Give Your Home a Makeover this Spring

As the winter months come to a close, spring is just around the corner. It's time to think about refreshing your home and breathing new life into your living space. You'll begin with a thorough cleaning, clearing out the dust, shampooing your rugs, and scrubbing the entire place from top to bottom. It's also the ideal time to give your home a facelift. With some simple changes, you can really liven up your haven.

Shake Things Up

As you're running through your home, tidying up, consider ways that you can experiment with your furniture arrangements. Bring down that treasured piece from the attic and pack others away. Consider buying that wicker patio furniture you've been eying. Trade your furnishing from one room for another. They say that change is good. See what it can do to revitalize your home.

Change Your Color Scheme

If you're tired of looking at the same colors on your walls, give your interior a paint job. You can go with bold contrasts or choose a scheme that will complement your furnishing. Add accents, such as throws, pillows, and new curtains that will blend with the new hues on your walls.

Renovate Your Flooring

Now is a great time to give your floors an overhaul as well. You can pick up an inexpensive rug to change the entire feel of a room. If you have hardwood floors, consider a new stain. If your wood flooring is unfinished, hidden by a rug, sand it down and coat it with stain for a rich, warm atmosphere. New tile or laminate can make an attractive new addition as well.

Open Up Your Living Space

If your home is cluttered, get rid of anything that you don't need. Put items in storage. Recycle and pass on furnishings that you don't want anymore. Make sure that everything is in its place. If you tend to have lots of little items scattered everywhere, consider packing some of them away simply to give yourself more open space. You will discover that the less is better when it comes to home d├ęcor. A simple, streamlined look can really make you feel like you have more room to work with. You will also find it easier to keep your home clean when you cut back on your accents or extras.

Premier Inn Tenby - A mini review

family hotel room


Last month, just before Mr G arrived into the world we had one last mini jaunt as just the three of us and decided to have a night in Tenby in West Wales. We have been on day trips to this pretty seaside town many times and have stayed family close but never actually in Tenby as a lot of the hotels are somewhat outdated or the B&B's not that family friendly and when we are not camping it's nice to have somewhere you can drop in and know what your getting so it was nice to see a new Premier Inn has opened up as I think this popular summer destination really needed something like this - as much as we love boutique and independent hotels.

Location - right in the heart of Tenby, 1 minute away from Restaurants, cafes and the coast. It also has it's own parking attached to the hotel which is really convenient especially since we were travelling by car.

Rooms - we had a large and spacious family room which was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed including free-wifi, hair dryer, plasma TV and with the bonus of everything being new the shower was powerful and warm and the bed very comfy. We all had a good night sleep and thats really important when travelling with a young child.

Facilities - It has it's own restaurant which opens in the early evening, outside of these hours there are vending machines although like I said you only a minute away from the bustle streets filled with cafes. The reception is 24 hours and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Breakfast - When travelling without a young child we would normally go explore the local are and have breakfast out but when your travelling as a family it is often more convenient to opt for the breakfast in the hotel before heading out for an action packed day. There were lots of choice, I opted for warm porridge with berries, while Mr A had poached eggs on a breakfast muffin and John went for a full english. They also had granola's, pastries, toast, fresh fruit, yogurts, fresh juice and costa coffee. The breakfast room is also very stylish and a comfortable place to relax and start the day.





Overall we would really recommend staying here as the interior was simple but chic, they staff friendly and helpful, the rooms nice and clean as well as free-wifi. You could not ask for a better location as well as a great breakfast selection at really good prices.
