    I'm meeting the stylist on site today - I'll see how I go for photos.
    If not will get them the follow week after vanities, baths, toilets go in :)

    @Brady How'd your stylist meeting go? She on the same page as you? My stylist wants to hit me at times.. says I make her job impossible ..


    Fyi just realised I've been confusing this thread with your other floor plan thread, hence why I couldn't figure out why posts were getting ' deleted' .:oops:

    @Sackie hrmm yeah well she rocked up an hour late... not good first impression!
    Besides that didn't give a whole heap of info, liked what we had done.
    Was going to get quotes to me within 48 hours (actually don't think I've seen them yet - not surprised)

    Should clarify this is a stylist from a 'staging' company
    Have engaged stylist for the reno, that's been me.

    Ah ok gotcha, for staging. Are you able to see their inventory ?

    Would assume so, their warehouse is 10mins from work.
    I would think they would send out a brochure, info etc with the quote (which I'm still waiting on :|)

    Emailed them not long after I posted, they responded with an apology within a couple mins.
    Quote received about 15mins after that.

    Looks good, but that gap between the glass panels into the shower looks like it should be wider? Anyone a little heavier is going to have to squeeze in?

    Looking good. Love the mini hexes feature wall. Not a fan of those taps but it's all subjective really. Progressing nicely.


    I think those glass doors swing open?

    Yeah looks tight, but builder said it was standard door width, believe next size down would have put another 200mm gap, then nearly too large/cold/breeze.

    Feature wall looks the goods, taps decent for the price paid.

    Forgot to take picture of alfresco and porch - will be the next photos for you all :)

    Hmmm can you measure. It does look narrow. There are doors which are 620mm and yes you could call them "standard" but they are still very narrow. Hopefully it's 720 or wider.

    Looking great - nice cohesive colour scheme

    Is that the Clark Round Pin tapware range?
    I'm thinking of using the Clark Blade for an upcoming project or the Pin
    Their tapware and showerheads etc are a great price and they are one company that doesn't charge extra for black so you can have black or chrome for the same price.

    Can't recall the tapware brand, but definitely was same or similar costs for the black. So perceived value add!

    Few more pics, nice porch at the front, new big double doors as you enter.
    Stairs at the alfresco with new railing and posts.

    Will be doing a garden bed either side of the stairs this weekend, any suggestions on plants?

    I like cordylines.

    Sustainable ones would be grevillias or natives.

    Yukka's go crazy if you don't limit the roots.

    @Archaon was just at bunnings and cordylines was what I looked at... looked around $16 each, reckon I got a wholesaler who sells them for $10.

    Haha friends neighbour has some overgrown yukkas next door, could get them free :D

    Not built in, doesn't make sense to spend the extra $$ when property being sold.

    Wouldn't be too much effort if buyer wanted to, access is pretty easy there, but extra $ for the actually BBQ/cabinets nah.

    Especially when you have double doors straight to the huge kitchen.
