cucina dei puffi

The small kitchenette is installed

Since the kitchen seems so small, CC said that it looks like
"una cucina dei puffi"
a kitchen for smurfs
eine Kueche fuer Schluempfe
une cuisine pour les schtroumpfs

This funny impression gave me the colour solution for the fridge: smurf blue

You see, the fridge is still missing.

So far we have : 
a standard sink and additional small sink, a gas stove, a microvae, a tiny working space of 30 x 60 cm, a waste bin storage and some drawers. The top is one entire steel surface and was choosen by CC. He also absolutely wanted the microwave. He even knows how to cook with it.

My idea was to integrate the bulky microwave inside the lower kitchen part instaed of putting it on the (not available) work space or on a shelf.

Also my idea was not to have an L-shape kitchen, as it would be too much kitchen that I did not want to have here in the attic. We do have a main kitchen on the ground floor and should use that one. Here a pantry would have been far enough. Also instead of having a kitchen island that would allow breakfast and add work space, I decided that we are more flexible here with a table and chairs.

Until the rest of the house is finished we will be able to live in the attic with a bathroom and kitchen. Later we could have guests staying here independently or even rent this part out. That was the idea behind having the 6th bathroom and 3rd kitchen here.

I should have noted here right away our source. Now I had to search through old emails to find this info:
We bought the kitchen in Maida from ALINDAR CUCINE, the model is LENA PANNA and we changed the handles to those from ALBERTA, inox top including sink and stove by ARISTON.
