We think it’s safe to say that many of us have spent more time at home than we ever thought possible in the last year and a half. Because of this, we’ve had more time to think about redecorating or restyling our living spaces.

Here at Frank’s, we would love to let you in on a secret… You don’t actually have to spend a lot to get what you want! We’d like to introduce our new monthly blog feature, “Get the look for less”. Every month, we’ll be sharing with you some living space inspiration and telling you exactly how to achieve the look but for less £££! What’s not to love about that?

Greys and neutrals are in, and we can guarantee that they’re not going anywhere any time soon! Silver, grey and white tones combined instantly give a luxe feel to any room. It’s a modern look, and we’re certainly here for it.

We’ve taken some inspiration from the beautiful aesthetic of this Instagram-worthy bedroom; wood panelling is a salvaged 70’s trend that has been re-spruced for a modern look. Wood panelling adds texture and is a nice change instead of wallpaper, colour blocking walls, or a simple lick of paint. You can find an endless selection of wood panelling at Home Base, or why not jump on eBay to see what they’ve got?

Of course, the plush grey carpet you can see is our very own Frank’s carpet. Soft to stand on and lovely to look at, we offer a fantastic selection of grey and silver-toned carpets. Pop into your local Frank’s because we’d love to help you find what you’re looking for!

White furniture with grey and silver accents works a treat! IKEA have their popular Hemnes range available, which is not only well-priced but also of great quality. Plus, if you’re prone to accidental spillages and stains, you can add glass tops to protect your bedside tables, dressing tables, and chests of drawers to help really make your stuff last.

A big, bold mirror makes a statement in any room but obviously serves a purpose as well. The Range is your go-to for regal-looking mirrors like this one at a reasonable price.

So, beds are expensive and especially ones like this! However, Dunelm offers a range of well-priced beds with an almost identical look to this one. Alternatively, Wayfair and The Range both have several options to choose from.

No room is complete without decorative pieces and small accents because we feel this is what really brings a room together. Take a trip to B&M, and you’ll soon discover cushions of all different textures and shapes to recreate this look, as well as lamps, vases, and artificial flowers. TK Maxx is another go-to place if you’d like to pick up something bespoke for your bedroom that you know not many others will have. 

What are you waiting for? We can’t wait to see you! Get yourself down to Frank’s today, and let’s get a start on your living space transformation.
