Maintaining a beautiful home is an ongoing process. Just when you’ve fixed one thing, another thing breaks or looks a little worn. If your home is looking a little unkempt, you might want to completely transform your interior and exterior design.
Thankfully, improving your home doesn’t need to break the bank, as there are some affordable ways to spruce up your space. Here are six ways to revamp your home this summer.
- Declutter Your Home from Top to Bottom
Before you do anything, you must declutter your home and garden from top to bottom. This means saying goodbye to unwanted or unused items, and organizing the items you want to keep. Everything in the home should have its place. Decluttering your rooms can also help to declutter your mind, so you’ll feel happier and more relaxed inside your home.
- Deep Clean Your Home So it Looks as Good as New
Once you have removed unwanted items from your home, the next step must be to deep clean every room. When was the last time you washed your walls, cleaned your carpet, or freshened up your sofa? Make the time to clean every nook and cranny in your home, so it both looks and feels fresh.
- Add Different Types of Lighting
The lighting you choose will have a big impact on your home’s interior design and atmosphere. For example, a soft bedside light can create a cozy atmosphere before bed, while skylights can inexpensively increase the amount of light within a room. However, if you want to add vibrancy and elegance to your outdoor space, hang a stylish, sophisticated chandelier, which will become a focal point in your interior design.
- Don’t Neglect Your Garden
While your interior design is important, you shouldn’t neglect your exterior, especially during summer. Make the most of the space by creating a beautiful garden that’s perfect for alfresco dining, BBQs, and outdoor parties.
Improve your garden by maintaining a beautiful lawn, trimming overgrown hedges, and potting colorful plants. You could also transform an old pond with some submersible pond lights, which will make it a focal feature once the sun goes down.
- Invest in Colorful Works of Art
If you want to add more color, character, and intrigue into your interior design, you should hang new works of art. The artwork can refresh a tired looking room, which can update your décor. If you’re happy with your current works of art, you could always update your frames to give your home a modern style.
- Update Your Furniture
A worn sofa or scratched table will only tarnish your interior design. To create a beautiful space that makes you happy to be home, you should either invest in new pieces or upcycle your current furniture. For example, chalk paint can add both color and character to an old chest of drawers or table, or you could reupholster an armchair or sofa to create a brand-new design.
