If you’re about to put your house up for sale, or want to impress a future in-law (kidding!) or just want to feel better about your home, here are some easy and c-h-e-a-p ways to spruce up your surroundings.
#1: Freshen Up With Paint
Paint is a fantastic and easy method of creating a new style for the rooms in your home. Whether you’re looking to achieve a super stylish contemporary look or a relaxed classic finish – the appropriate stark or neutral colours of paint can apply you with the budget substitute.
#2: Stand-Out Features
Features such as fireplaces, cast iron radiators and period furniture will instantly add a quality value to your home. Victorian furniture is typically quite expensive when you think of antique shops and auctions however if you shop around different online companies you may just find yourself a gem. When it comes to heating your home – you can now do it in style. The words designer and radiator may seem as if they are strangers to each other, but these days they complement each other, as luxury within your home is growing popular. For a period property oozing traditional Victorian elegance then traditional radiators are perfect for you, ideal for enhancing that refined demure style.
However to save money, many suppliers now retail radiator accessories instead of forking out for the full radiator. Another tasteful way of fashioning your living room is with a feature fireplace. It will be a beautiful focal point, warming up your space quickly and give the family something to congregate around.
Don’t become a hoarder – get rid of those unwanted … things … that clutter your home and decrease its value. Have a good clear out to create extra space as this will make the rooms look significantly bigger than they are. It also keeps the home looking clean and calm, something a potential buyer is looking for and would view as a great canvas for them to design on. Even on the house exterior you can remove any unwanted clutter or weeding such as ivy – this will make your home look less chaotic and improve people’s first impressions.
#4: Stylish Accessorizing
Accessorizing is the new bargain alternative to improving your home. Rather than purchasing that brand new sofa why not invest in a lavish cover/throw and stylish cushions to enhance the room’s decor whilst adding chic comfort. Similarly, in rooms with a considerable amount of cupboards i.e. the kitchen area, you can shop around for decorative handles and knobs to add a touch of class.
