The tiles on the wallspace between the kitchen countertop and the upper cabinets, as well as in the kitchen stove area, are high-gloss polished marble tiles, type Hermelin Gray. The stone is delivered by Ankerske Naturstein AS.
Casings in the kitchen are, as in the rest of the house, wide, profiled and painted white.
The kitchen has ceiling spotlights, spotlights under the upper cabinets and inside the vitrine cabinets (cookbook cabinet, spice cabinet etc.).
The kitchen interior is made of beechwood, manufactured by Drømmekjøkkenet and painted in the color: light grey, semi-shine. Kitchen Hood, columns, vitrine cabinets, casings and the kitchen drawers next to the stove, are designed by me. I made technical drawings of the building construction and my husband, who has become quite a furniture carpenter, made the whole stove area based on my drawings. The kitchen countertop is granite, stone type Dark Labrador (stove area), otherwise dark grey.

Integrated, lockable, wine storage unit (Siemens) with two cooling zones for storing 30 bottles of red, and white, wine.

The kitchen is a "workplace" for both me and my husband. We love to cook, and we make mostly healthy food, - traditional mediterranean food based on fresh quality ingredients. No fastfood or semi-manufactured food products in our kitchen! We really enjoy ourselves in the kitchen, me and my husband alone together, or together with our friends. It is nice to cook together. We have many friends who take an interest in cooking, and on weekends we often meet to cook. While we cook we enjoy a glass of wine together, talk about the week that was, holiday plans and recipes. We listen to music at a comfortable volume, while we enjoy all the aromas of fruit, vegetables, fried meat or seafood, olive oil, chili and garlic, fresh basil and other spices from our own garden.
There are no chairs in our kitchen. In the kitchen we work, but our wonderful dining room is strategically placed next to the kitchen.
You can eventually read more about the dining room under the label "Translated into English" or "A presentation of rooms in my house". You can also read about our house building project and how it all began, under the label "12 years of hard work".
