Bring Some New Life Into Your Home's Unappreciated Spaces

We all want to be able to get the most out of our homes. After all, if you're going to be spending the majority of your time somewhere then it's only natural to want to make sure that it's the most pleasant and comfortable space possible. That being said, a lot of us tend to fall into the habit of only really focusing on certain parts of our homes rather and ignoring others. When that happens, it can undo a lot of the hard work that you've done elsewhere and leave you feeling frustrated and unhappy in your home. With that in mind, here are some under appreciated spaces in your home that you might want to show a little more love to in the future.

Your bathroom

The bathroom is probably the single most unappreciated room in your home despite just how important it is. The trouble is that most of the time we tend to think of our bathrooms purely in terms of function rather than in terms of form. That being said, there are a lot of things that you can do in order to help bring your bathroom back to life. Replacing the tiling around your bathroom can make a huge difference. Something like a White Sparkle Shower Panel can make it feel a whole lot brighter and cleaner. The same goes for replacing some of the fittings in your bathroom like the taps. Old and grimy looking taps are always going to drag the look of your bathroom down.

Your attic

For most of us, the attic is little more than a space to store things and dump whatever we don't want to think about. However, you could be using it so much more effectively. Lots of people have found the benefits of converting their attics into useable spaces that can function as an office, a spare room, or just somewhere to kick back and relax. Not only that but it's a great way to add value to your home as well.

Your kitchen

The kitchen is another room that we tend to only really think about in terms of function but the truth is that it's often the real hub of the house, which means that you're going to want to take better care of it. Things like bringing as much light into your kitchen as possible and painting it bright colours can help to make it feel so much more alive. If you're stuck in a dark and dingy kitchen then you're going to end up resenting every second you spend hunched over the stove.

The most important thing to remember is that you need to treat your home like a single space. It's all too easy to fall into the habit of only really thinking about the rooms in your home as individual spaces rather than pieces of a greater whole. Think about how the rooms complement one another and how they flow into each other. Only then are you going to be able to create a home that you're really happy with.

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

Spending ban - Ideas to cutting back...

- this post contains affiliate links - You may have noticed a couple of my tweets recently that I am shamefully on a 'Spending Ban'. Now, this is something both Mark and I have come to agreement on, as looking at our recent credit card statements we I, have been a little too fluid with the spends lately. So, we are putting a little 'ban' on for a few weeks! Seriously do not know how I am going to cope!! Haha... Only joking! But it did get me to thinking though about where to cut back on everyday things and where each of us can save here and there. Especially at the moment where there's hardly any interest on savings and things do seem to be getting more and more expensive! So here's a bit of random list! Nothing in any particular order, just little ideas where we can all cut back in our every day lives! ********** * First of all - I know I said no particular order, but this ones a definite first and then it
