5 Ways to Refresh Your Home in a Weekend

1. Declutter and Organise

“If you’re stuck on how to revamp your living space, a great place to start is by decluttering each room. Clear out any unnecessary items to create a clean slate and sense of order. Invest time in organising your wardrobes and drawers, ensuring that everything has its own place. Consider donating or selling items you no longer need.”

2. Change Up Your Décor

“If you want to implement a new style or theme within your home, it doesn’t always have to be costly. Simply swap out throw pillows, change curtains, or introduce new artwork to quickly alter the look and feel of a room. A great way to introduce some excitement and colour is also through open- shelving. This way, you can inject some fun and personality into your space simply by displaying your personal belongings, whether it’s your books, quirky collectables or plants.”

3. DIY Projects and Upcycling

“Unleash your creativity by taking on some DIY projects. From adding a fresh lick of paint to old furniture, to upholstering your worn-out textiles, there are plenty of ways you can breathe new life into your existing homeware. Don’t be afraid to get inventive and remember there’s nothing wrong with a bit of trial and error.”

4. Rearrange Furniture  

“Sometimes, all you need is a simple reconfiguration. This can help provide a fresh perspective without the need for major renovations. It’s also great for transforming the feel of a room, or even maximising floorspace. Experiment with different layouts to create a more functional and visually appealing environment.”

5. Embrace versatility

“A great way to transform your home is to implement strategic and versatile storage solutions. Consider investing in multi-functional furniture with hidden storage compartments, such as ottomans or console tables. This way, you can help minimise the appearance of clutter- preserving the aesthetic appeal of your home, whilst introducing long-lasting functionality. If you need something a little more permanent, short-term storage could be the answer to housing those items you currently don’t need, but not ready to let go of.”
