No offence to anyone with tiled worktops, but we couldn’t bare ours anymore. They were particularly bad, with blue grout and very deep gaps, so deep that I had to clean them with a dustpan and brush or the vacuum on occasions. So a few weeks ago, out they came and it was lovely to see the worktops disappear and taken to the tip. The only thing left after our ripping out session is the sink and a couple of cupboards. We also decided to sell the wood burning stove. It was lovely, but because we’ve bought a range oven and hob we didn’t need it, so we are going to buy a wood burner instead. More pics to follow as we progress.
