If you love your home but think its perhaps looking a bit dated or tired, there are loads of things you can do to give it a freshen up. Whether it be giving the whole house an overhaul, or concentrating on one or two rooms, it all makes a difference. Here are 4 fabulous ways to give your home a facelift.
Change your furniture
Décor isn’t the only way to change your home and give it a new lease of life. If you have been using the same sofas for the last twenty years, or your dining table is worse for wear, consider replacing them. New bedroom furniture and bedding can make a room feel like it has been completely transformed. If your budget doesn’t allow for brand new things, have a look online for second hand or upcycle your existing furniture. Changing pictures, altering your lighting, or even adding new accessories can give the perception of a makeover but without a hefty price tag.
Revamp the Kitchen
Getting a new kitchen fitted can make it feel like you got a completely new house. There are so many amazing kitchens these days, your main issue might be deciding which one to pick! From shaker style to handle-less units and white to navy color options, a new kitchen can create a wow factor in any home.
If you are tight on cash, there are ways you can change your kitchen at a fraction of the price. Changing your cabinet doors and keeping the existing carcasses can reduce the total spend by a huge amount. If you love your cabinets but want a different look, consider changing your countertops and leaving everything else in place. Adding the best glass countertops money can buy or having quartz or granite tops fitted will give your kitchen a facelift.
Decorate and repaint
You might be surprised how different your home can look just from applying a fresh coat of paint or adding some feature wallpaper. If your ceilings aren’t particularly high, painting them white will create the illusion of them being higher than they are. Woodwork such as skirtings and facings, if already painted, should also be given a fresh coat. You will likely need at least two coats of paint on walls to get good coverage. Your home will look transformed by the time it’s all done.
Flooring and window dressings
Changing your flooring and window dressings is another way to give your home a facelift. Maybe your carpets have started to wear, or perhaps you fancy changing the look by adding laminate or hardwood flooring instead. New flooring can make a home look more spacious and provide a fresh and airy feel.
Whether you want curtains, roller blinds, or traditional shutters – window dressings can do the trick too. There are some amazing fabrics on sale these days, so whether you want curtains made in fragile silk or prefer something cozier like luxurious velvet, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding what you are after.
