Good thing is that you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg; check out the below ideas on how you can make your house look great this Christmas;
1. Declutter the house;
One of the things that make houses look archaic and untidy is having rooms filled with unnecessary items and accessories all over. A minimalist looking house is far much better; remember that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. You shouldn’t fill a room with furniture and accessories, so much that it seems all crammed up and clumsy.
Only have items that you need, the rest can be disposed of (sold, donated or thrown away). Remove the unnecessary pieces and rearrange the rooms to suit your style; you’ll end up with a more spacious room that has better aesthetic appeal.
2. Dust the Furniture;
Rearranging the furniture is the easy part; we often forget that the furniture also needs to be cleaned. That dull and faded look can be eliminated in an instant by wiping and dusting your home furniture. This is especially the case for furniture that has upholstery in it. Hiring a professional Bolton carpet cleaning company goes a long way in bringing out that immaculate look on your furniture. Such a company uses the latest technology to rid the upholstery of any dirt and stubborn stains, leaving it sparkling clean.
3. Professional Carpet Cleaning;
Very often, we tend to give the carpet scant attention when cleaning our homes. True, you can clean your carpet at home on a weekend and save a few coins. But truth is that no matter how good you do it, a professional carpet cleaning company will always do a better job. This is because they have experience cleaning all types of carpet fabrics; they use pressured hoses and detergents to rid the carpet of all stains and dirt. Besides, they also vacuum clean the carpet to remove any pet hairs and furs, including the small ones that your naked eye can’t notice. Apart from stains, carpets also hold bacteria and allergens that can only be removed by thorough carpet cleaning.
4. Play around with the Lighting;
Let there be light! Light can change the entire outlook of a house. Put beautiful pieces in the homes in well-lit areas to create a focal point in your space. Colour blocking is also a suitable way of playing with lighting by putting a precise colour to match with furniture.
5. Incorporate flowers;
Have you ever considered the idea of an urban jungle in your quarters? Well, flowers and indoor plants help create some ambiance and serenity that’s hard to replicate. Just be sure to keep it simple, avoid cluttering too many flower vases in the room.
6. Dress the windows;
Hang the drapery as high as possible and use it to play with lighting. The long hanging curtains on the windows make your space look bigger; they also help improve the aesthetics of the space.
7. Paint your ceiling;
There is a reason Michelangelo took four years to paint the ceiling Sistene chapel. However, you don’t need to be a pro when it comes to painting your home ceiling. Just make time one weekend and assemble different colours, play around with them and come up with a pattern on your ceiling. The internet is full of numerous DIY tips on carpet painting.
