Every day that I wake up and go into the kitchen I wish that I had designed it differently. Twenty years ago when we were first coming up with ideas for our kitchen, I was idealistic and thought I would use my kitchen very differently from how I do now. The way it’s designed just isn’t functional enough.
When I was twenty years younger I thought it would be a good idea to put the fridge in the dining room. I thought it would be smart because then if we forgot anything, like tomato sauce, we wouldn’t have to go all the way back to the kitchen to get something. This was such a mistake. Why didn’t I consult a kitchen designer in the Melbourne CBD, which is literally so close to me, before I made that decision? It would have taken me two minutes to get the tram to their headquarters and ask them to review the designs. Younger me is the bane of my existence.
It took me about a year to realise that putting the fridge in the dining room wasn’t such a great idea. When the novelty wore off I got increasingly more frustrated with the design, and that frustration has reached maximum capacity this year. We’ve been spending more time at home lately for obvious reasons, and now every day I wish that I could just get completely new kitchen renovations. Close to Melbourne, it’s not hard to find a good renovator, the only thing that’s holding me back is the money. I could afford the kitchen renovation but that would mean I can’t go on another holiday for a couple of years. I’m not sure if I’m ready to give that up.
I’m going to think about this for a couple more weeks and then consider my next steps. Maybe I’ll consult my husband and see what he thinks. Bye until then!
