My Perfect Dream Home Improvements

March 18, 2019 No Comments

There is many a time when I like to think about what my perfect dream home improvements would be. I guess my taste is actually quite minimal; with lots of open spaces and pristine white walls. In general, the less clutter the better though.

Light is also a big factor as I do like a lot of light in a room too. It helps to keep my mood up, which is good for mental health. I also find I’m more focused in a room that has a lot of natural light coming into it.

Colour can be really good if used well but I try and avoid any bold colours. They can work well as a focal point in a room though. Years ago I would always choose quite striking colours. Now though I much prefer light, natural colours.

Office Space


One of my dream home improvements would be to create a really nice office space. It’s not really a practical idea for me being bedridden BUT it doesn’t stop me dreaming and coming up with ideas!

Office space definitely requires a lot of natural light, at least for me. So I definitely want some really contemporary aluminium windows to maximise the light. Also, the windows would keep drafts out during the colder months. I definitely wouldn’t want to be working in a draft all day!

Having the windows done would definitely be an investment for years to come too. Plus, as much as I want the interior of my house to look great, I also want the exterior to look good too.

The desk would have to be a minimal design too.  Brightened up by adding some colour with a nice green plant – one that I stand less chance of killing lol

Conservatory


Another improvement I’d like to make would be to add a conservatory to the back of the house. It would just add so much more space. The house gets the sun in the morning whilst it’s still cool. By afternoon the sun has gone over, so it’s shady out the back by the time the sun is at it’s hottest. It’s kind of perfect for me as I’m not a sun lover. I do love the idea of more space though. Somewhere that you can just curl up on a comfy chair or sofa with a good book, whilst having a view of the garden.

Bathroom


The bathroom is high up on my list for improvements. I have a wet room at the moment. Whilst practical it really needs to be a much bigger space than it is now. The room at the moment is TINY. Even taking out the bath to accommodate the shower didn’t give any extra space. So fitting a bath again, as well as a walk in shower would be really fantastic. I can’t take a bath but I really hate that the rest of my family had to forego their bath so I could have a wet room. So being able to have a bath in the bathroom again would be so good.

There are lots of other things that I would love to improve too but those are the main ones. Any other changes would be small aesthetic ones.  You know all the little finishing touches that bring a room together.  I always quite enjoy browsing through Pinterest for inspiration and ideas. There are so many gorgeous images to look at. Putting together Pinterest boards is a really great way to save any images that give you ideas or inspiration for your own home improvements.

Have you got any dream home improvements you would love to make or have you already made some?

  • Finally got round to trying these @cosrx pimple patches. ⠀ ⠀ I don't get too many spots, maybe the odd hormonal one every now and then. However, I do have some whiteheads that are under the skin - you can't see them till you pull the skin tighter but I know they are there as I can feel them under the skin.⠀ ⠀ I had tried several times to extract them but I didn't want to damage my skin and they were proving very stubborn.⠀ ⠀ So, I used a sterilised needle, to pierce a small hole in them, making sure to go just deep enough to hit the whitehead. ⠀ ⠀ Whacked on one of these pimple patches & voila! Over the next 24-48hrs they pulled out all the contents and the whiteheads were gone. ⠀ ⠀ It's much less trauma to the skin to use these patches rather than squeezing and picking and running the risk of scarring or PIH.⠀ ⠀ If you've not tried these, then I really recommend giving them a try. I am pretty sure you won't be disappointed. ⠀ ⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #theinstagramlab #howyouglow #abcommunity #kbeauty #koreanskincare #rasianbeauty #koreanbeauty #abblogger #kskincare #abskincare #asianskincare #kbeautyblogger #asianbeauty #skincareaddict #instaskincare #skincarejunkie #koreancosmetics #skincareproducts #skincarecommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #thatsdarling #cosrx #petitejoys #theeverygirl #nothingisordinary #pimplepatches #화장품그램 #ABMhappylife #화장품추천 #스킨케어⠀

  • So when I purchased the Honey Potion from @Beautylish about 3 months ago, I also purchased these bad boys from @goodmolecules too! 😀⠀ ⠀ I haven't cracked them open yet though as I already have a few serums/oils in rotation at the moment. So, I don't want to waste products by opening these yet.⠀ ⠀ This is the Super Seven set & cost me $56!!! For seven products - can you believe that!? 😲⠀ ⠀ These are the seven products you get:⠀ ⠀ 💠Hyaluronic Acid Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠Niacinamide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠Overnight Exfoliating Treatment Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠 Squalane Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀ 💠 Super Peptide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠 Ultra-Hydrating Facial Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀ 💠 Wake Up Eye Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ ⠀ I'm really looking forward to using them - trust me it's killing me not to open them already!⠀ ⠀ Since I purchased these they have actually brought out four more products, which I will aim to purchase at some point in the future. Well, depending on how I get on with these, that is. ⠀ ⠀ Have you tried anything from @GoodMolecules yet?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ . ⠀ #instaskincare #skincarecommunity #skincareroutine #skincarebloggers #goodmolecules #beautylish ⠀ #skincarejunkies #skincareblogger #budgetbeauty #budget skincare #affordableskincare #theinstagramlab #livecolorfully #flashesofdelight⠀#skincareobsessed ⠀ #skincareaddict #glowyskin #clearskin #dryskin #discoverunder20k #howyouglow #skincarelover #iloveskincare #365inskincare #palmbffs #facialserum #facialoil
  • Happy Friday everyone!! ⠀ ⠀ I know a lot of people have to have their coffee first thing before they get going for the day. ⠀ ⠀ Me? Well, this is exactly how I like my coffee in the morning- in my face scrub! 😛⠀ ⠀ Truly love this @upcirclebeauty Face Scrub. (Citrus Blend) ⠀ ⠀ Smells amazing, leaves my face clean, soft, moisturised and gently exfoliated - not tight and dry like some products can. 😍⠀ ⠀ Such a great way to recycle the coffee grounds too. 😀⠀ ⠀ What's your favourite exfoliator to use? ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #coffeescrub #veganfacescrub #scrub #petitejoys #theeverygirl #theinstagramlab #instaskincare ⠀ #organicskincare #cleanbeauty #upcircle #upcirclebeauty #repurposed #repurpose #upcycle #upcycled #circularskincare #circulareconomy #coffeeskincare #caffeinatedskincare #sustainablecosmetics #coffeewaste #coffeerecycling #cleanskincare #veganskincare #greenskincare #skincarecommunity #plantbasedbeauty #plantbasedskincare #skincareroutines #skincarebloggers
  • I'll admit I am a sucker for a good face mask. Even more so if it's a honey one. 🍯 😍⠀ ⠀ This @farmacybeauty Honey Potion had been on my wishlist since I first came across it on Instagram ages ago. All I can say is it did not disappoint. Actually it did, in fact, exceed my expectations! ⠀ ⠀ I love watching the honey gooey texture change from a golden hue to creamy white when you start to massage it into your skin as it gets warm. ⠀ ⠀ After 10-15 mins it's ready to rinse off. Personally, I prefer to gently remove with a damp cloth, then pat dry.⠀ ⠀ My face always feels so very soft afterwards. It's suitable for all skin types but especially those that are dry, dehydrated and dull, which is pretty much my skin all over. I do feel like my skin looks more radiant as well as feeling nice and hydrated after using Honey Potion. ⠀ ⠀ I'd like to also mention the packaging, which is just beautiful - and I adore that the spatula/lid is magnetic too! 😊⠀ ⠀ This was a bit of a luxe purchase for me as I ordered it from Beautylish, along with some other skincare goodies that I wanted to try. I loved that I could split the total into 3 payments with them too. 🙂⠀ ⠀ Have you tried Honey Potion or anything else from @farmacybeauty?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #honeypotion #farmacybeauty #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarecommunity #skincarejunkie #skincareproducts #skincareobsessed #skincarenatural #skincareluxury #facemask #facemasks #farmacy #propolis #royaljelly #honey
