Have you been walking into your home thinking it could do with a bit of an update? You are not alone, this happens to a lot of us. Once you have lived in a place for a long time, you can find yourself getting into a routine, keeping the feel of the room the same – luckily, this can be easily changed.
There are many ways to add a touch of style and class to your home. You can invest in some modern-looking plants to add an extra dynamic to the room, ensure you spend some time removing any clutter, and accessorizing your surfaces is a must. If you haven’t cleaned your floors in a while (we mean deep cleaning), just like repainting, this can also bring a new shine to the room. If you have had any damage done due to bad weather, emergency flood cleaning may be something you want to turn to if you can’t fix the damage done yourself.
Below are three different ways to add a touch of style and class to your home.
Accessorizing your surfaces
Have you ever spent some time accessorizing your surfaces? When you look at them, do they seem nicely dressed up or do they look bare? Photo frames, candle gift sets (this way you get multiple candles to place around your home), plants, crystals, books, ornaments are all great ways to accessorize your surfaces with. By combining them, you can add different feels to the rooms they are in. It’s always a good idea to revisit your surfaces every 4-5 months, switching things up to keep them fresh and modern. This is a very quick way to update your living room.
Personality is key
Add a hint of your own personality when adding a touch of style and class to your home. This will make your house feel more like a home and that it’s your own space instead of being someone else’s. Decorate it with the colors you enjoy and personalize it with photos of you and your loved ones. If there are objects that you have collected over the years that represent you as a person, there is no shame in having these on display – Medals and awards often look nice in a home if presented nicely.
Consider your choices
Don’t just rush into buying something because at that moment you think it will look good – as it may not – when shopping spend a moment to consider your choices and ensure they match the feel and style of your home. Take a photo of the items you want to buy and then view them in your home, where you think they will go. This will help you visualize if it will work or not. Search different interior blogs for some inspiration as often they will share images to help inspire you.
