Well lit



Another photo of the finished kitchen. This shot was taken at night - about 20 minutes ago actually - and I noticed that all the lightbulbs under the cupboards were working. This is possibly the first time in over a year that there hasn't been one or two blown. Yup, another productive day from Rob who's been fiddling with teeny tiny bulbs.

In other house related news, the tenants at our flat are moving out after two years. I've got a friend who's a painter/decorator popping round to give us a quote. Rob wasn't keen, arguing that new tenants would just ruin the new paint job within a few months, but with a combination of London pollution and Blu-tack the walls have definitely seen better days. It was last painted seven years ago. (Actually, the walls at our current house could do with a tart up and we've lived only here for two years, but that's what happens when you have kids...)

Nice kitchen! I've always admired kitchens with good lighting. I love your cabinet, it gives off a classic look. As I looked in the lights I also notice how your floor matched your kitchen.Floor stores offer a variety of designs and types; but thanks to your blog I think I already know how my kitchen should look like. I m excited to have my own kitchen which is lit well, surrounded by good furniture and of course with a shiny and beautiful flooring. Thanks for sharing.

We also had this idea of lighting up the kitchen counter by installing a small fluorescent light bulb or two under the cupboard, and we're just waiting for the guys who'll do the remodeling (MN).

I can't help but say I love the color accents of your kitchen!

Yes, beautiful kitchen with eye-catching color amalgamation. I also have a high regard for spaces with proper light facility especially kitchen area. Proper light and exposure to air is essential otherwise there could be suffocation hitch.
