Renovating your home can often become a very expensive and time consuming process, however there are a handful of ways in which you can brighten your interiors and give them a new look without breaking the bank. Whilst renovating your interiors looks at changing everything, sometimes making smaller changes can make a bigger difference than you’d initially expect. Here are a few inspiring ways in which you can give your interiors a fresh new look and brighten them at the same time!
Fresh Coat of Paint
If you feel your interiors are beginning to look dull, lifeless and tired then often a fresh lick of paint can change all of that. Adding a fresh coat of paint to your walls will instantly lift the atmosphere, creating a bold, new look that brightens your home. Whether you’re looking to introduce a new colour to your interiors, or you simply repaint the walls in the same colour, either way will work perfectly and give your home a fresh new look.
Update the Flooring
You often find that your flooring can have a large effect on the whole atmosphere of a room. Dependant on the type of flooring you have, there are always ways in which you can revive it and lift the rooms overall look. It’s not always necessary to replace your whole flooring material, as this can sometimes become an expensive, time-consuming process. If you have carpet, giving them a good clean will brighten the up and make them look fresh and new. Similarly, if you have wooden flooring, spend an afternoon re-varnishing or staining the wood to give it a brighter, fresh look and revive it completely.
New Blinds and Curtains
The way you dress your home plays a huge part in the way it looks, for example, if you add some stunning, bold curtains to a room, there will be a great deal of character and style filtering through the room. Introducing blinds to your interiors can help to manage the amount of light you want filtering through your home, as well as add privacy and security. If you feel your windows don’t need blinds, curtains are also a great option. You often find that people use their curtains as more of a stylish addition than a practical one, in which case blinds would work perfectly for closing the room off and the curtains can simply add a boost of character to the room.
The hardware on our doors are often used every day, multiple times a day, and as a result of this they can become tired and faded after a while. Investing in new front door handles, sliding door handles and even door pulls will instantly lift the rooms atmosphere. It’s surprising how much of a difference small changes such as hardware can make to your interiors. Similarly, updating your curtain poles, window handles and so on can create a really bold look and make your home feel new and fresh.
Adding artwork to your interiors is one of the easiest and quickest ways to brighten the décor. You don’t have to spend lots of money on really expensive pieces, simply adding a good piece of art to any room will add character and create a welcoming, warm atmosphere. You can add artwork in so many different ways, from paintings, photography, sculptures and so on.
