The Kitchen Demolition - Day 1

The first part of the kitchen our builder started on is the removal of the wall between the hallway & kitchen (highlighted below) & the chimney breast over the cooker.

See images below....

As you can see the wall has now been completely removed.

It has made such a difference, it's now very open, there's a lot more light & its created a direct link to the rest of the house, making it easier to be more social when you have guests over.

The Chimney breast over the cooker & pantry has also been removed.

When designing our kitchen so many of the designers mentioned that customers pay to have a chimney breast like this built in.

The chimney would have been great if we wanted a country look but we've chosen a modern, sleek, handle-less kitchen so the chimney has to go!!

My husband saw this as a perfect opportunity to put his dart board up without having any worry's about damaging surrounding walls (although to be fair he's a pretty good shot anyway)..

The pantry has been removed & the small window has been bricked up.

The next step is to remove the ceiling, flooring & cupboards... tbc
