Make A Change to Your Home!

Dissatisfied with how your home looks, but don’t have the time, effort or money to switch it up and make your home look a million times better? We all know that revamping your home, whether it’s redecorating or reorganising is a rather arduous task. In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, our home interiors tend to be a rather neglected project – a task that we always say we’ll get to do, but somehow never quite get around to. That’s why here at Shutterly Fabulous we have curated a guide showing you how to transform your home, whilst ensuring it is as swift, inexpensive, and effortless as possible – what more could you want? 

The Art of Strategic Furniture Arrangement

When approaching this task of transforming your home, it is important to consider that less is more. You only need to change a few elements of your home, so there is no need to exhaust yourself and create an even bigger task than what is necessary. For instance, simply rearranging your furniture is one of the most effective ways to transform your interior, and it is free! A top tip we have is to think about the seasons, which provide ideal opportunities to trial and error your furniture arrangements; in the spring and summer, declutter your space and position furniture to allow for more daylight to enter to give the impression of a larger, airy space. During the cosier and more homely seasons of autumn and winter, arrange seating areas to be slightly closer and facing one another to give a sense of a comforting and intimate gathering.

Incorporating Texture into Your Home

Another little decor tip that has big impact is adding texture to your home. By texture, we mean items of visual interest that stand out and immediately grab your attention – this could range from a cosy rug, plush covers and throws for your sofa, to even textured curtains. These additions not only infuse life into your home, but also provide a budget-friendly way to add a touch of wow factor to your home. 

The Power of Tidying Up and Organising

Ah, the dreaded task of tidying up and recycling items that you’ve somehow managed to hoard… Embracing tidying up and recycling your dated items can really elevate your upgrade your home and make it look very clean and sleek. Tackling the chaos of numerous chargers and tangled wires to make them more organised not only makes them more aesthetically pleasing to look at, but also can help you be more efficient in your day-to-day life and provide a little clarity into knowing where everything is. You could tap into your inner artist and create a DIY charger station as a unique focal point in any room of your house. You could even elevate your space further by illuminating your shelves and bookcases with lighting, forming a perfect blend of organisation, style, and affordability. 

However, extra caution regarding DIY electrical projects, even as simple as they may seem to be, needs to be undertaken. Embracing these projects without proper expertise and attention could result in safety hazards or the creation of more clutter instead of achieving the intended sleek and tidy look. 

NICIEC Technical Director, Paul Collins expressed his concern about the dangers of DIY electrical work. 

“While there are a lot of opportunities around the home for transformations at minimal cost through DIY, electrical work should not fall into this bracket. Inadequate electrical work can result in substantial expenses and hidden problems that might not be apparent until it’s too late, posing a risk to homes and families in the UK. Therefore, when considering upgrades to your home’s lighting and electrical systems, it’s important to entrust the job to competent professionals. This could significantly enhance the safety of your home” 

Therefore, take extra precautions if deciding to undertake any DIY electrical projects, because you want to ensure that your project toward a more beautiful home is a smooth sailing experience!  

Reduce, Reuse, and Repurpose!

Our personal favourite tip for making a change in your home is repurposing old belongings and furniture. Getting new shutters fitted, and don’t know what to do with your hardwood ones? One idea could be to repurpose them into a rustic plant pot, create a bespoke mirror frame, or even build some brand-new shelves. Embracing creativity in repurposing not only adds a unique touch to your home, but also contributes to inexpensive, sustainable and eco-friendly living practices
