After spending so much time indoors, some of us are starting to get bored with seeing the same décor and are looking for easy ways to add a pop of colour or something to brighten the space. Without doing a complete overhaul of your home, there are things you can focus on that will be enough to completely change the look and feel of a room.
Upgrade Your Radiators
Radiators might not be the first thing you think about when it comes to decorating, but the fact is, they are part of your space and are often large enough to catch the eye. If your radiators have seen better days or you feel like they are not adding anything to your décor, maybe it’s time to think about an upgrade.
Nowadays, you can find many styles, from a traditional look to a sleek design, so you’re sure to find something that will suit your rooms. If white radiators can suit any space, you can create a more eye-catching feature by choosing black, anthracite or a bolder colour like copper. Some sites like Trade Radiators stock a large selection of colours, styles and sizes, so you can find just what you are looking for.
Create an accent wall
A lick of paint is an easy way to completely change the look of a room without having to break the piggy bank. If repainting a whole room doesn’t sound appealing to you, why not create an accent wall by painting one wall in a different colour? If your walls are light, choose a dark colour for your wall, and vice-versa, to create contrast that will catch the eye.
Typically, the accent wall will be one that has a remarkable feature, for example if you have a fireplace, but truly it can be any wall that you think will work best, whether that’s where your windows are or the wall facing the windows. This will also depend on the colour you have chosen, as lighter colours will reflect the light, so you can also use an accent wall to give more depth or spaciousness to your room.
Minimise your furniture
If you feel like your interior is crowded, take some time to rethink your furniture and how it’s laid out. Chances are, your furniture has been the way it is for a while that you don’t even think about it anymore, but sometimes switching things up will make a room feel completely different. You may even be able to make better use of your space by rethinking where to place furniture. Try having a plan on paper (up to scale) and see if another layout could work.
While there’s nothing wrong with having a lot of furniture, sometimes it can make the room feel smaller. Minimising how much furniture you have can instantly make a space brighter. This can mean removing a side table or changing a large coffee table for a more compact design. If you have a smaller room, you can opt for designs that have specifically been thought up for those with limited space.
We hope that these ideas have inspired you to have a new outlook on your interior so that you can make small changes with a big impact! Remember that you can always rely on plants or wall art to liven up a room. Find more inspiration in the lifestyle category.
