The kitchen hasn’t been changed much since being built, except for back when I was born and my parents added an extension to the house, expanding the kitchen and adding a balcony and another bedroom below. Since then it’s been painted cream, re-wallpapered a couples of times, and last year I (…aka Graeme) changed all the handles. It’s got a great size and gets tons of light, and it’s also got a pretty sweet view and opens up to a balcony overlooking the valley. I love having breakfast there in the morning as the sun rises behind the mountains.
More or less everything in the kitchen is going and will be replaced. There's still a couple of things we're still figuring out, like flooring and what we're doing with the extractor fan. The fan is connected to a motor in the attic which also connects to both the upstairs and downstairs bathroom, which meant that we weren't able to get it from IKEA along with the rest of our kitchen. Yep, if you're ever at mine and want to take a shower, you'll need to go into the kitchen to turn the fan on first. If anyone has any experience with this, suggestions are welcome!
