If you’re bored of your bedroom, sick of your sofas and fed up with your flooring, you might be in need of a home revamp. Here are some simple design tips that should help you to transform your property.
Create The Perfect Sleeping Space
Given that we spend a third of our lives sleeping, a great place to start your overhaul is your bedroom. One way to breathe new life into this area is to refresh your color scheme. Be careful which hues you opt for though. Research shows that the color of our boudoirs can impact on our ability to nod off at night. For example, a study by the hotel chain Travelodge suggested that blue is the best hue when it comes to promoting restful sleep, followed by certain shades of yellow and green. At the other end of the scale, purple, brown and gray were identified as the colors least conducive to a sound night’s slumber.
Another top design tip is to clear any clutter. Piles of clothes, books and cosmetics can spoil the look of any bedroom. If you don’t already have one, consider incorporating a good sized chest of drawers into your bedroom. Stuck for ideas? The Tesco website is a good place to start your search. Meanwhile, if you’re short on square footage, take advantage of space saving solutions like storage beds and ottomans.
Invest in statement furnishings
You might not want to replace all the furnishings in your home, but by investing in a few new statement pieces, you can completely transform the look and feel of your rooms. Great examples include luxurious roll top baths, stylish corner sofas, designer dining tables and eye-catching sleigh beds.
Enhance your flooring
Then there’s your flooring to think about. Replacing old, stained carpets or chipped tiles, or sanding and varnishing worn out wooden floors can do wonders to revive your rooms. If you don’t want the hassle or expense of this though, there’s always the option of buying some attractive new rugs to conceal any imperfections.
By following tips like these, you should succeed in whipping your home into shape in no time.
