When we were first designing our home, I had dreams of doing high gloss white cement floors throughout our whole main floor. My dreams were crushed when I went to get a bid and found out how labor intense they would be to do on a second level.. I didn't think about how heavy the floors would be and how we would need a bunch of reinforcement to hold the weight:( It would have cost lots of money to pull off the look!
My dreams could now be a potential reality on a basement floor with the existing concrete. I know cement sounds cold to do in a basement, I would have to go heavy on the rugs!
I want to add a kitchen on a smaller scale, doing something a little more masculine involving brass, metallic and wood sound really appealing right now!
So these are my ideas and they could all change next week because that's what happens when your taste changes weekly:) I hope we get started soon, I will share all the details as we go along!
