Five more ways to refresh your interior
Want to know what trends are inspiring interior designers and how to do them yourself in a way that won’t cost a lot? Here are five ways you could be refreshing your interior without splashing big bucks.
Paint a statement
A statement colour paint is a great way to brighten up the look of your interior, and it doesn’t just need to be used on walls. A key piece of furniture painted a contrasting colour to the rest of the furnishings in your living room is a great contemporary design choice. Painting the doors and woodwork in a darker shade can make any room feel more grand and imposing.
According to The Independent, Pinterest searches show that 2019 is the year to embrace bold yellow as the next paint colour for your walls.
Carpets and rugs
Flooring is an essential way to add comfort and character to your spaces. Second-hand rugs come with bags of history and personality and could be freshened up by carpet cleaners Cheltenham. Many spaces can be spruced up with the simple addition of rugs; they don’t have to be used as a last-ditch attempt to refresh your room by covering up stains on your carpet. Hiring carpet cleaners Cheltenham can transform the look of any room in your home by making your carpets appear brighter and feel like new.
Change the style of your kitchen with new crockery. Add curtains to windows you’ve previously only had blinds on. Buy some patterned towels to use in the bathroom. By choosing new accessories, you can change the look of every room in your home.
Updating the backsplashes with geometric patterned tiles is one way to add a graphic sense of style to your kitchen, but tearing out old tiles and putting in new ones isn’t the only way to transform your tiling. Patterns can be painted onto old tiles with primers and varnishes, making any new colours you want to paint last a long time.
Create a quiet space
Your mental health is vital, and turning an unused corner of any room into a quiet space for relaxation and practicing mindfulness can be done easily by bringing in a comfortable chair, throwing a soft blanket over it, and setting a cosy atmosphere with lighting.
