Feeling bored with your home’s décor isn’t a nice feeling. Sometimes it can appear impossible to bring a level of classiness back to your house, and a full renovation project can feel overwhelming. But there are some things you can do to improve the look and feel of your home without needing to spend months redecorating and replacing everything in the place. We’ve got some ideas for you add some elegance, no matter the rooms that requires it.
This is not only one of the most popular rooms in the house these days, but it’s also one of the first things people will remember when viewing your home if you’re selling. Kitchens and bathrooms are at the top of people’s lists as they take a bit more work to fully renovate due to plumbing, replacing worktops and appliances. A kitchen doesn’t need to just be for food preparation. Think about adding an area for guests to sit using attractive banquette seating. This stops people being stuck to one room at dinner parties and they won’t have to hover around the kitchen whilst you’re cooking, and you could also convert the room into a kitchen diner.
Outdoor spaces require a lot of work but having a welcoming, refreshing outdoor area is ideal for any home. You may be wondering though, what more can you add to a garden other than plants and decking areas? First, consider adding an extension to make use of often-unused areas next to your home. A glass-roofed veranda attached to your home is a great way to mix the outside with the in. These elegant structures provide you with cover from the elements without detracting from the joy of being outdoors. Nationwide offer a range of verandas each with their own exquisite appearance. Choose some soft, warm mood lighting as well, to bring attention to certain features of your garden after sunset. Taking these steps can transform your garden into something truly breathtaking.
Clutter can have a habit of being drawn to your lounge area, especially if you have kids. Simplifying your room by removing storage and unnecessary furniture is an ideal way of giving your living room a fresher, more welcoming feel. Add some pleasant, vintage light fittings and some quirky artwork, and you’ll see that the room is already beginning to feel like a completely different place. Complete the look with an environmentally friendly electric fireplace and you’ve got both cosy and chic entwined.
There is a lot of choices you can make to spruce up your bathroom. Of course, other than noticing when it’s not clean, your visitors will notice any poorly done tiling or grouting work. First, make sure these aren’t a problem for you. Large, eye-catching, patterned tiles are a lovely choice, especially when laid diagonally. Most bespoke bathrooms are done this way, and it tends to be much more complicated as a lot of tiles will need to be cut to fit the room. When it comes to a bathroom though, it’s often the smaller touches that have the largest impact. Classy soap pumps and hand creams that are refilled will eradicate the unsightly look of branded soap and shampoo containers lying around! Don’t forget to find some other handy ways to organise your bathroom as well. Finally, add some greenery to the room for a calming and inviting feel. Plants not only improve air quality; they’ve also been found to boost our mood too!
