I love this transformation. Once we put our floorboards down the whole house felt so much warmer and homely. I like the different timbers with the brick wall in the downstairs rumpus room, I feel it blends it all in nicely. I originally planned to paint the staircase white but now I think I will leave it. Yes it looks a bit old school (it's a 70's house) but I think I kinda like it for now. Keeps a bit of character :) Hope you all have a good day.
