My Number One Tip For Choosing Your Dream Kitchen

So, my sweets, we’ve begun The Big Build!!! 

Yes, we’ve been saving our pennies since moving to our Georgian home and the time has come!!! It’s an amazing, rambling house and I feel very lucky to live here but it has needed a lot of work to turn it into the family home of my dreams.

I’ll be sharing every step of the way with you… the ups and downs, the trials and the tribulations. How do you choose an amazing builder? How do you pick the perfect scheme? How do you afford your dream kitchen? How do you need to treat an old house?

Are you wanting answers to all these questions and more? You’re in the right place, my poppets. If there’s one thing I know how to do, it’s research the be-jingles out of anything interiors-related!!

Let’s take a lovely gentle route in and feast our eyes on some kitchen beauties, shall we?

I’ve saved these kitchen images over the years and here begins my first lesson for you…. If you know you’ve got a big project ahead then start filing away those precious inspiration pictures a looooong time before you need them. Why? Because it’ll help you to see what dates over time.

You see, it’s so easy to be wept along by the latest fancy trends but when it comes to kitchen designs in particular, you want to be choosing something pretty classic.

ON trend today most definitely equals OFF trend in five or so years time and a good kitchen should last sooooo much longer than that.

By all means bring in your current favourite looks with accessories – I’m most definitely not sniffing at passing fashions – and love them to bits while they make you happy but know, with smug satisfaction, that while those accessories may need to be packed away, your gorgeous, timeless kitchen will never look old and tired, if you choose with one eye on the long game.

Most of the kitchen twinkliness I share here on Modern Country Style falls into exactly that category. Gorgeous flagstones, Shaker style units, softly muted shades: these things NEVER get old.

And that’s the kind of home I want to run home to. 

Each day. Every day.

Take Care Till Next Time,
