Great New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

Great New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

Instead of making New Year’s resolutions for yourself this year (which you always break, of course), why not create some more achievable ones for your home? 

From giving those tired-looking spaces a fresh lick of paint to completing those bigger jobs you’ve been meaning to do, the New Year is the perfect time to get stuck into your home design projects. 

Here’s how: 

Create an Impact with Accents 
Instead of giving your whole home an overhaul, you can refresh existing schemes with some striking soft furnishings and accessories. Give your lounge or bedroom an instant update with new cushions or bedding, opting for a pop of colour that lifts the room while still complementing your existing décor. Throws are also the perfect way of bringing an additional texture or colour to your room and they double up as cosy accessories when the temperatures dip, too. 

Plan for Bigger Projects 
Granted, installing a new kitchen or bathroom isn’t cheap, but if it’s something you’ve been meaning to do for a while, it’s a good idea to plan for this next year. For example, if you’ve been wanting a new family bathroom for ages, start by planning this out, making sure there’s plenty of storage for all your toiletries, you’ve got all the facilities you need for the kids (i.e. a large bath) and you’ve picked out the colour scheme for your tiles. Don’t forget to shop around for the best deals, too, checking out places like Travis Perkins for special offers on bathroom suites, furniture and accessories that’ll help you complete the look in style. 

Breathe New Life into Your Home with Paint and Wallpaper 
Even painting or wallpapering one wall in a new colour can give your home a new lease of life. Look around for inspiration as to what colours are on-trend next year (rumour has it this will be subtle pink blush, vibrant reds, shades of purple, statement blacks and understated pastels) before working out how you’ll incorporate this into your existing design scheme or whether you’ll go for a completely new look. You could even introduce this colour on the walls at the start of the New Year before gradually building up a base of accessories, soft furnishings and complementing items throughout the year. 

This won’t just help you spread the cost of redesigning your room but will make it feel as though
this space is constantly evolving, so there won’t be any need to update it again the year after!
So, as we head into 2018, take some time to think about those must-dos you’ve been putting off
over the last few years and make sure next year is the year you achieve some of your New Year’s
resolutions.
