Polish plumber: Your kitchen is very old.
Me: Yes - it was here in the 1980s when we moved in. But it does the job - it's fine.
Plumber: You are delusional.
I spent my childhood lightweight camping. The kitchen is luxurious!
I'll raise you my mother's (Australian) kitchen - which was there when they moved in in the early 70s. When she once got someone to quote for updating it, they looked briefly then went into the dining room and started explaining how they'd move it ...
My parents actually put a 2nd storey on, so major renovations, in the 90s, but the kitchen works so it was left alone. Finally my mother is trying to pack up and sell up to move back to the UK, she's had some repairs and touch ups done, but other than repainting the cupboards the kitchen is the one thing being left for a buyer to decide what they actually want to do. Thing is, although it is small, one whole side is wooden cupboards, so the carcasses are less than half the thickness of modern MDF etc, and there is one set under the work surface and not one but two sets above up to a high ceiling. Very practical! I feel I have less storage in a slightly bigger kitchen despite having a pantry.
