09 Dec 5 Curious Things About London Homes
You may find it weird that London Homes don’t look like your standard house. Be careful as a young tourist, pay attention to the photos of your future short term rental…
Many things are different in London Homes, simple things that we take for granted about our houses and living spaces here are a little strange : The inordinate love for carpet ? Why hot & cold are separated in the bathroom ? Whose are the gnomes in the garden ?
Separated Hot & Cold in the Bathroom
We aren’t going to give you the technical explanation (it’s a little bit boring), but a gossip about that fact : After WWII, British People have adopted advanced plumbing technology… They argue that having choice of either hot or cold for washing is an incentive to get it over and done with and not waste water 😉
Something commemorating Charles and Diana’s wedding
Sense of patriotism is an important value in United Kingdom. Popularity of the royal family is huge and their smallest deeds and gestures have a big influence in all the british home… Sometimes a little bit too much…
Loves for carpet
This is a British obsession.. You can’t fail to notice the carpets all over the place in the UK. From the passport check area at Heathrow airport, to the floors of government buildings… Brits loves carpet and put it everywhere : floor, wall and sometimes in the bathroom !
Gnomes in the Garden
At the beginning, Gnomes were a luxury trend in UK… Yes it’s true. People who had gardens and a little bit of money, who perhaps wanted to inject some interest and garden fun !
No Coffee Machine
Two statistic which explain all the rest :
* Britons drink 165 million cups of tea a day;
* Since 1945, all British tanks have come equipped with tea making facilities.
In conclusion, if you want to have coffee you have to fight against years of tea culture impregnation 🙂
