I love our kitchen. The view out our kitchen window is one of the main reasons we bought our home. The orchard outside has lambs, calves and their mums in May-October and I love watching them out the window.
Our kitchen probably looks fairly average but I think it's special by what it doesn't have, than by what it does. We have very few mod cons. We have a cooker, a washing machine, a fridge freezer and a hand blender, and that's about it on the electrical front. We don't have a microwave, food processor, dishwasher, tumble dryer or any other kitchen appliances. I try and keep the kitchen as clutter free as possible. Dh hates the sides looking messy so he helps to keep things tidy. I have a hob top whistling kettle, which at the moment is a repro, but I have my eye out for a vintage original. The pics are a bit dark because it's sunny outside so I hope they're ok.
|When we moved in the kitchen had torn pink lino on the floor that was ripped into several pieces. We now have proper flooring down.|
|This is my Grandma's gorgeous Welsh dresser and one of my favourite pieces of furniture.|
|The inside of the cupboards are pretty well organised. I sort them out regularly.|

In the long term I would love a Smeg fridge freezer as I love the look of them but our current one was free so I will run it until it needs retiring. How does our kitchen compare to yours?
