More "real world" cottage kitchen



The solid fuel stove was what we cooked on almost exclusively when we lived in the cottage for a while. There is no full size electric stove but the microwave and little benchtop oven and elements are adequate backup and now that we are there only in the summer the stove isn't used very much at all. It's wonderful on a cold day tho!

This 'business end' of the kitchen is to the left of the stove...


The concrete floor is new, unfortunately we had to remove the red brick floor that was there previously due to a number of problems. Still undecided whether or not to leave it 'as is' or paint or cover it in some way. Doesn't show in the photo but it has a good rough 'rustic' swirly finish so it's quite ok as is for the moment at least.

I love these pictures. We rummaged antique bricks from old buildings and used it as is and they were gorgeous. They lost some personality years later when they were painted over. :)

I love how even your groceries have a vintage feel.
