When refreshing up your home there are plenty of small changes that can be made to liven up the old and create big impact. Without the need for an interior decorator and without splashing the cash, here are 8 great ways to update your home.

Add mirrors

A great way to elevate your living space is to add a mirror. Not only do they make your space brighter and roomier, they add a touch of glamour, and are relatively inexpensive. Simply choose the size and style for each room and get hanging. Take a look at our favourites below:

Change the colour scheme

This is easier than it sounds. If your walls are of a fairly neutral shade, all it takes it replacing tired cushions with new, adding new throws and replacing the rug to match. These colour changes will inject new life into your living space. If you’re going for yellow, why not choose these accessories:

Update your pictures

Bring new life to your walls with brand new pictures. Pictures can fade and can easily make your living space look outdated, so why not display new memories in your home? If you’ve grown tired of your frames, these can be inexpensively replaced.

Update the shelves

Tired of looking at the same ornaments? Less is more, so why not free up space on your shelves? Take some ornaments away and repurpose them in other parts of your home. This not only creates a sense of space, but helps turn an ordinary shelf into a stylish statement piece. If you are in need of some new candles or vases, we have a great selection to suit all styles and transform your shelves and sideboards.

Create a feature wall

Create a feature wall with a new colour. Don’t be afraid to go bold, just make sure the colour matches your brand new cushions, throws and accessories. Painting or wallpapering is one of the cheapest ways you can update your interior, and if you’re only updating one wall, it can be done in a flash.

Brand new cups and cutlery

It’s very easy to get used to the same old mugs in the kitchen cupboard. Chips and stains can become unnoticeable…but not to guests. Why not refresh your kitchenware with new cups, cutlery and dinner sets for an instant refresh that won’t break the bank.

Paint your front door

When it come to refreshing your home, you often concentrate on the indoors and forget the exterior. Your front door counts a lot for first impressions and is as important as the updates to the interior. A little bit of TLC with our masonry paint and your exterior will look as good as new. Go neutral or stand out with a bright pop of colour.

Tend to the front garden

We spend very little time in the front garden, so it’s understandable that it can get forgotten about. However, it’s amazing what a little gardening and extra flowers can do for your home. Whether you clean the paving slabs with a pressure washer, cut the grass or hang brand new hanging baskets, little touches can go a long way.

So there you have it. We hope these 8 tips will give you the inspiration you need to update your home for the new year. Don’t be afraid to take away, as less can go a long way. And if you’re feeling daring, go bold with colour.
