The soon-to-come season change is the perfect time to freshen up the look of your home. And unless you want to invest in some serious remodelling work, you can boost the feel of your interior quickly and effectively with some expert-recommended tips. What’s more, you can use the following tips regardless of the season and current month as long as you find the ideas inspirational, fun and interesting.
Upgrade the décor
Your home might benefit a lot from just a simple tweak in your décor style. This doesn’t mean that you have to change absolutely everything, but certain items are rather easy to spruce and change up in order to bring more life and freshness into your home. That said, definitely consider changing your current decorative cushion cases. If you’ve been rocking neutrals so far, it’s time to opt for vivid brights or vice versa! The same goes for your other textures such as curtains, tablecloths and sofa covers. Also, you can introduce lovely flowers into your interior and add more color next to your regular home plants. If you’re not the biggest fan of keeping flowers in vases, you can achieve the same effect with faux flowers, too!
Switch up your wall art
Art is generally very personal and as such has a tremendous influence on the way you perceive your home. Of course, if you enjoy the pieces you have on your walls, don’t hesitate to keep them – you might want to look into sprucing up or replacing the frames, though. But if you feel like your art could do with a little upgrade, make sure to explore your options in this regard as well. If you’re the one who made your current wall art and generally find yourself to be artistic, feel free to take up this project and continue giving your interior a nice personal touch through your creative mind.
Improve the quality of air
Freshening up your home is often associated with deep cleaning, and while this is true as well, it’s also important to remember just how crucial the air quality can be for your well-being. In that respect, don’t forget to let the fresh air inside your home thoroughly. Also, it would be wise to invest in a top-notch air purifier in order to keep your home better protected from dust and other allergens hiding in the air. Furthermore, you can experiment with new scents for your candles and/or diffuser to elevate the overall atmosphere inside your home.
Rearrange the furniture
If you want to freshen up the look of your home in a very effective yet equally inexpensive way, definitely give furniture rearrangement a go. Analyze the layout of your rooms beforehand so that you can get a proper idea of how things could work differently and what furniture pieces could go where. This will make the whole project a lot easier. When you’re rearranging the furniture, keep in mind that you can also move around your art, decorative bits and bobs, rugs, etc. Even just a simple switch up of your books and trinkets on the bookshelf can make a positive difference.
Play with paint and wallpaper
Fresh paint and maybe even wallpaper can freshen up your home 100%. This project is very simple to DIY, especially if you’re just set on creating one accent wall. In general, you can use the same shade just to bring life back to your interior or explore your options with other shades. Even your doors and windows can do with a fresh coat of paint, especially if you choose something contrasting compared to the rest of your interior. And self-adhesive wallpaper is truly the simplest way to give your own unique touch and clutter-free detailing to your rooms.
If you feel like your home is too overwhelming for any kind of freshening up project, it might be time to do some decluttering before you try to tweak other aspects of your place. Not only will this make your home more attractive, pleasant and easier to work with, but it will also help you get rid of mental pressure that clutter can cause. That said, don’t hesitate to declutter everything, from your furniture and kitchen pantry/drawers to your clothes and bathroom necessities.
