How to make my kitchen extra special

I love my kitchen and spend a great deal of time in there.

It is big  and bright and uncluttered (well apart form my desk in the corner!) I cook and do the laundry in there, I work at a desk in the corner of the room. We eat in there, my children do their homework at the kitchen table and I craft in there too.

Such a well used room.

It is important therefore that it works for me and I really enjoy being in there. Much as I love it now there are a few things that would make it extra special.



I would absolutely love big beautiful sash windows so I could see out to the garden and be inspired to write.

Oh and this mint coloured Aga cooker is just so beautiful isn’t it and would be a dream to cook on. It would also keep the kitchen lovely and warm in the winter.

A real fireplace would just add such a glow and cosiness to the room too and I think that would be wonderful when the kids came in cold and tired from school.

Oh I would love to have a water softener unit. It would be great for the kitchen to be scale free (and it can save you up to 12% on your water heating bills) in fact it has so many benefits…here is some more information

Last but not least I would like a huge dining table (mind you would then probably need a bigger kitchen) so I can feed all my family and friends together rather  than people carrying plates to other rooms!

Oh what a difference these items would make to my kitchen!

Extra special.

    I cooked on an Aga when we went to a cottage, it drove me bananas, but it did fab jackets and the skillet was awesome!

    Had no idea Agas came in that colour or that water softeners saved money!

    I would absolutely love an Aga, I agree with Jen they can be tricky but solo beautiful.

    Oh I’d love an Aga in my kitchen too. Never cooked on one though, and they can be quite tricky can’t they?
