When it comes to our homes, we’re all occasionally tempted to think that the grass is greener on the other side and long for what we don’t have. But for most of us, moving house whenever we feel like something new is simply not an option, and there’s really no need to, especially when it’s so easy to quickly update your home to make it feel new again.
To help you get started on your path to a quick and easy makeover, here are our top three ways to make your home feel good as new again.
Changing the furniture in your home can be very expensive, so if you want to quickly update a room without spending too much the best thing to do is buy new soft furnishings.
Pick out a theme or colour scheme and buy throws, pillows and cushions within that palette to give your interior décor a whole new look. Try mixing fabrics and textures to create an eclectic, but still unified, look.
A new door
Your door is the first thing that people will see when they visit your home, so consider changing yours to ensure your home makes the best possible first impression.
There are plenty of styles you can choose from – Safestyle UK has lots of varieties – but the key is to make sure it fits in with the overall style of the rest of the house.
Plenty of high-street stores now sell expensive-looking but very affordable chandeliers, which are perfect for giving a room an elegant look. Go for a traditional chandelier if you want to create a period feel with your interior décor, or go for all out modern decadence with this Art Deco-style chandelier.
If you don’t want to change your ceiling lights, you could just buy some striking new table or free-standing lamps to brighten up a room. You can also use changing your lighting as an opportunity to change your old light bulbs for energy-saving ones, which will help you to save money in the long run.
