At last, we have completed the flooring for all of the downstairs rooms.
Do you recognise this scenario? I am sure its the same everywhere, maybe even in your house? unless you moved into a new build…
It goes like this…
After the stress and palaver of moving homes. You are finally in your new home. You unpack, decide you dislike the lounge carpet, move the furniture around at least three times, still dislike the lounge carpet. Buy a few new bits and pieces, decorate the children’s rooms, by now you hate the lounge carpet. Decorate the kitchen, still detesting the lounge carpet. Suddenly you realise 5 years have flown by and you are living with a carpet you utterly dislike! Sound familiar?
So you will understand what a relief it is for me to have not only a lounge carpet, but a sitting room carpet too.
I like natural flooring so we chose a very thick and chunky Sisal . I love pattern and textures and layers…I think of how carpets or flooring will look when they meet at the edges, its the little things that matter to me.
The pattern flooring below is the hallway tiles…the square raised texture is the kitchen floor..
Comfort of course is very high on my list, I always have cold feet. In the conservatory we have a slate floor, so when selecting the stone we budgeted for under floor heating…wow I am so glad we did, in the winter it is my best friend, I find it so comforting to step onto a warm floor.
It has been installed for about three years now and the well used thermostat was looking very tatty and dated.
Imagine my suprise when I was asked by Underfloor heating supply if I would like to review a new one* one that included a built in timer! I jumped at the chance of course I did…
My only obstacle was asking the very busy ‘talented other half’ to install it. I asked him very nicely and within the hour the job was complete, or as he always says “jobs a goodun”
My best friend now has a stylish new jacket with a touch screen and a timer! I set it to come on in the morning, just in time for my coffee break…hmmm toastie toes!
Downstairs flooring mission completed and 100% perfect. Now for the upstairs. (gulp)
Have you tried underfloor heating yet?
