Give Your Home a Makeover This Summer

We've all been spending a lot more time indoors as of late due to the pandemic and lockdown restrictions and so it's perhaps safe to say that we've all become a little tired of staring at the same four walls. You may have spent many days throughout lockdown vowing to change the decor of your rooms to give your home that much needed refresh. Luckily there are ways to make your home more inviting by brightening, lifting and adding a pop of character to each room of your house and what's more, this can be done on a budget. Just a few tweaks here and there and your home will look and feel beautiful! 

Cushions, throws and rugs
Cushions, throws and rugs can instantly add a pop of colour to your home. In spring and summer add bright, light and sunny colours and in autumn and winter you can opt for oranges, reds, browns and golds. 

Fresh flowers can make a room look instantly brighter and more beautiful. Studies have shown that flowers can also  decrease stress and so introducing flowers to a room will certainly have a positive impact on your wellbeing. Their natural beauty alone can be enough to bring a smile to your face and they can be a fantastic feature within your home, reflecting your individual style. You can change them frequently, each time bringing something new and unique to the style of your home. Treat yourself to a fortnightly subscription delivery of fresh flowers or you could even source some gorgeous artificial flowers to display in your home.

A fresh coat of paint
I love a freshly painted room, it's amazing how much it can transform a room. Adding a lighter shade to your walls instantly brightens, refreshes and opens up the room. Perhaps you don't have the time to redecorate the whole room, if so, you could consider a statement wall to add a pop of colour and style to it.

Change the radiators
Radiators can often be overlooked in your room but actually updating them, or considering a different style can have a huge impact on your room. They are available in a range of different colours, shapes and sizes and can add a stylish statement to your rooms. Updating your radiators to a slimmer design can even open up your room, enabling you to save space in it. Trade Radiators have a range of traditional or contemporary radiators and heated towel rails to help you add a pop of personality to your rooms.


Adding prints and paintings
If you're looking to add some character, style and individuality to your home, one way is to consider adding some art to the walls. Nothing injects your personality into your home quite as well as displaying your favourite photographs, artwork and prints. They can remind you of happy and treasured moments in time and can invite feelings of joy.
