The kitchen is finally getting there, one more cupboard door to paint along with some general wooden bits around the upper cabinets. Tomorrow the top right cupboard is coming off and if the wall doesn’t come down with it, the new open shelves are going up. I should imagine that my husband and Dad will get all gungho and probably take out the bottom one as well once they get going.
I have the name of someone to fit the new worktop, I just need to decide what it’s going to be and order that and a new sink and taps. I’m now thinking of paint colours and what fabric to have the blind made into? But MOST MOST importantly I AM GETTING A DISHWASHER!!!! I am 38 years old and I have never ever owned one, even when I lived at home we didn’t have one. I never have to wash up again, and yes I know that everyone says you argue about loading it – but I don’t care it’s still better than standing with your hands in crappy water for 40 minutes a day while the dog cuddles you – whether you like it or not!.
So now the important part – which one do I get?? Here’s the one I want and I know I won’t get because it’s ridiculously expensive:
I love this one, it’s got two separate drawers for lazy people like me who never put anything away, or do at the last minute. But at £929 it’s a pipe dream and I need to be less lazy!
This is the most beautiful dishwasher I have ever seen and I love it to death but once again insanely expensive at £803, and I can’t see me swaying my ever practical husband by saying ‘isn’t it so pretty in red?’. So I suspect it’s going to be a very dull, run of the mill Bosch dishwasher we end up with.
But I need your advice. What should I look for in the way of settings? Any models you recommend? Is noise a problem? What to avoid like the plague? What advice can you give to a dishwasher virgin?
