With the weather changing, the days becoming longer and the prospects of having guests round feeling more real, it is time to give your home a bit of a refresh. If you are looking to upgrade your house but don’t want to spend a huge amount, there are many ways that you can do so. From upcycling the furniture you already have, to focusing on accessories, you can have your home looking like a new place in no time. Here are some top ways that you can easily upgrade your home as we head into the new season…
- Invest in some new furniture
New furniture is a great way to instantly upgrade your home. If there is something that you have been saving for such as new glass dining tables or a sofa, it will make your space look completely transformed. You can also get smaller items such as a new coffee table, shelves on the wall or a new footstool. Be sure to check out sites such as Pinterest for some inspiration!
- Upcycle some items in your home
If you want new furniture but don’t have the budget, or love what you have but wish it was a different color, then why not upcycle it? Upcycling is a great way of breathing a new lease of life into furniture that you already have, or items that you come across in a thrift store. This can be done on anything from tables and chairs to bureaus and wardrobes. You can upcycle by adding in new drawer handles, painting a different color or changing the fabric - among other ways! It’s a great way to improve your furniture and also give yourself a project that you can be proud of too!
- Add panelling to the walls
Paneling is on-trend at the moment and is an easy way to upgrade your home. There is a whole myriad of videos and tutorials out there at the moment which can show you how to add paneling to your home yourself, or you can hire a professional who can do it for you. Whichever you choose, it is sure to make a real difference. Think carefully of the room you want to do it in and what color you want the walls to be.
- Get some key accessories
Accessories are ideal for upgrading a space, so why not add these in to your home? If you have shelves up, fill these with items like plants and photo frames. You can get artwork up on the walls, ornaments on your windowsill and so much more. Candles and reed diffusers are a good option as they will also make your home smell warm and inviting too.
By implementing these simple upgrades, soon your home will be filled with a new lease of life. You will find that you instantly notice a difference and feel more happy and relaxed when you are at home.
