here's the floor plan.

We shifted the stove to be perpendicular to the window.

The original stove area is now our sink area.

Funz, would you recommend the carpenter who did your kitchen renovation?

I am still thinking whether I should have another set of top hang cabinet.

Frankly speaking I do not really like this house.

The living hall and study room are facing East, very hot.

Ah boy's bedroom has both morning and afternoon heat coming inside at an angle.

Thanks for all the kitchen top ideas. Very handy for Porky's next house. Hopefully it will be as big as Funz's.

Cleared some items from the utility room, re-organised it and the storeroom. Now both rooms r pleasing to my eyes :wink:

Going to clear the bookshelves later.

With so many recipes readily available on internet, I am deciding whether I still want to keep those recipe books?

I went with an ID this time as I realise that the work to be done is more than just carpentry. Needed to do some rewiring too as I dismantled the old display cupboard and TV console.

Will not recommend this fella. Until now work still not completed. To be fair partly my fault. Then again, he saw the things we had yet he did not take that into consideration when he proposed the design and from the onset, I kept telling him I need display area, not storage. He kept pushing is design and on paper, to someone who is spatially challenged, it looks like there are enough display so I okayed the design. But when they installed some of the stuff, I realise there is literally no display area so I stop the work and we went back to the drawing board to redesign a particular portion.

Workmanship ok, but designer does not listen to customer's need. Keep pushing their idea.

I drew up my own kitchen layout n gave to the ID then. Still there are regrets. I had wanted sliding door, but hubby could not agree. In the end, I had to settle for swing in glass door that takes up space IMO

Jennifer,

Like the colour scheme of your kitchen. Very calming :smile:

But where do you store your appliances?

I have the cupboards, but still find space not enough :oops:
