Updating Your Home on a Budget

With the winter months looming, now is the perfect time to turn your home into a cosy space that can accommodate the whole family. Why not check out our top three tips on how to achieve a light and bright space in which to relax?


Tip 1 IconUse Light and Bright Colours

Using light colours does not limit you to using shades of magnolia but it is best to avoid dark shades and neon tones, as although they can make a room feel warm and cosy they can have a negative impact for those looking to instil an increased sense of space. Consider not only the colour of your walls but also that of your furnishings, as dark wood flooring and sofa’s will naturally take up a large proportion of your living space, so will therefore have a significant impact on the overall feeling of space within your room.



Tip 2 IconUse Proportionate Furniture

Choose furniture that is relative to the size of your room as oversized furniture is certainly not going to help your room feel any larger! When you shop for furniture remember that the items you are viewing will often appear smaller in the vast showroom space than they will once in your own home. Take time to measure your space and map out exactly how much of your room that dream sofa is going to take up before deciding that it’s the one for you!


Tip 3 IconMake a Statement with Mirrors

Mirrors are a fantastic way to make your room feel larger, as they reflect your space and bounce light around your room to give the illusion of a greater space. Why not use framed mirrors to create a bold feature within your living room? Copper accessories are becoming increasingly popular and are a great way to add warmth to your space in time for winter too. Why not look to accessorise with a copper framed mirrors and matching copper door handles for a statement look.
