We’ve been kitchen hunting in France and for some people (as you can tell from the photo above) it was more exciting than others. Wandering around kitchen showrooms, it is very hard to keep in mind that we will not necessarily be living in this house and it is very easy to get swayed by the shiny taps (again) and gloss white cupboards with the soft-close hinges. I have to remind myself that we can’t go for a very high end kitchen (but soft close hinges would be nice). It seems, however, we have been looking at kitchens at the right time of year because there are a lot of bargains to be had. So much so, that we actually bought one…..yes reader, we bought one- and it had soft close hinges. It will be delivered in April 2015, I just hope there is a house built to put it in. I think we will be putting the kitchen together ourselves, so if anyone fancies a holiday in France putting together flat pack furniture, just let me know. Hopefully, the kitchen will be so nice that people will want to spend time in it, at parties or otherwise.
