@Anonymous, Thank you, oh the floor is hideous. Not tiles, just wood. I think there was a tile but has been ripped off. If it was tiles, I wouldn’t bother. Will polish and just put a centre rug. Is a council house, they said I can apply for Local welfare provisions but that’s just for white goods. Cut off carpet is a Brill idea, I will look and see what I can find. Thank you. This is very helpful.
