How is your house looking right now? Do you have some jobs to do? You know how it is, those jobs you’ve had on the list for ages which would just transform the way your rooms look. Taking your space from slightly above average to incredibly elegant?
A Fresh Coat Of Paint
Start off the elegance with a brand new coat of fresh paint. Whether you keep the same colour or choose something completely different, a new coat of paint brings a room to life. If you’re not keen on what’s currently on your wall, think about what colours mean and what they do for a room, before you start painting in them. White is a great base for a room, especially if you’d like to make it look bigger. Black can be used in a space without making it look gloomy. Yellow is perfect for a happy welcome to the home. Elegant colours you might consider include jewel, ruby, emerald and sapphire, even if it’s just for a feature wall.
Make Your Heating A Feature
Speaking of features, how do you fancy turning your heating appliances into stunning standouts? You don’t need to choose the same old boring radiator found in every other home on the street, in your neighbourhood. You can select something unique. Head to Feature Radiators where you can discover modern, traditional and contemporary radiators which create impact. From designer radiators and even electric radiators, there is something for everyone. The true elegance comes with cast iron radiators in amazing styles, sizes and colours. A bold and beautiful Etonian 6 Cast Iron radiator is the perfect elegant addition to a bay window or alcove.
Add Some Chairs
Adding elegance to your room doesn’t have to be expensive. A unique piece of furniture with a story to tell can add some luxury. Sometimes it’s the small things that matter and timeless furniture can be found in the most unusual of places including charity shops and thrift stores. If your space is looking disconnected, some elegant accent chairs can bring it together.
Raise The Roof
Whilst you might enjoy a good party, we’re not talking about that here. Nor are we talking about lifting the roof to give you more headspace. Using illusions, you can create the mind-boggling effect that the ceiling is higher than it actually is. Simply by having floor to ceiling curtains, the room looks taller and you add some elegance with beautiful and floaty fabric.
Accessories & Artwork
Real elegance comes with personal touches and this includes the accessories you place around your space. Accessories are a great way to add change, drama and elegance to your rooms without spending a lot of money. Consider new mirrors, candle holders, light fittings and coffee tables. Don’t forget artwork to grace your walls. Key pieces can complete your room and a spectacular canvas of a phenomenal sunrise in the landscape could be exactly what your wall needs.
Your house needs to be your home and sometimes we rush to make it something it needs time to become. This can be where it so often goes wrong. From the outside paving to welcome guests, to the photo frames housing important pictures and statement rugs in your living room, don’t forget that true elegance is simplicity. It might just be one stunning piece that creates the impact you desire. Take your time to decide and create something that makes you happy.
