I work weekends and my husband works throughout the week, hence we don’t get to spend time together in the day EVER, unless we have a day off.
My husband also plays indoor soccer on Thursday nights, the one and only possible time to go shopping together.
So, last night, he generously didn’t go to soccer so we could go and look at kitchen appliances. I have a very specific list of features that I want the appliances to have and we have been looking on the Internet together, but not getting anywhere on finding a clear winner.
So we decided to go to the showrooms.
We went to Harvey Norman at Alexandria.
Welllll little did we know that they were doing a renovation themselves and the showroom looks like a rogue asteroid hit it.
There was CRAP EVERYWHERE.
All I wanted to do was see Neff ovens! But No, “it’s more about moving old stock out and not having new stock in”
GREAT, GREAT that is just GREAT! NOT!!!!!!!!
I felt so robbed of my nice evening with my husband. We couldn’t even see anything.
It was such a waste of our time.
I want to go to Winning appliances again, but they too are also under renovations too and are only open till 5-5.30pm!
Sooooo, one of us is going to have to take a day off, just for kitchen appliances. WOW.
Only because they are big ticket items and we need to make a decision on one thing and need to be able to visually see it.
. . . . . .
At least the bathroom section there was ok. JUST Ok. Not really my style, but was good to point out EXACTLY WHAT I DON’T WANT!!!
Not that a bathroom renovation will be happening soon, but good to get ideas. I have a pretty clear vision of what I want, but we can’t decide which bathroom to renovate first. There are 2 of them!!!
If you have 2 bathrooms on the same level, do you do them in similar styles? Do you use the same tiles? Would you just make one have a shower and the larger one have a shower and bath?
Does anyone else HATE those ginormous tubs? Seriously, some baths you could go for a swim in. They are ridiculous! How do you feel them up? Even more ridiculous when you put a shower over them and you can barely even jump in and out, let alone a child. We had that as a child growing up. The shower over the bath and I recall quite a few times where I slipped and my girly parts got quite a painful surprise, when one leg was in the bath and the other on the outside. Wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy, let alone my own child.
They make a lot of sense in terms of being efficient with the floorspace, however I am going to try and avoid doing this if I can. If I must, the bath will be as low as possble. Or maybe built in, so there is something solid to help you get in and out. And if you do slip, the surface area will be larger and probably hit your thighs first, saving your special place.
OMG, I THINK WAY TOOOOO MUCH.

This is my favourite bathroom reno I have seen, so far!
I would love to take one of the walls down to just the brick wall and paint it. Even if it’s not the bathroom. Looks so chic. (Thank god for my solid brick house!!)
This is our bathrooms:
The bathroom is between the 2 bedrooms.
I would just make this bathroom have a shower only. (the toilet is hiding in the corner) I need to have a closer look, but I have a feeling that this bathroom could be extended my it’s length.
There is something I do not like about shower curtains! They freak me out when they get stuck to my skin when showering.
This bathroom is much bigger then it looks and it is at the back of the house. You enter it from the kitchen.
I would rip that wall out that conceals the toilet. This bathroom could fit a bath and a seperate shower. I am sure of it.
This bathroom also has the laundry in it. We have a laundry in our apartment, in the bathroom. Hidden by fold out doors. I would do the same here. I have never used the laundry basin we have either. I think I would delete that, so save space. I just use a plastic bucket and place it in the shower when I am soaking anything. Works fine for me.
. . . . . .
I should be concentrating on our KITCHEN!!
Also, has anyone installed a solar hot water system?
