Whether you live in a studio apartment with a pot plant or a mansion with extensive grounds, there is always some way to make your house feel just that little bit more like home.
No longer just the forte of the interior designer, these days with the help of some home improvement TV shows and magazines, you can get a really good idea of your personal style and learn how to create it in your own home. From feature walls in your living room, to creative storage solutions in the guest room, every area of the house has potential for making more of the space you have. Of course, if you would rather leave it to the professionals, there are plenty out there!
Australians are all about the great outdoors and we take great pride in our gardens. So, it really doesn’t matter if we’re planting herbs on a balcony or creating a landscaping masterpiece complete with statues and a water feature – we are going to make sure we have the right advice, tools, or assistance to make our patch of the outside world as good as it can be.
Household appliances and furniture might start out as necessities but, as things that we look at or use so regularly, they are prone to transcend the practical and become much loved items and even heirlooms. The objects in our home can range from major investments like fridges and ovens, to more visual features, such as curtains and artwork, right through to electrical appliances that we update more often, like kettles and toasters. There are some parts of our home that we couldn’t imagine being without, and some parts that we can only imagine owning… like 1500 thread count Egyptian cotton linen. We all deserve to enjoy things in our home that are closest to us – and if we get them on sale, that’s even better!
Very few of us can say that we have a perfect house. It can tend to feel like there is always something that needs to be done around the home, be it adding an extra room or even a new floor to the house, painting a back deck, or having a leaking tap fixed.
