December 6, 2018

It doesn't matter whether you’re looking for a super quick pick me up or whether you want to create a significant difference in your home; the 8 awesome ideas here can help you to transform your home and make it a happier place to be. Take a look and see what you can use!

1) Use Optical Illusions To Make A Room Appear Larger
If you have a small room that you want to transform, there are many optical illusions that you can try to make it appear larger. For example, pulling your furniture away from the wall is a clever hack that can instantly stop a room from feeling claustrophobic and give the illusion of more space. Painting a room in lighter, soft colors can also make it look bigger.

2) Reflect Light Using Mirrors
Adding mirrors to your space is a great way to reflect light around the room, making it feel more spacious and open. Not only that, adding an ornate mirror can give the feeling of grandeur to a room.

3) Let In More Natural Light 
Make it your mission to let more natural light into your home. It’ll make it a healthier, more productive place to be, and again, this is something that can help it to feel larger. If you don’t need new windows or window dressings, we recommend these sliding patio doors or something similar. They can look amazing and help to bring more light into your home in an instant.

4) Have Some Fun Mixing Things Up
Don’t be afraid to have fun and mix a few things up with your decor. You can mix up patterns and textures, mix up old and new, and expensive and inexpensive to create an eclectic look that is all your own. Doing this will also help you to bring in more warmth and texture, creating a cosier feel in your space.

5) Go Green
Become a greener household by adding plants to your living space. You should have them in every room, mixing both small and large to create an eclectic look while adding texture at the same time. Plants don’t cost much and they are a fantastic way to accessorize your space with color and texture. You can even buy realistic looking fake plants these days to save you having to maintain them - although you won’t get the same air clearing benefits as you would if they were real. Many types of plants can clean household air and balance humidity. They can also absorb pollutants and remove harmful gases from the air. Every home, no matter the style or decor, should incorporate plants!

6) Use Area Rugs to Help Soften Hardwood Floors
Hardwood floors can look amazing and be easier to clean than carpet, but they can also give a space a colder feel if you’re not careful. Throw rugs give warmth and can add great texture, color and personality to your living space. You could even layer up your rugs, using various patterns and fabrics together to show your character if you’re brave enough. You have endless options and can really make a room your own by doing this!

7) Create A Feature Wall
A feature wall can instantly perk up your interior, and is perfect for most rooms in your home, whether you’re looking to work on your living room or your bedroom. You could create your feature wall using paint or wallpaper, depending on what you prefer. You could also potentially create a gallery wall by using different pictures and artwork that you like. You can create a uniformed look with frames and images of similar sizes, or you can do something more eclectic by playing around with the placement and sizing and seeing what you like the look of best.
Top tip: before you start making holes in your wall, use cardboard or tape in similar shapes to see what your pictures will look like.

8) Get Vigilant With Clutter 
Clutter does nothing for a space and can actually make a great space look messy and disorganized. Make sure you get vigilant with clutter and get rid of it before it becomes too big of a task to handle. For example, when you receive a letter, decide what to do with it there and then so you don’t end up putting it down and having to decide later on. You also want to make sure that you haven’t got lots of small ornaments and knick-knacks creating visual clutter in your space.
