Transforming Your Home in Small Steps
Believe it or not, you don’t have to entirely remodel your home and start redecorating to transform the overall look and feel of your home. Even the most classical, timeless décor can age after a while so there is no harm is adding a fresh vibe to your home by changing the easily replaceable elements of your home to transform the overall look. We have prepared some beautiful tips to transforming your interior design in small steps.
- Changing Your Cabinet Hardware
Changing your cabinet hardware can add life to a tired looking piece of furniture and increase the longevity of your classical piece, not to mention encouraging sustainability. Never underestimate the power of updating your cabinet hardware when transforming your home.
Depending on the vibe you’re looking to achieve in your home, you have a variety of options available.
If you’re looking for a grunge, industrial look then opting for a smoked bronze or matte black pull bar style handle will give you this exact desired effect, particularly if you pair this cabinet hardware with a fresh lick of paint or wood stain over your furniture pieces. Upcycling will never tire and allowing yourself to explore this option makes it easier for you to make the transformation without having to entirely redesign your home.

- Updating Your Curtains
Curtains really do make a statement in any room of the home. If you like your décor to be neutral and very tasteful you can transform the space by incorporating new curtains to bring in some life and perhaps a small pop of colour. If colour isn’t to your taste, you can introduce the darker, neutral tones to form accent décor and mark a beautiful focal point to your living space.
If your space feels dark, consider purchasing curtains that are light and breezy to allow the natural flow of light and air through the windows into your room. Alternatively, if you’re not a fan of curtains, introducing neutral toned wooden venetian blinds or shutters is a beautiful, crisp alternative.
- Hanging Artwork
Introducing artwork into your home is such an elegant way to transform your style. You can really show a touch of personality this way as well as introducing small pops of colour or darker neutral tones to break up the space. Typically, artwork can replace wallpaper if a full wall of paper isn’t to your taste. You can consider commissioning a piece of artwork or a large mural for any stark, bare wall to add some depth and character to your room.
- Upgrading Your Soft Furnishings
Upgrading your soft furnishings is the easiest way to transform any home. If you have neutral style, you can entirely change your colour scheme by adopting new colours and patterns in your scatter cushions, throws, bedding, and more. Soft furnishings can allow you to introduce pops of colour without taking a paint brush to your wall and changing your whole room. Try to introduce different patterns, fabrics, and textures within your new scatter cushions for a beautiful contrasting effect on your sofa.
