Old To New

Do you want to revamp your space?

Do you ever look at a room in your home and fancy a change? It doesn’t have to be as costly as you think.

Here are a few simple ways to change up a room on a budget:

  • Furniture – There are so many different ways to alter the appearance of your furniture. This could be as simple as just changing the handles or adding a pop of colour by giving the item a lick of paint.
  • Upholstery – Do you have a chair or a pouffe that is looking a bit worse for wear? Make a statement! Why not choose a bold print totally change the look of the item by refreshing it with some reupholstery?
  • Rugs – Is your carpet looking a bit tired but you’re not ready for a new one? There are so many beautiful rugs out there… you can really warm up your home or tie in new colours or themes with the purchase of a new rug. Rugs look great on wood / LVT and laminate flooring aswell as over an existing carpet.
  • Cushions & Throws – A simple change can be made by swapping or adding new scatter cushions to your chairs and covering sofas with a complementing throw. Floor cushions are a great feature too!
  • Curtains & Blinds – Swap your curtains for blinds or your blinds for curtains. The difference is dramatic! Especially if choosing a bold print and some matching accessories.
  • Feature Wall – Changing a room can be as simple as adding wallpaper or paint to just one wall of your room. Dramatic dark tones are still very popular and make a huge difference to a previously light room.
  • Plants & Lamps – We love plants! Bring the outdoors indoors with a collection of plants. You can pick these up from supermarkets and they add a lot of character to any room. Alter the lighting and atmosphere with statement freestanding lamps.
