We are failing to save the kitchen that came with the house. The cabinets, which I spent 24 hours painting with flaxseed oil paint (and which took three days to dry), are literary falling apart. So we decided to do an upgrade and invest in a more practical and energy sufficient one. We are beyond excited since we spend most of our home time in the kitchen.
Since I don’t know much about electricity consumption I spent last night researching which dishwasher uses the lowest amount of water, and what fridge that needs the least amount of electricity. Might sound boring, but I had a blast reading about the new smarter machines. Another thing I’ll spend a lot of time planning is the recycle storage of the kitchen. I want to make it easier, FUN even, to recycle!
The pictures above are our inspiration. Since the kitchen and living room are a joint space we’d like the kitchen not to feel too much like a kitchen—if you know what I mean—rather like a big sideboard that happens to have a stove and an oven. That’s why we also decided not to have any top cabins this time, which also makes sense since we have a pantry downstairs where we store most our dried goods anyway. I know it will give us less storage in total, BUT, when I had a look through our kitchen, I realized that we have so much stuff that we never use stored, gathering dust. Not very sustainable having things one never use. I’ll have a big clean out this weekend and sell or give away all that is not used. Would love for you guys to share your dos and don’ts when it comes to kitchen remodeling!
