THE new year is a great time to freshen things up – starting with your home.
Here are some simple and low-cost ways to update the decor.
Here are some simple and low-cost ways to update the decor
BRIGHT IDEA: A little colour does wonders for the soul.
Try updating tired cushions with Primark’s velvet covers for £3.
The store sells a variety of eye-catching shades, including orange, yellow and green.
For a slightly bolder move, a bright side table should do the trick.
The Amiya table is on sale at Wayfair, starting at £23.99 for the one in pink. It also comes in yellow, blue and white.
ADD TEXTURE: Rugs and blankets can give rooms a bit of extra depth.
George at Asda has teddy throws on sale for £7.
Online retailer Kukoon offers a large range of good-value rugs, and all sale lines are currently half-price.
Or Aldi’s Kirkton House diamond Sherpa rug, £39.99, is a fail-safe option that will suit most tastes.
LIGHT UP: Lamps give your living areas extra ambience and warmth.
Try Dunelm’s Hebe ribbed ceramic table lamp for £6
Floor lamps are another great addition.
John Lewis’ Anyday Harry option is reduced to £35.
MIRROR MIRROR: Give the illusion of extra light and space in your home with a wall mirror.
Aldi’s natural round mirror, £19.99, works well in hallways or above a fireplace.
Floor-length designs are a top choice for bedrooms — and the bigger, the better.
Habitat’s Arch full-length wall mirror is down from £110 to £55.
ART WARMING: Switch up the dynamics of any room with new pictures and artwork.
Online store Fy stocks prints that cater for most tastes and currently has up to 30 per cent off.
Also, why not print out some of your favourite photos from the collection building up on your phone?
You will get far more enjoyment from them if they are on display.
Once you have picked out a picture, Wilko sells photo frames from £3.50 and wall frames starting at £5.
