Fancy a little browse around our updated spare bedroom?
Not so long ago I showed you our main bedroom with the built in wardrobe that I designed. Well, we decided to strike while the iron was hot and get the guest room completed too.
I’m almost too embarrassed to show you this room before we did it up. Ugh. It was so drab and had been neglected a little to be honest. The carpet hadn’t been changed since we moved in and it just had zero character which is something I tend to bang on about here … adding character !
So, the obvious choice as we were so pleased with the main room and wanted continuity was to add the same engineered wood floor, which is by Quick-Step who also do vinyl and laminate flooring can see in the before and after how much changing to floorboards lifts the room without it even being finished.
On our checklist it had to be durable, aesthetically pleasing and sympathetic to the style of our home was an important factor for both rooms I spent time looking through some of their samples and felt really confident by the time we had made our decision that it was perfect for us.
Mark who I found on the Quick-Step website installed the flooring last time and did it again this time and it took less than a day to remove carpet and skirting board then put in the underlay, put in the floorboards and replace the skirting boards so it was really convenient as well. No hanging around – job done.
I am really chuffed with the room and it’s light and airy feel. It’s so much more homely and welcoming now. I love too that the floor is very easy to keep clean and it’s more hygienic than carpet too. Much easier all round. The floorboards also don’t creek like you might expect with wood.
This post is a tad picture heavy but couldn’t stop snapping it and I wanted you to see if from many angles as possible. I also painted the chest of drawers a Farrow & Ball colour – Parma Gray . What do you think ?
Hope you’ve enjoyed a peek at our new room ? I can’t wait to have guests over to stay.
Do leave me a comment under this post with your thoughts or just to say hi !
