How To Update Your Home In 2016

Are you fed up with your current home, but don’t want to move? You don’t have to! There are easy ways to transform your dated and dreary house to a cosy and colourful home.

These changes won’t only make it a place you love to spend time in, they will also add value to it when the times does come for you to sell it.  

Here are a few ways you can update your home, whatever your budget!

Have a spring clean
Updating your home can be as easy as giving it a spring clean. Transform a messy and dirty home into a sparkling space that you are proud of. This doesn’t mean a quick dust and hoover – this means getting in all the nooks and crannies – hoovering under the bed, cleaning inside the oven and washing the curtains.

If this mammoth task of cleaning the house from top to bottom is a little daunting, then call in Molly Maid Spring Cleaning service and let the professionals do it for you!

Add a splash of colour
A splash of colour is a quick way to brighten up your home – this could be as subtle or dramatic as you wish. Whether you want to add a mellow yellow, a hot pink or a calming blue – this can be created through a lick of paint to the walls or simply by adding some bright new pillows.  

Don’t forget the garden!
Your garden is as much a part of your home as the house itself. It is easy to forget about your garden and let it become overgrown and messy, especially during the winter months when it is too cold to go outside. However, simply tidying it up, planting some bright flowers and adding a few features will give it an instant update.

Small touches make a big difference
Small touches are easy and fairly cheap to achieve – you could change your curtains, add in a large mirror or create a photo wall – with quirky frames to show off your favourite photos or paintings! Smaller items can have the same effect – new lampshades or ornaments can update a room immediately.

Accessories will brighten and transform a room in an instant - choose a whole new theme or colour scheme to bring it all together and change the look of your rooms.

Create more space
There are many ways you can create more space within your home – how about knocking down walls to create more of an open plan home, convert your loft into a games room, or add a conservatory so you can enjoy your garden even when it is raining! These are all far cheaper and less disruptive than building an extension and, in most cases, you won’t even need to get planning permission!

Give your kitchen a makeover
The kitchen is the heart of the home and therefore a good place to start if you want to make updates to your house. This can easily be done on a budget and doesn’t necessarily mean installing a brand new kitchen – it could just mean replacing cupboards, worktops or flooring.

A few simple changes can make your current house feel like a brand new home in no time!
