As a result of the current pandemic, you’re likely to have spent more time at home and, consequently, found more and more things wrong with your house. Perhaps you’ve noticed the cracks on the walls, the empty space where the shelves were supposed to be constructed, or the outdated lampshades that will never come back into fashion?
If you feel that your home needs your care and attention, now’s the time to give it some. Here are some ways to transform your house into a stylish abode, with both expensive and affordable alternatives, to impress your guests once the pandemic is over.
Having a beautiful home means that you have thought through everything, and nothing is overlooked. Even minor changes and improvements can make a world of difference to your house, and there are many different innovations to help create a bigger sense of space in your home. Focus on the details and build up from there. For example, replacing your existing set of radiators with a new radiators can make the difference between a boring, basic kitchen and a chic, rustic and tasteful living space. Check out these traditional radiators by Designer Radiators Direct, which are bound to impress and gain compliments! DRD sells a range of radiators and accessories, including traditional and contemporary designs, all with free delivery.
If money is no object, consider installing an automatic lighting system. This has the potential to push your house into the next century, amaze your neighbours, and is so efficient that it can even save you money on your electricity bills. Keeping with the modern theme, consider refreshing your bathroom with a white ceramic finish, sleek tiled walls and glass shower doors for a minimalistic, contemporary and clean feel. There are plenty of technological innovations that you can incorporate into any room to make your house more comfortable and relaxing, such as mood lighting for the bathroom, and heated flooring for the winter.
Do It Yourself!
You don’t need to hire expensive designers or have a qualification in home design to create your perfect living space. After all, it is your home and it should be personalised to your own needs. Before purchasing new items, consider re-purposing existing furniture. This is particularly important if your budget is limited, as you can work with what you have. If you have half-empty tins of paint lying around in your garage, put them to good use. Upcycle your old, tired cabinets and furniture with a new coat of paint to refresh a bedroom or to create a centrepiece in your kitchen.
Stop staring at the peeling wallpaper and do something about it! Make a start on making your house more of a home you’re proud of.2
