Your home is starting to feel a little worm, tired and over-loved. Everyday life can take a hold on your home and can take a toll on how it looks and how it feels. Refreshing your home and taking back control will leave you feeling fantastic and will leave you feeling great (because you have the home that you want, love, and deserve).
Where You Will Start
Before getting the paint tins out and before reaching for the wallpaper strippers, you need to think about where you want to start first (and where you need to start first). You may need lots of rooms working on, but this is not always the best approach to take. Deciding where you will start will ensure that your plan to refresh your home goes as smoothly as possible. So, is your top priority your kitchen, or is it your grubby-looking bathroom?
What The Main Priorities Are
Most likely, you will not have the budget, the finances, or even the time to carry out all of the projects that you want to do. Establishing what your main priorities are and then focusing on these first should be what you aim to do, sooner rather than later. So, is one of your top[ priorities your living room with the dated color scheme? Or is it a top priority to have a lighter and brighter kitchen?
Big Differences or Little Touches
When refreshing your home, it is sometimes those little touches that make the biggest impact, and this is something that you should remember. Undertaking big projects such as a new bathroom suite or even new kitchen countertops can be effective, but so too can new drapes, throws, or pillows in the living area.
How Much You Want To Spend
Before hitting the stores and buying everything you see, you need to think carefully about how much you want to spend, and most importantly, on what? If you fail to establish how much you want to spend, then you may end up splashing more cash than you want to, and certainly, more than you need to.
Any Temporary Fixtures You Will Need To Put In Place
Before you undertake any work within your home, you need to think about any temporary fixtures you might need to put into place. For example, if you are altering the flooring, or you are refreshing a color scheme, then you may well benefit from installing temporary flooring as this buys you some time to get what you want, and it helps to protect what you want to keep within your home.
Quite often, you can have an idea about how you want your home to look, but realizing that idea and bringing it to fruition can sometimes be harder than you think. Pulling together your inspiration and then putting ideas down on a mood board will ensure that when you refresh your home, it ends up looking just as you wanted it to (or as you had hoped it would).
