Getting Bored Of Old Decor? Let's Refresh That!

By old decor, we don’t mean something that’s necessarily a few years old. Old decor could be something that you’ve had for a year or less, because to you it is going to be old news. But in your home, you’re not going to want anything that’s old news. You’re going to want fresh, exciting, and something that you can feel you’re proud of. But then you need to have a think about what decor you’re going to like. Are you going to refresh it by going for something exactly the same, or are you going to refresh by going for something that you wouldn’t usually go for? Whichever one you choose, it’s time to get your DIY gloves on, and give your home that refresh that it must be crying out for. Here’s a room by room guide, with a few different tips that we think you might like to use.


The Bathroom

We want to start with the bathroom first, because it is usually the room that’s last the be done. For some reason, the room that’s most easily outdated quickly, is the last to be decorated first! However, when it does come to the time where you can decorate the bathroom, it’s so easy to bring it up to a modern day standard, making it look and seem amazing. One theme we really want to talk to you about today is the spa theme. Everyone loves a bit of a spa day, they’re just so relaxing, so imagine being able to recreate this feeling in the comfort of your own home. If you want to achieve the spa look, there’s a few things that you can do. The first involves making the room as dark and mysterious as possible. Sticking to darker colour styles, preferably ones that look like stone, or even are stone, would be perfect for this. To make sure the contrast of the dark tiles and the bright lights isn’t too much for you, make sure you install a dimmer light so you can change the intensity, depending on how relaxed you want to be. A rainfall shower is definitely a must as well! The rest of the bathroom just needs to be crisp, with perhaps a candle in the corner to treat the senses, Try and stick to a white toilet and sink!

The Bedroom

The bedroom just has to be relaxing. It’s the one place you’re going to come home to at the end of the day, and think, I really have missed you. Getting the bedroom to be relaxing really isn’t hard, you just have to know what it is to make the room relaxing for you. If it was our opinion, we would advise you the same as we would have with the bathroom. You need to keep things a little darker to induce that relaxation that you’re looking for. When thinking of the bedroom, we would think of colours such as greys, beige, and blacks. You don’t want to paint the whole wall black, but think of going for a nice light grey, with some black accessories, and white furniture, it really would look good.



The Kitchen

It’s definitely easy for the kitchen to become a little battered. Some heavy duty work is being carried out in there, and the decor is going to reflect that. Whether it be chips in the paint from where pots and pans have knocked it, or from where grease has stained the wall. We don’t have you to do a full renovation here, or things definitely would get super expensive. If you’ve ever wondered, what is my home decor style?, then now is the time to find it out. The kitchen is a hard room to decorate right, and everything has to flow in order to make working in the kitchen easier for you. You might benefit from just simply touching up the paint, and switching up the kitchen accessories that you have. For the paint, we would always suggest something nice and light, such as a white. Some people play with colours in the kitchen, which is fine to do some. You could consider having yourself a little feature wall of a different colour, and then having a nice feature clock to put on it. As for accessories, think of getting some indoor plants to breathe a little life into the room.

The Living Room

The living room is all about creating a sense of welcoming and comfort. If you have a family, it’s going to be the one room where you’ll all be able to sit down together, watch some TV, and forget about the troubles of the day. For the living room, we would definitely suggest considering whether you need a new sofa set. They’re expensive we know, but they do last for years. If it is time for you, then a corner sofa should definitely be on your agenda. As for the decor, try and go a little fancy for once. Think of chandeliers, silver ornaments, and fancy wallpaper to set the tone.
