Give your home a new look for 2017


The New Year is a time for setting goals in life.  In previous years you may have tried to transform yourself in body and mind, so this year why not set your sights on changing your home instead?

But don’t become overwhelmed with the prospect of a complete revamp.  Set yourself a realistic target and you are more likely to achieve what you want.  Maybe you just want to change one room, or perhaps you want to make small changes throughout your home, whichever way you decide to do it there’s no better time than the post-Christmas sales to spruce up your home without breaking the bank.

Here are 3 interior design ideas to quickly transform any room of your home in 2017…

Update your home accessories

It’s the bits and bobs that give a room its character and buying new accessories can change the entire style of a space. Replacing vases, curtains, cushions, rugs and ornaments is a thrifty way to change the emphasis of a colour scheme or to move from traditional styling to a funkier feel. Easy, effective and affordable.

Simply swapping the handles of cupboards, cabinets and drawers can make your existing furniture unrecognisable and give a fantastic style update without having to pay the hefty price tag that comes with refurnishing your home.

Change your flooring

The way to make the biggest impact on the decor of any room in one fell swoop is by updating the flooring. Whether you go from a carpet to laminate, from plain vinyl to engineered wood or any other combination you can imagine, altering the flooring in your home is one of the most effective changes you can make in any room makeover.

Change the colour scheme of your interior design

Refresh a room with your favourite colour, change with the trends or go all out and paint it a shade you never thought you’d be bold enough to try. As long as the colour still complements your furniture and furnishings so you don’t have to update those too, this is a economical way to make a huge impact to your home interior. Or again, use flooring to make the change and  inject some colour.  Plain walls with a bright carpet works beautifully.
