Buying a House – Part 5: Renovating

Hi Lovelies! Hope you are well.

Been a while since I’ve written about our home story – to catch you up, it’s been 6 months that we have now been staying in our home, we have the most amazing neighbours (more like parents and always looking out for us two) and settling in has been quite the journey (mind you, we are still living out of boxes!)

Now comes the dreaded renovating part – when we bought the house we knew that we would definitely need to do some work – we have essentially no kitchen and the house is completely bare save for one cupboard in the main bedroom.

Low Bed

Drawers Under Bed
Because the space is small, we need functional furniture — which is where under bed storage comes in. I like pieces that are multi-functional (like the desk we have is also a bookshelf.

Open Shelving and Hanging Space
Because I have come accustomed to having an open closet per se (in the form of rails), I love the idea of an open wardrobe. It ensures that all your clothes are always neat and tidy and also – it just looks so pretty — like a store (which means less buying!)
