Your home should be your safe haven. The place where you feel at your most comfortable and relaxed. As a result, it is important that the space itself reflects this, which could mean that you’re long overdue a home makeover!

With that in mind, here are some top tips that you can use to transform your home – creating the kind of space you love to spend time in.
Start by decluttering.
By now, you’re likely well aware of the fact that keeping a clean house is vital for your health. As a result, you can better your health while also making your home look better by decluttering. Thankfully, there are many ways in which you can take control of the clutter in your home. For example, you could go through your belongings and donate, sell, or dispose of anything you no longer need or use. Generally, a good rule of thumb to follow is to lose anything you haven’t used in the past year and don’t think you’ll use in the next few months. You can also declutter by getting more organized. For example, you could organize your pantry.
Bring in the experts.
While you can use your DIY skills to make minor changes within your home, such as applying new wallpaper or hanging photos – it’s important that you know when to bring in the experts. For example, if you want to make drastic changes to your home’s interior, you may want to consult with an architect who can help you to execute your vision safely and with style. Alternatively, they could assist you in building a new home from scratch – the kind that is built to cater to your exact needs, style, and taste.
Focus on one room at a time.
Renovating your home from top to bottom can quickly become a stressful and time-consuming task. However, you can spread out the costs (and lower your stress) by approaching renovations one room at a time. Ideally, you should start with the rooms that require the most care and attention, before working your way through the rest of the house. Most people tend to start with crucial rooms such as the kitchen. After all, you’ll use your kitchen every single day, and it’s important that it is up to scratch so you can make more meals from home and do not have to rely on takeout food.
Don’t shy away from color.
Many homeowners opt for simplistic or muted color schemes – which is why you see a lot of beige, cream and white in interior design magazines and showhomes. While this can create a calming atmosphere, it can also get boring pretty quickly. As such, you can inject life into your home by introducing a splash of color here and there. For example, you could paint one wall in each room a bright or eye-catching colour or buy some statement furniture. Be sure to read up on color psychology ahead of time so that you have more control of the atmosphere you curate.
