Tile Selection_Di Lorenzo Tiles

Hannah from Di Lorenzo was our consultant, she was so patient with me and gave great advise. I fell in love with the concrete look for the living area floors, so we're getting a quote for the semi-polished porcelain tiles 'Rex Concreate' in Mud, love it. I thought we should keep the same tiles all the same on the ground floor, so the laundry and powder room will have the same tiles but smaller size. It's great they've got these in mosaic as well so for the splashback in the powder room & laundry I can continue the same look.

For the bathroom we've decided on polished porcelain tiles for the walls (300x600) with matt porcelain tiles on the floor. I'm still undecided about the vanity colour and basin. It doesn't match the other tiles but the bathrooms will be upstairs.

The carpet is a dark grey which gives a lovely contrast to the floor tiles, this carpet is 100% won't bring up fluff (like wool) and is more stain resistant than wool.

This photo doesn't do it justice, I love these mosaic tiles for the kitchen splashback; it's 'Casa Mood mosaico Neutra Silver Lux'...looks great with white grout.

I think I need to re look at my colour selections
now that I've picked my floor tiles...

waiting on costing...

It's been three weeks since our colour selection appointment and we are still waiting on the costing...not sure how this can take so long;

we had our kitchen selection appointment last week and had no idea how much we had raked up in upgrades from the last appointment. The consultant for the kitchen selection had warned me it will take at least 2 weeks before we hear from him as Eden Brae was behind (from system issue they had??? ).

Now we have our tile selection coming up next week and again its hard to decide if we want to upgrade anything since we don't know how much anything we decided costs...very frustrating deciding on anything as they're unable to tell you how much????not sure this is the best process.
