Spider identification "is this a False Widow Spider"

Hi guys,

 

I found this little beauty crawling across the carpet, is it a False Widow? It just looks a little different to the normal ones I see.

 

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Phobias,

     

    This isn't a false widow. The picture is a bit blurry, it's hard to tell exactly what it is...may just be a regular house spider (Tegenaria, as it's quite 'leggy'), but if the picture is not too distorted, the markings & shape of the head could point to a male

    Amaurobius species (lace weaver, also found around & sometimes in houses).
