Now that the New Year is upon us, a lot of us are taking down decorations and realising that the house needs a refresh. Freshening up the home can be a great way to ring in the new year and make it feel brand new, and there are always lots of ways to add character and fun back into the space after Christmas. Here are just a few of the simple DIY tasks you can think about doing this weekend which will make the home feel brand new and fresh in time for January.
Mount your TV
If you still have your TV sat in the corner of your living room on a little stand, it might be time to start thinking about mounting it on the wall to save some space and make the room feel more modern. Mounting your TV on the wall is a task which will only take you 10 minutes or so and it can be something which frees up your TV stand to be used as something else. Before you start make sure you buy a good wall bracket which can be moved, as well as nails, screws and fixings at Tradefixdirect.com. You’ll have a brand new looking room in no time and the TV will be at a much better angle for everyone to enjoy.
Hang some art
If you have a blank wall which seems to be wasted in your home, a simple way to remedy this is to hang some artwork. Artwork can be a great way to add depth to your interior design and it will allow you to add some personality and character to your space. For example, you can think about looking for a large print of a movie poster you love, look at a stunning landscape or make a collage of family photos to celebrate. Hanging a picture only takes 2 minutes and it will change the whole dynamic of the room.
Refresh your lighting
Lighting will always have a big impact on your home and when it comes to making a positive change, the lighting is key. Think about changing your bulbs from warm white to cool white for a more naturally lit home. You can also think about replacing any old-fashioned lamp shades or fixtures you have, and replace them with something more sleek and modern. The simple change of a light fitting can have a big impact on a room and it can make your home feel much more modern.
Paint the walls
If you have a little bit of time on your hands and you are thinking of ways to make your living space feel fresh and new, a new colour on the walls might be exactly what you need. You don’t need to worry about changing up your whole colour scheme, simply choose one of the other colours from your palette. For example, if your scheme is yellow, grey, white and blue and your walls are currently yellow: paint them white or blue. A change doesn’t have to completely ruin your design, it can just bring it into the new year and make it feel fresh.
