We had only been moved in for less than 24 hours when the old kitchen was ripped out! We knew we wanted white and grey, so off we went to IKEA to look around their showrooms! The cupboards and doors are all from IKEA and they are so helpful in store, they have a 3D planning software that means you can design what you wanted and they can tell you exactly what you will need – Mr Rackley actually installed most of this kitchen himself (with some help from my uncle!)

The cupboards are the Ringhult white gloss range from IKEA and the worktops are grey sparkle quartz (think its called platino quartz) fitted by a lovely company called Topsco!

We bought the handles from eBay though as the IKEA ones were only matt and we wanted polished chrome:

All of our appliances, apart from the kettle (pictured) and coffee machine live in a kitchen cupboard and come out when needed then get put back! I hate having too much stuff on the surfaces. We have so many kitchen gadgets, if they were all out I would have no surface left haha – crepe maker, waffle maker, slow cooker, bread maker, grill machine, juicers etc.

Our “kettle” is called a breville one cup, it boils one cup of tea instantly at a time – wouldn’t go back to a normal kettle now, it’s so much easier and quicker!

The canvas is a Christmas edition and twinkles!

Canvas – the Range (£7.99)

The floor tiles were from wickes and were called white gloss porcelain floor tiles but don’t seem to be online anymore.

Easiest way to keep them clean I find is with a good steam mop! My fave is the Shark kick’n’flip as it doesn’t leave the floor soaking wet and streaky!

This bar area is our most used part of the kitchen, it’s so useful when preparing food, playing on the laptop, unpacking shopping etc!

All appliances came from AO.com – they delivered the next day and installed immediately!

The kitchen clock is always very popular! I was’t entirely sure about this clock when it first went up because it looked so big, but it’s definitely grown on me! We’ve angled it 40cm from the centre, there’s a little post about how to put it up – here

We have put LED light strips along the tops and under the cabinets that change colour – these are the same as the ones behind the TV’s:

  1. Hey. Just a few questions about your lights in your kitchen. Where do you have the plinth lights and under/top cabinet lights plugged into so they are out of sight? Thanks xx

  2. Hi, I love your kitchen floor so much I have bought shiny tiles for my porch! However, the fitter doesn’t think these are a good idea, do you find them slippery at all?x

  3. Hi, do you know where the company Topsco are based?
    I’m from the North-West so wondering if they are based in this area as the website says London.
    LOVE your kitchen – in face your whole house is amazing!! xx
