Renovation project - Tiling a French kitchen
John has found some jobs he can do without causing too much mess.
The kitchen units are in place and will definitely not be moving again! So he can now tile. The only problem is that we now have the completely wrong amount of tiles, we measured and bought them for our original kitchen idea.
We discuss whether or not to tile the opposite wall above the worktop, but both agree that this will be too much, I also think it could end up looking like a public toilet because of the style of tiles we have bought!
So we decide to leave it as it is, the other tiles will be needed for the kitchen corner in the little house so will not go to waste.
While we are waiting for the grout to dry, john fits the new plug socket, I really do not like to see plug sockets, don’t ask me why, it is just one of those things, so we bought a tower socket from Brico Depot (called Bloc Encastrable 4 Prises) that will fit in the work top. When needed it pops up and when finished with it, tucks back into the work top. It takes up very little space, but does mean we do not have to have plug sockets dotted along the wall.
These can be bought from many shops or on line and you can also buy them with usb connectors
It feels like we really have a kitchen now and cooking is so much better it’s hard to believe we had no kitchen at all only a few months ago and now we are onto the decorating aspects
