AUGUST PHOTO ALBUM- BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!
Inspiration for improving your home on a budget.
The quickest way to show visible improvement to the aesthetics of your home is to focus on the following areas:
1/- Repair anything that is broken such as guttering, roof tiles, gates, fences, faucets, doors or cabinets.
2/- Throw away rubbish and take unwanted items to the tip, advertise or donate items. De-clutter your belongings so that your storage areas can be more organised and you are mindful of what you have for when you need it.
3/- Restore any furniture pieces you wish to keep, put floor protectors on your chair legs, clean and protect fabrics and leathers. Steam clean rugs and carpets.
4/- Re-grout tiled areas, re-surface tops and replace tap ware and mirrors that have tarnished.
5/- Replace carpet and lighting with LED if down lighting, if CFL ensure the colour is the same throughout the house, warm or day white. Warm is ambient and less bright, Day is clearer and brighter. Do not use cool lighting which has a blue undertone.
Add feature lights over the island bench, dining table or powder room.
6/- Update your style with art placement, throws and cushions. Your bed linen styling may need an update too. Create a drop zone.
7/- Update your garden by tidying and focusing on the areas that are a feature such as by the front door and any areas visible from inside to create an attractive aspect.
8/- Wash the walls and paint any marked walls. A less expensive painting solution is to repaint with the same colour and just do the walls that must be done. If your paint colour is tired or incompatible with the home choose a new colour that can be applied throughout and apply room by room to update, beginning with the front entry and living areas.
9/- Clean your windows. Update window coverings with what you can afford in the right colour and style. Roller blinds and Venetian blinds are the most affordable solutions. If choosing 1 roller blind, a block out on bedrooms and translucent on living areas would be a good choice. Venetian blinds offer both varied light and block out with the 1 blind. There will be a small amount of light around the outside edge of the blinds in both cases when fitted into a window recess.
10/- Love your home more. A loved home is clean, tidy and full of the things you love. Feeling grateful for what we have brings more joy into our lives. ... See MoreSee Less

JULY PHOTO ALBUM- VIRTUAL DESIGN.
Virtual display homes, sustainable house tours and product selections allow you to see everything without leaving your home. The service of converting your floor plan to a virtual one you can walk through is also offered independently by specialist companies for your existing, new home or renovation.
This month I have shared three examples of virtual viewing for home design and encourage you to visit and explore these sites to become familiar with researching more of what is out there without leaving home.
I have also shared one of the best websites for lighting product selections as an example of how companies are offering customers more information such as accurate images, product specifications, which bulbs to use, style inspiration and virtual assistance online to make purchasing from home easier. ...
