Today the glass splash-back was finally installed after many weeks of delay. It was the final piece of the puzzle to fall into place and the kitchen is now complete! Here is a set of “Before and After” shots for your viewing pleasure.
You can see that the door and window in this corner were blocked up in order for the kitchen to be built. The glass splash-back behind the cooker looks a little redder in the photo than it actually is. It matches the quarry tile floor. I have retained the servant’s bell and need to refurbish it. The boiler was moved upstairs and the chimney breast demolished.
The Welsh dresser in the photo above belonged to the previous owner (this was one of the estate agent pictures). I like how we have a built in dresser/pantry in the same spot. It is traditionally where a dresser would have been in this room. The door to the left of the dresser conceals the servant’s rear staircase.
