About Your Home Magazine

Autumn is upon us once again and the nights are drawing in, so in this issue we’ve put together lots of great ideas to make your home super warm and cosy for the months ahead. On page 40 we’ve got some snuggly suggestions that will turn your bedroom into the perfect haven to hibernate in on those cold winter nights to come. Meanwhile, on page 36, we’ve scoured the high street for the best hardworking furniture that will help you make the most of the space in any room of your house. Few of us are happy with how much room we have in our homes, so these smart storage solutions will really make a difference. And don’t forget to look at our fantastic makeovers this month (p.24) for some inspiring ways to make your living room look gorgeous on a budget. If you’re hoping to cut back on your energy bills over the coming months, then make sure you check out our round-up of the best eco buys for your kitchen on page 48, while in our home improvement section (p.106) we take a closer look at which eco-friendly updates will really help you cut your carbon footprint as well as your fuel bills. If, like me, autumn leaves you longing for some comfort food when you come home from work, then take a peek at our wonderful warming recipe ideas on page 100. The mushroom, spinach, kale and sweet potato pie is scrumptious – and good for you too! What’s not to love? See you next issue.
