Reupholster the Furniture
Reupholstering the home furniture can add a new and fresh look to your entire space.It’s a lot more cost effective that purchasing a new 3 piece suite, keeps furniture out of landfill and can give you a real sense of pride if you manage to tackle the project yourself.
If you are fond of eclectic decorating, angular mirrors, marble fireplaces, retro photography, and rustic stools, you can choose a material that will compliment these perfectly. Reupholstering can help you to add a new impeccable look to your living space. Also, do not forget to complement the room with the softness of rugs and throws.
Adding a canopy can turn your bedroom into a royal palace. Gauze or voile hangs can be a great addition to add a touch of elegance your room. If you have a 4 poster bed, voile curtains can create a real romantic paradise.
Adding brass lamps to the bedroom can also help add an aristocratic feel.
Install New Lighting
If there is something that can brightly polish your entire space is the light fixtures. You can add pendant lights or small chandeliers to give a sophisticated and refined look to your home. It can be advisable to add multiple types of lighting fixtures in your Kids room, or at least have a dimmer switch. Adding a kids neon name signscould be a great idea to add a personal touch and it can also double up as a low energy night light.
Don’t forget the Bathroom
If budget allows, you could retile the floors, larger tiles can give the room a bigger feel if space is limited. If budget is tight, a simple re-grout can have a striking impact. Painting the walls is a good way to freshen the place up, but make sure the walls are scrubbed first. Mildew and damp will not allow for a crisp even coverage.
Add storage. Bathrooms are often cluttered and untidy. A small unit should be enough to hide all the unsightly products that we own but never use!
Show some love to the Powder room
Usually, we overlook this room, because we think the space is super tiny and not appropriate for decor pieces. But this is not true, all you need is to show some love and attention to these nooks. You can go for light blush pink walls surrounded by artistic black and white prints or eclectic artwork. You could maybe even add a small plant or succulent to complement the space.
Simply Tidy Up
All spaces are vastly improved when they are tidy. House work may not be one of your favourite past time, but being a little more organised can make the clean-up efforts a lot easier.
You can install hooks, or invest intrendy coat and shoe racks to so you have a designated space to hang items. This will hopefully generate better habits of putting clothes, shoes and bags away, preventing unsightly pileups.
Colour Block the Walls
To add a graphic statement to your space, you can colour-block the walls. You can go for neutral tones or paint half of the wall with bold colours. For example – you can go for the combination of black and grey colour, this can help you to create an understated, but a unique home decor style statement.
Put the Collectibles on the Display

This can add a really personal touch to your home and allows you to enjoy your passion, rather than have whatever it is, locked in storage.
