We are always looking at ways to revamp our homes. We have some small changes you can make to make your home look brand new. Check out our tips below.
Painting your walls can be a small and effective way to freshen up your space. We recommend painting your walls a neutral tone, this allows you to change the colour scheme through your furnishings whenever you want. If you don’t fancy a complete colour change, then a repaint of the same colour will give your rooms a new lease of life.
Give all your windows a clean inside and out to allow in plenty of light. Make a statement with some curtains, shutters and blinds, they can provide a good amount of privacy and allow light to filter in.
Adding a rug to a room with hard flooring can instantly make it feel warm and cosy. Either make it neutral to blend in or make it bright as a statement piece. For a modern look, go for a rug with an abstract pattern, or if your feeling inspired, create your own bespoke rug, there are many websites to help guide you.
Cushions and throws can transform your space into a cosy inviting area to sit or sleep. They are great as they are interchangeable with colors between seasons. For spring and summer, have yellows, light blues and pinks and for Autumn winter colours, opt for dark oranges, Burgundy and browns.
