Apparently it is the year of things breaking. First the dryer, now the coffee grinder. We are back to using this old, but wonderful grinder. 60+ years and still doing a brilliant job. Coffee made, now to sit down and sketch some kitchen designs. 2018 will also be the year our home gets a new kitchen. It’s about time!
How do we feel about this layout? I don’t think I’ve seen a kitchen like this before but I like it! | by Gonterman Construction |

I have received a lot of messages tonight about my kitchen and how I did it/what I used - so I thought I would do a post on it! To start I washed all the tiles and cupboards with sugar soap from homebase it was around £1! It just takes all the grease and grime off before you paint. You can then either remove all the doors or just the handles, I chose to remove the handles as I had all three kids at the time so I wasn’t going to be faffing getting the doors off! I used @lovewilko furniture and cupboard primer - 2 coats leaving each coat to dry in between. I used a gloss roller to apply both the primer and the cupboard paint. The top coat of cupboard paint was again from @lovewilko in satin white, 2 coats of it and then I moved on to painting the tiles. Again, I used tile paint and again used a glossy roller. Once everything had dried I just screwed the handles back on. Then it was time for fablon on the worktops.. I used sanremo oak from @lovewilko. I used a bank card & a hairdryer to get the bubbles out as I stuck it down and to make it more manageable around the corners & voila - a completely new look! 😍 (cost me less than £50 for the finished look!!) #kitchen#kitchentransformation#newkitchen#whitekitchen#fablon#diy#beforeandafter

I need your help ... I’m trying to decide if I should go with an undermount or farmhouse sink for this kitchen. I’m designing this home for a developer, so I need to figure out what most homeowners prefer in their own kitchens. I like both of these beautiful, stainless steel sinks by @elkay_usa but need to hear from you before making my final decision (the sink cabinet can be modified to accommodate either one). You can see more photos of this space and follow this project to completion on @katerumson.#ElkayPartner#ElkayEveryday#sinkdecision#underconstruction#newkitchen
