House Updates

Yes, it's been a while since I posted about our flooding fiasco.  We've been waiting for the condo insurance adjustor to give us an estimate of damages so that we can start the renovation project of redoing all of our hardwood floors, ceilings, and walls.  To top it off, we've decided to redo the 15 year old kitchen at the same time.

It's been overwhelming, to say the least. Having to pick out cabinets, flooring, countertops, the little things I have yet to think about, I've decided that fashion is so much easier than decorating the home.  

So here's a list our to-do list per approval of the condo board.
  1. Remove old flooring and gyspcreek subfloors from living room and bathroom.
  2. Replace kitchen cabinets with white shaker style cabinets. (Photo below shows old cabinets, old countertops and the piece of flooring is what's currently in the living room.)
  3. Remove marble floors from kitchen (it came with the house, I mean who puts marble in the kitchen floors?) and put ceramic tile or hardwood. UGH!! Decisions. Decisions.
  4. We've picked out Brazilian Tigerwood engineered hardwood for our flooring (since we can't put down real hardwood due to our subflooring).
If anyone has anything opinions, thoughts about kitchen renovations, I'd love to hear from you. 

Old countertops, cabinets, marble floors, plus hardwood floors from living room - to be replaced

Possible kitchen floor in ceramic tile with marble look
Our new flooring for all flooring (possibly kitchen too)
Possibly my new kitchen. Love the dual tone cabinets
