Perhaps your home décor hasn’t changed for the past 15 years, or maybe you’re just in the mood for a change. Either way, there are plenty of simple ways to refresh your home without spending a small fortune doing so. Little changes can truly make a big difference, and in some cases, you don’t need to spend a penny! So, take a look at these simple ways to get your home out of a style rut and try a few for yourself:
- Rearrange Your Furniture
We’ve all been there. Reimaging how the room would look if your furniture was swapped around. What’s stopping you? This is a great solution if you’re determined not to buy anything new. In your bedroom, something as simple as changing the position of your bedroom can make a significant difference. In your living room, try rearranging the sofas so that there’s more space, or to make it feel cosier.
- Get Rid of Old Pieces
If you want to give your room a facelift, then the most effective way to do this is by replacing your old furniture. Wait until the biggest sales are on and take a trip to your local furniture store to try and pick up a few steals like swapping your old leather sofa for more refreshing cane furniture. You could also complement your new furniture with stick-on decals and removable wallpaper, which can add a pop of colour to the room.
- Move the Mirrors
Mirrors are an underrated powerful design tool, because they reflect the light from windows and lamps, allowing the light to bounce around the room. If your mirror is positioned in a dark corner, then you’re not making the most of it! Try positioning it across from a window so it created the illusion of a bigger room. And if you don’t own a mirror, then head to thrift stores to start your search.
- Play Around With Colours
One of the best ways to spend little money but make a big difference is by investing in textiles. For example, in your bathroom, just some simple changes such as colourful towels can transform the space. Similarly, in the conservatory, cushions on your outdoor wicker furniture can completely change the look of the space, updating the area. If your goal is to include more colour and patterns in your interior design, then soft furnishings are an excellent way to do it.
- Replace the Hardware
You might not think it, but replacing your hardware is the easiest way to make it look like you’ bought new furniture. This trick works for smaller thing such as door handles, kitchen drawer pulls and doorknobs. Before you embark on your transformation, you should firstly check that they’re all easy to replace!
