So if you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed last night that I posted a little photo with the progress of our new home. Yep, the second floor is going up this week!
But our final color sheet was turned in and that’s it… no more changes to the new digs from here on out.
One thing I have to say though is that it’s kinda hard to choose from pre-selected cabinets, countertops, etc. I mean we could’ve asked for custom items, but it would have driven up the price of the home. Yeah, can’t have that.
Well we ended up choosing white cabinets since I wanted a light and bright kitchen…
And since I couldn’t afford granite, I had to choose from these color chips for our countertops. Yep, with all of these choices I still didn’t find what I was looking for… and then it changed my entire kitchen plan from white/gray to white/beige. URGH, this was the biggest change in my dream home plans, but I’m rolling with it knowing I can always upgrade down the road.
I was shocked that I didn’t even need to spend tons of money to upgrade my bathroom since the “builder grade” was exactly what I was looking for.
One of the fixtures I did upgrade was our kitchen faucet. At a conference this past year I was introduced to the Moen MotionSense kitchen faucet and quickly fell in love. Wave your hand above the faucet and it turns on or off. Or you can place your hands or object near the sensor at the base and it turns on.
LOVE this faucet. Great for kiddos that can’t quite reach the handle, or when your hands are covered in grime. Definitely going to cut down on bacteria in our kitchen! (see more about it here)
But the interior, that’s a different story.
It would have been so much easier to pick out everything that was in the display model or to have purchased an inventory home. But oh well, I’m rolling the dice and fingers crossed that everything turns out ok!
Anyone else in the same boat with past experiences?
