The best January deals to update your home
Our homes are working harder than ever. If your interiors have been put through their paces, refresh them with our favourite homewear savings
Our homes have never been under so much pressure to multitask. We’ve placed so many demands on them and they’ve effortlessly morphed from office to classroom, bakery to gym, cocktail bar to spa. After months of testing them to the limit, we’ve learned how we might need to tweak our homes to make them more versatile and comfortable. After all, there’s nowhere more important. And post-Christmas is the ideal time to treat yourself to a few well-chosen finds that will breathe new life into rooms that might be feeling a little tired. From kitchen essentials to practical storage and investment pieces you’ll love for years.
Find the decorative finishing touches...
Sales are a great time to add those finishing touches; the things that will really make a room sing. Shop for statement vases or picture frames to cluster on a side table, mirrors to fill that empty spot in the hallway and bold cushions to pep up an armchair. Look for complementary pieces across different categories – you might find a rug to match your new cushion, or a sculptural lamp that echoes that piece of artwork you’ve already added to your basket.
Invest in a good night’s sleep
Plush, cosy bedding and high-quality mattresses are ideal buys at this time of year – it makes sense to invest in bedding when we spend around a third of our lives asleep. From soft feather pillows to light-as-air duvets and mattresses made in the UK, our Special Buys are the same high quality as the main ranges and they’re fantastic value with up to 20% off.
Make dinner and drinks at home feel a little more special
Now’s the perfect time to replace those odd wine glasses with a matching set and replenish the plate cupboard. Again, look out for Special Buys, which are great for boosting your basic tablescaping kit. Has your new Saturday-night dine-in routine meant you now need more serveware or pasta bowls? What about glassware – do you have the perfect lowball for your new favourite cocktail? Make dinner at home feel more special without spending a fortune.
Think big and bag a furniture bargain
Make the most of big savings on bigger pieces of furniture that will perk-up your home when you’re sick of the sight of your old armchair or shabby bedframe. Not sure where to start? Refer back to your Pinterest boards or saved Instagram posts to make sure the pieces you have your eye on will work with the aesthetic you’re going for. If your home is looking tip-top but you could use some practical upgrades, look at electrical sales buys that can make your life easier. There are also some bargains to be had on white goods, such as washing machines.
Treat your kitchen to the cookware brands you love
If you’ve always wanted a Le Creuset casserole dish or quality pans that will last, now’s the time to be smart with with your shopping and look for those cookware and kitchen brands that have always been on your to-buy-one-day list. Electricals are great investments – just don’t compromise on your must-have programmes and accessories. You might even bag a better feature-rich model for the same price as a basic one pre-discount. Look out for some complimentary accessories included in special offer prices too.
