Floorplan - Before & After Kitchen Reno

Because there is nothing better than snooping into other people's homes after listening to them waffle on and on and on and on...I present to you our current floorplan...
(Apologies for the sub-par graphics. I haven't quite mastered Microsoft Paint!)

Sooo the current kitchen bench/breakfast bar looks into our master bedroom......awwwwkward and a little bit weird. 

Here is the new floorplan, much more modern and has the added benefit of separating the Study & Master suite from the rest of the house. 

We had a great meeting with our awesome electrician, Jim from Jimelectric who has helped us plan the work that needs doing for the kitchen overhaul, namely:

  • Removal of the horrible fans in the lounge & study
  • Removal of the domed lights in lounge, study, hall, kitchen and entrance
  • Installation of flush downlights in lounge, study, hall, kitchen and entrance
  • Installation of pendant lights over the kitchen bench

  • Installation of Clipsal Saturn switches and points
Clipsal Saturn
  • Installation of Hunter Pacific Intercept fan in lounge

  • Installation of LED strip lighting under kitchen cupboards and around edge of sunroom
  • Wiring and installation of the Husk pendant over the table in the sunroom

Next weekend will be our first big start on the renovation. We are getting stuck into the removal of the window from kitchen to sunroom (to make room for new kitchen wall to be built in a few weeks); the removal of the old built in desk from the study area and of course starting the floor removal.
I'll no doubt update you with a ton of unflattering photos (of both the house and myself..time to break out my best reno outfits of course!); and an impressive list of swear words following next weekend.

Till then x
