7 Genius Remodelling Hacks for Your Home
Keeping your home interior vibrant and exciting can be a challenge. Whether you’re on the hunt for ways to create more space or looking for a complete room overhaul, when it comes to interior design – there’s no ‘one size fits all’ rule. But from injecting some personality into your property to transforming tired spaces, a little attention to detail can go a long way.
Today we’re delving into the world of interior design and residential architecture to bring you some handy remodelling hacks. From innovative space saving solutions to easy ways to brighten up your home, we’ve got you covered.
Whether you want to tuck away your unsightly accessories or display an impressive book collection, your stairs offer the perfect storage solution – and won’t take up any extra room in your home. By building shelves into the side of your staircase or adding drawers under your steps, you can maximise space in the home and keep your trinkets within easy reach.
Chalk it up
Chalkboard paint can completely transform your home, turning any surface into an instant blank canvas. Whether it’s a bedroom wall for the kids or a painted fridge to add your weekly shopping list to, this quirky addition to your home can perk up the dullest of rooms – and offers a fun way to communicate with the whole family.
Shabby chic shed
It’s not just the inside of your home that could benefit from a touch of TLC – your garden will appreciate the attention, too. With some tiny tweaks and a lick of paint, your tired garden shed can be transformed into the summer perfect hideaway. From creating a private reading area to a play den for the kids, your shed can be so much more than storage space.
Despite being one of the rooms we spend the most time in, when it comes to the bedroom, many of us neglect design. From the way you position your bed to your lighting choices, each aspect of interior design can have a profound effect on the way you sleep. If you’re a fan of natural light, replacing your bedroom window with a Juliet balcony will allow the light to flood in and give you instant access to all the fresh air you could need – not to mention providing additional aesthetic appeal from the outside.
Whether you have a smaller garden or are blessed with bags of outdoor space, adorning the outside of your property can be expensive – but for the more creatively minded, some simple pallets can be transformed into a stunning seating area. Easy to get hold of and even easier to assemble, pallets can be used to spruce up your outdoor area and provide the perfect talking point when guests visit. Add some eye-catching cushions and a stylish throw and your garden furniture will make you the envy of everyone you know.
Hang out in a hammock
Sticking with seating, hammocks are the last word in comfort and the perfect accessory for any home. Whether you’re looking for a cosy reading chair or the perfect place for a snooze, hammocks have any number of uses – and when you’re not sitting in them, they can be used as handy storage spaces, keeping your odds and ends from cluttering up your floors.
Rack ‘em up
If storage space is holding you back from having a home you love, there are plenty of ways to make the most of the space you do have. Whether it’s your bathroom or bedroom that could benefit from a touch more space, you can find inspiration from the most unlikely places. If your kitchen is on the small side, adding hooks or shelves to the sides of cupboards or walls can provide ample room for smaller items and keep dangerous kitchen tools out of reach from children.
