Radiators, whether we like them or not, are a necessity in homes everywhere, providing heating to us in the colder months when a jumper and blanket won’t quite do. If you think that your heating doesn’t look the best, you could get your radiators replaced, or if you don’t want to spend a bomb, you could buy a set of affordable radiator covers to hide them away. Here are a few reasons why we think radiator covers are great and why you should bless your home with them!
Christmas this year is going to be slightly different. We won’t be able to have the usual big Christmas party with our entire families, but that doesn’t mean that the celebrations have to be halted.

Make it more meaningful with our selection of Christmas gifts that will be sure to put a smile on their faces.
Get ready for some mouth watering creepy cupcakes that will be sure to raise your Halloween spirits.

Autumn is the season of falling leaves, shortening days and most of all, sweet baked treats! We love a bit of amateur baking here at Jack Stonehouse, especially during autumn when comfort food is an absolute necessity. The gorgeous aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg and spiced fruits could be just what you need after a long day at work so kick those boots off, get those slippers on and get stuck into some of our favourite autumnal recipes. It doesn’t have to take a lot of effort to bake, just get your ingredients together and add them to your stand mixer as and when you need to. Ours also offer separate heads with the mixers, giving you more ways to use it than for just whisking!

Floating shelves also look fantastic in any setting, adding a sophisticated and well-styled finish to any room.
