I have been in my house for just over 4 years now and since moving in I haven’t really done any decorating or home improvements as such. I’m kinda lazy with regards to that kind of thing. It doesn’t however mean I don’t think about changing things up a bit, freshening my look. Therein lies the problem, I never get past thinking about it!
About 6 months after I moved in I got a brand spanking new fitted kitchen courtesy of the housing association. I went for black and white all through so I could add my own splash of colour and not worry about it if matches. Purple made the short cut and has since adorned kitchen to brighten the place up.
I am quite lucky I do have a fairly decent size kitchen/dining room, honestly though it’s wasted on me, can’t cook, won’t cook and I end up hoarding junk in various places. Like my 6 seater dining table that we never use and ends up mostly covered in clean washing I need to get round to putting away. Wasted space if you ask me. My kitchen looks out onto my back garden and in the summer months I love to just sit in the kitchen and look out of the window.
With this in mind I have been thinking of having a little overhaul and making it more cosy and homely and less of a dumping ground.
My Kitchen Wishlist.
Bar Stools from Littlewoods in purple £45 each. Currently I have an under counter fridge and freezer. I would love to have bar stools there instead and make it a little breakfast bar as oppose to the current dumping ground it is right now.
Fridge Freezer. To do the above I would need to replace my current separate fridge and freezer with a combi one. I really like this swan one with the water dispenser again from Littlewoods.
Butterfly Table and Chairs So the idea is that by getting rid of the massive 6 seater dining table I currently have, I can use the new found space to not hoard clean washing but use it instead for the fridge freezer and this foldaway dining table. There for when I need it and able to be stored away when I don’t because lets face it, I don’t see myself holding any dinner parties soon! Again from Littlewoods.
Two Seater Sofa. This would be a comfy and welcome addition to my kitchen and I know my hairdresser would appreciate it when she comes round to do my hair! It has to be purple too and this one is currently in the sale too in Littlewoods, bargain!
What do you think? Would it work in this space below where my current dining table is, black and purple obviously! Please excuse the picture it was taken a while back on a Blackberry
Are you looking at sprucing up a room this year? Or are you wanting a complete overhaul of the whole house (I really need to do this!)
