A Room By Room Guide For Updating Your Home ♥

Are you looking to spruce up your home? This may only involve making a few minor changes to each room in order to rejuvenate your house. More than likely, you will know exactly what changes you need to make, but you may need some inspiration to start. To help you create your dream home, you should read the following guide which will help you transform the most important rooms in your home.

Living room 
The living room is usually the first thing you come across when entering your home, therefore, it is important that it looks attractive to make a great first impression. To achieve this, you should make sure that your colour scheme feels inviting and not too harsh. For example, you should avoid using dark colours and instead opt for more neutral colours like cream, beige and brown. You can also add some hues of blue, which you could use on an accent wall or incorporate it into the minor details like paintings and ornaments.

Another important feature is your sofa, and if your current one is looking old fashioned or dishevelled, then you should definitely consider updating your couch by recovering it or purchasing a brand new one. When purchasing your sofa, you should make sure that you choose a hardwearing material such as hardwood and stain-resistant fabrics. This will ensure that it lasts longer, offering you a cost-effective and long-term addition to your living room.  

The kitchen is usually one of the most expensive rooms to decorate, but there are a number of ways you can transform your kitchen on a budget. To start off, you could consider changing up the smaller details like ornaments, as you may have too many which will need decluttering. If your kitchen is more minimal, you should consider adding a painting to your wall or using fruit bowls as a form of decoration.

If you have an open plan home, you should consider matching your kitchen to the rest of the furniture. The most popular way to do this is by using monochrome colours in your kitchen. For inspiration to help you achieve this, you should turn your attention to the luxury developments backed by property experts RW Invest, which feature contemporary kitchens to suit any home.  

Is your bedroom the place you spend most of your time? If so, you will want to make sure that the decor is appealing and comfortable. To start off, you may want to change up the colour scheme, and if your room feels dark, you may want to lighten it up with some pastel colours. This is a great way to reflect the spring season while also creating the appearance of space, which is perfect if you have a small bedroom.

You can create even more space by purchasing an ottoman bed, which doubles up as a storage unit. This means you can get rid of any drawers or cupboards which may be taking up any unnecessary space, making your bedroom appear more larger.  

Your bathroom is another place that you will spend a lot of your time; therefore, it is important that you make sure it looks great and everything is working as it should be. If you have a faulty tap or showerhead, you should get them fixed or replace them if need be. This will ensure that you’re getting the most out of your bathroom and also prevent water waste.

If you feel like your bathroom decor is too plain, you should consider adding some decorations which will enhance the space. This could include adding some ceiling lights and mirrors which will brighten up your bathroom and make even the smallest of bathrooms appear spacious.
