kitchen home tour

Another installment of my current home tour (now that we’ve sold up!) This time I’ll take you on a tour of our kitchen family room.

This room was initially 2 rooms, but as you can see, with garden access from both rooms, it was screaming for a bit of a Grand Designs.  Bi folding doors would’ve looked amazing.  Something that we never got round to before we sold.

We got to pick our kitchen and we paid to change the layout from the original plans.  Knowing that we were taking down the dividing wall,  we moved the breakfast bar and put the fridge/freezer oven and microwave in its place.

This was our second new build, so we did all the little things to the kitchen that we wish we did first time round.  Things such as soft close hinges (they weren’t standard!), corner carousel, in built wire baskets and plenty of wine storage!

We spend most of our time in this room and I just love it.

What I Love Most About This Room

I adore the high polished floor tiles (a pain to clean) and the heated floor.  I love the wallpaper, the wall art, window display, double oven and the understair storage.  We really put alot of thought into this room and I hope the new owners appreciate it as much as we do.

All our media boxes are hidden upstairs, which is such a bonus.  All accessible by remote sensors.

Everytime I write a room tour, it breaks my heart to think about leaving it all behind.

Summer is Coming! Get Your Lawn Ready With BLACK + DECKER

April 22, 2014

black & decker 3 in 1 mower

As BLACK + DECKER are my Britmums live sponsor, I’m excited to bring you news of yet another innovative product.

A new concept for gardeners with smaller lawns or difficult-to-mow areas has been launched by BLACK+DECKER. The 3-IN-1 is a combined string trimmer, edging tool and mower, providing maximum versatility for a range of grass-cutting tasks.

Ideal if you have a smaller lawn, garden flat, or city home where perhaps your storage is at a premium, the ingenious 3-IN-1 from BLACK+DECKER combines the convenience, light weight and small footprint of a string trimmer with the stability and ease of use of a mower.

For difficult to reach spaces, such as small walled gardens, turfed frontages, as well as steep inclines or uneven ground, this easy to manoeuvre combi tool solves a multitude of lawn care conundrums.

The 3-IN-1 can be used as a conventional Strimmer® to tackle the tougher, more overgrown areas of a garden – and can then be quickly converted to edging mode, to achieve precisely perfect lawn edges, assisted by the built-in guide wheel.

For ultimate versatility in small lawn areas, the user can simply click the string trimmer into the lightweight, height-adjustable four-wheeled base, for more controlled and consistent cutting.

Available as a complete kit including detachable base and integrated edge cutting wheel, the 3-IN-1 can be quickly and effortlessly assembled as required, and dismantled after use for easy storage. And thanks to its compact footprint and form, the space-saving 3-IN-1 is small enough to be stowed away in a utility room or cupboard and won’t take up precious floor space in a shed or garage.

The 3-IN-1 is available in either electric powered (corded) at £79.99 or cordless 18V Li-ion £139.99 versions, whilst the wheeled deck will also be available as an optional accessory, compatible with a range of BLACK+DECKER string trimmers.

Award-winning innovation and quality

The BLACK+DECKER 3-IN-1 has been recognised with a Plus X Award for its exceptional innovation, high quality, functionality and ease of use. Plus X is the world’s largest innovation awards organisation for technology, sports and lifestyle products, and honours manufacturers for outstanding attributes in design and usability.

Sebastian Starck, director of marketing at Plus X, said, “The BLACK+DECKER 3-IN-1 is one of only a small number of products to receive an award in four categories. Recipients of Plus X awards must display a combination of utmost quality with leading-edge innovation. The 3-IN-1 easily met these criteria with its excellent, pioneering design and simplicity of use.”

Now in its 11th year, the Plus X jury comprises a panel of renowned, independent trade journalists from across 25 industries, and its awards are considered a recognised and respected ‘seal of quality’.

BLACK+DECKER 3-IN-1 features at a glance:

• Extremely versatile: trim, edge and mow with one tool
• Durable, easily attachable/detachable four-wheeled base
• Compact footprint for easy storage in a utility room or cupboard
• Easy to assemble and dismantle – simply click the string trimmer into the base
• Lighter, cost-effective alternative to a full mower
• More flexibility, stability and control than a Strimmer
• Easy to manoeuvre and control for all surfaces
• Height-adjustable base to suit a multitude of tasks
• Controlled Edge Mode for neater, more precise results
• No hovering required – ideal for people who may struggle with a Strimmer
• Perfect for use on uneven ground or steep inclines, as well as small or awkward spaces
• Base can be bought separately – compatible with any Black & Decker 28-30cm string trimmer

Splurge Vs Save | Tolix Bar Stool

splurge vs save tolix bar stool

Time for another Splurge Vs Save, showing you how to get a stylish home for less.  This week……Tolix bar stools.

I first fell in love with this style of bar stool on TK Maxx, where they were selling mustard coloured ones (my favourite colour) for £30. I kick myself daily for not buying them at the time, as I can’t find them as cheap as that now.

Tolix Stool Splurge

Designed in 1934 by Xavier Pauchard, the Tolix stool is a bit of an icon of the times.  You can pick them up from a few online retailers, however Graham & Green are selling Tolix Stools from £188 at the moment (for white, £204 for steel).

Tolix Stool Save

Trusty Lakeland Furniture thankfully sell Tolix style replica stools, which you can get in a variety of colours for as little as £45.99.  Ok, so it isn’t the ‘real deal’, but at least this way if it goes out of fashion you aren’t crying into your pillow quite so much over it.

Happy Saving!
