We have been talking about updating our home décor in our lounge for the last few months, it’s become tired and a little dated and well in need of a fresh new look. I love taking a look at the new interior trends and I’m a sucker for home interior magazines so when we were invited over to Redditch to check out the new Dunelm store that opened earlier this month, I bundled the family in the car and drove over to check it out.
The store was easy to find and has a large free-to-park car park right outside. Inside the store is really well laid out and felt really spacious.
Much to my husband’s delight, I had a small list of things I wanted to check out in store ahead of our lounge redecoration in the next couple of months. On my list was coffee tables, floor lamps and ceiling lights, wooden blinds and decorative frames so my first port of call in store was the furniture. There’s quite a range of items available to take away on the day and others are available for home delivery. Unfortunately the sideboard we fell in love with wasn’t available in store so we had to go home empty handed.
There’s a great range of interiors; furniture, curtains and blinds, rugs, lighting as well as bedding, electricals, utility and bathroom accessories. At the front of the store there is a couple of mock up rooms which show you a range of products available in store and how they would look all together. We really liked the look of a couple of pieces; the geometric curtains and the floor lamp were our particular favourites although my husband reminded me we didn’t come over to look at curtains, he’s such a spoil sport!
After looking round the store and picking up lots of ideas for our lounge redecoration, we had a quick pit stop in the café on the second floor where you can buy hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, cakes and other refreshments. We bought 2 hot drinks, 2 sandwiches and a kids lunch pack for just under £10 which we thought was rather reasonable.
The new Dunelm Redditch store is a really nice store to look around. There’s plenty to look at and there’s lots of inspiration for home redecoration projects. I’ve come home with plenty of ideas, a wish list and a desire to get my lounge redecorated before Christmas. Thanks Dunelm!
The new Dunelm store is now open at Grove Street, Redditch.
