the space would function as a living and dinning area too. As we tackle the house renovations in stages, having a clear plan certainly helps the process and we are putting as much research as we can to ensure it's a practical use of space.
We started our kitchen design with the idea of removing the arch wall but quickly looked at cheaper alternatives (I must keep reminding myself this is not our dream home). Granted we don’t want to make any major structural changes inside the house we are hoping to have some type of vertical column to hold the two load bearing beams. Having a column certainly puts restrictions on the design, the major problem being the kitchen island, but there is always a solution and we are now on track to make way for the new kitchen!

Kitchen wish list:
- Simple, clean lines
- Black and white cabinetry
- Caesarstone bench tops in ‘Pure White’
- Peak integrated handles
- Plenty of storage, so everything packs away.
- Window Splashback - in place of the existing window.
