Revamp your windows
Revamping the way your windows look doesn’t have to be expensive. You could personalise your home by giving your windows a new look, with a fresh coat of paint or by simply dressing them differently. Use voile panels to give your windows a fresh, subtle look while keeping light levels high.
Alternatively, simply frame your windows differently by tying back your existing curtains in a new way – look out for distinctive pieces of cord, braid or ribbon, or a coordinating fabric to change their look. If you have a larger budget, consider installing or updating your patio doors to transform a reception room in your home. By installing patio doors you’ll increase the natural light levels in your home and bring the outdoors indoors, so you can enjoy your garden whatever the weather.
Want to add a personal touch to your home? Then get creative to add style that’s one of a kind to your home. Patchwork, knitting and crochet can all be used to add chic soft furnishings and accessories to your home, from cushions to throws and more. If you are new to crafting there’s lots of advice available online including helpful craft tutorials. Also take a make do and mend approach to upcycling existing pieces in your home with paint, decoupage or fabric.
