One of the small things that can make things just right is to think about flooring. It is easy to lay high quality flooring but then not give much consideration to the finishing touches, however things like decent skirting boards really do make all the difference!
Then you also have things such as doors, which really do need to be chosen in a way that complements the rest of the room. You can even get architraves custom designed to ensure that they match perfectly.
This might seem really small and unimportant, however it really does matter! Otherwise you run the risk of having an amazing look floor, which is ruined by having gaps between the wall and the floor and this really brings down the look of the whole room, or a door that doesn't fit properly or match the rest of the room style, which makes such a difference to the whole feel of the room!
The good news is that when it comes to home decor, there are loads to choose from,so whatever you are looking for - you can be sure there will be something that suits your needs perfectly.
Finish the room with the right furniture and a beautiful rug and you'll soon have the perfect looking room with minimal effort.
What type of flooring would you go for should you have the choice?

One of the options I have looked into for my home is some sort of feature wall, because you can get stick on ones that really do look the part. These are great in my opinion because they allow you to decorate your home, but then switch it up again if you want to a later date - without too much expense or hassle.
What is really great about this is that there are so many wall designs to choose from. Want something traditional? Go for something with old white brick slips - looking for something a bit funky? Go for a sunset or a quirky design!
I love the idea of these because if I suddenly realise I have choosen the wrong one or I want to do something different, I can simply take it down and start again with a new design. Of course, I am not suggesting this is something you'd do at the drop of a hat, but with such an inexpensive cost attached you can do this much more often than you would with a room that would need to be completely repapered or painted
What design would you go for?

Sadly, I am missing out this year as the event is a huge event in Liverpool, in a shiny new venue that looks amazing! I've told many people about Curve Fest and what it means, and if you haven't been (or you have and loved it), I'd really recommend it for 2018!
When I have told people about it in the past, I've described it as a fat Clothes Show Live. As a teenager, I always loved the thought of attending Clothes Show Live (usually held at Birmingham NEC I believe) but I was worried that nothing would fit and I would have a terrible time.
The Curve Fashion Festival
There is no such worry with The Curve Fashion Festival, as it is all plus size friendly and body positive brands. There are cat walks that feature larger women, seminars given by plus size influencers and so much more!
It is hard to say what is best about Curve Fest, however I would say it's simply spending a day with friendly people, who look like you and love fashion as much as you! You'll also get to see loads of brands there, including Debenhams who are there for the 2nd year running - last year to promote their fabulous beauty range and his year to give us all a look at their lingerie collection!
This year the event is in November and if you can attend, I really would urge you to go along!

Of course, as well as worrying about being cold, winter can be pretty dangerous too! No one wants to slip on the ice, or have tyres struggling on a snowy road. Whether you're walking someone, or driving a vehicle, it really is important to make sure you take as many precautions as possible to make sure that everyone stays safe!
During winter season driving becomes a mission in its self. Let’s just not get into the feeling of getting yourself out there clearing up the snow from you to head to work or to drop your kids off early morning.
It is really important to assure safety for yourself and your passengers as the roads tend to get slippery in winters- Causing accidents.
Along with maintaining your speed, make sure that your tyres are roadworthy. Your car tyres should be fit enough to ensure safe and smoother driving conditions.
Preparing Everything As well as fashion, you need to think about other ways to be prepared for the cold weather. For example, if you have a car then you'll definitely want to take better care of it in the winter. I don't even just mean when it's snowy and you want to drive saver, I mean simply keeping your vehicle happier in colder climates.
One of the best things you can do is make sure your car service and maintenance is up to date. As well as getting a mechanic to keep an eye on your vehicle, it is a good idea to regularly check things such as oil and water. In fact, it wouldn't harm you on how to keep an eye on things such as tyre pressure too!
Never Too Much
You can never really do too many safety checks on a car, after all during winter it is going to be putting up with some pretty grueling conditions. It is far better to do many safety checks than it is to put lives a risk by driving a potentially dangerous car in snowy, icy, wintery conditions.
Get brakes checked, so you know they're going to be reliable when breaking on icy roads. Check tyres so you know they can grip the road when it's snowy, and check oil to make sure your car is in the best possible position to drive!
Check for your oils so that you don’t go through the hassle of breakdowns and stopping your car midway to check or call for help that may cause inconvenience and stress you out – hence take precautionary measures! Of course, it goes without saying that checking brakes is essential, they need to be working correctly to ensure that you can drive safely and securely!
Calling in the Experts
Realistically, not everyone is going to have the skills, time or patience to do this - so if that is the case, it's time to call in the experts. Have a look at local places that can help and for your car choose car servicing by Ossett Tyre House in Dewsbury or someone local to yourself.
