|Our Kitchen which we refitted in August 2017|
1. Update the flooring
After seven years in our home (and with three children!) the carpets are looking very tired throughout the house. They have seen their fair share of spillages and footfall and have seen better days. I'd really like to replace the carpets with wooden flooring, something practical like a high quality laminate flooring and make it cosy with runners, rugs and other soft furnishings.
2. Replace the front door
If you follow me over on Instagram you'll know I'm rather fond of our front door however it is rather drafty, the paint is peeling and it really does need replacing. I have dreams of a dusky pink door and whilst the girls agree that this is a fantastic idea, Oli may take a bit of convincing, if not i'd settle for one like this...

3. Install a new bathroom
Our bathroom is very much a functional place and not a very beautiful one - currently accessorised by a million bath toys and a potty! As the girls get older I'd really love to reclaim this space and give the room a complete overhaul with tongue and groove panelling, patterned tiles and a roll top bath perfect for relaxing in with a book.
4. Change the blinds and curtains to shutters
Many of our windows are still undressed and we have kind of ended up with different styles throughout the house where we do have them. I'd love to unify everything with some white wooden shutters. I love the light that they let in, the privacy that they provide when required and how stylish they look. not to mention that they go with everything so changing the room scheme is not a problem.

5. Converting the loft
This last one is a big one but something we are probably going to have to do eventually. The house currently has three bedrooms which means two of our children share a room The shared bedroom is working out fine at the moment while they are little but I know from experience that they will want their own space as they get older. We don't plan on moving as it will be far more cost effective to add an extra bedroom on. The loft would lend itself beautifully to a cosy extra bedroom full of character.
