CREATION OF STORAGE SPACES
As our renovation reaches the final phase, the focus has shifted to transfer , packing and storage of items from our rooms in our parents homes to our new place. In our opinion, creation of storage spaces in the new home is a very important part of space planning in a new home. It is always good to create as much storage space as you can have physically in your home and financially within your budget. Adequate planning of storage space allows the flat to be uncluttered and provides for future needs. That is why we created as much storage space in whatever carperntry we were doing and also expanding on that with furnishing. Our storage planning included the following :
Full height built in maximizes storage space at the top.
We spent this weekend cleaning up the kitchen and the display cabinet. For cleaning up of spots and marks, dirt, we use a combination of glass cleaner, Cif tough stain cleaner and magiclean cleaner which proves to be quite adept at removing most of the marks and dirt off the cabinets.
Our ROM cert and Precious Moments figurines and dolls used in my marriage proposal and ROM ceremony take pride of place in the display cabinet. We also put up the 'Just Married' license plate used for our bridal car.
On another note, for those who are into Precious Moments and keen to purchase the wedding dolls which we used for our bridal car decor, you can purchase them online and get it sent via air postage. You can view and order the dolls at :http://www.preciousmoments.com/content.cfm/shop_results?ptid=4&poid=0&amtid=1&pkid=&psid=&pindex=4
ADDITIONS TO THE ORANGE ROOM :
We also bought a two seater sofa and a complementing rug from IKEA for the orange room which will arrive next week. We also got a contact from Mega Discount store to install and mount my existing 20 inch Sharp Aquos LCD TV. All these are in place to create a gaming and leisure corner for us.
ADDITIONS TO THE LIVING ROOMWe got a red rug also from IKEA to complement the look of the living room and make the KARE glass top table stand out. Good thing about the rug is that it can be machine washed and the undelying area has rubber lining to keep the rug in place.Updated picture of the Living Room with a strong focus on primary colours of red and black topped by white flooring and glass top table.
