It's time for Sandie's 5 in 5 again, so this month I thought I'd share some photos of the work in progress on the home improvements.
The first two photos show the work so far in the kitchen. The new worktops went in yesterday and today they are connecting the sink, installing some of the appliances and also hope to make a start on the tiling.
This is a look back into the dining room - still very much a storage/prep area. There is nothing to be done in the dining room for this stage of the home improvements - I want to get a dresser but that'll fit on the opposite wall. The table and chairs will go under the sunset picture, in front of the french doors.
The flooring has been taken up in the hallway and cloakroom (the door on the right) and will also be removed from the music/study room (the door on the left). It was honey coloured laminate which was scratched beyond repair and, in the music/study room, there were big holes in it. You can see the replacement flooring in the bottom left of the photo - it's limed oak (on offer at 50% of original price!) and it's vinyl planks instead of laminate. There will also be a recessed doormat inside the front door and, if there is enough money, the front door will be replaced as well.
The final photo shows the new sink and storage in the cloakroom. I had problems with the exposure but it is all white, not the grey in the photo. You can just about see the colour in the tiles under the mirror cabinet - they are iridescent and reflect in the light from the circular window behind the toilet. This is nearly finished - they just have to grout the tiles and lay the flooring.
The kitchen and cloakroom will be finished this week and the flooring will be completed by the end of next week. I'll post some more photos when it's done.
