Choosing the Right Flooring for your Home

Over the last few years we have done extensive work to our home – with a new bathroom, a new extension and a loft conversion in the pipeline. There are always so many decisions to make with any work on your home and one of the most important decisions is always what flooring to use. What flooring should I use?

I had been working from home for a year and found my time pulled between the house, school and work and trying to cram everything into the hours that the children were at school just wasn’t possible.

Our Bedroom Update with IKEA PAX

Using the IKEA RÅSKOG Trolley for Arts & Crafts

LP and Little Man both love to draw, paint and write. They are both so creative and they love to come home from school and make things or put their whole imagination down on paper. To help support this I wanted to create somewhere that would be home to all of their craft things – their pens, craft kits and accessories. In the end I impulse bought an IKEA RÅSKOG Trolley…
