Kitchen Extension Ideas

So we are about to take on one of the biggest projects of our lives (other than bringing up a small human being) and renovate an entire house that will hopefully become the family home we’ve dreamed of.

My Wow Kitchen

As you may know by reading this blog, I am into interior design and we’ve enjoyed doing-up our Victorian terraced house over the last two years. We completely re-vamped the kitchen and the bathroom, making them more modern but still with nods to victorian design. We re-decorated the living room and bedrooms too, with a fresh lick of paint in blue/grey hues and some cool lighting. We also added a basement conversion, which was the biggest (and most stressful) project of them all, but makes the world of difference as we now have a self-contained ensuite spare bedroom (which doubles as an office when it’s just us).

Our terraced house is limited on space though and there’s no room to extend in any way. So sometimes, I do find myself day-dreaming about a bigger house and the one thing that always comes to the forefront of these day-dreams, is a big family kitchen. A wow kitchen!

This was the biggest project so far and we’ve finally started decorating and putting our personal touches on the basement conversion (more posts to come on that). Continue reading
