As the first hints of spring cast natural daylight into our homes, many of us have the urge to focus in on our space and start to spruce up our homes with a spot of DIY.
And whether you're looking to add a new style to your walls with wallpaper or a fresh coat of paint - or by installing new carpet, laminate or tiles to give your floors a new impetus - making the most of your walls and floors is the first step to a happy home.
It's true what they say: first impressions really do count – especially when you walk into a room says Lee Tiffin, DIY Buying Controller at Leekes.
And whether it's subconscious or not, stylish walls and floors can immediately create a relaxing atmosphere, putting you at ease. Equally, rooms that have been poorly thought out can have the opposite effect, and are uncomfortable to live in.
Here at Leekes we like to provide thousands of home decor options to ensure that never happens. Whether you're looking for new flooring or wall coverings to add class to a room, we've a variety of different styles and designs to guarantee that your home is on trend.
When decorating your home, you need to be sure that what you choose has the quality – as well as the style – to stand the test of time. This is why we stock the biggest decorating brands: wallpaper from Belgravia, Graham & Brown and Super Fresco; paint from Farrow & Ball, Crown and Dulux; tiles from Vives and Saloni and carpets from Brintons, Ulster and Victoria carpets.
In-store, we have 4 different paint mixing machines that allow you match the exact tone for a perfectly co-ordinated finish – that's over 27,000 colour options.
Of course, it's vital to visualise what your home will look like once you've finished decorating. You can do this using our iStudio, which is an interactive in-store feature that displays and prints images of our special order wallpaper selections in a realistic home setting – perfect for understanding how your home will look. It even tells you how many rolls you'll need!
Plus, to get the most from new walls and floors, it's well worth making the most of our Interior Design Studio, where you'll enjoy an expert opinion on your next decorating venture. If you're short on inspiration, they'll advise you on the latest trends – but they're well aware that home décor is all about the personal touch, and will tailor their advice to suit you.
