3 Ideas for the Ultimate Home Revamp


For most of us home is indeed where the heart is, as we often tend to use our homes as an extension of our personality. And then as we adapt and change we often find we make small changes to our home. In this post though, I'm going to be sharing some of the more significant changes you can make to your home, to give it the ultimate revamp. 

The Walls and Lights
One of the biggest changes we can make to our home, is to the walls and lights. Getting them exactly right for the feel of your home is so important! Firstly, paying attention to how important natural light is to your home is an essential step. Natural light interacts with your home, and can therefore make a room feel completely different. If you have large windows, you can afford to go slightly darker with the colours of your walls, as they will allow more light into the property. 

If you aren’t blessed with larger windows or a particularly large house, there is no reason to fret though. Having the wall on the opposite side of the window, a clean and bright color will help distribute the light more evenly. A great trick to give the illusion of more space is to put up a large mirror - having a large mirror on the opposing wall will reflect the light in the room, making it feel much bigger and brighter.

The Floors
One thing that will certainly give your home its edge is the flooring. You could have a perfectly decorated and accessorised home, but if the flooring is bad, it won't look it's best! There are a two options when it comes to flooring - revamp or replace. If revamping is your preference, this can give your home the ultimate edge. Companies like Brisbane Timber Floors can give you that one of a kind look you have been searching for.

If you want to replace completely, just remember that a carpet isn't always the only choice. Wood flooring in the home adds a certain sense of elegance and luxury. They are much easier to upkeep as well, as things can be wiped up easily or covered with a well placed rug. Perfect if you have young children!

One of the most under-appreciated things in revamping the home, is just how valuable the right accessories are. We are not just thinking of pictures and plants either, there are little things you should pay attention to as well, such as light switches, light fittings, plug sockets, and most importantly, any wood you have around the home.

If there is one thing that can age a property its the coloring of the wood in the home. Darker woods are nowadays very outdated and can age a home. So it might be time to update these, or add brighter accessories to complement these areas. When looking at light switches and fittings, getting this right is incredibly important too. Placing copper fittings around a thoroughly modern, bright, and edgy home wouldn't look right at all - it's all about finding the right style for you.
