Easter weekend marks the start for many homeowners digging out their toolboxes and rolling up their sleeves to tackle long overdue jobs. Typically, this can involve a lot of work which can be stressful. However, the trick to an easy fix is knowing exactly what you want.
To help you, we have put together a few ideas to guide you through your renovations:
Add a Rooflight
A rooflight is an easy and cost-effective way to add some natural light into a room and provide a modern update. The rooflight can act as a focal feature, especially if you like a minimalistic look, due to the amount of light coming from it. A loft conversion will also benefit greatly from a skylight as they give the illusion of space to an otherwise small area.
Lighten up your colour palette
Light colours and whites reflect natural light better than darker colours. So, a good tip is to paint walls in cool tones to maximise natural light and bring some of the sunshine and energy of the new season into your home. Use colours such as blue – greys, whites and yellow and coordinate your furniture to suit.
Make the most of a small space
Exploit the often-under-utilized space between the tops of furniture and a room’s ceiling with hanging or high- mounted elements. Take bookcases or cabinets all the way up the wall – it’ll make the room feel higher. Pair with mirrors throughout the space to make it feel larger, lighter and airier.
