- Dress your furniture
Soft furnishings (if chosen right) can enhance the entire aesthetic of your home and offer a cosy and layered feeling to your rooms. So if your sofas or beds are looking a little shabby or dull, rather than forking out on new ones, try dressing them up with some soft furnishings such as cushions and throws.
- New knobs
If you’re looking for a way to spruce up your kitchen on the cheap, upgrading the knobs on your cupboards and drawers is the way to go. It immediately improves the look and feel of your kitchen.
- Wall art
No house is truly a home without some fabulous works of art hanging on the walls. This could be a dedicated gallery wall with photos of your nearest and dearest or a feature wall with a framed work from design specialists SNS Group – whatever floats your boat.
- Go green
Plants aren’t just for the garden, they’re also excellent decorative pieces for your home interior. When it comes to plants, the bigger the better. If you’re not sure what to go for, succulents are a good choice – they’re low maintenance and adapted to thrive indoors.
- Liven up your walls
If your walls are looking a little bit bland, transform them into gorgeous works of art by decorating them with wallpapers with attractive and unusual designs. This is particularly effective in transitional spaces where the décor is minimal such as hallways and pantries.
- Mirror magic
Mirrors work wonders in the home – they brighten up a space by reflecting light, make smaller rooms appear larger and if you opt for a large and decorative product, they make a great focal point for a room. For inspiration, browse mirrors on Ashley Furniture HomeStore – it has a fab selection of products.
- Long curtains
There’s something rather classy about a home with tall ceilings. So if you’re looking to create the illusion of height, buy floor to ceiling curtains and hang them from a ceiling track. As well as adding height, they cover the whole window, so make a room feel more snug and cosy, and they fall more elegantly, so look more visually pleasing.
As you can see, there are plenty of simple actions you can take to kickstart your home transformation project. Follow these seven terrific tips and enjoy as your home interior is enhanced in ways you never thought possible.
