Get the beach feeling at home

All beached out?

With most of us plumping for a UK based holiday this year, the UK tourist economy starts to make its long overdue recovery. Whilst the UK may not be as sunny as the Med, we have been extremely fortunate with some lovely weather and made some great memories. With the sound of the sea still ringing in our ears, coming home to everyday life (even if it’s the new ‘Norm’ that no one is yet quite sure of) can be a little disappointing.

In these unprecedented times there are thousands of disappointed people across the UK who have had their foreign summer holidays cancelled due to Covid-19.

Aghhh… Why does my space feel so small?

The Uk’s children have now been home for about 17 weeks and we are only just starting the summer holidays… This is unprecedented times and even though restrictions are being lift gradually our homes are still our safe place. Whilst we may be cleaning and sanitising more regularly the space can still feel small due to the amount of daily clutter that is building up. Decluttering the space we have that can often feel cramped, can instantly give us the feeling of space we never even knew that we had. No matter how neat and tidy you naturally are, it's all too easy for clutter to pile up in your home.

Letting light into your home

Let the light in

What ever your space if its dark it looks smaller so let’s go ahead and let the light in.

Throw open the curtains

Simply ensuring that the maximum amount of light is coming in through your widows is essential. Heavy dark coloured curtains reflect into the room and curb the amount of light coming in. Visually add light – by cleaning the windows & throwing open the curtains you can let the light in.

OMG The night before a delivery… Will it fit into my house?

 

Whilst we all think about fitting furniture pieces into the room of your choice but, do we more importantly think about actually getting them in to the house? The answer is usually no… we assume and we all know what assuming does…

Its a Drawer...

26 May 2020 01:14:24

Now we have all had time to de-clutter…

Well in the current situation I am sure that most of us will have found the time to clear out/tidy at least one drawer in our home… if not all of them.

Drawers can be found all over our homes and whilst the humble chest of drawers is probably the most flexible piece of furniture you have in your home, it can sometimes be out of sight out of mind…. We all have a Junk Drawer littered with half used batteries, that key that we don’t know which lock it fits and some form of foreign currency (that’s probably out of date)! Literally you can use a chest of drawers in every room in your house... the trick is just not to fill them with junk…

Balancing education, entertainment, and for some, medical care, can be massively overwhelming for parents and carers, but for children its confusing.
