Get your house ready for summer with home makeover that will get you loving spending time at home again.
Out with the Old…
First things first: have a spring clean this summer. Having a declutter is one of the most cathartic ways to make your home feel more pleasant to spend time in. Clutter has a way of insinuating its way into the back of your mind, making you feel a little stressed out.
So you owe it to yourself to take a weight off your mind get your house looking beautiful again. Once you’ve had a good old fashioned clear out, it’s time to make way for some well-earned fresh new additions to your décor to breath a new lease of life into your home.
Ideal New Additions
It’s easy to make tasteful new additions to your home, and the living room is a great place to start as it’s so easy to accessorise, as well as being the main entertaining and living space in most homes.
Try out a new rug to inject a pop of colour into the room or find something hardwearing to withstand foot traffic. Flat woven rugs will maintain their shop-fresh look for much longer and are easy to clean – especially if you’ve got pets or young children prone to making a little mess.
Refresh your lampshade with something completely new; lampshades on your main room light make an excellent focal point to draw the eye. Perhaps something shiny or sparkly to catch your attention? Cox & Cox have a beautiful range that has lighting to suit any taste, as well as get in there with interior trends like copper, enamel and pendant lights.
House Plants & Flowers
Plants and flowers placed around the house are scientifically proven to make us feel happier and healthier; they naturally purify the air around us and make us feel closer to nature.
If you want to make an interior statement, why not accessorise your houseplants with some creative planters:
- Make a terrarium filled with easy-to-care-for plants like succulents and cacti – these are very trendy at the moment in interior design and will easily give your home a fresh new look.
- Haning planters are ideal for a bohemian look, and look lovely in conservatories, bedrooms, bathrooms and living rooms.
These ideas will get you well on your way to a revamped new look for your home, so out with the old and in with the new!
