KITCHEN DETAILS IN MY NEW HOME

I got so many questions about my kitchen yesterday after posting this photo on Instagram, I´ll give you the details here – and yes, I will show you the whole room as soon as it is finished. Still some work left to do from the carpenters and the electricians. And I’ve got some painting to do.

First of all, I couldn’t be more happy with my kitchen and the way it turned out. A long prosess of researching, visiting showrooms and gathering inspiration, you all know how it is I finally decided for an Ikea kitchen with fronts from Ask og Eng. The fronts is made from bamboo and stained in a color called Coal. The color is a very dark brown hue, almost black. A beautiful contrast to the Dinesen floors and light walls. Ask og Eng has their studio in Drammen here in Norway and everything is made at the joinery there.

The herringbone floors are from Dinesen, called Dinesen Grand Pattern. They are treated with lye and white oil and are so soft, so warm and simply a dream to walk on.

My counter top is a material called Silestone. The color is Lagoon, with the surface called Suede. You can also have the surface polished but I prefer the matte finish. Countertop delivered by Eassystone. And then the color of the wall.. If you follow my Instagram you might remember that I repainted the kitchen walls after my first choice? The color looking super nice in my previous home just didn’t work out here and I chose LADY 1928 Sommersne from Jotun instead. Its very light warm grey and looks so nice with the other materials and colors in the room. Plus working well with the darker color in the living room. I´ll get back to that one.

    Måtte du skjøte benkeplaten, eller fikk du den som hel lengde? Hvordan ble skjøten i såfall?

      Jeg har en skjøt i platen, hele veggen er fire meter lang. Skjøten ble bra, lite synlig. :)

    Nydelig kjøkken, tusen takk for inspirasjonen!

    Vi skal pusse opp kjøkkenet vårt, og er i fasen der vi prøver å sette sammen materialer. Den benkeplata i silestone, vet du hvordan den tåler vanlig familie-slitasje (riper, flekker, osv…)?

    Gleder meg til å se resten :)

      Tusen takk, så hyggelig du liker det.
      Så langt kun positive erfaringer med Silestone. Den skal motstå flekker veldig godt (er ikke porøs),
      og tåler generelt mye. Både av varme kjeler og skarpe gjenstander.
      Lykke til med alle valg og oppussing!

    Så fint du får det i det nye hjemmet ditt! Jeg blir så inspirert av siden din, er innom hver eneste dag for å se om du har postet noe nytt og spennende. Dette har du nok fått spørsmål om tidligere, men jeg finner ikke noe om det; hvor er det fantastiske spisebordet ditt fra? Så fint!
    Klem, G

      Hei Gunnhild! Så koselig å høre :)
      Bordet fikk jeg laget etter egne tegninger for noen år siden, understellet av smed
      her i Oslo og marmorplaten fra Granitop.
      Klem Elisabeth

    Hi Elisabeth

    Loving your kitchen. I’m going to use Silestone too for our kitchen. May I ask you what brand is your black faucet and whether you know where I could source a white one (besides Vola or Ikea). Thanks Karine

      Hi Karine,
      Thank you! My faucet is from Vola. Dornbracht might have some white taps too. Good luck on your kitchen –
      best, Elisabeth

    Thanks Elisabeth, may I ask you one more question…What’s the model/brand of your extractor? Never seen one boxed like this in shops only on Pinterest :-)
