I am red-hot kitchen

Sion and I spent the best part of 2 hours after work yesterday in MFI, trying to work out a design for our new kitchen with their kitchen consultant. The design they worked out all looked very shiny in the end, and sounds like a good deal price-wise (especially as they have a "45% off if you order before 18/12/02" offer on at the moment), but I think we need to get a couple of other suggestions worked out (either on our own or with other designers) before we go ahead with it.

Personally though I just can't wait to have real cupboards and drawers in our kitchen, however they're configured! For those who haven't seen it, our kitchen is huge but seems to have been designed so as to get the smallest amount of storage possible into the space available. (For example, there's only one drawer in the entire kitchen.) It's also orange, which while it may have a certain degree of 70s chic is a far cry from the metallic monochrome that I'm dreaming of.

I can't believe how expensive decent ovens and hobs are, though. Looked through a catalogue last night and every time I pointed at one and said "that's nice" it turned out to be the most expensive of the lot. I guess I should be pleased that my taste is that refined...
