1. Give it a spring clean
A lick of paint can transform the way your living room looks. Choose a feature wall to add a dash of colour to or even funky patterned wallpaper.
3. Add fresh flowers
Fresh flowers work wonders. They’re easy on the eye and add a lovely aroma to a room. Plus, in line with the last point you can add some colour to a room with a bouquet of colourful flowers. Try something unusual like bird of paradise if you feel like being unique.
4. Get a throw
If your sofa is starting to look a little tired or old fashioned you can just place a pretty throw over it. You know what they say – out of sight out of mind.
5. Get arty
Why not add a few new pictures to the space? One key thing to remember is that they need to fit in with the overall design. Perhaps you could create your own using cuttings from the wallpaper you’ve used on your new feature wall or display your family photos in a creative way.
6. Get some mirrors
Mirrors really open up a space. They make a room look bigger instantly. You could even get a really fancy one and make it a focal point of the room.
7. Get new blinds or curtains
The curtains are the first thing that people will notice from outside and inside. Because you don’t want your neighbours nattering about your old-fashioned net curtains it might be worth getting a more fashionable set of blinds or curtains.
These tips are relatively simple and cheap to put into practice. So what are you waiting for? Just remember that everything you add needs to fit in with your overall theme or colour scheme.
