Whether you’ve just moved into a new house, or your long-term home is crying out for some attention, we all need to work on our interiors at some point. Fortunately, it’s very easy to give your home a fresh and improved look when you know how. Keep reading for simple style tips and tricks that will help you transform your interiors.
1. A clean home = a clear mind
View the new year as an opportunity to do a thorough clean and clear out of your home. We are not just talking about wiping the surfaces or giving the floor a mop. A deep clean is required to breathe life into your space and give you a positive outlook on your interiors. Make a point of dealing with all those difficult jobs like the inside of the cupboards and the oven. You should also take this opportunity to clear out unwanted and unused items from your home. A proper clean and clear out will really improve the look of your home and is a good place to start on your interior transformation project.
2. Maximise on natural light
Increasing the amount of natural light in your home will improve the look and feel of your interiors. Windows should be left as open and uncluttered as possible. If you have items obstructing your windows like plant pots, floor lamps or furniture, move these to a different location. During the day be sure to keep curtains open and blind up. Another simple style trick that will increase the natural light in your home is to place mirrors opposite windows. The mirrors will reflect the light in different parts of the room. Additionally, use a neutral colour palette throughout your home to help brighten the space.
3. Use your space wisely
Look at each room individually and assess whether you could be using the space in more effective way. Sofas and armchairs brought in from walls, even by a few inches, can make a room feel warm and comfortable. This task may involve a little bit of trial and error until you find a layout that is both comfortable and an effective use of space. When assessing your use of space don’t forget to consider your storage cupboards. Install clever storage solutions like shelves, drawers and boxes to ensure you are getting the most out of the space.
4. Keep it smelling fresh
When your home is filled with beautiful aromas, it is a more pleasant place to be. There are many ways to improve the smell of your home. Cleaning the carpets and washing your sofa and cushion covers will leave your rooms smelling fresh. Introducing scented candles and home scents throughout your house will also help. Flowers are another way to ensure your home smells sweet, and they also add class and elegance to your home.
As you can see, transforming your home needn’t be difficult. With these few simple steps your home will look cleaner, brighter and more organised, and will smell fresher too!
