Design is in the Detail: LIttle Spots in Your Home to Show Some Love*

If you’re a busy mum, or you work from home, your house or apartment is often where you’ll spend most of your free time, so it’s always a good idea to keep your interior space as fresh as possible. By updating areas within your living space, and by giving them some extra love and attention; you’ll be excited to walk through your front door each day. You don’t have to take on a complete renovation project, instead, it’s worth considering little areas at a time. This will mean that where you live becomes more beautiful gradually, and it’s a way of improving your interior on any budget. The following are some ideas, inspiration, and advice for those who want to give a little extra love into their interior, and living space.

Tip-Top Taps
It might be worth taking a look at your taps, and give them them a little TLC, or let’s face it; replacing them completely. Taps and faucets are key pieces that you’ll use each day, so replacing them with fresh versions could actually pay off. The finishes of your kitchen and bathroom taps should be in keeping with the style and period of your home; that way they won’t look tired or generic. There are plenty of ways to source affordable and characterful tap; check out online auctions and reclamation yards so you can get your hands on some copper beauties, or something you love. Make sure they’re functional and fitted by reputable plumbers like Mr. Rooter Plumbing so that you needn’t worry about any late-night leaks or dripping. Radiators don’t just heat your home; they can be another design-savvy way of expressing your home’s history and style, so put thought into buying one; this is another time that the internet will be your BFF, so get searching for something you love.

Opening-Up
Opening any door in your home, whether it’s a cupboard door or the entrance to a room, should feel great; why should getting cereal out be boring and mediocre? You’ve already decided to push or pull the door open because you want to get to what’s on the other side; so imagine if the process was even sweeter. The knobs and handles that adorn your home’s doors should feel pleasing in your hands, and be beautiful to boot. Think about colours and finishes, along with if you want sturdy metal to grasp, or if you’d prefer a decorative ceramic knob that oozes vintage charm. Open the door (sorry) to Pinterest, and get a handle (sorry again) on your doorknob options; these are things you can collect over time, and update all at once or bit by bit (depending on your personality-type).

Cosy Comfort-Spots
Surely, it’s time to sit back and relax? But wait; that battered old cushion your leaning on totally deserves an upgrade. So do your curtains and rugs. Oh, and that chair in the corner has seen better days. You don’t need to fork out a huge amount of money all at once; the beauty of soft furnishings is that you can invest in them bit by bit, and it allows you to enjoy the process of gaining design inspo and sourcing your favourite styles. Updated the soft bits in your home will create a lovely interior, and it’s perfect for those who rent, and can’t carry out permanent changes.
