so heres our choices-
BRICKS: boral mist cat6
FEATURE BRICKS: boral domino cat7
ROOF: bristile sanctuary cat1
GARAGE: slimline surfmist
WINDOWS: pearlwhite gloss
ENTRY DOOR: windsor clear glazed w/ satin black stain
I know everyone may think its a bit over the top to spend money upgrading bricks etc. but I judge a house by what it looks like from the street, so for us, we spent the bulk of our budget on the front of the house.
CEILINGS: burbank white (upgrade)
CARPET: aged driftwood cat1
BLINDS: holland pumice
(sorry bout the happy snap but in the left bottom corner is the white gloss tile and its a better picture of the floor tile.)
kitchen, bathroom ensuite laundry all cat1 white gloss 300x200 horizontal stack
KITCHEN SPLASHBACK: antartica
(unfortunatley they wanted an extra $900 to extend the splash across the wall
so we had to opt for white tiles next to the splash.)
chicago gunmetal 400x400 cat1 (they look darker in the photo, theyre a light grey)
BATHROOM and ENSUITE VANITY:
white lace cat1 benches and pewter oak cat2 cabinets
white lace benches and astral bitumen cat1
urban bamboo cat2
STONE BENCHTOPS: polar
The other things we included at a cost were-
privacy locks to wc and ensuite $50
Translucent windows to bathroom, ensuite and wc $660!!! I couldnt skimp on this as I am paranoid someone is watching me on the loo or in the tub. lol.
we also upgraded our fibre optic package which was an extra $1000.
So my tip to anyone going to their color appointment- if you cant afford to upgrade something dont look at the choices, we didnt look at anything else exept the standard appliances tapwear etc so we wernt tempted to spend $$$$$$$.
It took us 2 and a half hours to get through color selections and electrical and we did our homework on colors etc before we went in.
