Lockdown has hit us hard, away from our family and friends and with no work to do, we have been struggling for ideas to keep ourselves busy. As with many people I’ve spoken to, we’ve turned to making our house a little more homely during this time. From new lamps to solid wood flooring, there are plenty of ways to refresh your home right now.
Change up that colour scheme
A simple change that sure packs a punch! We’ve had the same colour scheme for about 5 years now and while I love black and grey, it has gotten a little ‘meh’. Changing up your colour scheme from grey tones to something a little more brighter can make a huge difference. Imagine a magenta sofa throw with matching lamps at each side, a new eye catching picture for the wall and of course a rug to match too. Making this simple colour switch can make a huge difference in the feel of your room.
Right now i’m back and forth between magenta and aqua, both will look stunning and bring some great focus points to the room.
Installing new flooring
I don’t know about you, but it’s really time for us to get new flooring! The carpet is so old and worn and to be honest it feels a little outdated to. With 2 kids under 10 keeping a new carpet fresh is a huge concern of mine, it doesn’t matter how many times you say ‘keep the food out of the living room’ they still manage to bring it in and drop it on the carpet!
So with that in mind, this time i’m looking at Solid Wood Flooring, it’s easy to clean and looks amazing too. Just 5 minutes of looking through pictures on the website had me sold!
Right now i’m looking at beautiful oak flooring with a lacquered finish and of course tongue and groove for fitting. We are not huge on DIY, but with a bit of research this shouldn’t be too hard for us to fit!
A spring clean
Spring is almost over, but it’s never too late to start a spring clean. My plan is to go through our storage boxes and get rid of anything we don’t need. Once I’ve had a good declutter I’m going to hire a cleaner to give a really great deep clean. There is something about that awesome feeling you get when you step into your house and it’s sparkling!
Those are my top 3 ways to give your home a refresh right now, choose one or do all 3, you are sure to feel great! What ideas do you have?
