There’s a social media hashtag #IHaveThisLittleThingWithFloors which has me drooling over gorgeous floor designs that seem a far cry from those in my villa. Well, mamas, I’ve found the most incredible range of vinyl mats and tiles for floors and tables – and frankly for anywhere that you can stick them (am thinking as a splashback in the kitchen?!) that will create that design magic without the need for re-tiling! Created by clay design (find them on instagram @clay.design), there’s a huge variety of designs and sizes to transform any space. Those ugly old villa floors? Stick these beauties over them and you’ll have something a little more Moroccan chic – amazing! Easy to apply, this is maximum impact for minimum effort (and prices are pretty reasonable too). Now which ones to choose?….
Ugh those ugly kitchen cabinets are soooo depressing when you’re making your morning cuppa, right mamas?! Well here’s some good news, you can give them a major makeover with the help of British owned company Totally Wrapped whose simple process involves wrapping vinyl in a color, texture or wood grain of your choice over your existing cabinets or fitted wardrobes. Whether it’s to banish that dark wood you just can’t stand or give your kitchen or bathroom a modern finish, this is the way to do it! And if your landlord wants you to return the property to its original state – the process is totally easy to reverse too (hooray to getting our deposits back!). Give them a buzz for a quote, mamas!
