The new kitchen is almost done



We are slowly moving in to the main house. It’s not styled, not all done, still very empty, but we are getting there! I’m beyond happy about our new kitchen! (And I feel it deserves better pictures, but I was in a rush).

What a productive day. Started with a meeting with our contractor. After that I went into town (Linkoping) by myself, and in two hours I bought pots, pans, coffee maker, knifes and other things you can’t live without in a kitchen! I found showers for a bathroom and a faucet for the laundry, I picked up carpet samples, did some speed shopping at my favorite interior design store Esq, and picked out tile for a bathroom. I knew what I was looking for, and it happened to be right inside the door. That decision took me about 10 seconds, haha, they told me that was a record :)

In the afternoon we left our new house and drove to our other house in Smaland. It feels so nice and relaxing to be here where everything is done! The kids were also happy to see their toys and Eddie-Bo ran from the car to the sports court and started to play street hockey!

While the kids played my amazing mother in law came over, and gave me reflexology, how nice?! And it was well needed for my achy feet, I haven’t been still since… Miami I think :)

    I adore your kitchen! How long did it take you to plan, design, and have everything installed?

      Thank you!! Well… it’s not the easiest to renovate with the Atlantic in between! So it has taken longer because of that plus all prep work took long time, the carpenter has not been there all the time. But the design plan took a few weeks, and the kitchen company (Falerumkök) has been great! But about a year total….

    Fint det blir!
    Är det Silestone bänkskiva? Vi letar köksleverantör. Var er bra/ lätt att jobba med? Finns dem i Sthlm eller har återförsäljare?

      Vi har letat ljust golv och hittat ett från Kährs som heter Blonde, lite orolig över om det skulle bli blaskigt. Vad hittade du för golv? Påminner jätte mycket från det vi tittat på från Kährs.

        Detta är massiva långa brädor från Dinesen, just nu bara oljat el såpat… hjälp, ska kolla upp mer. Men, det känns som det måste mättas med fler lager, tror att det blir fläckigt om vi spiller. Och det funkar ju inte!
        Vi har ett ljust enstavigt vitlaserad ek Kährs i Småland, supernöjd, lika fint idag som för 10år sen när det var nytt.

      Tack! Ja, det är silestone. Kan varmt rekommendera det. Vi har marmor i USA, och den är så fin, men full med matta fläckar och repig efter 4,5 år. Silestone är tåligt och finns i massa olika färger och mönster. Vi har Falerumkök och är så nöjda med allt, grymma!
