let the selections begin....

After we got the plan about 90% with the design there we started to think about our fixtures and fittings. So far  some of the bigger items we have a very good idea of -

  • Kitchen bench tops - 40mm stone tops for the island and kitchen benchtop. 
  • Kitchen design - Mock up shown below and this kitchen which has been used as inspiration
  • Mostly drawers with overhead cupboards to ceiling (with small bulkhead). Wide island bench with breakfast bar seating. Cupboard on reverse side of island.
  • We are reusing our kitchen appliances (2 multi function ovens and induction cooktop)
  • We are having an undermount sink and the kitchen tap with vege spray. The bendy goose neck part is the coil for the spray and it clips into just above the black part on the spout. I was concerned that it may lose its shape over time, but they have told me that it won't and if it does it would be covered under the 15 year warranty.
  • All our bath and tap ware - Nothing too fancy, flick mixers, ceramic basins, hand & rainwater head shower roses
  • Light Fittings - CFL downlights through out. Media room with dimable halogens
  • Bathroom tiles - Mostly white/off white with colour added through feature times
  • Data point plan - house wired with Cat6 and lots of data points
  • Timber closed housed internal stairs with timber rails and black metal straight balustrade with no twists or helix. A bit like this 
Some of the thing we have ideas of but still undecided on...

  • Flooring for main floor upper and lower - either timber floors or rectified porcelain tiles
  • Colours internal and external
  • Fencing
and heaps more we havent even considered I'm sure.....
