My kitchen is not a thing of great beauty, but as the amount of worktop space I have was mentioned yesterday I thought I'd show you. Excitement.
As I said in the comments yesterday, there are a couple of sections of worktop, either side of the sink that are pretty much useless for cooking, just for washing up to sit. I try to not let washing up sit there as the kitchen is at the front of the house and looks horrible from outside. We don't have a dishwasher.
The long length of worktop is 4 feet/120-odd cms. I mainly chop over near the cooker though.
The hob covering chopping board is fairly new and I love it, it gives me loads more space (it was about £10 from Ikea). so that's all that lives on my surfaces - coffee machine, this has only just come out as Dan drinks more coffee in the Autumn and Winter, the kettle, chopping board, salt and pepper shakers, spoon rest and utensils. It's a bit more than I'd like, but I use these things every day.
The fridge freezer, if anyone was wondering, is behind where I took these pictures, in the dining area. We are currently in discussions about getting an under counter fridge and removing the fridge freezer to give us more space. the fridge would live where the gorgeous bin/recycling area is currently.
So there you have it!
