Home and Garden Tips for Autumn/Winter

Well, the weather has definitely turned, hasn't it. No sooner did it feel like we were into a bit of an Indian Summer in September, October was upon us and so was the colder weather.

It has felt like such a strange year again with many of us still working from home and so the ‘heated’ discussion starts as to when we should turn the heating on. Maybe it is time to thank about changing your fireplace?

We know many of you have been redecorating over the summer and quite often the fireplace is an afterthought as those hot summer months can often push the thoughts of a fireplace into the back of the mind. 

Fires and fireplaces can make or break a room as they can be a centrepiece as well as that reassuring heat generator. We have a range of fires in stock that will add so much to any living room, ranging from mounted electric fireplaces to stove heaters, fireplace heaters to fake firewood and flame effect units.

At Living and Home, we pride ourselves on a wide range of high quality, contemporary and classic ranges that really make a home for living in.

So what about the garden? Have you forgotten about it already? Well maybe you shouldn’t. According to the Royal Horticultural Society ( rhs.org.uk/advice/in-month/october) there are still loads of little tasks you should consider as you prepare for winter such as laying turf, pruning climbing roses and you could even be planting some spring cabbages. Once all these tasks are finished, why not add a bit more decoration (and heat) with one of our range of firepits or bowls, perfect to keep you warm when you are watching the fireworks or just looking at the clear night sky.


Coming indoors now where it is much warmer, according to the website Safewise ( https://www.safewise.com/blog/october-safety-and-maintenance-checklist/), October is the perfect time for some jobs around the house. Although US based, their tips on clearing out junk drawers and cupboards, checking smoke detectors and deep cleaning your bathroom, are just as valid for everyone. Why not get a bit more organised and use one of our kitchen carts or trolleys to make sure that you won’t need to be having to clear things out again this time next year!
