Well, we’ve had a bit of a shocker on the loft conversion-front. The builders who we’d had booked in for September to carry it out, phoned up last week and asked if we’d like to bring it forward at all. Sure, we thought, thinking they meant to start in maybe July or August. Well, they actually meant THIS WEEK, meaning that as I sit and type I now have 3 guys breaking through the roof from the outside! We must be mad, what with the wedding still being organised, but we thought we might as well crack on.
Anyway, the ins-and-outs of the building work is for another post, but what I do have to start thinking about now fairly quickly, is the finer details of both our new loft room and the en-suite bathroom, and this will include of course include making decisions about carpet and bathroom flooring. Now, in the rest of the house our flooring choices have remained relatively neutral- certainly the choices of a couple who played it safe as we had a lot else going on, and were’nt sure what our final colour schemes would be in the various rooms.
Well, as I think we’re pretty certain we’re going to go for white walls all round in our new bedroom, I’m quite excited to think about the possibility of some brighter, more exciting flooring, ala what Carpetright has to offer this spring!
There is so much potential to jazz up your bedroom, or any other room for that matter. This fab stripey carpet (above) would make a great statement in any room, or even stairway.
^^^This bright red carpet looks great against a plainer wall, and compliments interesting artwork.
^^If you’re looking for something a little more unusual, I really do love this ‘Casablanca’ carpet, which provides a modern twist to a North-African vibe. Be the one whose home people talk about!
^^Of course, you don’t have to have carpet at all! This brilliantly bright yellow vinyl flooring would be a huge statement in your bathroom or kitchen, and a bright floor such as this is definitely something I’m now considering for our en-suite (especially if it matches an avocado bath-suite. Yes, I’m still feeling that, sorry!).
What do you think?
What flooring do you currently have in your home?
Do you prefer bright bright bright, or a more muted palate?
I’d love to hear!
A big thanks to Carpetright for partnering The Spirited Puddle Jumper.
Ooh – good luck with the loft conversion. I love the yellow vinyl- must admit I find the patterned carpets a bit much but I do like the bug prints!
We’re redecorating our spare room this spring and are probably going to paint the floorboards, a cheap and easy quick fix until we can afford to re-carpet the whole upstairs.
It’s a great in-betweener, painting the floorboards, we did this too in the upstairs rooms until we decide whether to get carpet or not. I love the yellow flooring too, would love to have somewhere to use it!
