Fiona Creed, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: ‘Valentine’s Day is the ideal time for couples to re-discover the spark that brought them together – and they can help things along by creating the right atmosphere at home.

‘They can take inspiration from our Pinterest board, which offers a tantalising glimpse of the most romantic rooms in our stunning showhomes, as well as from the photos that our #twlovenest competition entrants post on Twitter and Instagram.

‘Then it’s time to get creative to ensure that their home becomes the love nest they’ve always dreamed of!’

Taylor Wimpey has some helpful tips to create the perfect love nest in time for Valentine’s Day:

Turn the lights down low – dimmer switches or carefully-placed lamps are ideal for creating the right mood for love

Turn up the heat – make sure it’s warm enough to peel off the layers with energy-efficient insulation and heating

Remember music is the food of love – play some tracks that remind you of special times

A picture says a thousand words – update your photo frames with happy snaps of you together

And while this might not sound so romantic, make sure you tidy up! Clear the sofa of the kids’ toys so you can snuggle up to watch a romantic movie and move the clutter off the dining table so you can set it for a candlelit dinner for two.

Taylor Wimpey’s brand new homes offer a host of seductive features, including luxurious en-suite master bedrooms, energy-efficient central heating and double-glazing to keep out cold draughts, and beautiful fitted kitchens which are ideal for cooking the perfect romantic meal!
