You would be surprised how a fresh lick of paint can transform a room.

It can freshen it up, restore colours, and make the room look as good as the day you moved in. You could even try a different colour and see if it would suit the room, or why not try a wall of wallpaper instead? It might mean making a bit of effort to change the colour of the room, and might take a bit of time to for it to dry, and moving furniture around, but it would be well worth it. A little change like painting your walls freshens them up and makes a big difference.

Add Some Houseplants

Adding plants can give a room a bit of life, quite literally. If you want to care for something but don’t want to commit to a pet, this is also a great alternative. Having plants in your room can add some difference in the room too, and disrupt all the linear lines created by the furniture. A plant will also produce oxygen too, so will add some air to your home. Try getting a cactus, if you want something easy and low key. Putting a cactus on your desk doesn’t take up much room either, unlike many other kinds of houseplants. Getting a little plant can bring some life to your home, which makes all the difference to living there.

Replace Your Curtains or Blinds

Having blackout blinds can be really great in your bedroom, especially if you sleep better in the dark. This can be a useful addition to any home and a very useful one as well. If this isn’t quite your thing, ready-made curtains or blinds can make all the difference to your rooms as well. If you live on a busy road, blinds can be a great way to keep your privacy, while still letting the light pour in as well. Curtains, especially, can fade over time and so it is best to replace them more regularly then blinds. Thinking about how your home lets in light, and utilising this, can make all the difference to how your home looks and feels.

Try changing up the way your home lets in light, and you can have a far more positive feeling an open looking space.

Rugs

This a great way to make your home cosier, and is easy to introduce into your home. Unlike carpets, you don’t need to install these, just throw them down and you’re done. In the colder months, this can also be fantastic because it can keep your home warmer, and your feet feeling warm as well. Next to the bed, or in front of the sofa are great places to put rugs. If you have plain carpets that have a neutral colour, you can always get some jazzy coloured rugs to give some colour to your home. Rugs are a great way to add colour and texture to a room, and practical too. Have a look at your local store to find one for your home today.

Get Organised

Organising your home can make it look completely different. This can give you more space to do new things with, and make it generally look and feel better. The peace of mind that can come from an organised home is priceless as well. When doing your spring cleaning, think about making your home more organised so it is easier to live in throughout the year. This might involve moving some things up to the attic that you don’t need, organising the kitchen cupboards, or getting rid of old cans or spices from the kitchen. Investing in boxes and drawers to store your things in as well, is a great way to keep your home tidy. Nothing is worse than looking for something and not being able to find it, so this is a great way to avoid that. Organising your home is a small change, but can make a huge difference to your daily life.
