I'm, once again, linking up with 5 on Friday to ask you five questions about what the heck I should do with our new house. As the planning is coming to end and the actual construction begins, I have a few more decisions. I need your help! So please let me know your two cents about the five below!
I've read some slightly negative things about front loading washers. Mold buildup, leaking, etc. I know they sell some top loading ones that have the same washing capacity, but I don't know if they have all of the bells and whistles of a front loader.
What do you have? Do you like it? Would you repurchase?
I love the look of a pedestal sink in the main floor half bath, but I'm not sure if I'm willing to sacrifice the storage by not having a cabinet. I suppose once kids are around, you shouldn't have cleaning supplies and stuff near the ground anyways, but I put extra soap and stuff in our guest bath.
Do you like your pedestal sink? Do you miss the storage for toilet paper and cleaning supplies?
I love the look of these lights for the kitchen, but George brought up a good point. There could be a problem with dust collecting in the bottom, and I definitely don't have the time or patience to clean those things out frequently.
What do you think?
George and I have gotten most of our furniture from Pottery Barn, but I'm looking to branch out a little.
Has anyone tried Overstock? What are your favorite places to buy furniture?
Marble vs. Granite:
We're definitely going with granite for the kitchen, but we were thinking of a lighter marble for the bath. I know that marble is more porous than granite, but I didn't know if it was a pain. There is granite that looks like marble, but I'm trying not to limit my choices.
What are your opinions on marble vs. granite for the bathroom?
That is all I have for now, thank you so much in advance for any advice you provide! I'm really excited to share the progress!
