Floor plan feedback

I would extend your scullery to include the scullery and laundry and that way the room marked "Bedroom 4" could be a lot larger.

Does the 3rd bedroom have a window? Does the 3rd bedroom have a wardrobe?
If it doesn't have a window or doesn't have a wardrobe, they are classified as study.

Your kitchen cabinets look the same as ours. What colours did you go with?
We went with Burnished Wood and White Silk with Ice Snow Benchtops.
