Homespiration - How To Transform Your Home Into Your Dream Setting

You will never have seen quite so much of your home as you have done over the past few weeks. You hopefully haven’t grown too bored of the place, but if you have, it needs a shake-up. 

Without even seeing your property, we can tell you that it has so much potential, it’s just a case of bringing that potential out, which can be done with TLC, DIY and some great imagination. 

If you’re not creatively-minded, home influencers are a great source for ‘Homespiration’. 

The home interior design insight they offer has been useful for us when compiling these ideas you can pinch to transform your four walls in an exciting fashion:

Adopt open-plan living

You’re well behind the times if you don’t have an open-plan space in your home. New-build properties virtually all have an open-plan space of some kind, most often used as a kitchen-diner-living space by the typical British household. 

You can play catch-up though and establish an open-plan area by remodelling your old Victorian terrace or semi-detached home to enjoy functional and more interactive home living. 

Open-plan areas are renowned for having a distinct atmosphere and they must offer practicality on every level. You want your open-plan space to also be bright and spacious enough, while also providing cosiness and privacy.

Create a window seat

This is a rare opportunity to share time with the family, but you do need some ‘me’ time too. 

Where you would get it in winter is perhaps sat next to a roaring log fire. In summer, it would be more fitting to park yourself on a window seat. 

You should have a window in the house with space underneath for a bench or trunk that you can add a padded base too, along with some cushions, to curl up on. 

Take a few minutes there to catch-up on a book you’ve been reading or to just gaze out of the window and look at the lovely colours of spring. 

Have zones in the garden

We are on the cusp of summer, but unfortunately, it looks like none of us will be holidaying abroad. 

There’s lots of fun to be had on a home holiday though and your garden will be a component in it all. If it’s a good size, think about splitting it into three separate zones, with areas where you can dine, play and relax. 

Eating amongst the sunshine is a must on any holiday and the kids need plenty of space they can play in, whether it’s for just running around or taking a dip in their paddling pool.

When it’s time to turn in for the night, why not do it outside? The relaxing zone is where you can do some camping and put up your tents, which the kids will absolutely love doing.

If any of these ‘Homespirations’ sound like what your home needs and you want some assistance with them, we’re just reopened our Kendal showroom where you can talk face-to-face with Planet to discuss things.
