Homespiration - How To Create A Stunning Home Setting

There are new potentials waiting to be discovered in every home no matter if you live in an up-to-the-minute townhouse or old country cottage. 

It’s firmly down to you to find out what those potentials are and make them a reality.

How you do that relies on you being fearless and imaginative, and also employing some canny DIY and TLC. 

Guidance can be sought from other people to fuel you with ideas, if it helps, such as from home influencers, for example. 

Their wisdom is the driving force behind the ‘Homespiration’ we’d like to offer you:

Create an open-plan space

Open-plan living has become so popular amongst Britons that most new-build homes in this country incorporate an open-plan space. In the main, householders use their open-plan area as a kitchen-diner-living space, but there are alternative possibilities. 

If an open-plan layout at home would suit your family lifestyle, sit down and establish whether your old Victorian terrace or semi-detached could be remodelled to accommodate an open-plan area.

You want your open-plan area to have its own distinct atmosphere and to also serve all your practical requirements. Ideally, it should be nice and bright too, and provide a generous amount of spaciousness, whilst also feeling suitably secluded. Remember all of this before you begin remodelling.

Make up a window seat

We all need a break from things from time to time and a spot by the window could be the perfect place to get it. 

Whereas in winter you might sit back in an armchair next to a burning log fire for a bit of ‘me’ time, in summer, you can have a window seat, where you can view the colours of the outdoors and do some people watching. 

Find a window with space underneath for a bench or trunk, which you can cover with a padded base and a couple of cushions. Because of how they’re shaped, bay windows make for a good window seat.

Separate your garden into zones

Much to our disappointment, holidays abroad are off the agenda this summer, but holidaying at home can be a fitting substitute when you really buy into it. 

A large portion of your home holidaying should be spent in the garden (let’s pray the weather is good). If it’s a big garden, you want to split into a trio of zones, with areas dedicated to eating, playing and relaxing. 

Dine like you would abroad by having all your meals in the open air and give the kids the space they need to enjoy their water fights, without them spiralling out of control elsewhere. 

Finish your days off by doing the most British of things, camping out in the garden. Have your tents pitched up and sleeping bags at the ready for turning in outside.
