Choosing kitchen cupboards

Buying a house and moving can be very stressful but there are some parts that are fun as well. As we are buying the new house off plan we have been able to alter the layout a bit and we get to choose finishing details – and last week Richard and I went and picked the kitchen doors.

The style of kitchen doors had already been picked by the builders (Compton Homes), which is a wooden painted kitchen, so we only had to pick the colour and the worktop. They had some sample doors for us to pick from:

So we choose cream, well technically it is called Sand Beige, with a grey reconstituted stone worktop.

IMG_1948I’ve not had a worktop of reconstituted stone before, which (I think) is made from quartz bound together with a resin. it seems to have a lot of the advantages of solid stone but without some of the downsides (it is not porous so you can spill lemon juice on it). It will be interesting to see the finished product.

We don’t have to make any more decisions right now, the next ones will be bathroom wall and floor tiles and the carpets.
