For those of us who take pride in the way their home looks, there are few things worse than a room that is too dark. In addition to detracting from the look of a room, a lack of light can have negative psychological effects on the viewer – a dark room isn’t conducive to a positive and cheery atmosphere.
Do you have a couple of rooms that don’t get a lot of natural light? Maybe you have some interior design plans for your home? Or perhaps you’ve just moved into your house and discovered that some spaces are lacking light? Then here are a few tips to introduce more light into your home. Read more
Regular readers of mine will probably know that we moved to our forever home, coming up to three years ago now. My in-laws had done a great job of getting it to where it was when we moved in, but there were some rooms which really needed updating. We redecorated all of the bedrooms, the living room, and the kitchen; but one room we haven’t really touched on is the bathroom. Don’t get me wrong, my in-laws had it updated around 10 years ago (thank goodness – it was an awful avocado green colour before that!) but I would love to remodel it ourselves one day. But, that will probably be quite a
few lot of years down the line.
I’m a bit of a daydreamer though and I do have a few wishful makeover posts already on the blog; my visions of a loft library, an office wish list, and an outdoorsy one with a patio makeover. So of course, I have to share my bathroom dreams with you. The main theme of my bathroom would be light & airy, to be both relaxing & comforting. In an ideal world with unlimited funds, we’d probably have to build a separate one for the kids, so they don’t spoil ours! Read more
Since we moved into our forever home a couple of years ago, we have constantly been doing something to at least one of the rooms in our house. We have just had our dining room ceiling replastered after it fell to earth around the same time we moved in! One “room” we haven’t actually accessed yet, is the loft. It’s a right pain to get into with our super high ceilings, and being accessed from the bathroom it’s not ideal. If we ever had the pennies to renovate it though, I know exactly what
we I would do with it – turn it into my very own loft library! Read more
As a mum, the responsibility falls on you to keep the metre running. If the kids need food, you have to turn on the oven. If the house is too cold, you have to switch on the central heating. Homes rely on energy, and that is a fact. What is also a fact is that energy prices are increasing. Since 2010, they have gone up steadily and show no signs of stopping. To an average household, this means extortionate bills and fewer bangs for their buck.
Thankfully, there are ways to keep energy down, and the kitchen is the place to start. Read more
