The new year is approaching — and your home could do with a little freshening up! These little changes will make all the difference in helping you achieve major results with minimal fuss.
HOW TO REVAMP YOUR HOME WITHOUT A RENOVATION
REORGANISE YOUR THINGS
Milton Home Home Organisers, $3.90 – $42.90
The easiest way to update your home on a budget is to simply rearrange what you already have. Take down all your display accessories and regroup them in a variety of combinations — by colour, size, or theme — and see what works best. Start simple by decluttering your desk with the help of home organisers like this set from Milton Home.
CHANGE YOUR BEDROOM COLOUR PALETTE
Intero Bedsheets, UP $200 – $300, NOW $109 – $159
You’ll be surprised at how a small change in colour palette can completely transform your room! Switch up your sheets for an instant facelift, and take the opportunity to experiment with something different – if you’ve always gone for patterns, why not try solids?
If you want to put in a bit more elbow grease into it, try painting the wall behind your bed a different colour too; an accent wall can help your room feel bigger than it is.
ADD INTERESTING LIGHT FIXTURES
Magic Wood Lamp, $315
Switching up your style with accessories doesn’t require much heavy lifting and makes a real impact. Change your light fixtures for a fresh new aesthetic, or add in a few stand-out pieces like these Mango Wood Lamps to draw the eye.
BUY ONE STATEMENT PIECE
Yosemite Sofa, UP$ 898, NOW $538
You can completely change the whole feel of your living room simply by rearranging your pieces and mixing up the flow. Add in a new statement piece like a boldly coloured sofa, interestingly patterned rug, or uniquely shaped coffee table, and you’ll feel all the difference.
CHANGE UP YOUR DINNERWARE
TSURU Lucky Cat Openstock Tableware, $8 – $22
Most people approach dinnerware with a mindset that it should be as plain and simple as possible, so that it doesn’t distract from your food. But why not go against the grain and introduce some pattern and colour instead! Whether for guests or for everyday use, your new dinnerware will be sure to make mealtimes that much more interesting and fun.
