Designing Your Dream Kitchen

Creating A Beautiful Kitchen
Your Kitchen is the heart of your home. It’s usually the first place your friends or family gather when they come over for a coffee and chat. A beautifully decorated kitchen can also improve the overall value of your home if you ever want to sell it.

I’ve got lots of kitchen ideas and tips to share with you, from choosing the best appliances such as juicers, coffee makers and microwaves, to finding the best furniture and lighting for creating the perfect mood on cosy dinner nights with family and friends.

Keeping Your Home Clean & Tidy

Keeping Your Home Clean & Tidy
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “A Clean Home Is A Happy Home!” It’s true, when you take care and pay attention to keeping everything looking clean and fresh, you feel better about where you live.

Apart from my passion for interior design I also love gadgets. I especially love the kind of gadgets you can use for keeping your humble abode nice and clean. Some of these include powerful vacuum cleaners, air purifiers & conditioners, and steam mops.

Over the years I’ve also picked up some great tips for organic cleaning. You don’t always have to use cleaning products with harsh or dangerous chemicals in them. You can get most things clean with good old baking soda and white vinegar.

Bedroom Ideas For Better Sleeping

Beautiful Bedroom Ideas

You spend a third of your life in bed so it’s pays dividends to invest in a high quality bed and mattress. Your bedroom is the place you go to relax and unwind after a long day.

It should have a cosy, warm feel and be calming and peaceful enough for you to rest in complete comfort.

Create The Perfect Lighting

Chandelier Lighting For Your Home
Good lighting around your living areas is really important for your health and well-being. Did you know that you can change the whole atmosphere of a room just by changing the lighting?

A good table lamp can allow you to read your favorite books in comfort or let you surf the web on your laptop without straining your eyes.

Alternatively a nice chandelier sparkling brilliantly above your dining table can really add some extra pizzazz to your dinner parties or other special evening entertainment you’ve planned for your guests. They’ll be totally wowed by the luxurious feel and majestic ambience it brings to the room.

Smart Home Ideas & Security Solutions

Smart Home Ideas
Most modern homes make use of at least one or two smart devices to make living more efficient and comfortable.  Personally I love gadgets so I’ve got smart devices everywhere in my house.

My heating is controlled from an app on my smart phone and I can also turn my lights on and off remotely using a similar app.

I even have a hi-tech wireless CCTV system that works over WiFi and allows me to monitor what’s going on around my property when I’m not there. Enjoy complete peace of mind when you’re out of town.
