Spend lot of money renovate your house?

How many of you would spend a large sum of money in renovating/designed your new house? Do you think that designed home would turn outdated after few years?

If I had the money then I'd spend it.

If you chose fairly classic fixtures and fittings then I suppose they'd look good for a long time.

Things like those fish tank bathroom wash basins for instance look quite cool in the showroom but I can imagine that 2 or even just 1 year down the line you'd be thinking 'whatever possessed me to buy such a naffo high maintenance sink'

same goes for if you chose all marble flooring and it turned out to be a nightmare to keep clean or you decided to have kids and they kept falling down the steps you designed in the living room or worse, into your water feature!

It could be a great project but you'd have to think ahead I reckon.
