What is your idea of a home?

For some, it could be a dream townhouse that they cut out of a magazine when they were ten years old. For others, it could be a grand mansion tucked away on a remote island. For a few, it could just be anywhere in the world, as long as it is with the one they love.

‘Home’ means different things to different people. Why is this so important? It is because your home speaks volumes about your own self. It is a representation of who you are as a person, and your own perspective of how you chose to capture and portray beauty in your home.

When choosing to add your own touch to your home, you can embark on a journey of discovery through many ideas and creative methods with which to revamp your living space.

Furniture updates

Beautiful and unique pieces of furniture can add authentic touches to your liven spaces. it will be important to ensure that a certain theme runs across the different spaces of the home, so that a cohesive end result is achieved. For example, if choosing to use timber floors, and if you are not using them throughout the home, then other tiles and flooring you do use in other parts of the home should match the timber flooring. Similarly, storage features such as cabinets and wardrobes should all be of the same colour and materials, especially in the public spaces of the home.

If you are opting to upholster existing furniture, then it will be necessary to first examine if they are in great condition, and that replacement is not needed. The upholstering material should also be one that is long lasting and of a neutral shade, so that it will not appear outdated in the future.

Cosmetic updates

Cosmetic updates are one of the easiest ways in which to give your living spaces a brand new look. Everything from drapes Melbourne to walls can be updated.

If you have a very open home with a lot of light coming in, then using high quality venetian blinds across your home would help you get some shade if it is ever needed.

Repainting walls around the home is also another quick way with which to breathe new life into your home. Painting the walls modern and neutral colours will keep it tasteful and modern. Adding accent shades onto adjacent walls will give unique character to the space. An accent wall of a shade of grey will compliment colour palette of furniture, as well as flooring and ceilings.
