6 Easy Tips For Revitalising Your Home From the Inside Out

Change is good for the soul.

When you are starting to feel a little stagnant, a great way to refresh yourself is to work on your home a little. Making a few changes to the spaces you occupy can make you feel rejuvenated! So here are six great ways to revitalise your house from our guest contributor, Chloe.

Cladding
External cladding can be a great way to add an interesting element to your home. It is a modern way of adding a textural interest. You can paint it in a myriad of colours to create a feature, for a more natural approach paint it white or a subtle grey for a modern Scandinavian look or use beautiful timber cladding for a softer accent.

Indoor Plants
Having indoor plants has so many benefits. It’s good for your mental health and promotes calmness and productivity. They are great for your body because of the extra oxygen they infuse into the air and absorb some of the pollutants. Plus they just look so great! Ferns and other moisture loving plants are great for the bathroom and you can never go wrong with succulents anywhere.

The great thing about succulents is that they require very little care, are almost impossible to kill and come in almost any colour you can think of. Rooms that have plant life just feel fresher, so this is a great option for those who want to add a little something to their home without changing any fundamental assets.

Natural Light
There are few things in life as revitalising as sunlight, so let the light flood in! Adding skylights and larger windows to areas of the house that don’t get much light can change everything. Light, bright rooms feel larger and fresher. If natural light is unrealistic there are so many different ways to light up a room now and creative lighting solutions can change the mood of any room.

Add Art
Adding artwork to a room can be as cheap or as expensive as you would like it to be! You need only consider two things if you like a piece; does the colour palette fit with the existing space and colours? Is it the right size for the room? If the answer to both is yes then consider your room refreshed!

Up-cycle Furniture
Another great way to breathe some fresh life into your home is to modify your furniture. This can mean giving your timbers a lick of paint or upholstering your chairs and sofas. This can be a cheap way of changing the colour story and feel of a room whilst also letting your inner DIYer or crafter free from the bonds of regular life.


Mix Up the Colour Palette
Finally if you are in desperate need of something different you can add interest by giving the walls a fresh coat of paint or adding a statement wallpaper. To complete the new look, invest in some throw pillows and rugs to tie everything together!

The beauty of life is that nothing stays the same. Embrace this and throw yourself into some home care and modification. There is nothing quite like the feeling of a new house and, if you can achieve this feeling by simply sprucing up the home you already live in, then why wouldn’t you? Revitalising your home doesn’t need to be expensive or complicated; it can be as easy as adding a few well-placed touches here and there.

Till next time... get started on updating your home and rejuvenating yourself!
