Transforming Your Home (On A Budget)

After a long and depressing winter, we’re finally getting the weather we deserve and we can relax and enjoy this wonderful time of year. Herefordshire is certainly a stunning and wonderful place to be surrounded by vibrant colours from fields of oil seed rape, cherry and apple blossom, lush green fields and trees. It’s that time of year when we also put the love and energy into our home….making it feel alive and inviting.

Whatever the project, be it your favourite room or a more extensive home refurbishment, we’ve put together a few tips to help you optimise your budget and get the best results.


Paint

Painting is such an easy and affordable way to change the feel and look of your home.  From painting skirting boards a lively colour, to sprucing up a front door, to creating a bold feature wall – there are SO many ways to make an instant impact! With over 900 colours available from 6 different suppliers, we’re confident you will discover the colour for you. With the help of our Little Greene mixing machine you are even able to walk away from our showroom with stunning paints to get you going!

To give you an idea, below we have listed prices for 5 litres of standard matt emulsion:-

  • Fired Earth – £67.50 (+£4.95 for home delivery)

  • Sanderson – £74

  • Little Greene – £77 (Our favourite… and decorators agree!)

  • Mylands – £81 (+£4.95 for home delivery)

  • Zoffany – £82

Wallpaper

Whilst wallpaper is not as versatile as paint, there are so many stunning patterns and designs that will enrich your walls and make the added cost and trouble well worthwhile.

Here are some of our favourites from our Little Greene collection. Prices are per roll:-
