  • Quick ways to refresh your decor

    July 22nd, 2022

    They say a change is as good as a rest, and this can be so true for the home. After a while, décor can feel tired and dated. You may be longing for a change or to add a sense of newness to your home. While your home may not need a total refurbishment, it can be the smallest refreshes that can make a significant difference and give your home a new appeal.

    If you’re looking for ways to refresh your décor on a budget, read on for top tips from the smallest tasks to more extensive projects that can help give your home a new lease of life.

    Declutter

    One of the easiest ways to transform your home is to have a good spring clean. Try to walk around your home as if it was your first time seeing it. Can you spot any lingering piles of clutter, any tables that have become accidental storage areas or ornaments, objects or artwork that no longer feel good in the space?

    Often we can get so used to the way our homes look that clutter just fades into the background. Trying to step into the shoes of a visitor can help you see your home differently and see things that need changing, that can be used in a different place or create a more logical layout.

    If you’re looking for a low-cost way to refresh your décor, a declutter is the first step. You may even be able to make money with this step by selling items you no longer want.

    Start with the floor

    Updating the floor can dramatically transform your space. It can make rooms feel bigger and more spacious. Alternatively, it can add character and make your home feel cosier. Updating the floor, especially when choosing cost-effective vinyl flooring, can be easy to install and a stress-free way to make a big update to your home without breaking the bank.

    Before renovating a floor, consider the long-term future. Now may be a great time to think about more efficient heating options such as underfloor heating. Pro-Tek offers some fantastic engineered vinyl floors compatible with electric underfloor heating.

    A floor renovation doesn’t have to be a big project. For example, Pro-Tek flooring uses a simple click-lock system which speeds up installation. The other benefit is that it comes with built-in underlay, so you can lay the floor directly onto subfloors.

    One flooring type used across the whole area can make it feel larger and add flow to your home in an open-plan space. A stylish flooring trend that can be used across the home, from kitchens to living rooms, is a herringbone design that will look contemporary and on-trend for many years to come.

    Update soft furnishings

    A really quick décor refresh can be to update your soft furnishing with a new colour. For example, if you have neutral flooring such as grey, white or wood effect and neutral walls, updating rugs, curtains and throws can be a fantastic way to transform your home without extensive work.

    If you have underfloor heating, you won’t need rugs. But if you don’t have underfloor heating, small rugs and runners can be a great way to update your home and create strategic zones – perhaps a reading corner or a home office. You may want to use different colours in different areas to create more zones in your home.

    Little splashes of colour across the home can really uplift the home. You may opt for dyeing your existing furnishings or having a collection of seasonal colour options that you can update throughout the year to refresh your home regularly and keep it in seasonal style.
