Simple Upgrades to Spruce up Your Home

Sometimes we all get a bit bored of the same old scenery in the home. After all, it is somewhere we spend the majority of our time, and if things are a little bit tired, this can make us feel tired too.

Fortunately, there are a lot of simple changes we can make that don’t cost a fortune and can easily make the home look and feel a bit more inspiring. This can reinvigorate you for the coming autumn and winter. So, if you are ready to inject the va-va-voom back into your home, here are a few ideas:

Change Your Faucets

We use Faucets every day without fail, so why not think about swapping your existing ones for some more stylish ones. This is a pretty simple upgrade for both the bath and kitchen and can make a huge difference to the overall aesthetics. Perhaps you could try brass or gold faucets if you currently have silver or vice versa.

There is a huge range on the market, and you may even be able to pick some up second-hand. While you’re at it, why not upgrade your door handles and light switches too.  

Throws and Pillows

You can easily jazz up your living room by replacing your old throws and pillows. Add a little color and patterning. This can really give you that inspiration you desire. You don’t need to be uniform on your colour choice either. If you want to have that mismatched style, then go for total mismatch; otherwise, it may not work properly. But at the end of the day, the choice is yours. 


Over time, most homes generally get more and more cluttered with things we no longer want, need, or use anymore. However, the process of decluttering can become fairly stressful, which puts us off doing it. We’d rather shut the cupboard door than deal with that.

But if you can begin the process and spend at least ten minutes a day, you’ll find that you’ll have more space. More space is important for lower stress levels, the ability to move around more easily and relax. Decluttering is especially important as we get older and less mobile.

Having more space enables better movement with mobility devices. You may even find the space to install a much-needed handrail next to your favorite chair. Remember all you may need to install the handrail correctly is a Key Clamp.


If your carpet looks a little worn and feels a little old, why not throw down a new rug instead of buying a new carpet. With so many shapes and sizes to choose from, you will definitely find something that suits your style and even add that dramatic look you may be after.

Not only do they look great, but they feel great on your feet too. A statement rug has the ability to liven up any room, from the living room and dining room to the bedroom, and the fabric can be far more exciting than a carpet anyway.
