When those Christmas decorations finally come down (and I know that some of you have already done this, although traditionally they should be up until 12th night), the house looks decidedly bare. But the very bareness and sparseness after the Christmas excess makes it the perfect time to make a few home updates that will have your home all ready for 2019.
Take a look at your floors
Floors are, by their definition, one of the most hard working parts of your home. They see lots of wear and tear, spillage and general use that means they can begin to look tired and in need of some TLC. If your home is carpeted and you happen to have young children and pets this can be very noticeable, and this is why many people are now moving towards alternative kinds of flooring, including wooden and natural floors.
Companies like Lifestyle Flooring offer a wide range of Clearance flooring in a range of styles including Karndean, Amtico and laminate which means you can update your look in an affordable way. If you have a little more to spend, Kahrs flooring offers engineered wooden flooring from a prestige Swedish brand and could totally change the look of your room.
Look at those walls
Sometimes all it takes is to add a touch of paint to update your home and make it look fresh and clean again. Walls are another part of the home that shows wear and tear for all to see, especially if you have young children who mistake the wall for a painting easel, or somewhere to smear their chocolate. Simply splashing your walls with a cream or magnolia paint can make a room look light and fresh.
Shop the Sales
The sales are a great opportunity to get updates from your home with massive savings. All the big home and retail stores have huge sales, ranging from furniture to soft furnishings, and so adding new cushions, curtains, candles and bedspreads can help you to create a whole new look that will totally lift the post season drabness.
If you have a bigger piece of furniture that you need to replace,then this is the time to look with a range of great offers, and some buy now, pay later deals available if you are still paying off Christmas.
