It’s not often you get asked to hang out with a TV celebrity for an afternoon while sipping prosseco and catching up with some lovely blogger buddies, but on Monday I was invited to launch of the innovative Lifestyle Wall from British Gypsum’s Room Made For You and prepared myself for an exciting day ‘in the office’.
I really love interior design and the way you can transform your living space, so I was thrilled to attend a blogging event at the Good Housekeeping Institute to hear about a product that will revolutionise the home. People might think it’s hard to get excited about plasterboard but the new Lifestyle Wall allows you to create a flexible space that grows with your tastes and trends, and when George Clarke from Channel 4 get’s behind a product you know it's going to be good.
We all know how putting up shelves, mirrors and all those heavy mounted purchases can be a pain, what with the 'wall knock test' to see if it can take the strain, then the drill and RAW plugs, the mess and let’s face it, if you’re no good with a spirit level then you may as well not bother. The Lifestyle Wall is changing all that, raising the standard of homes across the UK and Europe this new plasterboard with its reinforced core is five times stronger than standard plasterboard allowing you to screw straight into the wall with no fuss, no mess, anywhere in your home. Large mirror? TV? kitchen shelves? Yep all you need is a couple of screws and a screwdriver and your set to go.
As we sat and listened to George explain how this could change the way we use our homes, allowing us to use our space in a flexible way and how it could be used in new builds, renovation projects and even potentially in the rental market, I thought how this would change my space at home.
Being in a flat with little storage and having a whole lot of love for interiors on Pinterest, I’m always fascinated how people make the most of their space; cue me painting walls white, using modern designed mirrors to reflect light, picture galleries to personalise our rented home with prints on rotation, storage baskets to hold the clutter, I could go on. Having a wall that can hold weight and be made new with a simple filler if I change my mind sounds like a dream. I love interiors which use wall mounted objects to create visually impacting spaces while saving footprint creating the illusion of space.
Imagine being able to put up shelving with ease and create a flexible storage solutions for your bedroom. By fixing shelves high on your walls allows you freedom to move things off the floor and keep the clutter at bay.
I love how they’ve mounted a bike to remove a bulky awkward object from the floor, petfect when ou have limited outdoor space or living in a small flat. Plus if the bike is a cool colour or quirky design then it can create quite a feature piece and how simple and clean does this wall mounted table look?
I’d love to hear how you would use this in your home? Could you see this changing how you decorate?
