using red tiles for colour in the home

Inject Some Colour Into Your Home

I love colour in the home – from my bright red rug that welcomes guests into the hallway to my purple sofas and colourful artwork on the walls. But I seem to be in a minority. That’s not to say that my home is a blinding clash of colours – it is a relaxing space with neutral walls (French Grey and Slaked Lime from Little Greene are my favourites) and a mix of contemporary oak floors and large white porcelain tiles that provide a calming background to my pops of colour.

Are you passionate about interior design? Are you constantly updating the look of your rooms to keep up with the latest trends in the UK home improvement market? If so you might find yourself falling into the trap of getting carried away with the amount of money you spend on the interior whilst paying little or no regard to the appearance of the exterior of the property, yet it is just as important to enhance the exterior of your home.

Tips To Make Your Conservatory Cosy and Functional All Year Round

Conservatory construction really took off in the 70s, and during that time, the glass-panelled wonder quickly established itself as the best way to add value to a home. Unfortunately, conservatories are a notoriously difficult room to work with. They are sweltering hot in summer and bitterly cold in winter, and as a result, they often become a neglected part of the home. The first sign of damp often leads many homeowners to pull out all of the furniture, and suddenly the conservatory is little more than an ornate garden shed. If you want to avoid this fate for your conservatory space, there are a few steps you need to take before this often neglected room can become an idyllic space throughout the year.

How to Declutter your Home – The Ultimate Guide

When you enter your home, you want to come in to a place that promotes peace and calm after a busy day. Whether you are returning home from work, a school run, or shopping, when you enter a house that has had a good declutter you will find it is easier to relax and enjoy the space that you live in. When your house is untidy and cluttered, it can make you feel on edge as you are surrounded by things that you may not really want and need. Even if you have a cluttered house that is actually tidy (with lots of careful storage!), there is still the dreaded moment of opening the cupboards to try and find something that you are looking for that is buried beneath clutter. Living in a clutter free home definitely will make life less stressful, make it easier to find things and there are many ways this can be achieved.
