Flooring

 

The first part of your home that you might like to sort out is the flooring. If you have older, dirty carpets then it may be a nice idea to change these. It doesn’t take much to rip the flooring up and lay a new one. You can do this yourself or you can get a professional to help you.

Decide if you want to relay carpet down or change to hardwood flooring. There are pros and cons to both of these options, for instance carpet is warmer but can be a nightmare to clean. Whereas hardwood flooring is much easier to clean but can get incredibly cold in the winter months. This can be sorted with the addition of a rug though, so it isn’t so bad. 

 

Walls

 

If your walls are looking a bit drab then you can have some fun with these. You can do whatever you want to your walls, they are in fact yours until you sell your home. There are a few different options here, you can use wallpaper, paint, or wall art.

If you decide to use wallpaper or paint then you could create a feature wall. A feature wall is a wall that is different from all the others in that room. So you may decide to have paint on three of the walls and then a floral wallpaper design on the fourth wall. 

 

If you decide to use wall art then you can get some amazing pictures or quotes to put on the wall. You can even get murals of your favorite artists’ art, check out mosaic murals online for some ideas. 

 

Furnishings

 

Finally, the furnishings you have in your home can make it warm and cozy so it’s essential you get some. You can use them anywhere you want from the living room to the bedroom. Furnishings can transform an empty room and it’s important you get ones that match the décor. If you haven’t decorated yet but want to buy some then have an idea or what color scheme you are going to be using. 

 

You can invest in some amazing cushions and blankets to go on the sofa and chairs in the living room. This is great if you are having a relaxing evening watching a film or reading a book.

 

We hope you found this article helpful and it has given you lots of tips and tricks on how to transform your home into an amazing place to live.
