This is my motto at the moment "Keep calm and carry on" , something that you definitely need to do when renovating an old home. I will explain more later ; but all i can say is that we have opened a can of worms. Anyway ....keep calm and carry on. What more can we do...!
The somewhat nicer side to restoration work is deciding on what fixtures and fittings you would like to introduce to your design. These taps in the above photo are similar to the ones we will be using in our upstairs bathroom.
Bench tops and cupboard profiles is another major decision to making the kitchen both functional and looking great.
I quite like the simplicity of these cupboards, and will certainly be going with a similar painted finish. One thing i have discovered with making decisions; it pends greatly on availability. Because everything happens in a sequence if the product is not available at the right time, this greatly changes your decision making at the time.
These lights (which are available at our store ) will look great over our dining table. The rest of the house is proving to be quite a challenge. Any suggestions would be great. For the flooring in our kitchen dining area we are thinking of using recycled oak and then lime washing over the top , for a fresh open look to the somewhat small narrow room. Don't worry i will show photos when i can. Take care.
