Kitchen renovation: From old to new!

ZMany of you have already noticed: We have moved! We needed more space and also more peace and quiet in our bedrooms! And we got all this in our new apartment. But also some renovation work, such as the pretty old kitchen row from the 90s, which belongs to the owner. In his time, the large terracotta tiles and the beech fronts were certainly very trendy. In the meantime, however, the ravages of time have gnawed at the fronts and I really couldn’t make friends with the old floor tiles – the 90s can just be so hip. But of course, as a DIY blogger, I am not deterred by this and have started planning our kitchen renovation. Of course, always keeping in mind that we only live here for rent and I have to put everything back to its original condition in case of doubt. For me the biggest aha and wow effect: The new vinyl floor from Gerflor, which I could lay directly on the old floor tiles without sticking! What can be changed easily and easily during a kitchen renovation in a rented apartment?

and also a heartfelt “Hello!” to my new readers!

With my topic today, I seem to have hit your nerve as well:

 the kitchen renovation

At the end of November I had already told you that the kitchen is being painted here

….not only the walls, no… that would be much too easy, but also kitchen fronts and even the worktops got a new coat of paint.

Many mails and comments have reached me on this point…..and I hope that I can answer all your questions today.

I have NEVER shown pictures from my kitchen here and there was a reason for that:

What did it look like before? well….originally the fronts were beech-coloured, as was the worktop. Then – about 2 years ago – we decided to give her a new face and painted the fronts white….big mistake….because the used paint (which has always and everywhere served us very well), was not really suitable for a kitchen renovation.
