Everyone loves a good sale, right? Especially when it comes to homeware and furniture. Nothing beats getting a discount on something you’ve had your eye on for ages. I treat sales exactly the way money-savvy people tell you to treat them – if I wouldn’t buy it normally, I won’t buy it in the sale.
Of course, it’s great to get money off, but there’s zero-point parting with your hard-earned cash if said purchase is just going to end up on the pile of rejects under the stairs.
One store which always has a great sale is House of Fraser. Launching instore and online through to the 8th April, the House of Fraser Home Event will see discounts of up to 20 percent on all new season styles, on brands such as Biba, Joseph Joseph, Samsonite and Royal Worcester to name a few. Plus, you get an extra 10 percent off if you shop online.
With that said, I wanted to pick out the best of the best for you, covering the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and accessories. Just like in the world of fashion, these pieces are investment pieces for the home. Buying a Le Creuset casserole dish, for example, is the ultimate in adulting if you ask me. And the second you buy luxury towels to replace your grubby old ones from university is the moment you’ve blossomed into a fully-fledged grown-up.
The trick with sale shopping is to ask yourself, is it a brand you love, is it an investment, can you actually afford to buy it, and will you use it? If you’ve answered yes to those questions, then scroll down and see some of my Home Event highlights…
