4 Top Tips to Elevate Your Home

After a long, hard day, the best thing to do is to kick back and relax at home. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to enjoy chilling out in an outdated house that looks worse for wear. Your home should be a place you are proud of, but if a renovation is off the cards, it can be difficult to think of improvements. Here are a few top tips to help you elevate the appearance of your home and make you feel more comfortable.

Create a Focal Point

A boring old living space can be jazzed up with a focal point. This could range from a stunning light fixture as you enter the home, a cozy bay window or an eye-catching piece of furniture. An unconventional option is a luxurious bean bag chair. Sumo offers a selection of top of the range bean bags that can help you create a focal point. They are available in different sizes and come in a variety of colors and fabrics. To make a bean bag chair really stand out, choose a statement piece with contrasting colors and situate it somewhere immediately noticeable when you enter a room.

Re-Think Your Floor

The flooring in a home can have a huge impact on how a room looks. A carpeted floor can offer a warm, cozy vibe while a tiled floor can look great both indoors and outdoors. Hardwood flooring is a versatile option. It is durable, easy to clean and you can add a rug to swap up the look if you get bored of it. With a well-placed, decorative rug you recreate the vibe of a room and make it appear larger, or more cozy if you prefer. They can also be used to cover up problem areas, such as scuffed-up spots or blotches of spilled wine.

Decorate Your Walls

Revamp a room with wall décor. A gigantic mirror can add drama to an entryway while smaller, intricate pieces can add another dimension to a room. Use a mirrored decoration to reflect statement pieces. They can also be used to make a small living area feel bigger. A feature wall can liven up a boring space and is easy to create. Either pick a contrasting wallpaper or add a splash of color with paint. An elaborate mural made with high-quality stencils, or painted freehand, can help you transform a room.

Swap Your Doors

If your house has been standing for years then chances are the doors could do with a change. Doors are an intrinsic and well-used part of most homes, but they are often neglected. Swapping your old doors for a brand new set can accentuate a room and make it look better. Not to mention, it could improve insulation and security too. If your doors are in good working condition and you do not want to invest in a brand new door, then a lick of paint could do the job.

Don’t forget the fixtures either. A scuffed-up handle in a drab color can make a door look old and worn. Simply hand or spray paint it to give your door a finished look.
