Whether you need to quickly revamp your home for last minute guests or simply just want to update your current surroundings to give it a fresh look and feel, have fun with these simple but stylish ideas that’ll have your room looking brand spanking new in days.
1. INVEST IN A NEW SOFA
Whilst it may not be the cheapest update for your home, the sofa is the most impactful change you can make, and it doesn’t have to cost the Earth. You’ll want to take time to consider which styles you like and how much room you’ve got in your living room for the sofa before ordering. If you’re not fully redecorating your home, make sure your sofa will match your current interiors by ordering a selection of free fabric swatches. When it comes to buying your sofa, if you’re short on space opt for an armless one that will open up your space, or opt for a sofa bed that will make way for extra guests with ease.

2. SWITCH UP YOUR SOFT FURNISHINGS
If you don’t want to invest in a new sofa just yet, go for a quick and easy update by switching up your rug and cushions to give your room a whole new look. When deciding on your cushions, go for complementary colours that will match your current interiors with ease. Finish by adding a selection of sumptuously soft throws for cooler evenings and lazy Sundays on the sofa.

3. ADD EXTRA STORAGE
From stylish bookcases, to modern TV units and coffee tables with hidden storage inside, you can never have enough storage in your living room. Start by adding a bookcase in the corner of your home to place books, pictures and stylish accessories on. If you need a place to hide away clutter including throws and extra cushions, opt for a coffee table with a lid that opens up to reveal generous storage inside.

5. ADD AN ACCENT CHAIR
Just because you’re on a budget, doesn’t mean your home can’t be stylish. Adding an accent chair into those empty corners of your home is the perfect update to a room and is great for an afternoon spent reading or simply enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning. Add a floor lamp next to the chair to create a cosy reading nook.
