After searching high and low for the right splashback, we found the services of A Splash Of Glass in Wangara. They were extremely helpful in choosing the right colours and after being happy with the quotes, allowed us to take a few different samples the house upon the final measure. The advice given was very helpful and I think the results speak for themselves. We ended up getting the kitchen splashback, two bathroom shower screens(semi-frameless) and two bathroom mirrors installed and are over the moon with how they look. Its beginning to look like a completed house! Would definitely recommend anyone looking for glass to visit A Splash Of Glass - super helpful, great price and great quality!!

Our carpet finally came in from over east after we purchased from Harvey Norman Cannington. They had an awesome special on a the time with $1 laying of the carpet. We compared to the usual suspects of Carpet Court/Parrys etc but felt we got the better deal with Harvey Norman. We made sure to get the quality underlay and the pet resistant carpet as we have a little mini schnauzer! So happy the flooring is finally done!

Another problem ticked off! Finally got the skirting boards downstairs done. There were a lot of issues with the wall being banged up behind the old skirting so we did the best we could. Dropped down to Bunnings and picked up some new skirts and away we go. Below are a few pictures of what it was like before. P.S what do you think of the new floor tiles?

Took us a while to finally decide on a colour but we went with Solvers Sliver of Blue. Much easier to do with no furniture and flooring in upstairs and skirting boards going on downstairs! Slightly worried it's a bit too blue but it will do for now. Many thanks to Nik from InStyle Painting for the superb help, tips and advice!!

We finally have a close to completed kitchen. The hard part is deciding which splashback to go for. We ended up deciding on a glass look but there's so many colours to choose from and we are so unsure. 

We had the same issue in this bathroom with the drain for the shower being above concrete but got that sorted as well.Tiling on but still so much more to go.

This one was tricky because we didn't know whether to change to layout completely or just upgrade what was already there. We ended up deciding to keep the same layout because of the size of the bathroom. Once the room was stripped, the first issue we had was that the original drains for the shower and bath were raised off the ground which was no good for us as we wanted the clean straight floor look.Lucky I have a great mate who easily sorted it out for us

This is not what you want to see when opening your new toilet package. We bought 4, 2 came cracked and 2 came with poor rubber mounts that wouldn't hold the toilet seat on. Not happy about that

First thing was first, remove the ugly carpet from the house and the horrible old air con unit out of the lounge area wall. Hard at work a few weeks in.

Here are the pics from the outside of our new place. Stay tuned for the latest renovations inside. Apologies for the poor quality pics as these are straight from the realestate.com.au app!
