Whether you’ve recently bought your home, or you’ve saved some money and you’re ready to increase the value of your home while making it a nicer place to live, there a few areas to focus on, and a few to avoid. Here are some ways you can improve your home this year:
Purchase a conservatory
A conservatory is an excellent way to make a huge change to your home, and will give you a brand new space to work with. Orangeries has a massive range of gorgeous timber conservatories. Timber is cost-effective, durable, and strong, and can easily be made to work with whatever decorative details or complex shapes you need- each conservatory is tailored to your unique specifications.
Timber is renewable, the best wood to use if you’re environmentally conscious, and is easy to work with, so you can get a natural looking conservatory that you’ll love. If you’re hoping to add a gorgeous new space to your home, a conservatory is the way to go.
Change the bedrooms
Most people spend a lot of time in their bedrooms, which is why it’s important that they feel welcoming, spacious, and warm, while also representing each person’s personality. Since our bedroom is our own space where we can retreat away from the world, it’s a good idea to take your time with choosing your furniture and colours here, which will ensure that you’re happy with the final result.
Wood furniture is always a great idea since it’s unlikely to date and will usually stay in excellent condition. It’s also a good neutral, so you can choose whichever colours you like for your carpet, walls, curtains, and bed linens.
Do some DIY
Whether you’re on a budget or you simply like the idea of contributing to your home, there are some great ways that you can incorporate DIY aspects while making your house more homey and also increasing its value. There are thousands of interior design and DIY blogs, magazine, and TV shows, not to mention YouTube channels, and of course, Pinterest. You can easily grab some great ideas from these sources and use your personality with the implementation.
You’ll find that yard and garage sales are a great place to find furniture that can be repurposed, and as long as you can see potential in the pieces you choose, you’ll have plenty of fun while making it work with your theme. Tables and chairs can easily be refurbished, and you’ll find that a lot of the best tips are about removing clutter from your home, and using particular things to keep different areas neat and tidy
Get the family involved
If you’re serious about making some changes to your home, the best idea is to talk to your family so you can be on the same page- after all, it’s their home too and they’ll probably have some great thoughts.
Ask the kids about the colours they like for their rooms, brainstorm with your spouse about furniture choices, and do some DIY together- it’s an excellent bonding experience.
