It’s coming up for 4 months since my dad passed away. He and my mum had lots of plans on decorating and revamping their old miner’s cottage, that was built in the 1800’s. Sadly he will never get to see the work done on it., but my older sister and I are going to help mum to carry on with the work that needs doing. Dad would have wanted it finished and it will be a nice change for mum.
The thing about miners cottages is that they are not the biggest of houses. Back in the day when the tin mines were working in the area my parents live in, many men, women and children all lived together under the same roof. When Mr B visits he has to duck his head otherwise he will hit the beams in the ceiling. So you have to look outside the box as to where you can save space. One of the ways to save space is to have bespoke stairs fitted from a staircase manufacturers. Dad was always going on about having a spiral staircase put in he always liked the look of those.

Everybody gets excited when summer approaches. The sun shines down, there’s the occasional day on which it’s warm enough for a barbeque or a garden party, and everyone just seems happier and more relaxed. Of course, the sun might not shine too favorably on your house if it’s in bad shape. Many people focus on spring cleaning, but you might need to go one step further than this to get your home prepared for summer. If you’re going to have guests over and spend lots of days in the garden then you need to make sure that your household looks summer-esque. Here’s how to make your home look glamorous during the sunny season.
It’s not just the contents of the fridge that needs a look at expiration dates. Did you know that a number of household items have recommended times to change them out? We have specialist designer of kitchens in Glasgow, DM Designs, give us virtual tour of a house, seeking out which items need replacing.
Cleaning up the kitchen
Item: Fridges & washing machines
How long before you should replace them: Between 15 and 30 years, depending on the manufacturer
Washing machines and fridges have a long lifespan. Depending on the manufacturer that you’ve opted for, these essential items of your kitchen or utility room could remain effective for between 15 and 30 years after you first purchased it new.
But you will want to start shopping for a new washing machine or fridge at around the 15 year mark. This is because fridges and washing machines built today are known to use a lot less energy than models that were manufactured even 12 years ago.
So while you won’t need to switch your fridge regularly, if you have a water filter with your fridge, look to switch that twice a year. This is due to these filters collecting bacteria and building up mould over time.
How hard is it to design a toddlers bedroom?
In our old house we decorated the nursery before baby girl arrived. When we moved into our new house we didn’t think much about her bedroom to begin with as we had the whole house to sort out. Plus she spends more time in our bed in our room than her own.
Now that baby dottie is here we are thinking about designing our second largest bedroom for them to share. I grew up sharing a bedroom with my sister and loved all the fun times we had together. I would love my girls to have the same experience we did.
