Renew your home ready for autumn

Some simple style tips for seasonal entertaining

Create a cosier living room for autumn:

As the nights draw in and the seasonal events loom on the family calendar, now is the perfect time to refresh your home furnishing for less than you would think.

It’s the time of year where we all start to move indoors more, turn up the heat and have cosy nights on the sofa. Around this time we also start to notice what needs updating, especially if it’s the sofa. A simple way to do this is to invest in sofa covers that either replace your existing loose covers or fit over your upholstery. These sofa covers are completely made to measure and are a great alternative to buying new furniture, meaning you can totally refresh your living room while still keeping the furniture you have grown to love.

Plumbs have over 50 years’ experience in made-to-measure fitted covers and have over 800 fabrics to choose from, including plains, checks, stripes and florals. They offer a professional in-home service where their Home Consultant will visit you in your home at a suitable time and provide free quotation and style advice. It’s the ideal way to shop when it’s cold outside!

Quick style update with new scatter cushions and curtains:


Accessories are a quick and effective way to refresh to your home. Scatter cushions can update the look and feel of a room without having a complete costly revamp, and can be changed to suit the new seasons easily. Floor-length and fully lined curtains can also be used to create a luxurious look. These will not only keep the winter drafts at bay, but will also give your windows a style update!

Add style to your dining area:

During the busy festive months we tend to have more guests round so this is the perfect time to give your dining furniture a new look! A quick way to do this is to add new chair covers and a matching table runner. You would be surprised how much this can change the look and style of a dining space in the home, as well as being practical. Plumbs offer made-to-measure dining chair covers in a range of fabrics which can be tailored to suit your home style and taste.


Be stylish and practical with machine washable fabrics:

If you decide to update your living space for the future months, you’ll want to preserve your new stylish look for as long as possible. Plumbs have a range of fabrics that are machine washable; meaning your new covers or curtains can be removed and put through the washing machine which will help you to relax about visitors or the grandchildren!
