Much has been made of the fact that more and more of us in the UK are improving rather than moving at present, due to the state of the housing market, but that means we need to think carefully about what improvements we make and how much we spend on them.
According to Stuff, we’re “collectively becoming choosier and more considered in the way we style our homes”. That translates to quality over quantity – something we can well believe when you consider that growing numbers of us are looking for ways to declutter our homes.
However, while decluttering is great, we still want to keep some items that we love – these can bring style to our space.
That approach to quality can be applied to any area of our homes, such as by using bespoke banisters instead of just opting for the first ones we can find in the DIY store.
While this option may cost a little bit more, it’s worth it for the end result, which is a home you love and one that reflects your unique style and character.
Wood features in a number of the top interiors trends at the moment, including Scandi-style, Hygge and the bohemian idea of bringing the outside in.
In fact, exposed woodwork is one of the best trends to adopt if you’re looking to make your living space feel cosier, House and Garden recently revealed. Of course, in order for this to have the desired effect, you need the wood you’re showcasing to be of the highest quality, returning to the importance of what you’re spending your money on.
