    First off, who knew IKEA did washing machines? This TVÄTTAD washing machine is currently reduced from £479 to £299.

    It’s been praised by customers for being extra quiet, so if yours has spun its last spin, it could be the way to go. In the reviews section, one IKEA fan even says it’s got the ‘best spin I have ever had.’

    Now for a slight gear change – next we have this sleek glass door cabinet in pine, £60, down from £150. It would work brilliantly as a stylish living room storage idea that won’t feel bulky thanks to its transparent surfaces.

    We’re thinking succulents, books (for the lower shelf) and decorative pieces picked up on our travels. The cabinet isn’t currently available online, but can still be picked up in stores.

    You truly can never have too many baskets. Be it hallways storage ideas or a place to collect the sea of plastic toys in the living room at the end of the day.

    So, you may as well opt for a pretty one like the LUSTIGKURRE basket, which now has £8 off.

    This flatwoven rug blends two neutral tones. We love the design and think it will add a touch of warmth to a pared-back scheme.
