We give our top three tips on how to update your home while the youngsters are pre-occupied with catching up on learning and their school buddies.

As children are getting ready to head back to school and while this year has been somewhat unconventional, one thing that many households will have on top of their list will be to update, clear out and get ready for the winter months.

We give our top three tips on how to update your home while the youngsters are pre-occupied with catching up on learning and their school buddies.

Try Before you Buy

Sounds really obvious, but if you are not 100% sure on the style you are looking for then trying out samples in your own home is a lot easier (and helps prevent expensive mistakes). This is also a great way of getting the family on board when it comes to choosing a look for communal spaces and you will be amazed by how varying light levels in a home can effect the look of paints, floors and materials.

Teachers Pet

Well perhaps not teachers pet but if you do have a furry family member then look at practical elements such as durability and maintenance. We may have had a glorious, sunny and dry summer, but with the change to Autumn and Winter months around the corner, your home will need to muddy paw and dirty footstep ready.

Top of the Class for Vinyl

There is nothing more satisfying than some admiring glances when it comes to your choice of flooring. Whereas solid woods, tiles and tumbled marble may not be within the reach of most budgets, choosing a realistic vinyl floor from any of the Leoline ranges is a great way to add the feel and looks without breaking the piggy bank. So it’s never been easier to be top of the class AND having some money to spend on some eye-catching accessories.
