5 ways to freshen up your home for 2018

New year, new home! Let’s get 2018 off to a good start by sprucing up your home. Get your paint brushes, bin bags and imagination at the ready as now is the perfect time to get your humble abode ready for the year ahead.

A touch of paint…
Nothing spruces up a home quite like newly painted walls. If you’ve been considering getting the paint brushes out and trying something new in your home, now is the ideal time. To make your home feel super fresh and clean, why not try light and pale tones in your home which will look great in Spring and Summer. Not only can pastel colours make a room feel bigger, they also give you more freedom with home furnishings as you aren’t limited with colour options.

Fresh colours
Out with the old and in with the new! Add a touch of colour to your home here and there to make it feel fresh and new. Pantone’s colour of the year is Ultra Violet, so all things violet, lavender and lilac are set to be big in 2018. From a new chair, a lamp or even new cushions, a spot of colour here and there can make the world of difference in a home. Here at Furnish Your Home, we have a range of chairs that can help bring colour and warmth to a room.

Have a move around
Whether it’s moving the TV to a different spot in your living space or having a total move around in your home, by simply moving what you already own into a different area, it can make your home feel completely brand new. Try moving your furniture around in your living space, bedroom and whatever else takes your fancy and discover what works for you.

Get rid
Get those black bin bags at the ready as it’s time to get serious! Your home will never feel ready for the year ahead if it is full of things you simply don’t need. Whether that’s clothes in your wardrobes that you haven’t worn for years, tins in the cupboards that went out of date months ago and all the boxes that the kids Christmas presents came in, now is the time to get rid and bring some much-needed space to your home.



Treat your home

Christmas may be long gone, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t treat your home to a new piece or two to enjoy in 2018. Whether it’s fresh linen, towels, curtains or even a brand-new piece of furniture, it can help make your home feel new without going too overboard. However, keep in mind the changes of seasons and temperatures before you buy, so that you can get good use of them throughout the year instead of just certain months.
