Sunday was part one of ‘The Big Move’. We loaded up our cars full of kitchen utensils, appliances and cleaning products and made our way to our new house.
The kitchen is almost complete apart from the tiling and a few extra bits such as flooring (fiancé is a flooring fitter so thats always helpful) but other than that it’s all ready and waiting. First thing was to wipe down our cupboards and kitchen surfaces. For this we used Flash Liquid Gel – All Purpose Cleaner which is quite honestly amazing stuff. It has a cap on the bottle so that you can’t use too much. I suppose it’s similar to that of a drink optic (sad that thats the only thing I could think of to compare it to, hah).
You can see in the picture, we have white shiny cupboards a modern worktop and there are spaces for our dishwasher, washing machine & dryer. Everything looks so lovely & clean which I love cos I’m a total anti-bacterial freak!
A new guest in our kitchen. Meet our Voodoo knife block. You can buy yours from Firebox.com but hurry because there are only a few of them left and they’re currently 20% off too! Was £79.99 Now £63.99! Get yours here!
Our plates, as pictured above, are from the designer ‘Ben de Lisi’ purchased from Debenhams. However, from my extensive internet searches it seems that they are unavailable to purchase (which is a shame because I would love to get my hands on a couple more bowls). You can get white ones though if you are interested in the style.
The Cook’s Collection Trays (top left) are a Sainsbury’s miracle. I love them. They are such brilliant quality and really heavy too; prices range from £7-£15 per item and that may seem a little pricey but as soon as you pick one up you’ll know it’s worth it. Just by reading through the reviews, it becomes apparent that they’re really good! The same goes for our copper bottom pans (top right) also Sainsbury’s. Pricey but an investment!
The Prestige 5 Piece Pan Set in Red (bottom right) was an absolute steal from Argos! I believe you can only get these particular pans in black now, however you can’t really go wrong for £54.99. Link is here!
This De’Longhi microwave (900w) was a present bought for us by our family. Purchased from Argos for £79.99, it’s a great addition to our red themed kitchen. It makes me so happy whenever I look at it and it even has a pre-set program especially for popcorn – it knows me so well!
Our luck didn’t just stop there, we also received a Kenwood KMix Food Processer in Red. (FPX931) It has a 3 litre capacity and has all the trimmings. The cheapest I could find online is £159.99 from cheapelectricals.co.uk it looks to be a good food processor, the reviews are really good and I can’t wait to use it!
The final thing to show you is our amazing, super buy mugs! They are a pretty good match to our plates and dishes but a fraction of the price. A set of 4 mugs will set you back only £5.99 from Argos. Get yours here.
Thanks for stopping by, have you bought any beautiful colour items for your kitchen? If so, let me know! I’d love to see what you’re kitchens are like.
