Give Your House a Winter MakeoverLee Johnson
With drastic drops in temperature over the last few weeks, we think it’s fair to say that winter has finally arrived. This time of the year often means spending more time inside than you normally would – so why don’t you give yourself a project?
Forget spring cleaning; we think the winter months provide you with the perfect opportunity to spruce up your home. Don’t worry – it doesn’t have to be expensive or time consuming.
Small changes can sometimes be the most effective. To make an impact in your home, follow our top tips for the perfect house makeover.
Refresh Your Walls
One of the easiest (and most cost-effective) ways to breathe new life into a room is to simply refresh the walls. Depending on the specific room, this could be anything from giving them a new coat of paint to completely changing up the colour.
You could also hang up some new pictures, a mirror or a new colourful clock – anything to make it look a little different.
Rearrange the Furniture
Who would have thought that moving around furniture could change the entire look of a room? You could move your bed to the other side of the room or swap the way your couch and chairs are positioned – it can make your room look completely different.
Why not buy some new throws and pillows for your sofa? It’s a cost effective way to change up the look and feel of your living room.
Get Creative with Tiles
We all know that tiles make the perfect choice in any room in your house – whether it’s decorating the shower in your bathroom or creating a stunning backsplash in your kitchen. However, there are lots of different and creative ways in which tiles can be utilised within your home.
You could use them to use them to design your own stylish mosaic table top, or make some snazzy coasters for all the hot drinks you’ll be drinking during the winter.
Change Up Your Lighting
A change in lighting can really alter the way your house looks, and at a very affordable cost! You don’t have to spend thousands of pounds for effective lighting solutions. Strategically placed lamps can provide a room with ambiance and dimension.
LED lights also look good in kitchens, either as under counter lighting, accent lighting for floating shelves or to light up your island in the centre of the room.
