The big reveal this week was the kitchen, walk-in pantry and living room. Clean and white, the kitchen has marble bench tops and clever storage. The walk-in pantry is amazing and comes with a fridge slide and an office hub for home organisation.
The timber-look vinyl planks start at the front door and lead to bi-fold doors that open on to the deck and blend the inside with the out. As the vinyl planks are waterproof, they are in the kitchen too creating a seamless style throughout.
Darker tones in the flooring create a stunning entrance with the lighter feature timber ceiling overhead. Take a look at how James installed the timber ceiling feature with Godfrey Hirst timber flooring.
Vinyl flooring has had a makeoever, not only does it look like genuine timber, it is durable and hard-wearing. Here are some other top features for a home renovation project:
- Quick and easy to install.
- Timber-look with grains, knots, tones and textures just like timber flooring.
- Waterproof for use from living areas right through to the bathroom and laundry too.
- Protective layer makes them scratch resistant, no need to worry about dog claws, high heels or chair legs scratching the surface.
To complement the warm timber tones in the flooring Julia chose a neutral palette to make it easy to style. Leah upcycled the old garage door to make a dining table adding metal legs to contemporise the piece. Pairing it with slick black metal chairs makes it look striking against the vinyl planks.
In the Garden
In the kitchen garden, Anth built some planter boxes and filled each one with vegetables, herbs and a climbing trellis. He shared tips on how to repair a hole in reticulation pipes and made sure the fences are all child safe for the pool.
Tips from Week 9
- A neutral palette doesn't have to be boring - timber, marble and concrete add dimension and texture. Add life to the space with indoor plants.
- Cut down on tradie time by choosing consistent flooring.
- To reduce waste and give each board variation, install each board by staggering the starting point.
- Ensure the line of the boards is running along the widest part of the room.
- Styling is like putting a jigsaw together. Be sure to take stock by sitting in the space to get a sense of how everything works together.
