Tiling

Luckily for us Di Lorenzo tiles is just down the road so we have been able to keep dropping in to try and choose what we would like.

We found it pretty easy to choose wall tiles in the Wisdom Prestige range but floor tiles were harder.

I would have to say that the majority of show homes are displayed with upgraded floors so that sets your expectations higher. The ones which have always caught our eyes are the large porcelain tiles – surprise, surprise. Having read different horror stories about how much extra they can cost – $$$ – we asked for two quotes, one for porcelain and one for a standard smaller tile.

The 600 x 600mm porcelain tiles actually came back less than we thought compared to some I’ve heard of so we are pleased.

Hence for the main living areas downstairs we’ve decided on:

colour appointments 037

Shown with the Laminex Espresso Ligna silk, white polyurethane silk & Caesarstone Emperadoro

 

Laundry

Here’s a natty plan my hubby drew up after my last post.

Laundry

White splashback tile 250x500mm (slightly textured) with Laminex Chalky Teak cupboard & Caesarstone Night Sky benchtop samples

colour appointments 043

Floor tile is a standard 450 x 450 graphite with marble effect. No photo because my camera was playing up 😦

 

Main Bathroom

Pale grey marble is the theme.

 

colour appointments 048

 

Standard wall & accent tiles for the boys but upgraded with floor to ceiling tiles. The walls will be plain with one row of the accent tile running under the full width mirror over the vanity.

colour appointments 051  smaller matching floor tile

 

Vanity & benchtop:

Laminex Chalky Teak             Caesarstone Night Sky

 

Powder room & En-suite

Rich creams and browns

 colour appointments 045

 

Standard wall and floor tiles but upgraded with floor to ceiling tiles.

The walls will be plain with two rows of a marble mosaic feature tile to run under the full width mirror above the vanity like so:

Having lived here as a child in the 60's I fell in love with Australia and always hoped to one day be able to visit again. So when the opportunity came to move here with my husband's job we decided nothing ventured nothing gained and decided to go for it even though it was hard to leave our family and friends behind in the UK. So now we're here lock, stock and barrel, children and pets too and embarking on building a new home.
