The kitchen was a cacaphony of checks, and was so old we easily tore it apart ourselves one afternoon.
So we installed a new kitchen, tiled the floor and painted. When I say “we” I mean we paid professionals to do it! (except painting). Solid oak cabinetry, double oven with glass cooktop, and black granite worktop. We had a custom stainless steel backsplash put in.
(It’s painted red, I don’t know why it looks orange in this picture.)
And of course the pastoral view from the window stayed the same. Whatcha think?
