Inspiring Interiors – A Thrifty Home

Reclaimed home

If you have been following here for a while, you’ll no doubt have gathered that I love a bit of upcycling and any home improvements that can be completed on a budget.  So when Oak Furniture UK invited me to write a post for their blog about Inspiring Interiors, a house I had seen featured on recently sprang to mind.

The three-bedroomed Victorian house is packed with characterful features such as restored floorboards and recycled fruit crates made into kitchen cabinets!  It is a great example of how good reclaimed and salvaged materials can look.  Timeless and rustic, the house has bags of charm and personality and probably cost a fraction of normal renovation costs.


I love to see such creatitvity in a home and find it really inspiring.  You can catch my full article about creating a thrifty home on the Oak Furniture UK blog here, meanwhile here are some more lovely images of the house:
