The Design Process

I’m pleased to say that the kitchen design is well underway. We’re a month into the twelve-month schedule, which means there’s just one more month of planning to go until we can knock down my kitchen and complete a full-scale kitchen replacement. For many people, the prospect of this would be daunting. If the money didn’t throw them off, they’d certainly be thrown off by the fact that I have tradespeople, renovators, designers and builders at my home twenty-four seven for two to three months a year. That’s a long time to have people in your space. I personally love it, but I definitely understand how/why people wouldn’t. They’re just not as into kitchen design as I am. I doubt anyone could be, really.

I truly love kitchen renovations. I love forgetting about everything else in my life and just completely throwing myself into a renovation. It’s the perfect distraction from everything – the good, the bad and the ugly. It doesn’t matter what’s going on in my life, I can escape it. But that’s not what this blog post is about. It’s about how the kitchen design is going!

Based on the concept we’ve come up with so far, I think it’s safe to say that once this renovation is done, I will have the best kitchen design in Melbourne. The design will be featured in magazines across Australia and will be spoken about for the years to come. I might not even want to renovate a new kitchen this time next year. Maybe for the first time since I’ve had the funds to pay for a kitchen renovation every year, I will actively choose not to change it.

I can’t wait to see what my new kitchen looks like in the next couple of months. It would be incredible to be able to do some sort of big reveal with a few magazine journalists there as well.
