We design our homes to our own taste. But over time, even the most beautiful homes require a few changes here and there to maintain their charm. This is the reason why we should consider a fresh makeover every once in a while. You do not have to remodel your entire home in order to renew the look and you don’t even have to spend a lot of money! With some simple steps, you can bring a sparkling new look to your home.

Spring clean your home

Basic cleaning is done day to day but some real improvements can be made when you plan a deep clean. This involves taking away clutter like newspapers, magazines, and anything that is not in its correct place then dusting and washing items that don’t require frequent cleaning. You may add some storage spaces for items that do not have a home anymore. Dust off your decorations, accessories, blinds and dispose of outdated ones to create a fresh beginning.

Create a focal point

A focal point for a certain room can be created by covering a feature wall with artwork, paintings, hanging mirrors or even with patterned wallpaper.

Rearrange the furniture

Place your furniture at interesting angles in front of your focal point. Create an area for uninterrupted conversation or reading, angled away from televisions. Furniture doesn’t always have to be placed against walls if you have enough room. Be sure to consider the space you have, there should still be plenty of room to walk through the room.

Use some rugs

Rugs can also add a great look to your home. There are different colours, sizes and materials of rugs that you may use. Using area rugs can add a different feel to your room and can also protect your flooring at the same time.

Add some green

Select plants of varying heights and species. Be sure that these are in good health condition and are well-trimmed. You can also use a vase of fresh flowers as centrepiece.

Change your fabrics

Change your curtains and replace bed covers and cushions to give an entirely new look. These small adjustments can really help give your room a new life. Colours work best when reflecting the season, use pastel colours for spring, or deep reds and greens for winter.
