Updating the house!

We are updating some things in our home. It's been a few years since we did this, and I figure that it's a good idea as this maybe the last time except for a few things.

First thing to be done is the new hotplates and oven to be installed in the kitchen. New laminex on the benches plus new tiles on the floor.  My kitchen is small because I don't need a large one, have been there and done that as we say.  Then the laundry floor is to be tiled.
Also in the past month we have replaced the fridge and the dishwasher.

En-suite, new tiles in the shower, walls to the ceiling and floor along with new basin, towel rails, vanity basin and mirror etc.
The above will be done after Easter, and we have bought all tiles though waiting on the tiles for the bathroom wall.

Have ordered drapes for all the rooms except the small lounge room, known as my office as these drapes are only 2 years old.

The small photo below is about the colour of the family room and dinning room drapes, I actually think it's lighter in reality.
The drapes for all the bedrooms are different but all the same.

    1. It's hard waiting, but it's a must. I chose that colour due to the charcoal carpet, then we have wood, so with a bit of luck the colour should blend in, plus a rather neutral colour you can add any colour to it.

  6. I hate having work done in the house, however, it is very satisfying once completed. We have to put ourselves through these travails in order to keep everything shipshape and make life easier as the years pass by.

    1. Makes a mess, lots of cleaning up but worth having it done for the next stage of life.
      It's been a long time since the drapes and the ensuite was done. Looking forward to it all.

    1. Hello Cynthia,
      I might take a photo or two and upload them when all is done. Yes, it's fun replacing and renovating 'again'.
