Sometimes, you just feel like you need a change in life be it at home, in your wardrobe or what you’re doing with your time, are you with me ladies? That can be true in many areas of your life, but most notably you will often find that you feel it when it comes to your own home. The home is a hugely important part of our daily lives – the happier we are with that part of things, the more likely we are to be happy with life generally. If you are feeling like your home could do with some kind of change, you might well be at a loss as to what kind of change it might be that you would want. The truth is that there are many ways you can approach this, and it is not the kind of thing that you can easily work out much of the time. But in order to try and make it a little simpler and easier, we have put together a short list of some of the things you might want to think about doing in order to change up your home today. As long as you are considering these, you should find that you are able to improve your home to no end.
REARRANGE THE LIVING ROOM
One of the main areas of the home, and one which will generally receive a lot of scrutiny, is the living room. You probably spend a good balance of your time at home here, and it is usually where much of the communal activity will take place with other people in your family and friends and so on. As such, the importance of the living room cannot be denied. It is for this reason that it is one part of the home which you can always look to if you are hoping to change up your home dramatically. What’s more, it doesn’t necessarily need to take much in order to do this. It might just be a case of rearranging the furniture in the living room, and seeing whether there is another way of having everything laid out which could be a little better. If you look at this guide to rearranging your living room, you will see that there are countless approaches you can take towards this. No matter which you end up doing, you should find that you can improve your home greatly by merely doing this.
REPAINT THE HALLWAY
Repainting is always something that you have available to you – it is fast, it’s easy, and it is unlikely to cost you too much. For that reason, it’s certainly the kind of thing that you can always think about if you want a sudden and dramatic change in your home. The truth is that there are plenty of ways in which you can hope to approach this too, and the major choice that you have here, of course, is what colour you are going to go for. That is important, as it will determine the feeling of the entire house, especially if it is the hallway you are really going to paint. Painting the hallway will make a huge difference to the home, and it’s definitely something that you will need to think about if you are going to try and change things up some time soon. Choose a colour you love and get painting – or you could even get someone in to paint it for you, if you want to ensure that it is as professional as possible.
RETILE THE BATHROOM
It’s no surprise to anyone that the bathroom is another important part of the home. Even though you technically don’t spend all that much time there, it is somewhere that tends to have an effect on the rest of the home, and that is why it’s worth thinking about here if you are hoping to change up your home in some way. One of the most common things that a bathroom needs doing repeatedly is the tiling. You might find that it has become mouldy, or that it is cracked and old and stained. Retiling will make a surprising difference to your bathroom as a whole, and what’s more, it’s the kind of thing you can do in a day. If you are keen to retile your bathroom, make sure that you choose tiles which are distinct from the old ones, so that you can really hope to make a more dramatic change to the home.
With these simple changes, you should find that you are able to improve your home in no time at all. They are always available to you, and they are easy to do for anyone.
I used to love rearranging rooms when I was in my flat as it can make such a difference to the room. This is something I can’t wait to do when we move x
My hallway is in desperate need of re-doing, it needs a good lick of paint, my boys are nightmares for putting their dirty hands all up the walls!
Fab post, this! I’ve just moved house, so everything is a blank canvas for me. I’ve been very busy painting, decorating and decluttering.
I love these tips, I also get the urge to change things up and am currently debating whether to re-paint my whole flat! x
We moved the living room around about six months ago and I’m still not convinced I like it this way. Maybe time for another shuffle
These sound such simple but effective ways to change your home. I always like re-arranging my living room or buying a few new accessories for it. It really freshens things up. And I would LOVE to retile our bathroom. Hugs Lucy xxxx
Rearrange the furniture always makes it look like you have a brand new room. I have also been wanting to decorate my hallway and stairs. Will get a start on in when the kids are back at schoo.
Rearranging the living room can make such a big difference to the space! We did this recently
Yep I am with you, sometimes I sit in my home and I think I am so bloody bored looking at the same walls and colours etc! I like to change up our cushions, pictures and accessories every now and again too keep everything looking fresh and to change things up a bit!
