CASH IN THE ATTIC

If put on the spot, could you recall everything hoarded in your loft? Nope, us neither! Yet, according to EssexRooms.com, among the spiders and Christmas decs, the average UK home has an estimated £1,992 worth of goods stashed away just gathering dust. If you think of that in terms of a new bathroom or kitchen, that’s serious cash. So next weekend, take some time to search under the eaves, blitz the basement and raid the garage to see what treasures might be lurking. Then, once you’ve cleared some clutter, log on to storemates.co.uk and earn some extra pennies by renting out your storage space.

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.
