Floorboards continue, tiling grout

One thing we’re both appreciating is the extra level of attention our trades are paying to our home. Without being asked, our floorboards guy decided to use a lower profile skirting around the island bench. It.looks fantastic and I love that they’re invested in the success of the house.

Our ceasarstone benchtops are amazing

This week our amazing ceasarstone benchtops went in and I couldn’t be happier, they look amazing (even with a layer of dust). They’re in Osprey which continues the light and bright theme of the kitchen and now sets up for the glass splashbacks.
