Kitchen, Bedroom, Bathroom: 9 easy ways to transform three key spaces
New Year, New Interior Design
Kitchen, bedroom,bathroom: perhaps the three most important, practical and widely used spaces within your home. While you might call your lounge the ‘living room’, research shows that the majority of our living actually occurs within these three spaces.
So why not use 2018 to spruce up your ‘kitchen, bathroom, bedroom’ interior design? We’re going to show you the easy ways to transform these rooms without resorting to high costs and time-consuming renovations.
The kitchen is arguably the most important room in your house. It’s where you cook your meals, spend time with the family and complete the majority of your day-to-day living. In fact, when it comes to selling your home the kitchen is the single most influential room, so how can you transform it without breaking the bank?
DECANT YOUR INGREDIENTS
It doesn’t get simpler than this. If your cupboards are overflowing with ingredients, take out your prettiest spices and ingredients and decant them into jars in order to turn them into a display.
REMOVE SOME DOORS
You don’t have to add things in order to improve your home design — you can take away instead! Open shelving is all the rage in kitchen design at the moment, and it’s a great way to add interest. Why not try removing some cabinet doors from your higher cupboards?
SPACE-SAVING CEILING RACKS
This tip is particularly useful if your kitchen is short on space, as ceiling racks can be a handy way to make a feature of your excess kitchenware like pots and pans. Even if you’re not short on space however, adding a few hanging racks can still be a great way to create individuality.
The bedroom is the first and last space you spend time in every day. It’s your personal sanctuary, meaning it’s important to make sure that the design is a true reflection of you and your style. But how can you achieve this without using up time and costs?
MIX PATTERNS WITH PILLOWS
If you don’t have time to repaint or re-wallpaper, use your soft furnishings to introduce the colours and patterns you want into your bedrooms. Interesting pillows will help your centrepiece — the bed — truly stand out.
KEEP R&R IN MIND
First and foremost, your bedroom should be a restful space; one which relaxes you. Every design choice you make should bear this in mind, so consider little touches like scented candles, comforting textiles and soothing artworks to help you unwind and improve the look of the space.
MAKE IT PERSONAL
Like we said, your bedroom is your sanctuary — keyword: ‘your’. The best way to improve your bedroom design is to make it a true reflection of you and your tastes. Including simple knick-knacks which you love, or which are sentimental to you, will not only add interest but will make your bedroom feel all the more comforting too.
You might think of the bathroom as a purely practical space, but in reality it’s important to ensure your bathroom design is up to scratch. In fact, statistics show that the bathroom is the most visited room in your home, and that we visit the bathroom an average of 2,500 times a year! So what simple changes can you do to make your bathroom a more pleasant place to spend time?
BRIGHT AND BOLD BLINDS
Bathroom blinds are so often plain and boring, but upgrading to a colourful or patterned option can turn your humble blind into a genuine bathroom feature.
HINTS OF NATURE
Fresh flowers are a simple way of adding colour and freshness to a bathroom which is otherwise simple. Not to mention, it gives you a burst of fresh fragrance!
A bathroom mirror isn’t just a practical necessity, it can also be a stunning design addition. Swap out your current mirror for a vintage-style frameless option to add decadence and uniqueness. You can even hang three or four smaller mirrors together to create a display.
