Quick Tips to Freshen Your Decor
Often we would love to completely redesign our home and decorate it completely from scratch, however with our busy schedules the reality of this is usually different. Life gets in the way and it can be difficult to find the time to decorate.
Perhaps you have found yourself a free Saturday afternoon and you’ve decided now is the right time to devote a few hours to fixing up your home. Or what if your relatives are coming for a last minute visit and you want to spruce up your home before they arrive? This is why we’ve curated the following tips below to help anyone on a tight schedule to quickly redecorate their home!
Find Inspiration Online
When it comes to decorating, there is no need to think of an entirely new concept from scratch yourself, there are plenty of online resources to inspire you. Without trekking first to a furniture store, and then to a bathroom store and so on, it is simple enough to find inspiration online. To make it even easier, if you already have an idea of the theme or colour palette ten a quick search through Pinterest or other inspiration websites will bring up plenty of tailored results.
For example, there are abundant picture boards on Pinterest of bathrooms with all sorts of colour palettes. Once you have found the palette that you like you’ll be able to quickly find lots of ideas for how to decorate your bathroom and what items to fit it with, such as matching towels, storage and soap dispensers to name a few.
Once you have found what you’re looking for online then having this clear goal in mind will make shopping for what you need that much faster. Create a shopping list from your online research so that you know exactly what you want to purchase and are far less likely to get distracted or buy unnecessary items. Leader Stores online store offers a range of delivery options, including click and collect and fast home delivery to reduce waiting times.
Do It Yourself
Is your furniture really making the best use of the space? Moving your furniture around can really open up your home and make a room look completely redone without spending a penny. Here are some ideas to try for yourself:
- Moving your mirrors so that they are facing windows can give the illusion of more space.
- Consider floating your sofa away from the wall and move your armchairs in to make your living room together feel more welcoming and cosy.
- Add books onto your coffee table and rearrange your plants to add more focal points in your living spaces.
- Artfully throw a few blankets and cushions on the sofa, chairs and your bed to add a splash of colour and texture to a room.
