It’s easy to get bored with your surroundings, but not know how to change them up. What’s more, many alterations can be expensive and disruptive to your daily routine. Here are five small home improvements you can make to your home, which won’t break the bank and will give your space the refresh it deserves!
If you’ve got any budding artists in the family, why not devote one wall to becoming a feature wall? This could mean a bold, eye-catching wallpaper design, block colour paint or space to let imaginations run wild! Feature walls are great to add a pop of personality to a room, on a budget. Painted murals can be gorgeous to look at, and a chance to practice those art skills. Everyone can contribute in some way, making your wall a visual representation of your whole family. What’s more, you could even paint or paper over it as often as you like, allowing you to refresh and update it constantly.
Prints, wall hanging, portraits; there are endless options when it comes to updating your space with artwork. Supporting independent artists through platforms like Etsy is the perfect way to improve your home and help out a small business. You could choose a specific theme for a room, like the ocean in the bathroom, or florals in the living room, and over time your collection will grow! The artwork is also really mobile, so you can rearrange your pieces as often as you like, changing frames and locations to freshen up any room in your home.
Heating for Home Improvements
With the winter months moving in, it’s a great time to update your space with a stylish new radiator or heating system. They are available in a huge variety of shapes, sizes and colours, with places like Warmrooms providing a vast range and making it easy to find something you love. Something as simple as a new wall radiator can make a huge difference to a room, whilst also improving your comfort.
Another great way to update your home quickly and easily is colour coordination! Why not try ordering all your books by colour to add a little rainbow to your shelves? Super easy, cheap, and fun, this will also allow you to take stock of what you’ve got, maybe freeing up some space, or adding to your ‘to be read’ list. If you have a favourite colour, you could spend time finding accessories or appliances for a room in that colour. Imagine a deep purple kitchen, or a bright blue bathroom, with fittings and furnishings to match.
If you have lots of furniture that you don’t want or need to get rid of but want to update, why not try some upcycling? Another great task for the whole family, you can turn old pieces into something brand new, with books like Reinventing Ikea making it easy to the potential of an old chair or table. What’s more, the things you create will be completely unique to your home, making it a true representation of your family’s creativity and personality
