Earlier this year I wrote a post on my goals for 2015. One of these was to redecorate every room in my house. At the moment we are concentrating on our bedroom and bathroom.
So far we have invested in a new bed and mattress with the money we were gifted at our wedding. As well as some lovely new bedding and pillows… it’s lush! If you want to take a look at what we got you can read my post on our bedroom buys here.
I’m always buying second hand and have never bought quality items for the bedroom. In particular I really want a new bedside table and wardrobe and chest of drawers. The ones we have now are perfectly fine, but they belonged to my parents and are getting a little worse for wear.
I’ve found some lovely items in Next and if budget allows it I’d like to buy something like this…
Another item on my wish list is new blinds for the window. The ones we have at the moment were already there when we moved in and I’m getting pretty bored of them! They are dark brown wood and I find them pretty dull.
I’m trying to freshen our house up with paler colours like whites, greys and neutrals, with hints of metallics. I definitely think we will go for a white venetian blind in the bedroom.
As we are also working on our bathroom at the moment we have thought about adding a roof window above the bath. Our bathroom is an extension and has a slanted roof where a window would look really modern and fresh. After doing a bit of research I have found some lovely roof windows and blinds at VELUX. Definitely something for us to consider.
As we have a very small bathroom we are don’t have much room for storage. We are going for a vanity sink unit which will give us a fair amount of storage, so I just need somewhere for soaps and spare toiletries etc. Something like this will be ideal, plus it ‘s the exact colour scheme we are going for. White with hints of blue/green.
We are actually getting a whole new bathroom (I can’t wait!) so I’ll keep you posted on the progress. At the moment it is tileless and pretty dusty!
After the bedroom and the bathroom are done it’s on to the cellar! This is going be more of a utility room. It has out freezer and tumble dryer in there at the mo, but I’d like to set it up better so I can have different baskets for the laundry and ironing etc.
Stay tuned for more home improvements posts!
