Just wondering, what bit of your house are you most pleased with/ proud of? Did you add a big sunken bath, great floor tiles, triple glazed windows? Basically what is your favourite bit that you will probably look at with great pride?

Can you be a bit more specific, what aspect of let say the deck appeals to you? is it the size, the wood type/colour etc? In the Kitchen, is it the cupboard doors, the worktop, the appliances etc.
As for the home theatre, leave that for Matt.

Deck is merbau on treated pine bearers and joists, all nailed by hand.
Basic laminate benchs, glass splashback, Technica Appliances 900mm over, cooktop and rangehood, definately worth it when you have family over..
That and the timber floor., Photos to come.

Ours is only at slab stage, but it will be the chocolate emperador marble feature tile in the bathrooms I think. I love everything else we have chosen, but the marble isn't something we had expected to have as we were just going to stick to the builders standard range, but the guy at the tile shop said he loved our ideas on style so he would chuck them in for free.

My fave thing would be my kitchen .. black splashback against the cream cupboards ... just love it.
Second fave the tiles in the bathroom.
Third fave the bold colours we went with in the house ... they really work well with my fourth fave thing, the floorboards )

Granite in my kitchen... looking at the whole slab did give that 'wow' factor...hoping the remaining colour combination will look good.
Bamboo flooring.. unfortunately its another 10-12 month wait...we r at contract stage.

Can I say the whole house?
Atm (because we're not living in it yet) I'm going with the cupboards we put in the walk-in/butler's pantry and the cupboards in the laundry. I hate mess/clutter and I like when things are organised.
This might be revised after we move in, though.

Features would be the spa in the ensuite, and the butlers pantry with continuation of the kitchen bench and cupboards.
Other requirements for us were internal access from the house to the garage, and a separate formal lounge (kid free!)

A few really. Our high ceilings with lots of fancy plasterwork, (cornices, crowns, roses, arches, etc) Our bold colour schemes throughout our home, including various wall colours, magnificent carpets and lots of light that make it vibrant in some areas, and calm and soothing in others.
Our striking central kitchen (the hub of our home) with tall cabinets featuring silky oak wrapped doors and detail, DuPont Corian benches, and stainless steel appliances by Smeg.
Also, our feature jarrah entrance suite and leadlights. My mother-in-law was an artist and designed leadlights. She drew up all our leadlight designs and helped us choose the glass. It's exquisite, and in certain light, becomes a majestic display of colour in our home!
