There’s never been a better time to rip up that old worn carpet – uncover your floorboards and give them a new lease of life. Floorboards are less expensive to maintain than carpet plus being more hygienic as stains (even oil) can be wiped off. If you have bright walls, consider painting the floor bright to match, not only does this give a classic timeless look, but it also tricks the eye and makes the room appear bigger.

For a minimalist vibe that never goes out of fashion (or ideal if your letting or renting) try Floorboard Paint – the classic colours will make any pops of colour stand out even more.

Or go vibrant and make a statement with our new Utility Paint. Not only is it hard-wearing and spill resistant – there’s 40 colours to choose from, so you can make your home unique to you.

 

 

 

A fresh coat of paint on your walls and skirting can work wonders to an interior. The walls of a room are more than likely to be one of the first things people notice especially if they are marked, chipped or appear otherwise uncared for. Make sure they complement your interior and make your home feel welcoming.

Whether your aim is white bright chic or dark statement colours Rust-Oleum Chalky Wall Paint is the perfect paint for the job. The finish is also scrubbable (rare for chalk paints), which means you can remove stubborn stains without damaging the paint finish.

  

 

Why spend a ton of money buying new furniture when you can upcycle and give purpose to an item that would have otherwise been scrapped. There are no limits when it comes to your furniture – go bold and quirky to match the style throughout your house or keep it muted and classic.
