If your home is looking a little dated or you just fancy a bit of a change, read on to discover some of Broadview designers’ simple ways you can give your home a facelift.

1)    Replace your drab curtains or blinds

Ok, so we may be a little biased on this one, but our customers are often truly amazed at the difference new, made to measure curtains and blinds make to their home. As the window is one of the main focal points of any room, the window hangings are one of the first things we notice which is why replacing old ones for gorgeous new ones is such a transformation. 

2)    Update soft furnishings 

Updating the accessories we decorate our home with is a great way to see immediate results and keep up with the latest interior design trends. You don’t even need to buy anything new. Simply swap cushions, rugs, pictures and other accessories from one room to another. 

3)    Rearrange your furniture

One of the simplest, and most cost effective ways to transform a room is to rearrange the furniture. Before you start, carefully think about how you use that room and how the furniture can be positioned to make even more use of the space. Try drawing out your new layout to make sure it will work before setting off. 

4)    Breathe new life into a room with fresh paint 

Though it involves a little more work than our other tips, a new coat of paint will refresh and breathe new life into any room. What’s more, depending on your chosen scheme, it’s an easy way to give the space a whole new feel and purpose (and match your brand new curtains and accessories). 

5)    Mix up your photos

If you’ve ever struggled to decide which photograph deserves to be displayed in pride of place, then you’ll love this next tip. Swapping the photos in your frames is a subtle, yet highly effective, way to inject a pop of new life into a space. We suggest rotating your photos every month or so to keep interest high and effort low.
