Bathroom, laundry and wine room pics

Our ensuite

Walk in stepless shower

The kids bathroom  (forgot the bathtub pics too...oops - will have to take some)

The laundry.....aka...our doggies bedroom :)

And the wine room...

New kitchen pics

Finally got round to taking some pics of the new kitchen.

Loving the new bamboo flooring, Smartstone benchtops....our new appliances - AEG oven, Smeg gas cooktop, Ilve Rangehood and Bosche dishwasher. Also the LED lighting is great!!

Cabinet door colours were - Albedor Classic White (plain Gloss finish) - for the lower doors, Albedor Pearl Illusion (Gloss Metallic finish) for the Upper doors.

Doors are finished in Albedor Brooke profile.

Stone benchtops  are - Smartstone Gelsomino - 40mm bevel edge.

The floor kick panel and face panel of the breakfast bar is Polytec Grey Oak.

 Really happy with all our choices, everything is working fantastically well.

Day time pics ....

And night time....

Our pull out drawer for putting hot stuff straight from the oven. Had one in the last house and wouldn't be without it.

The walk in pantry....still pretty untidy
