Updating your New Home

Have you recently moved home and wanting to put your own stamp on it? Making your new home your own by updating fixtures and decorations is super easy to do and here are just a few ideas on where to start.


Tip 1 IconRepaint the Walls and Doors

This is a quick and easy fix to freshen up your new home and put your own stamp on it! Neutral shades are most popular now, as you can use them as a fantastic backdrop in which to feature a statement piece like a decorative mirror or canvas to colour coordinate with your soft furnishings. After repainting your doors then fitting modern internal door handles will give them the personal touch any new home should have.



Tip 2 IconRevamp the Floor

Consider how you can revamp your flooring. It may be that you already have a plush fitted carpet, but if you have inherited a 1970’s patterned carpet and want to modernise your home, it may be worth investing in some new flooring to compliment the overall finish you are hoping to achieve. If you have purchased a period property, you may even find that you have some original wooden flooring or tiles hiding beneath the carpets, these can be cleaned and polished with relative ease.


Tip 3 IconReplace Cupboard Handles

They say the kitchen is the ‘heart of the home’ and it is certainly the room in which most us spend our time. If your cabinets are a little outdated, but you do not want the cost and hassle of having your kitchen fully renovated, why not freshen the cupboard doors up with a lick of paint and add some modern kitchen cupboard handles to complete the look? You could even purchase new cupboard doors in a more modern style to complement the theme throughout the rest of the house.


Tip 4 IconBrighten your Bathroom

The bathroom is another room which when moving into a new home you will want to give your personal touch. But there is an easier way to renovate your bathroom without causing complete disruption to your home. A simple way to update the appearance of your bathroom is to re-paint and tile around your bathroom adding new units and storage, stainless steel towel rail and toilet roll holder to freshen up the look!



Tip 5 IconStorage Solutions

Installing storage and shelving units will help to keep your new home tidy, whilst give the illusion that your home is more spacious than it is. Fitting modular storage cubes either one on top of the other or side by side will produce stylish and versatile storage that will transform your living room, hallway or bedroom in no time at all.
