It’s spring – Refresh your bedroom with these design ideas

With winter gradually retreating into the rear view mirror (not that you’d be able to tell by the recent bout of cold weather) and spring beginning to emerge, many people’s thoughts turn towards revamping the home.

The prospect of a new year encouraging a fresh start, along with the mid season sales making it more affordable, make it one of the most popular periods to freshen up surroundings. Why not start your home makeover with the room where you wake up every morning? Here are some suggestions for the best ways to give your bedroom a new look.

Choosing your style

The main question to ask is what kind of style you want for your bedroom. Perhaps choose a timeless, traditional country bedroom, where old-style wood furniture and natural colour schemes are emphasised along with plenty of layered, embroidered bed linen and vintage-looking cushions. Various pieces of handicrafts and ornaments also contribute to the ‘lived-in’ feel. This aesthetic works particularly well in a room with lots of natural sunlight; nothing beats a Sunday lie-in nestled within your own little slice of the idyllic countryside.

Alternative looks

For those with more cutting-edge tastes, there are plenty of alternative looks to suit your room. Focus on vibrant, strong shades to provide intensity, and look for furniture with smooth lines and modern construction materials. In contrast to the homely country house look, you should aim to create as little clutter as possible; minimal design is the order of the day, with sliding-door wardrobes and under-bed storage highly recommended.

Finding the balance

For the more adventurous, there’s always a possibility of mixing modern with traditional – which can be a difficult task but one that makes a room feel uniquely yours, if done right. It’s all about finding the balance between complementary items, while still providing enough contrast to be striking. The range of bedroom furniture at K&Co offers a variety of modern and classic designs for those who want to try to mix it up – a useful aid for creating your new look.

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop. 

Tissue paper poppy badges

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers. This year MadDad will also be marching in his capacity as Manager of the U7's football team.  We are great believers in remembering what people have done for us and the boys have been busy making tissue paper poppies at Beavers.
