Sometimes you just want to change everything in your home. Especially when the seasons are changing. It can be a great way to freshen things up, to make a difference. You should take pride in your property, primarily because it is where you live and the nicer it is the more comfortable you will be and feel. Some people like to do everything at once, others go room by room, making the changes as their funds and allow. Time is a constraint too, so you may want to plan your change up in advance when you know you will have time to do it. By the necessary furniture, fixtures and fittings before hand, so you know you have what you need to just make the change a joy. The storage will be a problem, so try to free up some space in a garage or spare room to keep the furniture until you are ready. You could think about hiring someone to make the changes for you, which is great if you have the money. Yet you still need to be careful because you will want it to be perfect, as such you will need to keep an eye on the tradesman or decorator. In which case, why not just do it yourself?

 

These hints and tips can help you decide on the changes to make to certain parts of your home. You may have considered some of them already, but look into the others too as they could lead you down different paths of thought that could end up in better room creations.

 

The Bedroom

You need to get the bedroom right because it is where you sleep, sleep being an important part of a human’s life. You need to ensure the room promotes good sleep. There are a few ways to do this. For a start, consider swapping out the bed. Get a new mattress, you don’t want to skimp here. Get something great that supports your weight. If you get something that doesn’t really fit you well, then take it back and exchange it for something that does. As well as the mattress you should also consider premium bedding, such as these split king sheets. The bed needs to be as comfortable as possible. If you use a TV in the bedroom consider removing it as it can easily keep you from sleep as you will associate your bed with leisure instead of sleep. Granted, it can be good to watch TV in bed, just try to do it infrequently. You can also consider changing the curtains out for better ones that block out the light. Go for light colors on the wall. If you are suffering from excess dust in your bedroom then consider carpet flooring instead of wood, it retains the dust better allowing it to be hoovered up where wooden floor just helps it float around and settle. The bedroom is a place you should give much of your time because the time you spend there is important. You should be able to relax, do all you can to promote sleep there.

Bathroom

One of the biggest niggles about bathrooms is that they are simply not big enough. People say it all the time. The trick here is to get rid of your bath. Many don’t use them, they would rather shower because it is far quicker. Some still enjoy a large soak, but if you don’t, imagine the space you would have if you got rid. You could place way more in the bathroom than current. If you suffer from mold or condensation build ups then invest in some ventilation. It can stop this from occurring, as can specialist paint. Another great addition is of a heated towel rail. Especially in the winter months. Getting out of the shower and being able to wrap a warm towel around yourself can make a huge difference. It also acts as a radiator, flooding the home with heat.

 

The Landing

The landing should be a place of transition, nobody spends much time here except to cross from room to room. Keep it simple. Light airy colors are best, and you can sprinkle the walls with favorite pictures. For that added bit of luxury go for a quality carpet that will feel great underfoot. If you have a radiator here you may want to isolate it. Sure it will help heat the home, but you may as well use those in the bedrooms, no one stays on the landing. You can get some more space while also making it look a bit less cluttered. It will save on your heating and energy bills too.

 

Living Room

This is probably the place you spend most of your leisure time. As such, you should make it a really great place to be at all times. Comfy sofas and a good set up that promotes comfy living. Look at your current set up and ask yourself, what would make this better? Do you like music? Consider installing a multi-room system. Enjoy the TV? Then go for a new set. If you are tired of the room and can’t really afford these addition consider changing it around. You’d be surprised by the effect it could have. Move the couch to another side of the room for example and the tv likewise. Maybe get rid of an unused table or consider simply a fresh lick of paint. Go for a two level effect and paint one wall while papering the other. There are dozens of things you can do if you have the time to invest into it.

 

The Kitchen

It’s a place many people hate to be, yet have to use. Cooking is a passion for some, and a hate for others. You can get over this by trying to make it a better place in your home. See if there is any room for seating, and think about installing a sound system or a TV to make things easier. If you have an old oven consider investing in a new one for better quality food. If you want a total revamp then you could be looking at a substantial outlay, yet you don’t necessarily have to focus on the whole thing, instead you can get smaller appliances as and where needed.

 

The Garden

As summer approaches more and more time will be spent relaxing in the garden. As such, you should make it a better place to be. Plant plants now so they they bloom in the summer, you can get different ones too so that they bloom at different times, meaning your garden will always have a dash of color. Think about jet washing any patio, so that it looks lighter and brighter. You can get a patio heater too if you love spending your days in the garden, this way you can stay even longer when it starts to darken. You can get sculptures, carvings, all sorts of ornaments that allow you to enjoy the garden. Consider a barbecue, or maybe you want something more drastic like some decking. It can be great if you have little time to cut the grass, this makes the job easier and decking is a nice place to relax after a hard day’s work.

 

There are many things you can do to your home. Just plan it out first, ensure you know exactly what you want and what you are doing before going ahead. These changes can enrich your life for the better.
