Downsize your home for a low-maintenance lifestyle

Trade down to a smaller property and reap the rewards

Downsizing can be very liberating. You’ll be able to get rid of clutter and have a fresh start in a home that’s far more manageable. You may be able to release enough equity to remain debt and mortgage-free, with extra funds for your retirement and perhaps to help children through university or on to the housing ladder. According to Prudential’s latest downsizing index, 41% of over-55s plan to sell their current home, with three quarters of these hoping to downsize.

With its rugged coastline, stunning views and generally good weather, Cornwall is the UK’s most popular retirement destination

About Your Home Magazine

Isn’t it funny, no matter how many years ago you left school, September always comes with an air of new beginnings and fresh starts. Whether it’s the kids going back to school, the older ones leaving home and heading off to Uni, or just us grown-ups fancying a new lunchbox for work or a fresh new look for our home. So if you’ve got the itch to make a few changes around your home, we’ve made sure there’s plenty to inspire you in this issue. On page 36 we take a look at the hottest trends on the high street for the coming season. From cosy woodland touches, glamorous metallics mixed with sultry dark tones, chic and simple Scandi-inspired pieces or flamboyant florals, we’re sure you’ll find something you’ll want to add to your home to freshen it up for the months ahead. And, if your kitchen or bathroom floor needs a bit of an update, then check out our guide to the latest flooring designs that are both pretty and practical (p.48). Don’t forget to check out our gorgeous bathroom makeovers too for even more great ideas to steal (p.24). Meanwhile, if your kids have flown the nest, and you’re considering downsizing, then do read our essential guide on page 106 to see if it’s right for you. Even if you’re not planning any major decorating projects this month, you can still get in the ‘back to school’ spirit, with our brilliant recipe ideas (p.100). Go on treat yourself to a new lunchbox and spoil yourself with our tasty lunchbox treats!
