If you do decided to get marble in your home then you will need to take care of it, here are some quick tips:

  1. Prevention – some liquids could stain or eat away at your marbles surface creating dull spots. However, if you seal your marble every few months with a good sealant, use the right cleaning products, and use placemats or coasters then this should help keep it looking tip top.
  2. Cleaning – make sure you clean your marble regularly with warm soapy water and a soft cloth, afterwards ensure you dry thoroughly to prevent any absorption that could cause staining. With a marble floor avoid using a hoover and turn to a dust mop instead.
  3. Stains – If you spot a stain act quickly to try avoid full absorption into the marble. However, if the stain happened a while beforehand, try a mix of baking powder with ammonia, or hydrogen peroxide applied to the stain for up to 48 hours.
  4. Scratches – If you want to remove scratches that have occurred gently rub the area with warm water, and a soft cloth. For the deeper scratches use a very fine grain sandpaper, if neither of these options work contact a professional.

The downstairs toilet!

You should never underestimate the blessing and convenience of a downstairs toilet! You may think it’s just a toilet whats the fuss? However, your downstairs WC could be so much more!

Most people pay little attention to their downstairs toilet, after all its just a toilet, and most the time it is the smallest room in the house. However, it can be a pretty important and useful room, one obvious advantage is it means guests never have to adventure upstairs if you don’t want them to. These days most newly built houses have a downstairs toilet already, but older properties generally have to fit a toilet into their under stairs space, or utility areas.

When it comes to decor most people just give the toilet area a lick of paint and a mirror and leave it at that, yet there is no reason the toilet can’t be as lavish as the rest of your house, there are no rules to what you can do, the only limit is your imagination. Another bonus of this wonderful small space is that even with a limited budget you can make it amazing. Go for that expensive wall paper as you probably will only need  one roll, get those amazing tiles as you won’t need too many, and while you are at it, decorate that ceiling too!

Don’t worry just because it is a small space doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of space boosting tricks you can use to make better use of the limited area. You can’t make the room any bigger but you certainly can make it more efficient. Here are some ideas on how to make your downstairs toilet more amazing.

  • Don’t have a house with a downstairs toilet already in place? Then why not turn your utility/laundry room into a space for multiple uses. You could have the toilet, and your washing machine, dryer etc all in there, nicely tucked away in in-built cupboards under the hand sink.

  • Another option is to convert under the stairs! You would need to consult with a plumber in regards to the waste pipes to the area, and think about where is best to situate the WC, you don’t want people to be hitting their heads!

  • To save space, use your WC as a cloakroom too!

  • If you have the space, get freestanding storage, this will gain you that extra storage most people want, as well as be easy to remove when/if you leave.

  • Got a nice spacious downstairs toilet? Then why not add a shower! This is great for if you have guests staying.

  • Get creative, there is no reason your toilet can’t be a lavish space too!

  • Don’t just wallpaper the walls! Wallpapered ceilings are huge right now so why not try it out on your new, trendy toilet?

  • Use mirrors to give the feel of a larger space.

Finally, a few tips:

  • Make sure you install a radiator, it may be a small room but it can still get pretty chilly!
  • Ensure a lock is installed even if it is a multi use room, no one likes to get caught out.
  • Get a handy toilet roll shelf to keep yourself stocked up, nobody likes to get caught short.
  • Get some nice hand soaps and scents etc, you have a nice toilet now so show it off fully.

Micro Desking!

Many people are now working for themselves, or having to work from home these days. However working from a laptop on your knee, or hunched over a breakfast bar/dining table is not ideal. That is where a micro desk could be the perfect solution, they don’t take up too much space, and provide an area solely for you to work.

Here are some ideas on how to create your micro desk:

A cove desk!

33-cool-small-home-office-ideas-5

Got some little cove areas in your home that aren’t much use for anything else, then create a desk to work at with shelves to store your work on.

A window desk!

fin-15-corner-window-desk-5a1f09f589eacc0037ff5217

Instead of  a seat in that window pop a desk in there, not only is fairly spacious but there is plenty of light too.

Inside the wardrobe!

Want a desk that you can close away? Then why not convert a wardrobe or store cupboard.

The fold away!

Flat-murphy-wall-box-800×800

This handy little desk fixes to your wall and folds away, what a fab idea!

Along the wall!

You don’t have to take up a chunk of the room with how small laptops are these days, a simple shelf around the edge of the room works.

What to do to create a micro desk in your cupboard:

  1. Empty the cupboard fully out.
  2. Fill in any holes, sand until smooth and then paint whichever way you please.
  3. For the desk, trim an old worktop, or buy a wide shelf. Then fix into the cupboard atop of two pieces of wood fixed to the wall.
  4. Add in some shelves above to store your work books, stationary etc.
  5. Add a plant, some stylish accessories and get to work.
