I love cooking and I am lucky enough to be surrounded by very willing family and friends who are happy to be guinea pigs for me.
The kitchen in the new house has been a bit of splurge and I really can’t wait to use it. We have designed it so that it is very open and will be the ‘hub’ of our home.
We have chosen all Siemens products because they have a good reputation, great 5 year warranty and I love the look and range.
Baking is a frequent occurance in our house as our daughter enjoys cooking too so we decided on two built-in wall ovens. I didn’t’ go for the top of the range with all the programmes because to be honest I never use most of the programmes.
This will be baking in our oven soon – I hope!
I had a good look at the new Induction hobs and was very impressed by the demos that I saw and loved the idea of melting chocolate at such a low heat that you didn’t have to worry about burning it.
I just couldn’t get my head around not cooking with gas so my very generous better half indulged my whim for having gas too so now we are cooking!!
Of course I needed a dishwasher for all those dishes as washing up is one of my least enjoyable chores.
I love the all white modern kitchens but with the grey stone tile on the floor I thought it might be a bit cold so we have chosen white and moose cabinetry (see interior selections) with Essastone Bone white benchtops and Essastone Basalto island. I am envisioning the kitchen looking something like this ………
We now wait for a quote from the cabinet maker and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it is not too much over budget and we will be able to have a 100mm profile on the island benchtop.
I also had a long window splashback on my wishlist and we’ve been able to achieve this in our design. There will be louvred windows on each side of the main pane of glass and hopefully there will be jasmine growing on the fence directly opposite 🙂
