If you’re looking for ways to add some value to your home without having to spend an arm and a leg, there are plenty of small things you can do. From simple styling to artwork and even camouflaging your television, the options are endless. Here are some interesting and simple things you can do today to make your home feel and look fabulous.
- De Clutter. You would be amazed how different a space can look once it’s been de-cluttered and given a bit of a spring-clean. You can go as far as to remove a piece of furniture that might not be serving the room anymore or you can simply go for removing knick-knacks that take up space. Even if you don’t want to throw these items out, you can always store them away temporarily. Once you’ve given the space some breathing room you can really see its true potential and maybe start thinking of ways to enhance the space further with new decorations or finishes.
- Add a statement piece. Whether it’s a lovely large scale artwork or an eye-catching sculpture, every room should have a piece in it that catches someone’s attention. Of course always make sure it’s suited to the room; there’s no point putting an exotic vase with an elaborate etching in the bathroom where nobody is going to see it. Think about the purpose of the room and work from there. Bedrooms and living rooms are great places to hang artworks that tie in with the plain colour on the walls.
- Invest in quality. Especially when it comes to things like drapes, furniture and artwork. There is a big difference between high quality curtains and ones that are only going to last 6 months before they start to fray. Depending on what you want to invest in, the payoff could be massive. Start off with some lush pillows and quilts and gradually add to your collection until the room is completely upgraded.
- Fresh paint. There’s no better way to add some much needed life to a room than a fresh lick of paint. Even if you aren’t a professional painter, it’s an easy and simple way to make your home feel brand new. Try to go for a neutral colour, like a cream beige, one that is on trend but also one that you can stand to look at every day. Whether you’re planning on selling sometime soon or just want to spruce up your palette a little bit, painting is a good place to start.
