As we head into the winter, we are spending more and more time at home. This means that we start to notice all the niggly bits that we might have not noticed during the summer when we were out and about all the time. This can leave you wanting to do up your home and upgrade it to make it a nicer space to be in. It could be that you just want this to be done for your own personal benefit, or perhaps you are moving house. No matter the reason, we have put together some top tips below to upgrade your home and have it looking fantastic in no time at all.
Invest in some new flooring
You would be surprised at just how much of a difference flooring can make to both the look and feel of your home. You want to ensure it is cosy, welcoming and also stylish, fitting in with your overall decor scheme. There are a host of floor types that you can opt for, including hardwood flooring that is perfect for a more contemporary space, or vinyl flooring Quick-step that is perfect for a kitchen space. Be sure to add in touches such as rugs that can instantly make a wood floor feel more cosy.
Jazz it up with some accessories
Accessories, while seemingly a small part of your house decoration process, can be the main element that ties everything together. There are a host of accessories out there on the market, including candles, throws for your sofa, ornaments and books. Whether you decide to put up a shelf on the wall, get a unit for your hallway or living room, or invest in a book shelf the choice is yours. Plants are also a brilliant way to add in splashes of colour and inject some life into the space - just don’t forget to water them regularly!
Switch up your lighting
Lighting is a great way to upgrade your home and can be effective in many ways. A lot of people don’t like big lights overhead, so why not invest in a few different lamps that you can scatter around the place? Try to mix up both tall and short lamps as they can add a feature to the room, while also creating a cosy glow. If you don’t have the space for lamps, why not instead opt to add dimmer switches to your lights that are already in your home? Dimmer switches mean you can control the light levels in your room - ideal for those cosy winter nights in. It’s advisable to get a professional to change up the switches. You could also look at getting smart bulbs for your home which you can control via Alexa or Google Home, both with your voice or your mobile devices.
These are just a few simple ways that you can upgrade your home and make it feel cosier and more welcoming in no time at all. What are some top tips you like to do to upgrade your home? Let us know in the comments we would love to hear from you.
