The Best Things About Staying at home

We understand that the current situation is a tricky one! When you may be so used to having a super busy week, you may feel a little lost with the extra time on your hands. If you have done all your household chores, exercise and shopping errands, you may be twiddling your thumbs. Here at The Yorkshire Tile Company we’ve rounded up some of our favourite ways to make the most of our time at home so grab a cuppa, have a read through and hopefully you’ll feel more optimistic about your days at home.

  1. You have time for a spring clean

There’s never been a better time to up your spring-cleaning game! While we love the sunshine, we don’t love how it highlights all those areas of your home that need a spruce up. We suggest making a to do list of all the areas you want to tackle and ticking off one per week. If you’re starting in the kitchen think about your cupboards and drawers, are they clean? Are all your store cupboard essentials in date? Are your hoarding Tupperware and trays you never use? Really think about your space and we promise you you’ll reap the benefits afterward. Tidy house, tidy mind.


  1. You can rearrange your bedroom.

Sleep is a precious time for all of us, and sleeping in a well-cleaned and organised bedroom can make all the difference. Why not have a think about what your ideal bedroom looks like and make a start by improving the layout of your bedroom. It may keep you busy and give you a better night's sleep- win, win?

      3. You can spend time in your garden

Now that spring is here and most of us will be spending more time at home, why not use your garden (if you’re lucky enough to have one) to its fullest potential. Dust off your garden table and chair sets, put on some music (check our our Spotify playlist here and pour yourself a drink, it may help to escape any worries you may have…even temporarily!

     4. You can start a creative blog

Have you ever fancied trying your hand at blogging? Or have you started a blog and never kept it up? Now may be the time to get pen to paper or should we say, fingers to keyboard. Think of your favourite hobbies, it may be DIY, fashion, cooking or interior design. There are a number of great, free platforms to help you make a start. Our favourites? WordPress, Simplesite or Joomla.


    5. You can catch up ` some old friends

You may have friends that you have lost touch with recently due to a busy work schedule, family commitments or a change in where you live. If you have kept meaning to rekindle your long-lost friendships and check on your friends, now may be the perfect time. Technology is our best friend when staying at home, and it will help to track down any old friends. Why not have a search on Facebook for your old school friend? Or download a free app such a Skype, JusTalk or Google Duo and reconnect with friends.
