Making your home look more attractive to others doesn’t have to mean redecorating the entire place! It doesn’t take a whole lot of effort to turn your dull and dreary home into something you can be proud of. Today, we’re going to focus on five little changes that you can make to achieve this. We’re also going to target different areas of the home with each one to help you maximise the potential of the entire house. None of these tips will break the bank, so don’t worry about that!
Let’s start with the first thing that everyone sees when they look at your home. You obviously want people to come past your home and admire it for how good it looks, right? That means you’ve got to have attractive features that entice people. A great way to do this is to add a wreath to your front door. Not just for Christmas anymore, there are many styles and colours around. You could even add additional features like extra flowers and welcome mats to provide a welcoming feeling. A website like worcesterwreath.com will come in useful in a situation like this. A coat of paint makes a big difference, and a new number for the door.
In the living room, it’s all about creating a cosy environment. Money aside, I’d tell you to buy something like a woodburner fireplace from fireplacesareus.co.uk. That won’t break the bank necessarily, but it isn’t cheap by any means. If you’re looking for something even lower on the price scale, think about changing your lighting. You can install a dimmer switch, wall lights, or change the colour of your lighting scheme entirely. That’ll change the entire feel of the room.
In the kitchen, it’s all about making the most of your space. The more space you’ve got; the better your kitchen will look. It’s also about colour schemes, too. Your kitchen will be the messiest place in the house due to all the cooking that goes on here. For that reason, I try and stay away from paint schemes that include lots of white. That’s why I’m going to suggest that you get the paint pots out and do a bit of redecorating – I definitely need to do that in mine. How about a kitchen cupboard makeover? You can get cupboard paint specifically and change the handles for an instant upgrade.
If you’re a shower fan then ditch that bath and install a walk in shower cubicle if money wasn’t an option. Unfortunately, that’s going to cost even more than a wood burning stove! In terms of the bathroom, I’m going to suggest that you start doing a bit of DIY work. If you don’t feel up to this, seek help from a website like http://quotationcheck.com/floor-tile-costs/. Replace that dull floor with a stylish set of tiles, and it’ll help to make the bathroom look that much better, again something I need to do. But blogging is so much more fun!
The garden is the easy part! Money isn’t an issue here; your time is. There’s no better way to make your garden stand out than to learn the ins and outs of gardening. You’ll be able to grow vegetables, plant all sorts of luxurious plants, and more. Maintaining it properly is crucial, so learning gardening extensively is important. If you don’t want to do this, spend a little money on a professional gardening service instead, or rope in the children for the chance to earn some pocket money.
