In the last post I showed you the granite that I was considering for the counter tops in the kitchen. Here are the 3D plans for the kitchen showing the layout. The cupboard doors and some of the features will look a little different so it’s really just for the purposes of understanding where everything will go. There is a double sink by the window and the dishwasher will go in the unit to its right. The doorway pictured is the one that leads through into the breakfast room. In the corner to the left by the window will go the kettle, toaster, coffee machine etc., or possibly this will be the main preparation area – I will have to see how it feels when I get in there.
Along this wall there is the range cooker. There will be six large drawers for utensils, pots and pans etc. The pairs of wall mounted cupboards on either side of the range will actually be part-glazed. Instead of the stainless steel chimney extractor there will be an integrated extractor set into a mantel-type set up.
Finally, next to the servants’ staircase door is a built in dresser/pantry arrangement. The kitchen is too small for an island counter in the centre but when we move in I will see whether a butcher’s block or something like that will fit in the space.
In this brochure picture you can see the actual doors we will be having. That’s the right colour too: ‘Mussell’. Can you see how some of the doors have glazing on the top part? We’re having that too. You can also see the mantle set up above the range cooker.
