New Floor Tile Pic

I met the tiler on site Thursday morning and it was all pretty straight forward. We discussed which way would be best for the floor tiles to run and what was going where, because we have no vanities our powder room wall will have to be done at the same time as our other splashbacks in kitchen and laundry. We have tiles running in similar directions in powder and main bathroom but different in ensuite and laundry just based on the shape of the rooms.

We went back out to see the painter on Friday and that too seemed to be straightforward. I have to wonder though how they remember which bits are white and which are grey for the outside. I'm just hoping that the painting is good quality, he mentioned that he and his brother have been doing this for a long time. I am thinking they won't start til next week.

Some of our weatherboard at the front will need to be taken off as our trim to the two front windows was not put on, this is apparently happening on tomorrow if weather stays good I guess. Chippie was annoyed as he had asked ss was there trim going around the windows as trim had been delivered but chippie was unsure as it was not on any of his drawings and was told no. This needs to be attached before the weatherboard. I was unsure of whether we should just have left the front as is without the trim as it is quite thick and maybe too much for our front and I really am just loving the front the way it is but the husband wants it on and has reminded me that when it is painted grey we will want lots of white bits to balance it out. Still unsure about it though, hope I like it.???

We had a sneak peak of our tiles on Friday and all the tiles in wet areas have been laid, having not been out to the block today I'm assuming that the walls will be started today. No pics though.








This is a pic of our new floor tile that will be used instead of the dark grey. It is a porcelain carrara type look tile in 600x300. It was really hard to find this with a grey vein instead of the brown and I think this fits in better with the style of home we want whilst still staying within the confines of a project built house. We have picked a light grey grout to go with it. The dark grey will still stay in the laundry and will have a matching grey grout for it as well. Tiler was lovely and already had picked the same grout colours out.

PLUS! Our lining in the entry ceiling has been done and will look beautiful once it is painted. I took a crappy pic on hubbys work camera but I think he took it to Africa with him.

  3. I would pay anything to have thick trims!!! They are going to look lovely, especially with the grey weatherboards..

    1. Amy we upgraded the size but I have to say that my trims are my second biggest "mistake" so far, I should have picked something with a bit more of a traditional mould to them instead of the simple plain ones we have and we should have went even bigger to go with the higher ceilings. Next time maybe? haha.

  4. Yeah true, browns and beige's are common so why not opt for the grey and white, they are beautiful.

  5. White is always a good choice in term of flooring. It matches any type of furniture you want to use! Just be careful with cracks and discoloration. It can be more visible in a light colored tile.
