our kitchen renovation : day 20

Yesterday saw the tiles go in. It’s official. I’m in love. The tiles are perfect. The first tile store we went to had very cheap and plain subway tiles for $22 a sqm. They weren’t what I was after so we went closer to home to a lovely tiles store, Tiles by Kate. They had exactly what I was after. Italian subway tiles. Much thicker and more substantial with a lovely gloss to them. And yes more expensive but the entire tiled area was about $300 which I think is very reasonable for such a stunning look.

And I couldn’t wait. I had to start moving things into the new kitchen even though I have no power or lighting out there. I just couldn’t help myself. It’s coming together so beautifully and really is my dream kitchen.
