This week there are bargains galore leading up to and including Friday – thanks to us borrowing the American idea of a one off huge sale day ‘Black Friday’ – which seems to have grown to a week and even a fortnight with some brands.
It’s not the nicest invention for small brands who can’t compete with big brands on discounts and lose custom, but also leaves brands who have huge discounts with little or no profit – but it without a doubt for the consumer a day to grab a bargain. However it’s only a bargain if you actually needed it in the first place.
Electronics and appliances are the best products to take advantage of on such a day and our NICE PRICE find is this Kenwood Stand Mixer with a huge discount at Amazon
If you’re short of space or just starting out, you’ll need a small and simple food mixer that does it all. Our Prospero compact food mixer is the ideal match – just perfect for small batches and everyday family use
The Kenwood Prospero Mixer will work hard for you, perfectly kneading, whisking, and beating the ingredients you need to create fabulous breads, cakes and pastries
In between the love for white minimal and Scandinavian pops of colour, the strong trend for dark tones within the kitchen is a beautiful stylish style direction to head in.
Choosing between dark cabinets, counters, wall tiling, floor covering or all of the above creates a deep rich interior – a modern look for a home.
Bringing together a lot of dark tones (greys and blacks) is a bold move but it pays off. Although high lighting with colour or white is also a great look. Intersperse dark cabinets with white tiling or use a paler paint or flooring to soften the darkness.
For accessories, using other on-trend colours of the moment including metallics, blushes and pastels or light greys will really add to the look.
Across the high street big brands and smaller independent brands, seek out well chosen kitchenalia, ceramics, equipment and utensils to compliment the look.

Items dipped in paint are hugely on trend right now with stores offering a variety of furniture and accessories with the ‘dipped in paint’ look. Anything from stools and coffee tables to vases and glasses can look great with splashes of colour. It’s an easy way to get highlights of present colour trends into an interior – currently popular is copper, neons and simple monochrome – either black or white.
Start small with an easy project of dipped wooden spoons. All you need is spray or paint, masking tape, a brush and to strengthen to allow washing use a sealing agent like acrylic sealer, shellac or paint in enamel paint instead.
