With the New Year upon us and the chaos of Christmas and mince pies safely left behind, it’s time to embark on some new home improvement projects. Why not spruce up some of your rooms with a couple of simple changes? Some new blinds or a lick of paint can make the world of difference in transforming your home. Homestyle Blinds and Shutters, the made-to-measure and bespoke service in Kent, delves into ways to refresh your home and interiors in 2020.  

Rearrange the furniture 

There is definitely something to be said for re-organising your furniture to make your space more functional. This cost-effective improvement is great for switching things up to give your interiors a fresh new look, without spending any money. If you have a small room, placing furniture closer to the wall rather than out in the middle of the room will make the space seem larger. Another reason to move furniture around is to see what pieces need to go, the longer you live somewhere the more you collect! The armchair you couldn’t live without could now be taking up way too much space.  

Give the house a lick of paint 

A lick of paint can go a long way when it comes to refreshing the home, this easy and cost-effective change can give a home a much-needed facelift! If you have a room that does not get a lot of natural light, lighten it up with some neutral light colours like white or cream. Alternatively, if you have a room that needs a bit of a wow factor then use a colourful feature wall to transform your space. 

Add a statement piece 

It’s easy for all homes to look a bit drab and tired after the vibrancy of Christmas. Bring new life to your rooms by adding statement pieces. The possibilities are endless when it comes to adding statement pieces, for example, by adding a mirror you can really open up a room, whilst making the room look bigger. Another easy change is adding brightly coloured or patterned blinds, this splash of colour can be a great update to a room with neutral tones. Another easy way to add a statement is to create a gallery wall, displaying a collection of illustrations, art or photographs is a great way of injecting personality into your home.  

Install new shutters or blinds 

They say windows really are the eyes to your home and the way you dress them can make or break a room. More often than not, shutters can be overlooked as a luxury item, but shutters have the ability to dress up any room and to easily control light and privacy. Blinds can also be a great option, neutral-toned blinds can help more light enter the room, whilst bold prints can liven up a space.
