It is fair to say that some people do not like change, the idea of completely revamping a home or an outdoor area may seem too overwhelming to those of us who are very sentimental. However, as time goes on the style of our home dates and sometimes our homes and gardens are in need of a bit of TLC. This article will give you subtle but affective tips on how to make cautious changes to your home.
Make changes to your lawn
If you are looking to make a subtle but effective change to the look of your garden, then artificial grass from Grass Warehouse is a good place to start your search, as artificial grass looks natural and the installation process is very easy and it should subtly fit into your garden.
Consider using paving
If you want to make a slightly bigger change to your outdoor area, a patio is a good feature to add to your garden, as it creates a nice social space for you and your guests to enjoy. Furthermore, a paved drive way is also beneficial as creating a safe drive way, adds value to a home, so this is something to keep in mind, if you ever decide to sell your home.
Luckily, paving doesn’t need to be expensive, but it is a good idea to find paving that suits the style of your home and that is durable enough to last through many future harsh winters that we may have.
Switch up on your soft furnishings
It is easy to hold on to your homely soft furnishings for many years, but there comes a time where your soft furnishings are most likely not in the best condition that they once were before. By soft furnishings, we mean soft items such as: curtains, blinds, rugs, throws, blankets and cushions. If you decide to change any of these items, it will definitely make a subtle yet effective change to the appearance of a room.
Add plants and flowers to your garden
Plants and flowers definitely help to make a garden look well looked after. The beauty of adding plants and flowers to your garden is that planting flowers and plants takes minimal effort and they only need watering ever so often.
Paint your front door and window ledges
A new and popular interior design trend is to change the colour of your exterior doors and windows of your house. More and more people seem to be ditching dark and dreary coloured doors and changing the colours to a lighter and paler complexion. Grey has been an extremely popular colour choice for the last three or so years, but now we are seeing pastel colours being used more frequently. A personal favourite, is the use of pale pink, pale pink really makes a home look inviting and it also brings a subtle warm to the exterior of a home. However, if pink is too feminine for your house hold, mint green is also a lovely colour to use.
