Before And After…

Last month, I mentioned that work had begun on the new kitchen. While there are still a few finishing touches to be done, the bulk of the work is over, and we have a new working kitchen that both of us are very pleased with.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

    Bravo.  For the record, I am completely in love with the cooktop and oven.  Followed shortly by the deep sinks.  Congratulations on surviving a remodel!

    Yup, I wanted a decent-sized oven, and that was the excuse to have the five gas rings on the top. They’ve become quite popular since we last chose a kitchen, so there’s plenty of choice these days. Unfortunately, most of them are total ergonomic disasters. Most of them either have the wok burner in the middle – which means that then you can’t fit any pans on the other burners, or the pan supports are so streamlined and dinky that you can’t slide a pan to the side while you’re working. This ATAG unit, thankfully, doesn’t suffer from either of those problems.
     
    The sinks were an indulgence. Probably stainless steel would have been more practical, but we liked the traditional look of white ceramic. And that’s reinforced by the choice of the granito worktops.

    Lovely, let me in!  I’ll be your sous-chef.

    Coboró, if you ever find yourself in the Achterhoek, then let us know!
