Student house hunting is a bit of a minefield, as most of you already know. You spend so long searching for the perfect house (that let’s be honest, is a bit impossible with your budget anyway) that eventually you have to settle for something that hasn’t been updated since it was built… in the ’60s.
The good news is, if you just so happen to have moved into one of these not-so-tastefully decorated households, you could be the owner (or renter, whatever) of Britain’s Ugliest Carpet. Whilst this doesn’t sound like a good thing, it does mean that if you enter a competition currently being run by PoshFlooring.co.uk, you could be in with a chance of winning a £150 prize from Red Letter Days which includes days out and experiences for every taste. Whilst this may not lessen the pain of having to look at your horrendous carpet every day, it will mean you get to get out of the house for a day so you don’t have to look at it!
To enter the competition, simply tweet a photo of said ugly carpet to @poshflooring. If you don’t have Twitter then for goodness’ sake, just get it. You’re a student, you’re supposed to be technologically adept!
Competition ends 9th of October.
