    We had new downlights put in a few months ago. LED. I'm not sure who tole you you need them every 60cm?! Ours are spaced out a lot more and gives plenty of light.

    We've so far managed to do 2 rooms in the new house - the new baby's room & my sewing room (except the floors, we'll be doing the whole house at once somewhere down the track).
    Baby's room before:

    Sewing room before:

    A little off topic, but how cold are those rooms? Riled floor in bedrooms seems really cold to me.

    We have one bedroom tiled in our new house. They are perfect for the tropics.

    They're pretty cold. I don't know why the people before us chose tiles for all of the bedrooms when they were building (I guess maybe cost was an issue), but since we've come from a house with all jarrah floorboards it's not so bad for us.

    Will you put rugs in there to warm them up a bit. I live in south eastern australia where we have freezing winters, I loath that all my living areas are tiled, I'd hate for the bedrooms to be too

    I'm planning to put a rug in the baby's room, but since it will be born in summer I'm not overly concerned about that just yet. The other room is just a sewing room for me & DH is going to change over the evap air con to zoned reverse cycle in the whole house so it's really just a matter of waiting out this winter, then we'll be ready for the next.

    How much mess can I expect from redoing a whole plasterboard ceiling? So pulling down the old one and making a new one?

    I just need to know whether to empty the room including cupboards? Or leave cupboards as is?

    As in taking the entire thing down and replacing it?

    If so I would move everything out of the room and also put plastic sheets up over doorways so dust doesn't get out of the room either.
