There are a few really simple ways you can update your home that will help to add character and personality. Of course there are so many more ways you can easily update your home out there…but I’d be here all day if I were to list them all. Start off with these ideas and see how you get on.

Change your hardware

Changing up your hardware can totally change the look of a room like the bathroom or kitchen, and is really cost effective too. The great thing about this is you can even do it yourself! No need to call in a professional to help you, which will help save you money in the long run.

Create a feature wall

Every home should have at least one feature wall, maybe even two – just not in the same room. A feature wall draws the eye, and adds personality to any room. You can create a feature wall with a simple pot of paint or wallpaper – it’s totally down to you. Don’t be afraid to be bold either, let your wild side come out.

Upcycle your furniture

How about upcycling your furniture, instead of replacing it? You can do this with special paints, and even by gluing on paper so it looks as if it was painted on to the surface. I recently turned an old, tatty sideboard into a new shabby chic masterpiece, all for the cost of a tin of paint.Β
