It’s always great to live in a stylish living space, but it isn’t always possible to keep up with the passing trends. Not only does redecorating cost money, but it also can be very time-consuming and exhausting. This is made even tougher if you have kids at home to take care of, too! So, how do you maintain a stylish home without breaking the bank and redecorating every five minutes? Try these simple tips and see what works for you.
Neutral colours might sound dull, but they are timeless, which makes them perfect if you’re looking for a great, low-maintenance style for your home’s interiors. You can always add bursts of colour to your rooms through other decorative items such as houseplants, framed prints and photographs, rugs, and colourful vases and so on. These are all items that are also easy to replace if your tastes change or they go out of style.
Keep it Clean and Tidy
This is a must for the sake of your health and other members of the household, but it also plays an important role in maintaining a good-looking home. If a house is cluttered, it will feel much smaller than it is as well as have a messy appearance no matter how often you clean. This is why you need to make sure that you have good storage space at home to help you reduce clutter, as well as carry out annual decluttering with your spring cleaning. If you don’t have a lot of built-in storage areas at home, look at this advice on how to improve storage in your living room, and see how it can also apply to other areas of your home.
Make Small Adjustments
If you feel as though your home’s décor could use updating, consider making small changes rather than committing to a complete remodel. For example, can you replace old furniture with fresh, quality pieces to change the look of a room? Or perhaps replacing the flooring with new carpets or hardwood to improve the aesthetic? Even upgrading your lighting fixtures can be smaller adjustments to make rather than redecorating an entire room but will still make noticeable differences to improve the space.
Framed prints and photos were mentioned above, but there are other kinds of artwork that you can introduce to your living space for a more interesting edge. For example, an artistic wall clock or mirror that can be a statement piece in the room. Small sculptures to place on your coffee table or mantelpiece can also add a unique touch, or even having stained glass windows in places (which will improve your home’s curb appeal, too). Think outside the box when it comes to selecting art for your home for an effective and simple change to the aesthetics.
If you are growing tired of your home’s décor, but you haven’t got the budget to completely revamp a room, consider these simple ways that you can create a timelessly stylish living space that will never fail to impress your guests and make your home feel comfortable and fresh.
