As a family we spend a lot of time in our kitchen, cooking, chatting and playing games. It’s the hub of the house, the first place we’re all together in the morning, the place where we celebrate special occasions or just relax over a drink or two with extended family and friends, and the place where the kids bake, do homework and craft projects.
It’s also the room in the house that frustrates me the most as it’s perpetually messy, and I sometimes feel like I’m stuck in an endless loop of tidying it. We have matte black floor tiles which show up every little speck of dirt, I dislike them immensely, and would love to spent a lot less time cleaning and more time fully focussed on the kids or whoever is in the kitchen with me.
We recently visited IKEA for a new wardrobe, but got distracted by the amazing kitchens. I love the gorgeous worktops, and funky gadgets, the pop up knife block was a particular favourite. I’d really like an island which would give us much needed extra storage space and an extra worktop area that we are also quite short of. We came away from our IKEA visit ( the new store in Reading is amazing by the way ) full of ideas and inspiration. We just need to put them into action now.
