Spring is here. It’s time for change. If areas of your home have been bothering you for a while now, there’s no time like the present for a small update. Whether a complete overhaul of the interiors is required or just a couple of changes, pour that new lease of life that spring gives us right back into your home.
Change is underfoot
If that tired old carpet was getting you down throughout winter, get rid. If an overhaul is needed with a number of carpets, think about high traffic areas – you’ll need something durable and hardwearing. What about the kids? Are they prone to spills? A stylish and easy to clean option will update the look, but make sure it lasts.
Give it a personal touch
Even if you’ve been in your home for a while now, you can still update it with a more personal feel. How much does your home really say about you? Does it embrace everything you’re about and everything that makes you feel good?
With money being a little tight at the moment, you don’t necessarily need to think along the lines of a complete overhaul; just a couple of touches. Think about adding citrus colours and fresher scents to bring the feeling of spring indoors. A couple of throws, some nice cushions or even a feature wall. Let your personality out. You’ll be surprised what you can make of a room with just a couple of alterations.
Shabby chic furniture
Where once it was all about sleek, contemporary finishes, we’re now seeing more of a resurgence of shabby chic furniture. Typically it all has the feel of wear and tear to it as the items are deliberately distressed, with designers promising a timeless, classic look.
Many pieces in this trend carry the feel of pre-loved cherished furniture, inspired by antique elegance. Furniture like this is perfect to make a home feel relaxing and comfy – like it should be. If you’re updating in spring, a bold decision instead of flat-pack options could make the world of difference.
Revitalising your kitchen on a budget
Revamping the kitchen is a great way to breathe some new life into a home. But it’s expensive to have a complete overhaul. If you’re on a budget, don’t despair. Adding a lick of paint and replacing kitchen cupboard doors will instantly give the illusion of a new space.
