This time of the year is interesting. You tend to end up reflecting on the year that has gone, which helps you to spot where changes are needed. Plus, often, you feel more energised and interested in getting started on something new. This is a good thing because that feeling can kick-start positive change in your life.
For example, it can motivate you to do things like redecorate. Fortunately, doing this need not take long. If you follow some of the simple ideas below, you can get each room done in a day or even just a few hours.
Freshen up your artwork
The artwork you hang on your walls has a big impact on the way a room looks. So, why not order yourself some beautiful larger size canvas prints and use them to decorate key areas of your home?
They look fantastic and because they come in a range of sizes and finishes can be tailored to suit any style of home decor. The fact that you get to choose which image is used is helpful. This makes it easy for you to create the ambience you want. For a minimalist room, an understated picture of a wheat field with a bright red butterfly in it could be perfect. Whereas, for a home office a print featuring a motivational meme would probably be better. With canvas prints, you are only limited by your imagination.
Other easy wall decorating ideas
Of course, the great thing about prints is they do not take a lot of time and effort. It only takes 15 minutes to take a favourite family photo, send it off to the print firm and hang it on an existing hook when it arrives.
It is certainly far faster than wallpapering or re-painting a wall. The same is true of wall stickers and stencils. They take just a few minutes to find and order online. Once you get them, typically, they take between 20 minutes and an hour to apply.
New flooring ideas
Once you have freshened up your walls, take a look at your floors. Flooring is a big element of any room, so, if it is looking a bit ratty, the whole room will look worn and tired.
Therefore, it is always worth taking the time to freshen your floors up, every now and again. It could be as simple as buying a couple of rugs and painting out any scuff marks on the skirting. Or, you could lay a new floor.
Now, I know this task sounds daunting, but it really need not be a big job. As you can see, from this short video laminate flooring is easy to lay. This means that practically anyone can do it without the need to buy any specialist tools. Plus, it is one of the cheapest per sq meter flooring options.
As you can see freshening up your home need not be expensive or time- consuming. So, why not take a critical look at each room and put aside a morning to update each one. You will be pleased with the results and find your home a more pleasant place to be.
