House Renovations - The Dream Kitchen and Beyond

July 13, 2018

Last year we had the opportunity to renovate the main level of our home south of Brisbane.  It was a true 90's bonanza when we bought it in 2016: A Teal and Terracotta Mansion.

 

Some of the most interesting features were:

 

- Peach tiles and matching corner bath in the main bathroom.  Complete with water stains, filthy grout and mould galore.

 

- Teal laminate benchtops in the kitchen complete with matching kicks! Feature tile circa 1999 Mooloolaba Motel. 

 

-Peeling wooden dresser vanities in both bathrooms

 

-Brass wardrobes alongside brass light fittings and shower screen edges

 

-Hot pink rooms, purple rooms, green rooms, blue rooms, a true rainbow house!

 

-TEAL window frames throughout the entire house (we still have downstairs to tackle!)

 

-Pastel brushtroke pelmets in the lounge-turned-dungeon downstairs (still intact)

 

-Matching teal swirly laminate laundry

 

-Blue painted concrete garage

 

-Apricot painted decking downstairs and concrete upstairs outside the front door

 

-Blue ballustrading, teal gutters and a maroon roof. Beautiful with the teal windows and dirty pebblecrete! 

 

-Drummy cracked bone tiles laid in a diamond pattern throughout the main part of the house, with a border around each room to make each space look as small as possible

 

-Tongue and groove flooring in three bedrooms and the lounge, tiling most other places, damaged parquetry in two bedrooms
