In my previous post I shared with you our kitchen makeover. The bonus with our new home, was that the kitchen came with a separate scullery leading off the kitchen. How perfect for hiding those dirty dishes when people are over? Although it is quite small and narrow, it was lacking personality and storage space.
We stripped off all the cabinets, wall tiles and decided to marry the scullery to the kitchen. So it got new cabinets, matching floor to ceiling metro tile walls with silver corner finishes and granite tops. The budget for this room was small so we didn’t fuss too much with finicky details. The double sink was in relatively good condition so we gave it a good polish and introduced it to our new tap fixture. This duo made the sink look like new and brought it back to date. The floors were also redone and seamlessly screeded through to the kitchen and rest of downstairs.
The previous home we were in had polished concrete floors and because they were so easy to clean we said that when we had the opportunity, our next home would have to have the same. It’s a dream to keep clean as there is no dirt that gets stuck in any grouting lines, and it just gives the room a contemporary clean finish.
The floor process took about 4 weeks as it was vital for our new concrete slab to completely dry in order to prevent bubbling of the floor technique and epoxy which goes on top.
To improve the storage issue in the scullery, we replaced the old cabinets under the sink for us to put cleaning products and opposite this we put a floor to ceiling cabinet which serves as a broom cupboard and a grocery cupboard. All the cupboards in the scullery were done with the same black wood wrapping technique that is present in the kitchen.
Below are some images of our scullery makeover
The scullery was a relatively stress free renovation and it makes such a big difference. By us matching it to the kitchen, it flows well and looks visually appealing when you look through from the kitchen.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this transformation. Until our next room reveal
