If you’re anything like me, your home is your hobby. People like us have been flicking through homewares catalogues since our teens, planning out our ideal bedroom (yes, I did this – it was all black ash and hot pink in those days!), and browsing interior design magazines whilst daydreaming about our ‘dream home’ (“I’ll have that rustic bedroom but with a four-poster bed” etc). Nowadays it’s even easier to find home inspirations – you can barely go online without a gorgeous interiors photoshoot or DIY blog post jumping out at you! We’re interested in interiors, cookery, crafting and getting the look for less so we wander down the homewares aisle at the supermarket and always end up bringing home another candle or vase. If this sounds like you – read on!
I found out about a fun survey that Carpetright are running on their website until the 13th November which gives you the chance to win a £250 Virgin Experience voucher so of course I entered the competition and took the survey. As I progressed through the survey I was a little surprised by my own answers and it turns out that I’m not quite the clean freak that I thought I was! The survey asked a lot of cheeky and funny questions about dust on your plug cables (guilty), pets (yes, mine ‘rule the house’!) and even how often you clean the toilet! I’ve previously written about a survey on Netmums about how often people change their bed sheets and I thought that I had a rather clean routine but not according to these results, haha!
It turns out that I am a ‘Nester’; somewhere between fairly house proud and clean but without much time to do it so I prioritise other things. The survey results hit the head on the nail when it told me that I spend a lot of my time searching for inspirational home updates – have they been watching me on Pinterest every evening?!
So what level of house-proud do you think you are? Would you dare shove your hand down the side of the sofa?! What do the treats you buy for yourself say about you? Take the fun survey to find out and don’t forget to enter to win the Virgin vouchers at the end!
