Upgrade Plans For My Home

One thing I’ve always loved since I was a child was planning, decorating, furnishing and upgrading my room. I don’t know where this passion came from but it’s something I love to do and is an ongoing project in our house.

Whilst saving to visit family overseas any plans I had or would have liked to make for the house went on hold and rightly so.

You have to focus on one goal at a time and now we’ve smashed our travel goal we can return to making some small upgrades in the home over the coming months and year.

So here are the things I’d like to do as and when I get the chance.

Lounge Upgrades.

We have a lovely lounge, and I’m quite happy with our beautiful Wayfair Sofa and the furnishings. I like a simple and plain room.

The one thing I’d love to do in future is have the flooring in the lounge replaced and improve the tv fixture by either having it fixed against the wall or getting a tv stand.

Eventually I’d also love to have the walls painted as they are so grubby and are a typical “council house marigold yellow” which is throughout the home. I’d love to change the colour of the wall!

Hall, Dining and Landing.

I’d like to replace the floor in these areas in our home. Given how unwell I get and that my immune system is poor, I think wooden flooring would be healthier than carpet and easier for keeping germ free. It would be good to get matching flooring throughout if possible. 

Stairs

I would also like to replace the carpet on the stairs.

I’m wanting to get a second banister for our stairs in future to help get up the stairs easier.

Kitchen

I’m happy with the kitchen and all our appliances, however it would be lovely to one day replace the tiles and make the kitchen a little more personalised. That’s non urgent but something I’d like to do.

My Bedroom

Our bedrooms are good enough. However the one thing we do need desperately is a new bed. The base broke so many times and is very uncomfortable and the mattress has become lumpy so that’s something I will look into replacing when I can.

It would also be nice to repaint my bedroom walls and again switch to wooden flooring to help my poor immune system. 

Sylvia’s Room

Sylvia has an old mirror wardrobe which is beautiful but quite wobbly and cracked and so I’d like to send it to the the dump in future and replace with a safer option. That would also allow space for a dresser as she is entering her teenage years.

Bathroom

There is so much that could be done in the bathroom to make it easier for me to shower with my health conditions and I have ideas but this is a long term project.

We’ve had the same towels since we married in 2013 and I’d love to upgrade to a fresh set of family towels at some point.

So these are the things I’d like to work on slowly but surely over the next year or so. It’s good to make a list and write it down and we can slowly chip away at these projects over the coming year.
