Giving your home a makeover can be a fun way to spend a few weekends, yet one factor that may be putting people off is the cost of updates that really make a difference. However, there are some fun, simple fixes that can transform the look of a room that doesn’t cost the earth. Subtle, clever additions can give your home a completely new feel and look, while giving you a project too.

Makeover Your Home

Update your tableware

Updating your tableware can be a fun and easy way to change up your kitchen, especially if they will be on display. Think about durability and practicality, and you could go one step further and incorporate the colour scheme into some new tea-towels, artwork, a kitchen clock, or a kettle, for example. To revamp your kitchen, you don’t need to change the cabinets and surfaces, rather be savvy with subtle changes that will collectively completely revamp the hub of the home.

Add some houseplants

Houseplants can really add to a room, as not only do they provide a pop of colour, they actually can make the space more breathable as they purify the air. Add to this their noted calming qualities, and it is no surprise that houseplants are forever growing in popularity. You can easily find houseplants that are suited to certain rooms in the house, and play with levels for added character.


De-cluttering may not seem an obvious choice when it comes to giving your home a makeover. However, the mental benefits of a de-clutter alone should be reason enough to spend an afternoon having a clear out. Regardless of whether you sell, donate, or in the things you chuck, see how much additional space you create by simply getting rid of clothes, items of products you don’t use anymore. With all your additional space you may be able to move furniture around, to see if another layout will work, or otherwise buy a new key feature piece that can alter the look of your room and inspire your style choices for the rest of the space.

Change the flooring

An easy way to revamp the look of any room while also providing a practical solution in terms of maintenance is by changing to wooden flooring. Not only is it durable and easy to clean, but wooden flooring can also completely modernise, rejuvenate and brighten a space easily, making it the perfect update and investment for your home. Kens Yard has a range of engineered wood flooring of great quality, so be sure to check it out to get inspired.

Rethink your colour scheme

Your colour scheme is a fundamental feature of any room. By playing around with different tones, or completely changing your colour scheme through your additional furnishings such as blinds, cushions, rugs and throws, you can easily bring a touch of rejuvenated style to your living room or bedroom. Play around with a colour wheel to find the best colours that match, and see how much your room changes just through some simple touches. Changing your lampshades is another easy way to incorporate your colour scheme easily.
