1. Shop Your Home

Ready to begin refreshing your interior design style? The best place to start is by shopping through your own home!

What does that mean? Well, “shopping through your own home” entails pretending like you’ve never been there before. This changes your perspective so you can look through your rooms with a fresh eye. Think about what you like about each room and what furniture and décor bring you joy. Then consider other places in the house where those items may fit, and other ways you could use them.

2. Change Up Your Bedding

Is your bedroom the place you go to each day to relax and unwind? If so, make sure it’s the relaxing sanctuary you need, and one swift way to do this is by switching up your bedding. By adding a pop of colour here and a touch of texture there you can bring more life into your design and enjoy your room anew.

3. Add Some Wall Décor

If you think your home is lacking creativity and inspiration, a great way to bring some in is through wall décor! Vast bare walls can leave your mind as blank and empty as a piece of paper… but they can also offer you a lot of creative potential!

Why not decorate your walls and make them unique statement pieces in your home? Alternatively, you could artfully set up a few floating shelves and create your own sophisticated gallery filled with your favourite items, such as art pieces, books, décor, small plant pots, and other knick-knacks.

4. Repaint Worn Out Décor or Furniture

Do you have old, worn-out, or “ugly” items in your home that you don’t like? You could either get rid of them, or you could paint them.

Items like cabinets, dressers, and dining table only need a fresh coat of paint for you to start loving them again! If this sounds like a fun project you want to try out, think about how you want items to fit with your interior—do you want to use a soft neutral colour palette that blends in with the rest of your interiors, or make it a statement colour that stands out? The choice is yours!

5. Purge and Simplify

When in doubt, having less may be exactly what you need (or don’t need). A cluttered home can be stressful to live in and make it hard to unwind. If this sounds relatable to you, decluttering and purging your home of junk and unused items may be just what you need to do.

6. Refresh Your Window Treatments

One of the easiest ways to refresh your home and make it feel new again is by switching out old, worn-out curtains and blinds and bringing in lovely new ones. Some old curtains take up too much space in small rooms or may even be tripping hazards in narrow hallways.

It may be time to take a look at your windows and decide how you want your treatments to complement your interior. Once you’re ready, head on over to our window blinds selection and browse away for inspiration!

7. Repaint Your Walls

Whether you’re repainting a piece of furniture or repainting a whole room, adding fresh colour to your interior can completely change up the feel! Are your walls too dark and sullen? Too bright and lurid? Or just plain dull? A fresh coat of paint can make it feel brand new while helping you match and balance the tones of your home and furniture. Two birds, one stone!

8. Add Some Greenery

If you haven’t gotten into the indoor plants rage, then it may be time to add some greenery and life to your space with potted plants. Not only do plants bring a splash of colour and positivity into any setting, they can also be a real mood booster. Potted plants are a lovely addition to any room, so why not add a leafy Ficus or two to the living room, a delightful Maidenhair Fern to the coffee table, or a blooming Peace Lily to the kitchen counter? Create a collection of your favourite plant-babies and watch them grow with pride!
