With Halloween not far away, many of us will be looking to get into the spirit of things.

However, one horror-obsessed woman has revealed how she keeps her home ready for the spooky season year-round.

In fact, she’s even shared how she transforms her typical pad into something much more supernatural.

Like all good ghost stories, the tale begins with a rather gothic-looking young woman.

In this case though, it not Wednesday Adams but Sarah Adams from Banstead in Surrey who became obsessed with all this macabre at a young age.

Chatting with interiors brand Ruggable, she said: “I would say from the age of five years old, after watching Child’s Play, was when my love for Halloween and horror began.”

Despite watching the terrifying horror film, Adams wasn’t scared and became obsessed with cheap Halloween costumes.

That was until she got a bit older, with the mum transforming her home into a spooktacular-themed pad complete with a Wednesday-themed room, skeletons and fake pumpkins.

She gushed: “My house is horror-themed all year round, but all the pumpkin decor and ‘Happy Halloween’ decorations come out in July - I mean, where’s the fun if your decor only comes out for one month of the year!

“We have a Beetlejuice bathroom, which is like that all year. Our kitchen is a very gothic style, too, with our newly painted black units and horror prints on the wall,” she revealed, adding: “My daughter has a Wednesday inspired bedroom all year round as well, and my son has Marvel Halloween items in his bedroom such as bedding, pillows, throws and pumpkins.”

It’s been a labour of love though, with Adams upcycling second-hand kitchen units as part of the transformation.

To save even more cash, the thrifty woman undertook a lot of the work herself and used scaffolding boards from B&Q for shelving.

She explained: “Our kitchen is my favourite room, and the heart of our home. We have only recently finished it but, we opted for a second hand kitchen that we could upcycle to make our own. We cleaned it up and painted the units black and changed the door knobs.

“It’s the perfect kitchen for us and, again, not having to fork out loads on it was a bonus.”

Not content with decorating her home in varying shades of black and orange, Adams has spent years finding spooky additions for her fang-tastic home.

This included Beetlejuice-inspired props for her bathroom, with her admitting: “I’ve been collecting decor for years, whether that’s from charity shops, boot sales, Vinted or places such as Mad about Horror and Cosmic Comics.”

However, she does recommend DIYing items wherever you can with the mum-of-two even getting creative with her alternative Christmas trimmings.

“I also find you can get creative with Halloween decorations by making them yourself,” she admitted, adding: “I’ve made handmade pumpkins from old clothing and I made our fireplace garland and even painted up old apple crate boxes, too.”

Hopefully, that inspires you just in time for spooky season!
