We’re most definitely getting out of the 70s - we had plans drawn up before we even closed on the house.
The wall between the kitchen and the living room in being moved 30" into the living room. The wall between the kitchen and the family room is going away. All of the flooring is going away, although the bedrooms will keep theirs for a while longer. The kitchen, dining room, and part of the family room will be a composite tile that looks like stone. The new carpeting for the rest of the family room and into the living room and down the hall will be something not orange or blue.
All window coverings will go away and be replaced. All wood paneling will go away and be replaced with sheetrock walls. The kitchen cabinets are crap - really - the doors are all of half an inch thick. They’re going into the basement for storage down there. Our new cabinets will be a medium-stained maple in a shaker style, and there will be more of them. The door between the kitchen and dining room will be moved, giving me a U-shaped kitchen.
All borders will be removed - I’m hoping for crown molding throughout. All appliances are gone - the fridge will go to the basement, and the stove is just gone. There’s an avocado fridge in the garage that’s gone too, bit I’m keeping the chest freezer.
I’m still working out my plans for the bathrooms - one is much more extensive than the other, but both include getting rid of the blue toilet and tub, and both vanities and sinks. I’ll send the blue cherubs to the first person who pisses me off!!
Oh yeah - and I’m planning to install at least 3 of those tube-style sky lights. But first I’m organizing a telethon to pay for all this…
