Agreed, brick or stone can compliment well with hardie board in order to keep building costs in control. It might be ideal to consult an architect since this seems to be out of your comfort zones.

Thank you! Yea I initially picked something out which now seems awful (it was a combo of some hardy plank stone with a brick wrap... yea..) - I'm thinking about going with all hardy plank and stone. There are some really nice looking ones I've seen on here. Thank you again.

In general you don't "decorate" that high. The eye doesn't see up there. If you do something, it has to be either architectural or really big.

Janet Wells- I was a bit concerned that the texture would make it hard to keep clean (dust and bits getting trapped) but it's not a problem one bit. The texture is so subtle that they stay clean (and actually look cleaner that those white ones). After having them and cooking quite a few big meals on them in the past week (Passover), I can only say I love them even more than I thought I would. They look and perform higher than expectations.

The exact product is Wilsonart HD Aeon, Salentina Nero with a crescent edge.

The TV and clothes hanging are in conflict since one is more horizontal while the other requires vertical spaces. Would be difficult to incorporate both given the size of the TV and amount of niche space you have to work with.

Kittytawng, I closed off the passthrough for a few months to see how I would like it. I did not like being closed off from everything. It felt very claustrophobic. Plus, it makes the dinning area feel closed in.

Katie, I have 9 feet to accommodate the sink and DW. That should be plenty, yes?

If that's what you like, do it. Blackboard chalk on the walls, do the drawings yourself or bring in your talented friends. Get fabric just like that to cover your headboard. Match the bedspread and cushions as closely as you can, or find something equally colourful and fun. Then play with the rest of the room. Pick up the colours from your bedding; paint the other walls and furniture, hang drapes. It's all there, just within your grasp. I think you want crazy you, not something sane and within the rules. Have a ball.

Agreed, ASV.
To go a step further, go for double roller blinds, so you have sheers for light-filtering and block-outs for privacy.
Also, have you heard of honeycomb blinds? They are very versatile as you can open them from the top OR the bottom, or both. It's the ultimate in light control.

You have a very sandy soil, you might be better off extending your build so your lawn extends out to it and then have a retaining wall with steps downwards. (A bit like the moat idea!)

Do you require an eat-in kitchen? If not then consider using the entire space at the back of the kitchen for cabinetry and perhaps an island as well which opens up to the main living areas.

Hi Flyover................I did consider the natural light, but I thought that because you were taking down the walls to the dining area maybe that would be enough to compensate. I also left a fairly wide opening to the kitchen from the mud room. I probably wouldn't go any smaller with the half bath - 30"w is minimum. Good luck - I know it's a lot to think about.

How high are your ceilings? If they are the typical 8' for that era I would spend the extra money to get the header all the way into the ceiling, if they are higher it might be nice to leave it in some form to define spaces. Otherwise, it looks okay, I can see the point about the lack or private spaces though.

To add what Dytecture said, before you settle on color, make sure the material you choose has UV protection, water repellent, mold and mildew resistance...In your case, with the pool being near by, make sure Chlorine will not damage the surface.

As colors go, the darker the color, the longer it takes for the sun to fade it. Lighter colors fade more quickly even on the Composite decking.
IMO your best option would be is to contact a local painting contractor, who will provide you with a color chart and he will help you chose the best finish material for your deck in your region and colors that they offer.
When it comes to deck finishes, you have to know what type of wood you have on your deck and what finish will work best with it.
There is so many finishes on the market, i.e Transparent, Semi-transparent, Semi-Solid, Solid, and they all come in water-based, oil, etc.

With that said, to stain a deck is very inexpensive, this is why its important to choose professional painting company to do the work. Don't get me wrong, any 12 year old being careful enough can stain a deck... but being this outdoor structure you want this done right and you want a knowledgeable contractor to do the work and who will suggest to use best on the market, not to mention the job will come with product warranty and workmanship warranty.
The advise of your painting contractor on the finish is important, because they use products which have best performance in the field and they don't want call backs.
I have seen many times sales people in the Box stores or Paint stores give wrong advise to Homeowners, because they don't know any better, or they're told to move this or that because of inventory overstock or special promotion they got from a manufacturer, etc. There is a big difference between a Homeowner who does one time purchase or a Contractor with an account who spends thousands a year.

Good luck

I think the biggest expense in repainting the cabinets would be your time. Paint gives you a huge bang for your buck. I doubt buying a few cans of paint and some Floetrol would break your budget, especially if you're willing to go for granite and new floors. It's a HUGE hassle, but it wouldn't be hugely expensive. :)

I have two suggestions: Floor and countertops. Or if you are really dissatisfied, go to the IKEA store for a reno. I think you can get flooring, new cabinets and some kind of countertops (butcher block?) for reasonable money and the choices will all be something new. Something to consider as you hate so many aspects of this kitchen. Also, Nigella Lawson writes wonderfully about the kitchen and what it needs. Hers has lots of food and practical tools, is well-used and not about fancy things. Just some food for thought and a beautiful read!

If you want to go with granite, I'd recommend Bianco Romano or White Tango. While quartz can be very pretty, it's never going to have the same look as granite. I think you should go with the look that you prefer.

Right now we are staying for sure 1 year. That's great to know about recommended anchoring heights...I'll keep that in mind when we are at the furniture store.

Do you have a recommendation for a shallow storage table your thinking about Cristina?
I had the thought of using the Kallax storage unit and turning it on it's side so that it is longer and shorter than it is tall. Do you think this would be too short for that area? I just like that I could add/remove baskets as needed or just have an open cube space where random toys could be stored/displayed.

This would work in its side for size, and put legs on it (maybe form another series). However, pls consider having as much closed storage as possible. I have two school age kids and there is never enough storage for toys. I am a decorator by trade and my personal philosophy is to first provide functionality for the space and then find the style elements to address the needs. Open shelves with some baskets only look good when styled and not touched. I'd add the doors and drawers to the Kallax unit instead. It'll look more like a piece of furniture than a preschool cubby. If you noticed the room makeovers on tv, usually just show three toys and five books styled in these cubbies. Reality tends to be very different, because we all have more belongings than we know where to put.

Um, I would never put a refrigerator in the dining room. If you have a second refrigerator, put it in the laundry room, garage, or other out of sight place.

In the kitchen, the refrigerator, stove, and sink should form a "work triangle" with each piece no more than 10 feet away from any other piece. It is preferable if the refrigerator doors do not block a traffic pattern in the kitchen.

Finally, spend the extra money and get a counter-depth refrigerator.

Been there and done that - would never put wood flooring in kitchen. With tile flooring I'm not concerned about anything on the floor - even how long it stays before I clean it lol
With wood flooring I was constantly concerned about keeping anything on floor - water - dirt - food - cleaned up in case it stained it and spoiled the look.

In our recent home a neighbour asked us the same question as we have built many homes - we suggested tile - they went for wood and are now regretting it.

I do miss the storage I had in the peninsula but the kitchen was too cramped with it. I love the openness of the kitchen now.

That's what I figured. I asked just for some ideas for our kitchen reno one day. You did a lovely job!

Need to see a floor plan or photos to see how 'small' it is.

A larger sized louver provide a 'cleaner' look.

Metal or stucco would provide a more contemporary feel.

We used the Hardie Panel product with Fry Reglet reveal channels on our Zaguan House project. We were happy with the way it turned out. It was very easy to cut the channels and panels as needed to adjust the overall grid to align with the Architectural elements. We installed the system as a rain-screen, with a secondary drainage plane behind it, and I'm guessing you'd need to consider a similar method if you install it in your locale.

There are lots of variables such as sun orientation and your lifestyle.

When you mention ensuite, are you talking about a bath and shower and toilet? Hard to see the actual square metres but it seems mighty small. Given my choices, I would always go for a master bath/shower as part of my ensuite.
