Make your own everyday essentials

Simple and sweet, our easy-to-make necessities will turn your home into a haven of handcrafted happiness

Ever thought about getting your hands dirty in the name of homemade, but been put off by long lists of equipment requirements and costly ingredients? You’ll be relieved to hear it’s not all one-use gadgets and pricey parts. In fact, some of the best handmade bits can be created using items easily located in a supermarket. Plus, they’re often cheaper than the readymade products, too. Take vinegar for example – a 568ml bottle of distilled white vinegar costs as little as 39p at Tesco. And just think, from kitchens to bathrooms, clothes to coffee cups, it can clean almost anything, and for a fraction of the price, too. Inspired? Browse our fave homemade hacks.

About Homestyle

Transforming your home on a budget? You’ve come to the right place. Begin your bargain hunt with a stop-off on page 6, where you’ll find the best décor buys the high street has to offer – starting from just £2. Next, get your fix of design inspiration with our four fabulous real homes; Rebecca Hadley’s stairs (p.16) and Janice Issit’s bathtub (p. 46) are feats of creative magic. Steph and Abbi on the HomeStyle team have completely demystified the dark arts of DIY on page 61, from tool box starter kits and tiling masterclasses to solving your worst decorating disasters. For those DIY-ing to add value to your home, flip to page 80, where we’ve brought a whole new meaning to packing on the pounds – you’ll be totally amazed by how easily (and cheaply) you can send your asking price through the roof. Elsewhere, cook up a storm with frozen produce (p. 72), read our ultimate guide to wooden flooring (p. 96) and explore the many different ways you can upcycle and embellish junk shop finds with Juliet and Amanda on page 83. And lastly, our super stylist Pippa is back with three fun room ideas with print and pattern (p. 90) to give our schemes a whole new spin. Enjoy.
