Simple Ways To Refresh Your Home For The New Year

They say a change is as good as a holiday, and after 2020 everyone could do with a bit of both.

We’ve all spent more time at home than many of us could have imagined and potentially even moved some furniture around two or three times just to keep things interesting -and give us something to do when the supermarkets ran out of flour for banana bread!

Now we have made it to the New Year, there is no better time to give your home the real refresh it deserves. Putting away the memories of 2020 and welcoming in the new experiences of 2021.

Here are some of our favourite ways to refresh your home.

Add A Rug

One of the easiest ways to give your home a facelift with next to no real effort is by switching out your rugs. A quick swap can completely change the look and feel of any room! At the moment, natural fibre rugs and vintage style Moroccan rugs are trending and will become chic centrepieces of your home. If you don’t want to change your rugs completely giving your rugs a deep clean can bring them back to life and make them look like new again! Because we look at them everyday, rugs can become warn and grimy without us noticing. There are lots of at home cleaning solutions you can try as well as professional services that will give you a fresh rug good enough to match the fresh new year!

Restyle your entry way

It’s the first thing you see when you go into your home. Whether it be a dedicated space or your living room, whatever your front door leads into, will set the tone for the rest of the house. These refreshes could be minor to major changes. Channelling your inner interior designer and getting creative with smaller things like plants, mirrors, pictures and books is a simple and cost effective way to give your entry a new feel. If you’re looking for something more dramatic, a coat of paint or some new lighting can really change things up!

The Bedroom

Thanks to working via Zoom, for a while their 6am starts were not something we needed to worry about. Replacing them, was a leisurely 8.30am wake up and an early night in bed watching Netflix -because what else was there to do?

New bedding will have you feeling like a new person and will be another cost effective way to completely change the look of your room. Traditional linens will give your look a fresh and cosy feel while bolder patterns will draw your eye and become centrepieces of the space. The best way to choose is to go with what suits your personality!

Show dusty curtains the door

Spending a lot of time in your house can make you notice things you normally might not. Like just how much dust your curtains are collecting… for example. Freshen up your home with plantation shutters and say goodbye to dusty curtains. Not only will plantation shutters give your home a fresh new look, but they will also help insulate your home, give you control of light and airflow and also increase your homes privacy.

If you’re interested in having plantation shutters in your home, give your local service team a call on 13 11 78 for a free in-home consultation!
