The plan as it stands… Upstairs

New ideas pop into our heads all the time. The walk in wardrobe and en-suite have swapped rooms countless times. The kitchen layout has been designed three times and the style has changed twice. Those are just the big(ger) changes. I’ve lost count of how many times hubby has said ‘what about if the the to goes here?’ As I said before I really want to look back on all the ideas we had when the house is finished (does a house ever actually get finished?) and wonder why we ever had these ideas in the first place. 
So, as it stands right now, starting with upstairs. 

  • Master bedroom – is to be painted white with a soft grey accent wall. Keeping our IKEA bed and side tables and adding an IKEA lack shelf dressing table. Of the master bedroom we have already knocked through the built-in wardrobe with that of the one in bedroom two and the airing cupboard to create two rooms. The first being a walk in wardrobe with the layout still to be designed. Two walls of this room have been plastered this week ready for the old water tank to be removed and replaced with a combi boiler in the loft. The main bulk of the pipework will be in this room. The other room will be an ensuite with a walk in shower and an all in one toilet and sink unit. We like the idea of a waterfall shower. 
The walls knocked down before the divide was put up.
  • Bedroom two – the is little C’s room. Our six year old. We stole around a 50cm slice of his room for our wardrobe/ensuite. He’s still not very happy with us for making his bedroom smaller! He has asked for a Captain America bedroom. White walls with a striped feature wall in red, blue and silver. Glitter was also mentioned, on the walls and in the carpets. I’m hoping I can talk him out of it though! He has also asked for the area under his IKEA kura bed to be his superhero hideout. I’m currently on the lookout for a worthy fabric. We just plastered the new wall in this room today. Not bad for Big C’s third ever attempt at plastering.

    • Bedroom three – this room is almost finished. When we moved in the walls were painted the perfect colour for a naked minion to play hide and seek and never be found. There were also lots of holes in the walls where shelf brackets had been removed. Those have now been filled and the room has been painted white. We are yet to buy some dinosaur wall stickers as soon as B decides which dinosaurs he wants, he is more indecisive that his Dad deciding where the tv is going! Currently he has chosen a T-Rex, spinosaurous, pterodactyl and a stegosaurus. One needs to go. The room is not big enough for four large dinosaurs. The room also needs carpeting but this can’t happen until the new heating system is installed.
    • Bedroom four – is at the same stage as bedroom three. This is our spare room and home to whoever is having their room decorated (currently Little C) this is also painted white with no carpet. I may add a feature wall when the rest of upstairs is done. Still undecided on that one. We do know it will house a double bed for when family and friends visit. 
    • Family bathroom – this will probably be the last room in the house to be decorated unless I ‘accidentally’ drop something heavy in the bath from great height and make it crack. It’s avocado. It’s actually the comfiest bath I’ve ever been in and if you close your eyes and lay back you can almost forget how hideous the colour is. Almost. The layout will be main the same with a new white suite
