We didn't want it on or under the bench and we've only got a corner pantry so no room there :-)

We were worried about the accessibility behind the door but it's surprisingly easy to use.

that looks great! cool design

WOow- did you see the "wave" design bench top- there tops look great! Plus they must be hardy I would think- are they porous though?

yep- do what you love- then if it makes you panic everytime you look at it- you'll know its not right and then you can just repaint!

I painted my bedroom in a light grey with a touch of blue tones and I have to say that I have a little panic every time I look at it- I don't like the colour- it's a little dated and a little too 'wishy washy' and a little too 'cold' toned... thinking of going a stronger grey or trying a 'warmer' grey with a touch of brown tone to it.

we put in plenty of 'wild iris' grass plants on ours and never had a complaint- I guess some councils are stricter than others. I loved mine because they are SO hardy- I never had to worry about them and then they would spout these pretty purple or white mini iris flowers and I would think- how could such a neglected bunch of plants look so pretty? Goodluck!

cool idea- maybe they could work on the aesthetics a little more- you never know when you will need them visible and when you won't- so they should be pleasing to look at just in case

Bungalows always seem to be in hot demand here in Adelaide (not sure if Perth is the same)- everyone loves them because they can do them up in a classic/ character home style. If you are in a high end suburb where the really nicely done up ones fetch high prices I think that you should either do it up VERY- well or leave it alone and let the people buying it make it exactly the way they want... these old homes are the mecca for people looking for timeless appeal- don't do a half hearted job!
Big skirting boards and fireplaces mixed with plantation shutters are a must. Maybe some classic white subway brick tiles in the kitch splash back - classic choices with a touch of colour here and there- but not brightly painted walls- classic whites and warm greys for sure.

we were in the US for several years and they have no zones- just vents that you can open or close off- where as in our Aussie home we had 5 zones and was always worrying about the different rooms.

In the US there are a lot of alternatives- one that I was very happy with was a white perspex type surface- it was so easy to clean- no grout and mould- I loved it. I did have one similar in Australia in a house my parents built as a teen- the only weird thing about that one was that the bottom made a 'cracking' noise when you stood on it- like it was on an uneven cement slab or something- thought it was unique to our shower until I looked at a display home with the same shower yrs down the track- of course I jumped in and checked- sure enough it creaked and crackled too! So be sure to check what the 'floor' of the shower will be like!

WE had it in the middle- I just like the more even "mixing" of hot and cold when adding new water- plus I don't like having the tap in my back when I'm having a co-bath!

oh - and we had a 'flood' recently where the floor got all wet. We pulled up the timber- underlay and membrane plastic- dried everything out then relay it... was fine after the event.

we had Jarrah (solid planks) put down on the slab (with the green moisture barrier paint in between). We had NO problems with gaps or shifting... they were stunning and very quiet. If you put them on the ply wood you will get more 'noise'- some people like that because it is more 'authentic' but the conrete was perfect for us- but a little colder as well - I thought.

In the girls room I would think that purple is more 'now'- and gren would be a more long term colour choice- I know my 7yr old would definately pick purple. I would go with what she wants now and change it later when she may want something completely different from both of those options in 5 yrs time. Paint is easy to change- take a chance!
