Almost There

I thought I'd get one last post in before Septmeber is over.  We havant been able to get in the house for a while.  Our floors have gone in downstairs and we are pretty pleased with the flooring. A little darker than we thought but this is also due to the lighting in some of the rooms.
After several dramas with our floor selection and after extensive research and quotes we decided to go with vinyl floor planks in 'Omega-Espresso Oak'.  We initially selected timber flooring but we were not keen on having expansion joints throughout the home, then we were going to go with a timber look tile, but hubby wasn't completely sold on the idea.  I then stumbled across this new product and everything was positive about the vinyl planks from what I read so vinyl timber planks it was.  They are so much better than what we were expecting.

When we first drove by our place and saw the first coat of paint in the garage, we were not too impressed with our colour choice, it looked a little on the creamy side.  We upgraded to a '3 coat paint system' instead of the standard 2 coats.  Now that it has been finished, we are really happy with it.

We chose:

- 'Elusive White' for our ceilings
- 'Winter Ice' for our main wall colour
- 'Flinstone' for our Home Theatre room

Some more items have been installed so I thought I'd add some pics of our choices.

My dream splash-back is now complete.


When our tiler returned to fit the mosaics in our bathroom, he commenced the splash-backs in our kitchen and laundry.
