Do you own your own home and you’re bored of the same old look when you enter the house? We don’t blame you! There’s always something you can do – from very small to very large jobs to help create a breath of fresh air in any space. With doing up your home, it doesn’t have to be a huge, all-encompassing change either. Something small can be just as effective at breathing fresh life into a space. Here are our top favourite small ways to make small changes with big impact.
Candles are a great way to bring warmth and zen energy to any space from living rooms, dens, home offices or bedrooms. Used with caution and care, candles can really make a space extra snuggly in the cold winter months as well as create an air of ambience that you will love time and again when you come home and light them up to help unwind and relax. Nordic house pillar candles are ideal for placing on coffee tables, low walls, centrepieces at the table or at bedsides to create the perfect warm feel for any room.
Art is a great way to inject life and breath into a room. Consider buying high quality prints from your favourite artists, or shop local and see what artists in and around your local area are offering in terms of great selections of unique, locally made art. From sculptures to paintings, digitally mastered designs to textile art, there’s all manner of great ways you can use art to bring a space to life. If you want more of the classics, consider purchasing prints of famous works by artists such as Monet, Rembrandt, Picasso or Van Gogh.
Getting old furniture reupholstered is a great way to help create a new vibe in a space. With so many patterns, textures and colours to choose from, reupholstering is a great way to revive old pieces – especially those old pieces you don’t want to part with. Many people choose to redo old pieces that they found at garage sales or the like, especially vintage pieces from the 70s and 80s. Not only that, but upholstery can help to prolong the life of a good couch, sofa bed or chair, lessening the amount of money you need to spend on replacing these things when they wear out.
Rugs and carpets are a great way to bring some warmth into your bedroom, living room and other rooms in your home. From authentic oriental or Persian rugs to your typical wild patterned rug from the likes of Ikea or your other local furniture store, rugs are great and add a lot of character to a space. Many people also love the feel of a great sheepskin rug, but if you’re feeling crafty why not try to make your own rag rug? They’re incredibly simple and you can easily find tutorials on Youtube.
So there you have a couple of great ways you can really bring some new life into an old, worn space without needing to invest tons of money or do much to the space in terms of work required. Enjoy your new home!
