Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with an actual Ikea Kitchen - here's some pics of some that I think look amazing:
So we purchased the Ikea cabinets and have since kitted them out with all the Ikea bells and whistles:
... and are now up to the part where we need to choose a style of door/drawer profile. After much deliberation we have decided to go quite simple here's our inspiration pics and plans:
We have also been shopping and researching Kitchen Aapliances like crazy. I had a hard time deciding between the Smeg 90cm stand alone and the Ilve:

So we now have an oven - very happy lady!
Next we started looking at dishwashers. I was adamant I wanted a fully integrated dishwasher so you couldn't see it was there, I am not keen on them looking like a feature unless it is a super duper fancy one. Last night we finally settled on the Ikea integrated dishwasher, it was $800 and is made by Whirlpool. I must admit the main reason I purchased it was the standard 5 year warranty it came with, I joked with the lady when we bought it and said I should just tell my employer to start paying my pay direct into their accounts! feels like that at the moment. Anyhow here's the Ikea dishwasher:
So as you can imagine all of the above has kept us super busy at the moment but whilst doing this we have also been working on our walk in wardrobe, fence for the herb garden, front batwing doors and fixing the cladding on the exterior of the house! So busy...I'll leave with some final pics of what else we have been up to, sleep when your dead so they say...
