The Full Source List For My Kitchen!

I’m back! Happy New Year! I hope you had a lovely festive season, and perhaps a bit of a break. 

Mine was lovely; we had family at our house for Christmas, and my husband cooked up an absolute storm. The first Christmas lunch cooked in our new kitchen, so it was really put through its paces, and worked a treat.

We had a new family member join us on the 16th of December - Cleo the kitten, who is equal parts beautiful sweet fur-ball, and insane gremlin. We love her.

Oh, and I got a brilliant early Christmas gift when I was included in Stella's 50 trend-setting women you need to follow in 2018, alongside some pretty incredible poeple like Alexa Chung and Nigella Lawson, so you know, no biggie!

Anyway, I’m READY to tackle 2018. It’s going to be a busy and exciting one that’s for sure...

Now this post is really overdue. I’ve been promising it for months, but I have to admit that I took on a little more than I could comfortably chew in the last few months of the year, and had too many deadlines hanging over my head, and that meant several posts I’d really wanted to write got shelved.

But here it finally is! I’ve tried to include the source for pretty much everything in the kitchen here in one post as I’ve had so many questions. If I’ve forgotten anything just ask in the comments below, and I’ll add it.

I’ve also made a few updates to the kitchen since the Reveal post - the extractor hood finally went in, some lovely shallow ledges went up along the cooker side, and a black metal picture ledge with hooks went up on the sink side. I think these additions really finish the room off, though no doubt things will continue to evolve in there!

A few people have also asked what the room dimensions are: it’s 2.7m wide, by 5.35m long.

Okay, enough rambling...

The original Reveal post as part of our Revamp Restyle Reveal project is here, if you haven't seen it and would like to see some more pictures (and I'm not including all the images again here, so refer back if you need to see all products listed). Many of the products below were gifted, and are marked with an asterix.

Just shout if you have any questions!

Fab Five - Chopping Boards

I'm confused. What's the generic term for chopping / bread / cheese / serving / boards?  Is it just boards? Surely not. Whatever we call them, I don't have enough.

Lately I've been mentally filling the fictitious open shelves in my kitchen. I've talked a good fight about them, but still not actually done anything about making them real. So for now they live only in my over-active imagination.

Nice boards is something that would be on them. The open shelves that is. And this much is true: you do need different boards for different things. Yes, see above - chopping (meat/veg), bread, cheese and serving.

I definitely don't have any that just look pretty. Certainly nothing that I would serve cheese on to guests at a dinner party. I have a breadboard for um, bread. Another two smaller wooden ones that are both actually a too small to be particularly useful, and two plastic ones used for chopping non bread kind of stuff. See? Not enough.

And now I feel I've also publicly shamed myself with my lack of board prowess. My board collection is clearly seriously lacking and inadequate. And does anyone other than me actually have plastic chopping boards these days? Surely we should all be using beautiful marble boards for everything. I need to bin the plastic, don't I?

These would fix my board woes. I'll have one of each please...
