How to Turn a Laundry into a Kitchen!
When you have 3 different Generations living in one house it's important that they all have space
In our old house there was already a granny flat - this one no...
So the Laundry had to become dual purpose
Mum needed her own cooking area - and she still does lots of biscuits and roasts so hey you need to get her a good stove and some room to do it
Within a week we took out the wall in between and finished off the new cornice - installed some new cabinetry including an island bench and a new cooktop and oven
Harvey Norman saved us over $400 on the oven and cooktop -
We went for what was a great price and in stock (Its how I shop- as long as it has what I want I don't care about the model)
National Tiles is always the best place for the tiles - No nonsense and always Great Price $100 - I just call in as they always have the 600x300 white, and they just always look great.
Handles from "Handles and Things" got here the next day and saved $70 - These handles are real quality and won't go rusty like the Hardware ones do - Plus they look nicer!
So total SAVINGS of over $570 over the week is not bad I don't think
Look for left over tiles to patch the existing flooring The previous owner stuck had left some tiles under the stairs - YAY!
Put a powerpoint in the island bench always a great idea
A good Chippie is worth his weight in gold!!!
