I’m not sure who designed my home, seeing as I am now the third owner of it, but wow, did they do a terrible job. For some reason, the laundry is larger than the kitchen, and the bedroom is connected to the kitchen rather than the bathroom. The layout makes absolutely no sense, and it has become increasingly frustrating to use. In my old home, I could sleepily wander from my bedroom to the bathroom in the middle of the night, and be back in bed in a matter of minutes. Now, after months of living in my new home, I still find myself wandering into the kitchen and then having to make my way to the bathroom afterwards. It’s just a nightmare.
Seeing as I definitely can’t live like this any longer, I’ve decided to fix the problem. My first order of business is a kitchen replacement, where the kitchen and the laundry will be switching places. The kitchen that I have decided on is significantly more modern and easier to use, and will improve the liveability of my home tenfold. I am planning on getting the laundry redesigned in the future, but for now I’ll just be putting the washing machine and clothes dryer in the new laundry area and making do with what I’ve got. Because let’s be real, I’m not going to be able to afford both a kitchen, laundry and bathroom redesign in one sitting.
I am so excited for my bathroom to be an ensuite! I have spoken extensively with my interior designer about an appropriate bathroom design. Melbourne has plenty of designers and I found it rather easy to get them to price match each other so that I could get the best possible deal for my home.
As much as I’d like to think I have a bottomless amount of money to be spending on these renovations, I definitely do not. But in some cases, sacrifices need to be made, and I am definitely willing to sacrifice some money for my sanity.
