Living with a Small Kitchen Layout

The installation of electricity in our new house was finished and the power outlet were already installed so they finally moved the fridges in our kitchen.  It was good but seeing how our kitchen looks like after moving the appliances, it was not what I expected. Our kitchen looks very small and as if you can’t moved around anymore,  this is not what I have planned or what I want to look like.


Well, we can’t do nothing anymore because the lot where we built our house is not that wide that’s why we are planning to construct second floor, my mother planned to move the second fridge in the second floor too.

Some of the thing you can see around like the television, books and other small items on display are just temporary on their location while we are not yet done with the construction.

Kitchen Tiles and Improvement

My family finally moved to our new home after the typhoon Yolanda struck our country.  The tiles in our living room was already installed so they just sleep there and use extension wire from our old house so they have lights. Yeah, right the electrician was not yet done installing all the wires in our home because he seldom visit, he just visit when he is free from his regular job.

Kitchen Design

I was informed that tiles were already installed in our kitchen, the tiles matched the floor kitchen doors like I wanted. What is left to be done in our kitchen is wall cabinets and buying a cooking oven to fill the gap as well as exhaust fan or hood. Hopefully I could earn enough money so we could done more improvements to our new home.
