Y Gegin

Y gegin is Welsh for 'the kitchen', which is what I'm thinking about at the moment. Our new house has a teeny tiny kitchen that we are going to extend in a few years time, so we need to design a dros dro (temporary) kitchen that has maximum storage, and is easily-wipe-down-able. This is because I'm a skinflint who won't pay to have a damproof course done in the kitchen walls, as we are going to knock them down in 2 years time!
I've seen some lovely (and cheap) galvanised shelving units in Ikea. They're £6.99! I want them to store food - cans and things like that.

I love this tiny kitchen redesign. It's actually smaller than our kitchen! If you Google image search 'small kitchen ideas', all the kitchens are huge, not small at all - so I was really pleased to see a proper tiny kitchen, and it's just lovely.

No good for my kitchen, but I love this idea of using an old chest of drawers as an island. I've filed it away in my head for future use.

I designed the tiny kitchen with the toile fabric. It was done for a show house and was lots of fun. Just make sure your fabric is treated for stain resistance before you apply it to your cabinets.

I'm glad you like my design
