Happy Friday!💡• Tomorrow we are tackling the BEAST that is the first layer of plaster paint throughout the whole kitchen-diner!! Thankfully the heating is all up and running (which makes the new new space sooo toasty) and the spotlights were finished a couple of days ago. I cannot wait to see the transformation after we’ve finished painting... although the idea of actually doing it fills me with sheer dread!! The things we do, eh?! What are your weekend renovation plans? #renovation #renovating #refurbishment #refurb #homerenovation #homeproject #homeremodel #homerefurb #homerefurbishment #houserenovation #houserefurb #houseproject #realhomesofinstagram

Our garden used to be nice...🌻 And that’s it, the builders have packed up and left (almost!). All we’re waiting for is a spurt of good weather to get that roof light up🙏🏻! Then it’s up to us to finish painting the pebble dashing white, build some steps and a patio, and get everything looking pretty again ready for SUMMER!!☀️ (only 10 more days to the shortest day of the year! Yasss!) #renovation #renovating #refurbishment #refurb #homerenovation #homeproject #homeremodel #homerefurb #homerefurbishment #houserenovation #houserefurb #houseproject #realhomesofinstagram

Light it up • Although it’s still a building site, I spent so long just standing in the extension yesterday. It has such a nice feel to it: so cosy, warm and light. We have to let the screed dry for around another FOUR WEEKS(!) before laying the floor, and we’re still waiting for a long enough dry spell to do the roof light! After that it will be all systems go for the kitchen and decor! #renovation #renovating #renovations #refurbishment #refurb #homerenovation #homeproject #homeremodel #homerefurb #homerefurbishment #houserenovation #houserefurb #houseproject #realhomesofinstagram

Happy Sunday! • We had a rare weekend off from renovating this week! (Although, we did have to pop in to empty the dehumidifier in the kitchen extension as the plaster dries!). The finishing line is getting closer and closer! 🎉 #renovation #renovating #refurbishment #refurb #homerenovation #homeproject #homeremodel #homerefurb #homerefurbishment #houserenovation #houserefurb #houseproject #realhomesofinstagram

Knock, knock, knocking on our new door • *see before and after*. This doorway used to be part of our old kitchen window! Inside is going to be a utility room on one side, and a much-need second toilet and downstairs cloakroom on the other! (No more interruptions when I’m having a nice long bubble bath 😂) #renovation #renovating #refurbishment #refurb #homerenovation #homeproject #homeremodel #homerefurb #homerefurbishment #houserenovation #houserefurb #houseproject #realhomesofinstagram

Perspective • Happy Monday everyone! Who else is back at the day job after a long weekend renovating?! 😴 This picture perfectly sums up the last couple of days. Where we are so excited that the bathroom was FINISHED on Saturday, there is still so, so much to do in the rest of the house. We spent all of Sunday sanding, and felt like we got nowhere. So many highs and lows! It’s exhausting! #renovating #renovation #renovations #refurb #refurbishment #homerenovation #homerenovating #housereno #houserenovation #homeproject #homerefurb #homerefurbishment #houserefurb #houserefurbishment #1930shouse #bathroomremodel #bathroomdecor #bathroomdesign #bluetiles #bathroomtiles #realhomesofinstagram #gnmhome #newlywedandrenovating

Standard Saturday • Another uber-glamorous shot of us to add to the renovation collection🤣!

Grout, glorious grout • Things are now nearly finished in the bathroom, and I can’t get over how much the grout has changed the look and feel of the room! We were so undecided about if we should have black grout or white - and I’m so glad we chose the latter. We picked it because we thought it would make those stunning @toppstiles tiles pop - and they do exactly that. There was also a chance black would have made the room feel really dark. The white also links the wall a bit more to our mad @tile_giant floor. Dead chuffed is an understatement! #bathroom #bathroomdesign #bathroomideas #bathroomremodel #bathroominterior #bathroominteriors #bathroomtiles #quirkydecor #quirkydesign #industrialdesign #industrialdecor #renovating #renovation #refurb #refurbishment #houserenovation #houseremodel #homerenovation #homereno #homerenovations #homeproject #bluetiles #blackandwhitetiles #newlywedandrenovating #gnmhome #beautifulbathroom

We have a door🚪! • Not only do we now have bi-fold doors, but because of them we now have a room!!... A roofless one, but nevertheless it now means there’s not a gaping hole looking out to the pond! Progress!! 🤣 #renovation #renovating #bifolddoors #bifolds #refurbishment #refurb #homerenovation #homeproject #homeremodel #homerefurb #homerefurbishment #houserenovation #houserefurb #houseproject #realhomesofinstagram

Shower power • Literally cannot wait to have my first shower in this bathroom! I love the exposed look for brassware - an industrial twist on a traditional style! My fav! (Here the husband is testing out the height of the showerhead before it’s all plumbed in!...Look at his little finger 🤣) #bathroom #bathroomrefurb #bathroomremodel #bathroomrenovation #bathroomideas #bathroominteriors #shower #showerhead #renovation #renovating #refurb #refurbishment #homerenovation #houserenovation #homerefurbishment #houserefurb #realhomesofinstagram #interiors #interiorideas #homeprojects #bolddesign #newlywedandrenovating

Time to reflect • This renovation process certainly hasn’t been easy! So many highs and lows - you often find yourself stressing over little things like door handles and grout colours. Such little decisions in the grand scheme of things! However, we’re so lucky to be in this position where we can do something like this, and we try and remind ourselves that when things get tough. “Good problems to have”, right?😊#renovation #renovating #refurbishment #refurb #homerenovation #homeproject #homeremodel #homerefurb #homerefurbishment #houserenovation #houserefurb #houseproject #realhomesofinstagram

Deep ocean blue for the bathroom 🖤💙🖤💙 • On go the tiles (from @toppstiles) in the upstairs bathroom. They’re going to look STUNN-ING!! Really dark and moody, but still really warm and cosy!

Use your imagination... • Soon, at this exact spot, I’ll be looking out my bi-fold doors, whipping up a spag-bol (or something) on the induction hob, as I stand at the peninsular with the husband sat opposite me on a bar stool, perched at the seating area we’ve created. (knowing him he’ll probs have a cup of tea!). **shrieks with excitement 😁** #renovation #renovating #refurbishment #refurb #homerenovation #homeproject #homeremodel #homerefurb #homerefurbishment #houserenovation #houserefurb #houseproject #realhomesofinstagram

Bring on the bubbles • It won’t be long until I can have some amazingly long soaks in this @kaldewei tub! I originally wanted a claw foot, semi freestanding bath, but after some great advice was warned against it (with potential problems of weight, stability, etc). This is acting not only as our bath but shower as well, so it needs to functional, not just really really beautiful 🙈. So instead we’ve gone for this steel shower-bath! It’s solid, and nice and heavy - practical and pretty! 🛁 #bathroom #bathroommakeover #bathroomredesign #bathroomremodel #renovation #renovating #refurb #refurbishment #bathroomrefurb #1930shome #homeprojects #houserenovation #houserefurb #realhomesofinstagram #gnmhome #newlywedandrenovating

Bathroom ready • Today’s the day work starts on the bathroom! I can’t wait to see all the very different elements put together to hopefully make one visually exciting and eclectic bathroom (that’s also incredibly practical, of course!!)

(Sorry for the pun, guys 🤣) • This weekend marks the last of the plastering upstairs 🙌!! This means we can now start thinking about paint colours, carpets, furniture....

SATURYAY 🙌 • omg! This is the first time I’ve managed to walk around the house for a couple of weeks and I can’t get over how much has changed! Walking in the extension, although only halfway finished made me feel actually quite emotional!! It’s already got a character of its own and I can tell this is where we’ll be spending most of time!

Bring on the boxes! • look at all our bathroom goodies that were delivered yesterday from @burlingtonbathroom !! 😍 can’t wait to tear (very neatly, just in case anything has to go back “in their original boxes”) into them and have a good old nosy before the installation starts on Monday!! #renovation #renovating #refurbishment #refurb #homerenovation #homeproject #homeremodel #homerefurb #homerefurbishment #houserenovation #houserefurb #houseproject #realhomesofinstagram

Zig zag heaven • So we had some exciting news today! Our bathroom - including the bath from @kaldewei, shower, toilet and sink from @burlingtonbathroom and basin tap from @crosswater_uk - are all arriving on Thursday! All ready to go with these feature tiles from @tile_giant. The plumber is planned to come on Monday to get started so it’s all go go go! It’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, but working for @kbbmagazine means I get to see beautiful and unique bathrooms everyday and I love aspects from them all. So ours is going to have a classic-contemporary look, with a hint of industrial just to mix things up! I can’t wait to see it all come together!! #renovation #renovating #refurbishment #refurb #homerenovation #homeproject #homeremodel #homerefurb #homerefurbishment #houserenovation #houserefurb #houseproject #realhomesofinstagram

Roof talk • who knew a skylight could look so good?! We we (happily) surprised at how big it is when it was delivered! Our extension is south facing so this, along with the bi-fold doors, is going to ensure our room has an incredible amount of natural daylight bouncing around! Can’t wait to see what it looks like fully installed! #renovation #renovating #refurbishment #refurb #homerenovation #homeproject #homeremodel #homerefurb #homerefurbishment #houserenovation #houserefurb #houseproject #realhomesofinstagram

(Or a view of a room, at least) • Wow! The weather may have turned bitterly cold over the last few days, but things have certainly heated up over at the house! I can’t believe the building work started less than two weeks ago! The roof is (planned) to go up next week -the skylight already delivered ready for it! Our next thing on the to do list is sign off the kitchen design - not an easy task at all!!! #renovation #renovating #refurbishment #refurb #homerenovation #homeproject #homeremodel #homerefurb #homerefurbishment #houserenovation #houserefurb #houseproject #realhomesofinstagram

Bricking it 🤣 • Cant believe the brick work started this morning - it’s amazing how just a few rows can give you a real sense of the space!

It starts!! • We got a phone call yesterday from our builder to confirm the works to the extension were to start TODAY! Already the hideous conservatory is mostly down, then the digging of the foundations are next!

So undecided • Anyone else have a mountain of testers building up?? This is just for one room as well!! 🙈 However I think we’ve decided on the colour for our sitting room!
