What a load of Rubbish!

When many people are decorating a room they can spend so much time and care (and money...) on dressing the room to perfection and then forget to pay any attention to the finishing touches.

Take a kitchen for example, I've seen some beautiful kitchens with top of the range cupboards, worktops and appliances and then lurking in one unkempt corner of the room there's an oversized, ugly, off-white rubbish bin with the bin liner hanging out at the sides. It's such an eye-sore and it's all I can see in the room once I spot it!

I presume the reason for this is because the rubbish bin is an after-thought, after all, a bin is a necessity that has to be put somewhere, a purely functional item, right? Wrong! With just a little effort and time when choosing your bin it can change from being an eye-sore in your kitchen to actually adding something to the overall style of the room. Or at the very least not taking from it!

Here are a few of my favourites. Similar items to these are available at Argos, with prices starting at around €49.99.

Oh my god, its so true. If you insist on an ugly bin at least keep it hidden in a utility room or something!
