Save a Fortune On Fine Furnishings

For a total revamp on your bedroom, kitchen or every room in your home, its important to save on the big things as well as the little things. For example, at Dunelm you can find furniture and smaller furnishings for your home and garden, including beds, sofas, cushions, lighting, dinnerware and more. With over 50,000 products to choose from, you can decorate your home whether you have a small home or room, or a large area to cover. Using our promo codes for Dunelm you can get offers such as 50% off in the sale, 20% off large furniture and 3 for 2 on all cushions.

Save on Delivery: When shopping online, delivery costs are always an important factor; especially when ordering large items such as furniture. Most furniture retailers including Dunelm offer free delivery on orders over a certain amount (£50 for Dunelm) so getting more home furnishings all in one place is a great money saving idea. You can also look out for retailers who offer to take away old furniture, so you don’t have the added costs of disposing of beds, mattresses or old sofas.



Be Mindful of the Size of Your Home

One of the key things to remember when decorating your home is to be aware of the size and layout of the area you are decorating; to ensure you compliment these aspects. Depending on the size of your home, there are a variety of home décor tips such as:

Large Rooms: In larger rooms, having designated spaces and dividing the room in some way is a great idea. Especially if you are decorating a living room, bedroom or kitchen where you can use the space in an innovative way. For example, in a bedroom, having a designated writing zone, a sleep zone and an entertainment zone mean that you can organise your belongings and are less likely to be distracted if you need to get work done.

Small Rooms: When decorating a smaller room, lighting and colour is one of the most important aspects. Lighter colours can help a small room feel much lighter and airier, with central lighting making the room look larger. Adding mirrors and having subtle wall décor can also help brighten up a smaller room and make it feel more open, with multifunctional furniture providing an excellent space saving opportunity.
