Well the house is still going ahead, negotiations were not wholly satisfactory so any plans to do up the inside of the house will be on hold for a very long time. What little money we have will be needed so we can undertake the external work instead. I am looking at any way to save money for the renovations and thankfully there are plenty of helpful articles online. But on the whole we are still pleased, it means we finally get off road parking!
I am a little worried about how comfortable we will be with so little work being done inside. Hubbie is all for ripping out the old worn carpets and us just making do with bare floorboards for a while. I am not so keen on this idea, I panic the boys will get sore feet if the flooring is uneven or there is a rogue nail!
I want to work on hubbie to add some rugs down at the very least. I am getting older I cannot give up on all my home comforts. He lured me into the idea of a big house with the idea of open fires, big rooms and en-suite bathrooms, but the reality might end up being a bit different whilst we scrimp and save to pay the mortgage.
I had a look on Inhouse Rugs hopeful of a sale or a decent bargain at the very least. Thankfully there are lots of price reductions on there, I need something cheerful to jazz up the expanse of bare floors, bringing a little colour and warmth to the rooms.
I do like the wool rugs as I grew up in a house filled with these fluffy white things, so they remind me of my childhood but I do not think I would buy them I am just feeling slightly nostalgic. For furnishing my own home I would go for something more contemporary like the London Rug. Thankfully there is so much more choice these days, so not every house is filled with the same white fluffy rug anymore!
