Every parent knows, home is a special place – somewhere you can relax, unwind and create precious moments with your children, wider family and friends.
However, with mouths to feed and a seemingly never ending list of chores to complete, it’s easy to get so caught up in the day-to-day running of your home that you end up neglecting the interior décor.
With that in mind, here are five home improvement projects you can try, to get it looking like the special place it is.
As obvious as it may seem – you just can’t underestimate the way a fresh coat of paint can transform a room within your home.
So consider changing up your colour scheme and enjoy as your rooms immediately look and feel brand new. Alternatively, simply repainting your walls the same colour works well too and will leave them looking refreshed and revitalised. Don’t just focus on your walls either, skirtings, ceilings and doors are often forgotten areas which could likely benefit from a lovely lick of paint.
If the thought of painting hasn’t got you fired up and excited, you could consider wallpapering instead. With so many patterns and prints to choose from, wallpaper can really bring a room to life.
It’s up to you whether you choose to wallpaper entire rooms, however, we recommend creating wallpaper feature walls in different rooms – they make a fabulous focal point that you won’t be able to take your eyes off.
Not sure where to start? This B&Q wallpapering video series will walk you through the process so you can paper like a pro.
A new lamp or light fitting is always a welcome addition to the home, allowing you to play with light levels and create a cosy ambiance – but what about light controls?
Updating your light switches and plug sockets is a simple yet effective way to improve your home aesthetic. If you’re looking for something stylish and distinct, Trendiswitch offer a contemporary product range, available in various colours to complement your current décor, and they’re easy to install too.
No home is complete unless it’s packed full of pictures of your family and friends. So for that wall in your home that you’ve never been quite sure what to do with, consider creating a dedicated photo wall. The right frames, arranged in the right way will look fantastic – so stock up and experiment until you’ve created the perfect gallery wall.
When it comes to home improvement, don’t just focus on your home interior – the outside is just as important. It’s the part of your home that everyone will be able to see, so it needs to look the part.
Rendering involves applying a coating to your home exterior – it creates a gorgeously smooth finish and offers robust protection. If you fancy getting your hands dirty and giving it a go – UK render supplier Direct Building Products stocks everything you’ll need.
We hope these ideas have been useful and we wish you well on your home improvement adventure.
