After the imposed restrictions on people across the length and breadth of the United Kingdom and beyond due to the arrival of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, there has been a notable, even exponential surge in home improvement searches on the internet and sales in hardware and DIY shops.
If you are someone who wants to improve the overall aesthetic appearance of your home, then continue reading to discover five relatively easy ways to do so.
1. Feature Walls
The beauty of a feature wall is that if you have seen some unusually textured wallpaper or a particularly striking colour of paint which would be far too expensive when buying enough to cover the walls of a room, you are able to invest in what you want without breaking the proverbial bank.
One of the biggest spring and summer 2022 trends is based around muted greens and duck-egg blues, so a textured wallpaper at the foot of the stairs in one or both colours will really lift the aesthetic experience of the entire ground floor.
2. Update Your Kitchen Worktops
These days, there is a material to choose for your kitchen worktops that frankly remains unrivalled in quality, affordability and durability.
Upgrading the worktops throughout your kitchen to granite by working with a reputable, established and prestigious kitchen supplies company, such as granitetransformations.co.uk, will provide a beautiful, modern and stylish update to the space.
3. Crown Moulding
Crown moulding is one of those painting and decorating techniques which seem banal and perhaps inconsequential to many. In reality, taking the time to add crown moulding to each and every room will result in a huge difference in the overall feel.
There is a wide plethora of benefits to the addition of crown moulding, including but categorically in no way limited to:
- Crown moulding enhances the overall visual appeal of a room
- Crown moulding hides any and all imperfections on the walls and in corners
- Crown moulding comes in a myriad of different colours, textures and design options
- Crown moulding can significantly increase the value of your home
4. Stair Runners
If your old carpet is looking decidedly worn and past its metaphorical sell-by date, then obviously the ideal position to be in would be to be able to afford to replace all your old and worn carpets with brand new ones.
However, if you are currently not in the financial position to do this, one excellent way of sprucing up the appearance of your stairs is to add a beautiful toned and soft textured stair runner.
5. Fresh Flowers
Aside from the many benefits to one’s emotional wellbeing to allowing the presence of indoor plants, shrubs and flowers into a home, the addition of some beautifully arranged and sweetly scented flowers will also make a huge difference to visual appeal.
Fresh flowers could be considered to be the finishing touch to a room, but a stunning arrangement can even help mask an area of a room that needs work.
