The time has come to start thinking about the interior finishes for the new condo. My previous experience went like this: Package A or Package B - choose one. This time around, there are three packages to choose from, but there are also several upgrade choices - counter tops, floor tiles, cupboard doors, backsplash tiles, flooring... Of course any upgrade will need to be carefully considered since nothing in life is free.
The second package presents a much warmer colour palette, with Cherry wood cabinets and floors. Problem: I can't see past the orange tones of the wood in this combination, so I eliminated this option immediately.
Like Goldilocks, when I saw the third package, I knew that this one was just right. Well, almost just right.. The floors are and cabinetry are walnut, which is not too dark and not too light - perfection. The cupboard door fronts are finished in Cloud White matte lacquer - the ideal neutral. The quartz kitchen counter, however, will require an upgrade, since I'm not loving the greenish hue of this stone. For the bathroom, white tiles, white vanity and white cabinetry with a soft grey floor tile are perfectly acceptable, although I may consider an upgrade to Carrera polished marble for the counter top. The carpet, which will be throughout both guest and master bedrooms is kinda ugly, so I will probably switch it to a lighter shade.
