Try your hand at turning furniture


Join one of the biggest interior trends of 2021: the furniture turnaround. You don’t have to be a handyman to recycle your furniture and breathe new life into your home, because the Hemway Home collection makes it easy. Chalk paint, for example, is not only for furniture, but can also be painted on walls in a single coat, due to the high number of pigments.

And Hemway Glitter Grout Additive can transform ordinary tile with a touch of shimmer; it is available in six sizes and over 50 colors. You can get three products for the price of two at hemway.com/collections until June 1, 2021 with the code 3for2.

Bring the outdoors in with purifying houseplants


A popular interior design trend from last year that shows no signs of declining is bringing the outdoors in, and plants have played a big part in it. London’s online garden center The Stem has it all online, and its collection of 150 varieties of plants and pots – with pots and accessories too – is conveniently sorted into categories, such as “kid friendly”, “pet friendly” and “low maintenance” as well as a selection of air purifying plants.

And the company’s commitment to sustainability means you can shop without worrying about your carbon footprint. The Stem delivers in electric vans, uses recycled packaging, and plants a tree for every order. Get £ 10 off the first time you buy when you spend £ 75 or more using the code THESTEM10 until May 31, 2021. Go to thestem.co.uk/plants

Build your own modular sofa in any space


Sofas are one of the most important pieces of furniture in a home. So it’s no wonder that modular sofas are gaining in popularity. Fully customizable, they can be integrated into any space and expanded to grow with your needs. Fantastically flexible, the Cloud Sundae collection from Snug includes three and two seater sofas, 1.5 ‘snugglers’ loveseat, sofa beds and ottomans, with the option of storage space in each sofa.

Each is made from high quality materials that are vegan friendly and stain resistant. The luxury soft-touch velor is available in Midnight Blue, Pine Green, Soft Teal and Warm Gray. Discover the most comfortable sofa-in-box collection on snugsofa.com.

How to choose a wardrobe according to your space and your style


Whether you’re a fashion enthusiast, a busy professional, or have a collection that you’d like to organize, having the right wardrobe can make all the difference. Built-in fitted wardrobes offer a sleek design and unmatched functionality, allowing you to get the maximum storage possible while adding unique customization details. But before buying a wardrobe, you need to consider the size, quality, materials, design, finish and budget.

This is where FCI London can help; it has been manufacturing high end cabinetry since 1985. The company can provide luxury storage with built in cabinets, showcasing beautiful interiors and fixtures, but also specializes in catering small spaces with corner cabinet designs and the option of sliding doors.

Add a Scandinavian-style standing desk to your home office


Many of us have had the experience of working from home over the past year – and could do so for quite some time to come. This means that we usually move less and sit more, which is not good for overall health, especially when it comes to our back, neck, and shoulders. FRISKA is a Scandinavian-inspired UK company that creates adjustable standing desks that offer both premium design and ease of use – and are quiet on the move.

Made and designed in Sweden with a 10 year warranty, you can choose from narrower desks if you have limited space at home, as well as different designs of desks and frames to suit your style. Use code NEWSWITCH to upgrade your desktop to the new integrated switch design. Find out more online at friskadesk.com
