Flooring done

Floorboards are finally laid and we are should now be ready to move in.

We went with bamboo flooring inspired by our neighbor, Thigee, who lives only across the road from us.  To my recollection, I think she said that strand woven bamboo are the hardest amongst all of them.  There should be some article somewhere in the net that supports this.

I initially wanted to mix with some carpets as, to me personally, it feels like a cosy bedroom. 

Our choice of color for the bamboo is quite restricted as it needs to match up with the internal color that we already have.  As most of our color accent is pretty much chocolate or dark chocolate or even some people called it mocha, then finding a color for the floor shouldn't be too hard.

Here is what we came up with:

The stairs is looking good me thinks.

 Overall we are quite happy with the job.  Only thing to note for this is, make sure you know exactly the size of the fridge that you have or will have.  We had some trouble fitting in the fridge as the edging of the floor didn't allow the fridge to go into the space.  So we had to get the people who did the job to come back and take the edging out so we can put the fridge into place.

Obviously this shouldn't be an issue if the floor are done before the hand over or you will have carpet or tiles to where the fridge supposed to go.

Next stop MOVING IN!
