New Beauty Blogging Backgrounds on a Budget!

You may have noticed over the last few posts that I have some new beauty blogging backdrops. I have recently been renovating my first home and blogging during this period has been really hard, finding any space to work, store my products and photograph them well. I had a look around for ideas that I could use and then, whilst choosing laminate for the house, came across the perfect solution.

Laminate flooring samples make fantastic beauty blogging photo backgrounds and are also incredibly cheap for a simple square. I had a look online at B&Q and had a look through their laminate samples and saw that they were selling some of their discontinued lines of laminate samples for 1p! I chose three that were 1p and did a click and collect. One thing I would say about B&Q is don’t do click and collect, my order wasn’t put together for when I arrived so was a lot of wasted time queuing. After a lot of faffing I ended up going with their flooring expert to find the samples I had ordered. He found the three I was after and, after finding out what I was using them for, offered to go through the rest of the discontinued lines with a scanner looking for ones that were 1p.

He was so nice and I ended up with 5 different flooring samples for 1p and also bought their Colours Leggiero White Oak Effect Laminate Flooring Sample for £2 as I loved the distressed painted floor effect. I love having simple backgrounds that I can store away easily but are great for photographing products on without distracting from the item. If you are looking for more beauty blogger backgrounds go into your local B&Q and see if you can get the same 1p bargain laminate samples that I did!

    This is such a brilliant idea, then you’re able to chop and change as and when you please, and they’re so cheap too?! Amazing xxx

    I went to B&Q the other day and completely loaded up on wall paper samples, they’re free and they make a brilliant background!

    Ahh I’ve been searching for a whitewash wood effect sample for a while, think I’ll just pop into B&Q to track one down!

    This is an awesome idea. I’m not a beauty blogger- I’m a book blogger- but I could do with some new backgrounds for my pictures. I think a trip to B&Q is in order!

    What a smart idea! I might just have to visit a hardware store soon. My table and room are messy in general, so I photograph my stuff on my grey sheets for the neutrality. Didn’t even think to just buy laminate squares! Thanks for sharing! <3
