Lovely Little Features That Will Add A Lot To Your Home

by Hannah

You might be interested in improving and upgrading the style and design of your home. Often, when people do this, they consider significant and large changes. For instance, you might head down to the furniture store to spend a fortune on a brand new suite. But let’s save your budget and instead think about the smaller changes that you can make to your property that will bring a huge difference. You might be surprised at how well small changes can aesthetically improve your home and also accentuate key features. Are you ready to get started?

Decorate With Decals

Did you know that a decal could help sell your home for a higher price? Beliefs in the Law of Attraction are quite common these days so a positive wall decal could be seen as a positive sign. That might be enough to turn a maybe into a ‘yes I must have this home!’ Decals can be anything from images to words and phrases or quotes. It doesn’t matter which one you choose because they will all look chic and fabulous suitable for any room or area of your property.

One of the best things about decals is that they can beautifully bring to life a blank wall that was otherwise lacking both character and colour. As well as being a simple option, these decals are cheap too. It’s like buying modern art for your home on a shoestring, and we bet that’s an idea that appeals to a lot of people.

Decals are easy to apply too. Simply stick them to the wall, smoothing out any creases to ensure that they look picture perfect.

Changing The Light Fixtures

 

You may also want to think about switching the light fixtures in the rooms of your home. Light fixtures are key because they can change how light accentuates your room. They can alter the angle light hits a certain wall or area. They can even diminish or increase the level of light in a property. Remember, shadows will make a room look more cosy and compact while a brightly lit space will make it seem more open and grand.

That’s why overhead spotlights are common in any room where you want to give the impression of a higher amount of space like a small bathroom.

Light fixtures can also be bought in different styles to add contemporary decor to your property. They catch the eye too and are often one of the first features that people will notice when they walk inside your property.

Of course, if you’re thinking about lighting, you want to consider changing the bulbs in your home as well. You should be using LEDs as these provide a brighter, cleaner light ideal for modern decor.

Alternatively, you can also think about using coloured bulbs in your home. Smart coloured bulbs are perfect for giving each room in your home a completely fresh look at the flick of a switch. If this idea sounds appealing to you, make sure you research the latest smart bulbs and systems on the market. Don’t forget, these new bulbs can often be controlled directly from your home which is great fun.

Taps, Faucets And Handles

If you want one of the smallest features that can completely alter the look and style of your home, you need to make sure that you think about changing up the taps and faucets. You can do this in any washroom, bathroom or kitchen and immediately create a brand new effect. The right faucet can make a room look rustic or modern, vintage or fresh. Companies like Drench Bathrooms can provide you with brand news taps for the rooms in your home, guaranteed to impress. You might think that the bath or the sink is the main feature in your bathroom. While this might be true in terms of size, it’s the taps and the handles that draw the eye.

Speaking of handles, another option would be to replace the ones on cupboards and doors. By doing this, you can once again give a room or feature a completely new look to compliment a fresh design of your property. This saves you from buying brand new furniture or completing a full kitchen fit out. Currently, hard, industrial styles are in fashion with minimal designs that are bold and big.

Mirror, Mirror

We’ve already mentioned adding decals to the walls but what about mirrors. They aren’t just for checking your reflection. No, mirrors can be a key aesthetic feature for any area of your home. The benefit of a mirror is that it can give the illusion of additional space. Particularly, if it’s a full wall mirror. This is also why you might have noticed large wardrobes in new home bills where the entirely of each door is a reflective surface. It makes the room look a lot larger and also brings far more light and life to an area.

Smaller mirrors can also be used to add to a key centrepiece of a room. For instance, if you’re a fan of crystal ornaments or have your wine glasses on display, a mirror could really add to this type of setup.

Throws And Cushions

Are you tired with the old shades of a room? Your first instinct is probably to buy new furniture, but this is as expensive as it is unnecessary. Instead, you should make sure that you are buying throws and new cushions for your home. This is a smart move as it allows you to easily and quickly change up the colour scheme of a room without spending a fortune. This also means that you can change your room shades based on the seasons. For autumn you can opt for maroons and dark oranges while during the summer months you can choose butter yellows or any pastel colours you like. Simply cover your furniture in your new throws whenever you feel like a change.

We hope you see now that little features and accessories can have a massive difference on the look or feel of a room in your home.
