A Kitchen Update....
Just spoke to my kitchen guy and looks like our new kitchen is almost ready - he'll be here to remove my current kitchen next week.
yayy! i cant wait!!

well i can wait for the mess that will be happening in my house but its going to be worth it as its not every day you get a new kitchen right?!
We've gone with a simple shaker style cabinet design in matte 'Antique White' and Im definetely having a subway tile splashback...
my kitchen guy suggested a sleek stone splashback ( my friend Julie said my kitchen guy has expensive taste haha)
but im a simple girl and the plan wasn't to go overboard
with the new kitchen as our budget was tight... id be very very happy with a subway tile splashback.
i love the classic look of them anyway!

We did however fork out a little more for ceasar stone benchtop...now im getting giddy with excitement!

When we first thought about
a new kitchen, our discussed budget was ridiculously tight that we were too emabarassed to let them know but suprisingly
3 out of the 4 quotes we got, were under budget
so do shop around - it is possible to get what you want!!

stay tuned for Before and After shots!

  5. Hi. I came over from Lou Lous. So glad I did.
    Happy that you are getting a new kitchen and that you are splashing out in the right areas. We did a similar thing where we waited for tiles to come on sale and we were really happy with the splurge on Caesarstone.

  7. Yay- how exciting:) I think the Subway tiles are going to look great in your kitchen and dramatically cheaper. Perhaps the cabinetmaker was doing a bit of upselling- like would you like fries and a coke with that lol.
    I hope you have started to freeze lots of dinners for when the kitchen is in limbo. Good luck:)
