My Obsession with Homes Under the Hammer

*Collaborative post.

 

I have an obsession with Homes Under the Hammer. It is one property show I love watching on BBC. I have been a fan of this show for many years now, Been loving it long before we became home owners. My obsession is so serious that I watch this show everyday and play catch up on BBC iPlayer when I miss it. I remember daydreaming about owning homes or at least a home to start with in the UK. It is amazing we now own our home, but building a property portfolio is still a dream. I hope to change that dream to a reality one day, and I know I can with hard work, planning and determination.

Why do I Like Homes Under the Hammer So Much

I think the show is brilliant. I love seeing deadbeat homes transform into luxurious houses. The whole auction and renovation process is very interesting. It is amazing to see how much a deadbeat house is worth and how much money and times goes into renovating it. Seeing the profit margins motivates me even more to get into the property business as soon as we can.

The fact that a house can be easily transformed with some tiles/carpets, blinds, beautiful decor, paint, lean to conservatory, French doors, and more is great. It makes me want to step up my DIY skills. I have seriously improved when it goes to DIY. Some months ago, I couldn’t even use a screwdriver properly when I had to change the batteries in the kiddies’ toys, but now I can. With things like this, it takes determination, and I am determined to be better at doing home improvements around the house.

Our plan is to paint some of the rooms in the next few months, and I am looking forward to getting my hands dirty. Most of the homeowners that appear on Homes Under the Hammer do a good portion of the home improvements themselves to save money, and I don’t blame them. In order to increase the profit margins, you have to be able to do some of the work.

Fashion and Style Police Reviews Brabantia Linn Clothes Rack

I recently updated our bedroom decor with a stunning white wardrobe to match the rest of the decor. It is the wardrobe of my dreams with more than enough space, and it makes me happy whenever I look at it. I am still in the process of redecorating our bedroom. The children’s bedroom is finally done and I love the whole look. So I have time and resources to finish up our bedroom and the rest of the house.

In the midst of our home improvements, I had the opportunity to work with the lovely people at Brabantia. They sent me the Linn Clothes Rack to review and I couldn’t wait to get it all set up.

For one, more people are owning units in skyscrapers rather than having the classic white picket fence arrangement. Because of this, being wise about the space you have is everything especially if you want to call it your home. It’s important to be wise about how you use your available space so you can move freely and still own stuff that matters to you. Because of this, a lot of space-saving furniture has been creating for the past few years to answer this need. One of these is the rising trend of owning a Murphy bed. Space saving beds are so important in homes that have limited space.

With this kind of bed, you get to think of other ways to utilize your space since you can fold your bed.

It’s always nice to have furniture that you can easily customize because you have the freedom to move it around or place it in your preferred location. You can even have the option to either design it as an individual unit or as a part of your cabinetry unit. You can also have it designed to have storage or shelving. Murphy beds are a great choice for those who need to have spaces for storage but only have a limited living area. The ability to customize Murphy beds compared to regular beds are what makes it worth it because then you don’t have to worry that your other furniture and things at home have nowhere else to be.


2. Murphy beds can complement your home’s decor

One of the things that we always consider when we are buying a new furniture is if it matches our home’s decor. Furnitures that don’t seem to complement with the rest of the stuff in your home is such a big no-no. The good thing is that Murphy beds can easily blend in with the rest of your stuff at home because it is easily customizable. You can work and collaborate with a designer who can do a custom design of your Murphy bed that can be folded beautifully into a cabinet of sort or something that can be functional throughout the day when you are not using it. You can also have it designed to utilize all available space in your home. Unlike ready-made classic beds, there are chances that to doesn’t fit perfectly well into your limited space. Worse, you cannot just move it around whenever you want to, making it frustrating to look at when you want to style your home.

3. It is as comfortable as a regular bed

Most people think that you will lose a sense of comfort if you choose a Murphy bed for your home. However, it is actually as comfortable as conventional beds. It comes with high-quality mattresses that can guarantee you a great night sleep.
