If you have been in your home for a number of years you may be getting itchy feet and feel like you need a change of scenery. But what if you love the area you live in and you don’t really want the hassle of moving? Well, there are some easy and affordable ways to improve the look and feel of your home, so why not get started today!
Do some painting
One of the simplest and most affordable ways to update the look of your home is by adding a fresh coat of paint. It will make your rooms look cleaner and more vibrant, and can transform the look of your whole home. Painting with neutral tones and white colours can make the space seem bigger and more spacious.
Why not look at some magazines or websites for inspiration and try out some paint samples in different areas of your home. Once your room has been painted you may find that some pieces of furniture don’t fit in with your new colour scheme. This gives you the chance to declutter your home, making it seem fresher as well.
Let in the light
Letting more natural light into a room not only makes it look more spacious, but also makes the room more comfortable and enjoyable to be in. Avoid heavy, dark curtains or furnishings that make the space feel dark and claustrophobic. If you don’t have the opportunity for natural light to enter your room from windows, consider installing a skylight.
Increasing the natural light in a room is not only environmentally friendly and energy saving, but it can also boost your mood. Studies show that people who are exposed to more natural light throughout the day have better sleep and reduced stress levels.
Bring the outdoors indoors
Indoor plants and flowers create a fresh look and feel in your home. They look and smell good and give a quick, instant boost to your mood.
Keep your carpets and upholstery looking fresh
An area of the home that is often overlooked is the carpet. Regular vacuuming and spot cleaning of your carpets can prolong their life, but to keep them looking like new regular, professional carpet cleaning is a must. Typically, there are three different carpet cleaning methods that professionals use. These are steam carpet cleaning, dry-extraction and foam extraction cleaning.
