How To Still Have Garden Life In The City

City living is great for a lot of reasons. I know I love it compared to small town life. Most cities are exciting places to be. You can pop out for a coffee, or a meal, whenever you fancy. You never have to miss out because the bus times were wrong, or you had no way of getting there. Plus points aside (and, honestly, there are a lot of them!) there are some not so great things. Sometimes, city living can get on top of you. We all need peace and quiet sometimes. And, something that’s a particular problem when the sun starts shining; outside space can be hard to come by. I know this at the moment, especially as sometimes when the sun comes out I miss my garden!

The bathroom is definitely one of the most used rooms in any home, and it has a huge influence on our daily activities. However, it’s also a room that tends to get ignored as we can often turn our attention to the living room or bedrooms. In reality, though, this part of the home should be updated every few years at least. So if your bathroom has gone a long time without receiving the affection it deserves, now’s the time to make a change!

How To Bring The Outside, Inside

Have you ever gone out and seen decor in a bar or restaurant that you’ve thought would suit your own home? Well, if you have, why stop one with just one piece of decor — why not give your home a revamp and renovation inspired by the interior you’ve seen.

Give your kitchen a revamp by giving it a bistro and restaurant-style makeover. You could start by giving your kitchen a black and white colour scheme. Turn your walls white and then bring in cabinets, counter tops, and titles that all provide black accents. You should also adorn your counter tops with marble surfaces, in order to give your bistro kitchen that all important ‘expensive’ look, even when it wasn’t necessarily that expensive to create. All of this, however, should sit on top of typical café flooring. You could pick from an array of styles, such as hardwood or white tiles. What instantly screams ‘bistro’, however, is black and white flooring. Do black and white squares not conjure up images of restaurants and kitchens in Paris to you? Well, you can step into Paris every time you step into your kitchen by following these tips.

3 Quick Kitchen Revamping Ideas

Upgrading and renovating your home is always a pricey thing to think about but you can make small changes every now and again when you can afford it, and they all add up to result in a gorgeous home that’s full of your own personality. Here are 3 tips to help you upgrade your kitchen for less. 1. Add Plants
This is my favourite tip for almost any room in a home that needs a little update! Adding faux or fresh plants and flowers really lift any room. And, as a bonus, you can get creative with your plant pots. By adding some materials like copper and silver-coloured plant pots you can really add some Scandi-cool vibes to your kitchen. I love cacti, succulents, and spider plants! 2. Fresh Utensils & Appliances Scour homeware websites and supermarkets for discounted and sale home appliances or just invest in a fresh toaster and kettle set and you’ll be surprised what £100 worth of new gadgets can do to a kitchen. Forget about that expensive renovation and just focus on small additions and remember to keep them clean. Everything looks better after a good clean, too! Plus, if you’ve got some manky wooden spoons and a melted spatula sitting in a jar next to your stove then it’s bound to look a bit naff, pick some new new spoons for a couple of pounds next time you’re in a homeware store and your whole kitchen will be instantly lifted! 3. Upgrade Your Metallics  Something small that can really lift a kitchen is the addition of some new metallic elements as they’re super shiny and will make your entire kitchen look like new! The easiest way to do this is to upgrade your cupboard handles if they’re metal and also your kitchen taps! You can pick up some new taps for between £100-175 from an online store such as Superbath who stock affordable and quality brands like Grohe. For a couple of weeks saving (and a few lew cocktails on a Friday night), you could have a super swish new kitchen taps and a fresh looking sink! Once you’ve scrubbed up your sink with some metal cleaner and added some sparkle, it’ll be as good as new. Obviously, if you know a kitchen fitter or a plumber that will do you some mates rates on the fitting that would save you, even more, pennies!
