Giving your home a few little changes and updates can make all the difference and give it a new lease of life. You don’t need to redecorate the whole place, add a few little touches, some new, and unique accessories and you’ll fall in love with your home again.

Sprucing Up Your Home This Summer

Give Your Home 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 brighten up your room and make it feel fresh again. It’s also a fun job, 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 in your home before you even go to the shop. People forget about the outside of their house too, but a lick of paint on the exterior will make a considerable difference as well. You might need to get a professional painter to come in, but it’ll be worth it to be the envy of all your neighbours.

Bring In Some Green

Add some plant life to your house with some greenery. Plants are perfect for maintaining air quality, and they also add an organic element to your decor. There are many plants that you can grow indoors without much effort. You could start with an indoor herb garden as all you need is just a pot or two and some space in your kitchen. Choose herbs like basil that require a lot of water, and make sure you keep them hydrated.

Get Organized

Make life easier for yourself, while you’re updating your home and adding a new look, also organize your home too. Invest in things like chalkboards, pin boards, and shared calendars which not only look good but can keep everyone in your house clear about what’s going on each week. Put up hooks for bags and coats and place shoe racks underneath. Get a beautiful plate or bowl for near the front door where you can keep keys and loose change, and get yourself a letter rack in the hall too.

Accessorize

Throws and cushions are makeup for your living room and are brilliant because you can change them depending on how you are feeling and what season it is. The effect is nothing short of transformative so if your room is feeling a bit dull, try 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 put some photos up! Get some beautiful picture frames from Best4Frames and put up pictures of your favourite people, places, and memories.
