What’s a bank holiday without the notice for a spot of decorating in your home? The bathroom doesn’t have that same appeal, you want a change of colour scheme, maybe even a whole home refurb.

That extended break gives us the opportunity to complete all those niggling jobs and projects and even gives the time for a rest and a cup of tea in between.

To feel that you’ve achieved something though, be practical and keep any work to a minimum or else you’ll be going to work on the Tuesday with a half complete project which will never get done.

So, make the most of that three-day weekend! You’ll thank us come Monday night when your home is looking great.

Spruce up your kitchen

A new kitchen floor will change the atmosphere and look of a room immediately – vinyl click flooring, such as our Clixeal range, an easy to install water resistant option is ideal. Go traditional with ‘natural oak’ or for something with a modern twist opt for ‘antique white oak’ or ‘smoked ash’.

Get the garden ‘BBQ ready'

Clearing out the winter debris and taming overgrown plants and weeds will go a long way to getting your garden summer ready.

A basic garden shed is straightforward to assemble, or why not opt for your own summer house to laze the days away? The new must have garden accessory can be given a modern twist and homely setting with the help of our Selkie range. See our Pinterest for some inspiration: https://uk.pinterest.com/rearom/garden-party/

Outdoor lighting and a small fire pit will add extra atmosphere to your summer and help you make the most of your garden all year round.


Reupholster simple items, such as chairs seats or foot stools, with the help of some fabric and a staple gun. Give new life to tired looking items!

Plant life

Flowers, the classic summer accessory. Brighten your home with some bright vases and blooms. Another option is to also grow cuttings from the garden and nurture them on the windowsill.

We hope you’re already feeling inspired. Enjoy your long weekend and don’t forget we will be open as normal bank holiday Monday if you are still searching for decorating inspiration!
