I have kitchens on my mind this morning, as for most of the weekend I've been without hot water in both the laundry & kitchen. The existing hot water heater that services those 2 rooms had been coughing & spluttering for the past month & finally took its last breath on Friday night. Not an issue most of you would say, just replace it Millie, but in this case its a real pain & the timing is woeful!
We had planned to replace it when we do the total gut & renovation of that area in the next 3 months, but it has obviously had the last laugh! Our overworked kettle has been boiling constantly to supply us with all our hot water. The old HWS was in a cupboard in the laundry, which was quite silly really, as it meant a huge loss of space in that room. That room will not exist shortly, so the new tank will have to go outside, but as MOTH had planned to rejig that whole area, he was out there scratching his head quite a bit yesterday, wondering just where it can go. So we'll probably have to buy the new HWS now, relocate it temporarily, plumb it in to the existing kitchen & then replumb it to all the new kitchen fittings early next year - grrrrrrrr!
I chose this kitchen today for one reason only - its huge amount of space!! Normally I adhere to the old Less is More theory, but on this occasion, that's going out the window! I reckon you could do complex Neurosurgery on that central bench without any trouble at all - that bank of lights are amazing! And while I'm on the subject of lighting, dear A-M over at The House That A-M Built has an on-going saga about the gorgeous lights she's coveting for her new kitchen, it makes for fun reading!
