Not a well thought through plan!

OK ... so my plan re taps hasn't really paid off!

Let me take you back to the tender process (almost a year ago now!). Meeting with Hopetoun Interiors going smoothly. All of our pre-work had paid off and we knew pretty much what we wanted on most things.

The question of taps is raised .... the range is hideous. Even the upgrades were ugly. So in my wisdom (word used very loosely) I went for the cheap taps, knowing that I would upgrade them when we moved in.

Have you ever priced a tap? It's insane. Absolutely insane. Almost have to get an extension on the mortgage just to get some good looking taps.

So my plan to have ugly taps for only a short period of time has not really paid off and it appears that I will have to put up with them for quite a while yet.

* Heavy sigh *

Yeah, tell me about it! The taps we originally wanted was in the updgrade range. We toyed with the idea of having a couple of them - at $500 a pop.

Ended up going with something else. Hehe

Taps! Arrrgh! I hate those ones with screw in "H" and "C", which constantly work themselves loose.

We went for flick-mixers in the ensuite and upgraded taps in the laundry and batchroom. Judging by the price, they must be gold plated!
