|Making your house your home this winter|
Most people are put off redecorating their home so close to Christmas, when we all know are lives can be stressful enough as it is. Luckily DIY stores know this and will be offering big discounts on most things throughout the winter, meaning you can redecorate your home for less this season. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can save hundreds of pounds on a new kitchen or bathroom suite. For 2016, the big trend for kitchens looks sure to feature more traditional, wooden kitchen cabinets. Choose a clean shade of white or grey and complement this with some bright coloured accessories and a second-hand sideboard or dining table and chairs to finish the look. If you decide your bathroom need a refresh, the same bold shades of grey and white are once again dominating the current trends. Decorate around your new suite with some big, brick style tiles in one of these shades and add copper accessories to make the room look really luxurious.
If you’re one of the many households expecting to have family over to stay this Christmas or in the New Year, then you might want to redecorate your spare room. Although you’ll need it as a bedroom when you have guests to stay, it might only be used for that purpose a few times a year. Make the most of your extra space in the spare room by buying a day bed that can be used as a chair as well. Whatever the style of your room, you’ll find a wide range of metal and wooden day beds on Bedstar to transform your room into an extra seating area. Add some furniture that you can use all year round to add to the practicality of the room. If you’ve got too many clothes, add a wardrobe and a dressing table and turn it into a dressing room.
But possibly the most important room for you this winter has to be the living room. It’s the place all the family can spend quality time together and maybe even snuggle up under a blanket and enjoy a good film. Whilst the weather outside is frightful, it’s especially important that this room feels warm and welcoming this season. This is the room where you really want to add a splash of colour. Whether it’s a colourful sofa, a feature wall or a nice bright rug, make sure you choose colours that complement each other. A couple of bright, bold colours alongside a warm white or cream colour can make your room look really inviting. Any more colours and it could start looking a bit chaotic.
Whatever room you choose, you’ll feel the full benefits of your new design more if you do the redecorating this winter. You might even manage to save a bit of money as well.
