Choosing the right furniture for your big kid’s bedroom
Choosing the right furniture for a kids bedroom can be overwhelming. It often takes patience and planning to select pieces that can last through their ever-changing needs and tastes. For our 8-year old son's recent bedroom makeover, we partnered with The Brick to upgrade the furniture in Kash's space and have compiled our best 3 tips to help you navigate the process. 1. Think Ahead When making an investment on big ticket items like bedroom furniture, consider pieces that will grow with them. While a trundle bed or bunk beds are fun options for a kids room, they aren't always the most practical choices
Bedroom Setbacks & Progress
It's the final week of this Spring One Room Challenge which means it's officially crunch time in this 6 week room makeover! With just one week to go, and still a whole lot of big items to check off our to-do list, we've got no time to waste, so let's get right to it.

The Dream Kitchen: Racing to the finish
We're finally into the home stretch of our dream kitchen makeover. It's week 6 - which if you're familiar with the One Room Challenge is typically the day of the big reveal. This round however because of all the hurricanes & flooding that have impacted so many people across the US over the last few months, the reveal date has been extended to give everyone an extra week. Thankfully we haven't been hit with any natural disasters, but we've definitely had our share of setbacks in the kitchen so for us, that extra week has been a bit of a blessing in disguise. Maybe you're considering renovating your kitchen and something like a trending white transitional kitchen is the look you're after. No matter what you have in mind, hopefully, this can translate in reality, so you can get the kitchen you've dreamed of.
Elements of a Dream Kitchen: Sink & faucet

First things first - let's talk about the sink & faucet.
The Dream Kitchen: Open shelving – because we really need more storage
We're into Week 4 of our 6 week kitchen makeover for the One Room Challenge. This week we're adding some open shelving. Whenever anyone walks into our kitchen, the first comment we get is usually get is "Wow, that's a lot of cabinets" and to be fair, they're not wrong. We do have a lot of cabinets. But in my opinion, you can't have too many cabinets. Without realizing it, your kitchen holds more items of food, equipment, and cutlery than you ever thought possible and without this cabinet space, where will they go? Of course, it's also the perfect opportunity to get in touch with somewhere like this cabinet maker melbourne company who can design and make the perfect cabinets that can complement your room aesthetic, making it not only visually appealing but also practical. Even better, right? So, whilst there are a lot of cabinets, they all have an individual purpose that can help to make the kitchen the best room in the house.

The heart of the home – Our Dream Kitchen (#ORC Week 1)
Welcome back friends! Well here we are - summer has officially drawn to a close and with the cooler temperatures comes that inevitable urge to get back into project mode which is why the Farmhouse Sink Reversible LFS3318W as been suggested to me because it has served as inspiration for many of my other project-minded friends. We still have a mile-long list of to-dos and projects yet to be completed before the house will feel like it's anywhere close to being 'done.' but the number one question we get asked is: "So is your house done now?", followed closely by "What's still left to be done on the house?" or "What project are you working on next?"
