Give Your Rooms A Fresh Coat Of Paint
A lick of paint can make a world of difference to any room. Whether it’s a new colour or even just a fresh coat of the old one, it will still brighten up your room and make it feel fresh again. It’s also quite a fun job too, picking colours and getting samples, or today you can actually upload photos of your room to websites and virtually apply colour to your walls, giving you the chance to see how a shade will look, before you even head to the shop. People often forget about the outside of their house too, but a lick of paint on the outside of your home will make a huge difference also. You might need to get a professional exterior painting contractor in, but it’ll be worth it to be the envy of all your neighbours.

Organisation is Key
Make life easier for yourself at the same time as adding a new look to your house by creating organisation stations in your home. Use chalkboards, pin boards and shared calendars which not only look good but can keep everyone in your household clear about what’s happening each week. Put up pegs for bags and coats and place shoe racks underneath. Pop a plate or bowl near the front door for keys and loose change, and get yourself a letter rack in the hall.
Throw pillows are makeup for your living room and are brilliant because you can swap them depending on how you feel and what season it is, and the effect is nothing short of transformative. If your room is feeling a bit dull, consider adding a few pillows in vibrant colours to bring more uplifting vibes. Throws and rugs can also do the same, and your room and the best thing about new accessories is that they don’t have to be expensive. Then treat yourself to some unique pieces that will add to the decor. Have a look at some art or antiques, and if you’re new to this, then there’s plenty of information online on how to haggle a better price.
