Making changes to the house in time for spring

Rustic Home

I don’t know about you, but it definitely feels like spring is on its way.

No sooner have the snowdrops appeared, but the daffodils are following closely behind and I saw my first blooms of the year yesterday.

Seeing spring starting to appear has turned my thoughts to start making some changes to the house, one of which was part of my 19 goals for 2019 challenge.

We have an extension on the back of the house which is used as our playroom / games room and sometimes dining room. It is a brilliant extra space, however the doors that lead into it are like something from the 1970’s and I have been desperate to replace them with something more practical ever since we moved in.

Next week, our battered old doors will be replaced with some bi-fold beauties which will not only take up less space, but will also let more light into the lounge and I am keen to turn our extension into more of a dining room, with good storage options, now that the kids don’t have so many toys.

I have been busy perusing rustic home trends for inspiration on what to do with the space as I like the practicality of using natural materials like wood and leather, which not only look good, but are easy to maintain and clean with kids in the house.

Getting a country home vibe is one of the easiest styles to achieve and Fishpools, the largest furniture store in the South East, provides a wide
range of quality furniture and home accessories for inspiration, from sofas, dining ranges, bedroom collections and more.

By opting for natural materials and the addition of second-hand, upcycled or home-made accessories, it has never been easier to bring a cosy, country feel to your home in time for spring.

  1. Can’t wait for the end results!!! 🙂

  2. I’m desperate to do some redecorating this year. We’ve been in our house for almost three years but haven’t painted a single wall yet
