The idea is now off the cards completely. Suddenly. Wholely. Unequivocally.
Ator, the painter, had a quiet word in Mum's ear this morning, and that, as they say in the classics, is that.
He did suggest, however, that polished floorboards would be a great look. And now Mum is pushing that barrow.
Funny how yesterday when I said "There's timber flooring under these tiles. I'd polish those back if we can. It's a no brainer." Funny how then the idea was rubbish.
So very very glad Ator isn't a fan of more vinyl parquetry...
Anyway, the main discovery of today - a truly exhausting day, by the way - is that since the kitchen is big, it's going to cost a lot to replace.
The actual cooking area is in the vicinity of 26.325 metres squared. And the costing we have is for over $1000 a square metre. How can that be value?
I mean I know you want a kitchen to last. And I know you get what you pay for, but this seems a little silly.

We also do not have those stools.
My painted doors, however, look SENSATIONAL. Will photograph tomorrow when they're finished.
