6 Ways to Revitalise Your Home
When we walk through the door after a long day at work, all that we want to do is put our feet up in front of the tele in a place that we can call home. After a while, it’s natural to come to a point where we feel that our homes need a facelift to feel more, well, homely.
From wholesale changes to simply picking up after yourself, below are our six top ways to revitalise your home.
Let’s start with the furniture in our home. You might have bought that sofa new (or as good as new), but after a few years of propping us up, it’s probably about time you traded it in for a new one.
A tired out piece of furniture such as a sofa or chairs can really bring the mood down, whereas a brand new sofa is inviting and has the power to completely change the look and feel of the entire room. If you’re not quite ready to change your sofa and/or chairs, why not put a throw over the top?
Want to set the mood? A dimmer switch is so simple, yet so effective. Turn down the lights in the living room for movie night, or make for a romantic setting in the bedroom if you can’t decide between lights on and lights off.
If a dimmer switch isn’t for you, then experiment with spotlights. Suitable for contemporary themed rooms, spotlights are fantastic for highlighting your personal achievements, your favourite decorations or just to mix up the lighting in your room.
Have you ever looked at your interior doors? As in, really looked at them? You haven’t, have you? That’s fine, neither have a lot of homeowners, but you are missing a trick. Making a change to your doors can really bring a new lease of life into your home.
Stylish LPD doors do not have to cost the earth, and can make as big of a difference on the outside of the home as they can inside. For some examples of interior and exterior doors, please visit: https://www.blueprintjoinery.com/lpd-interior-exterior-doors/
A fresh lick of paint can truly make all of the difference in your home, and it doesn’t have to be expensive. Wallpapering can be a tiresome and costly job, whereas painting will help to keep costs to a minimum whilst providing maximum effect.
Warm colours project a warm atmosphere, which equals a much more homely atmosphere. While beige is a popular colour, it can appear to be quite bland unless decorated properly, so try to use soft colours such as turquoise and differing shades of pink and red.
A Personal Touch
To make your home really feel like home, you need to add a personal touch in every room. From family pictures to items of sentimental value, your home is supposed to represent you.
Walls are designed to showcase your personal achievements, and shelves are perfect for framed pictures of loved ones, as well as those unique gifts you buy when on holiday that serve no other purpose. Go crazy, your home is yours to do with as you like!
Clear the Clutter
Lastly, it has been said many times before, but clearing away any clutter really does make the world of difference. From binning anything you no longer need or wanting to make way for something new, clearing away clutter is a strangely soothing process!
If your home is in need of some TLC, you surely won’t go far wrong with our ideas listed above!
