The Five C’s of Simple Home Revamps

(Collaborative post by another author) Now that the days are getting shorter and the nights are drawing in, many of us are looking forward to hunkering down for the winter, with lots of brilliant TV box sets, warming food and good company to help us on our way.

But when you look around your home, do you sometimes worry that it looks dull and downtrodden, to the point that spending even more time there fills you with dread?

If you’re nodding your head, don’t despair – check out our five C’s of simple home revamps instead! 

1. Carpet cleaning

Replacing carpets and sofas costs a small fortune.

But you can achieve an eye-popping transformation by hiring a professional cleaning service like Aquarinse – their prices are reasonable, and this is one job that it’s worth getting a pro to take care of. Once your carpets and sofas are dry, you’ll be amazed at how good they look – and feel relieved that you didn’t bother buying new ones! 

It can also be worth adding a good underlay (if there isn't one already). It can be a hassle, but makes a difference when people walk around the house," comments Ruban Selvanayagam of London-based auction house / finance providers Property Solvers.

2. Curtains

Switching up your curtains to match the season is a great way to alter your domestic ambience inexpensively. 

There might be rooms where you prefer a heavier set of drapes to keep warm and cosy, while blinds can let much-needed light into darker areas in order to lift your mood – let common sense and good taste be your guides! 

3. Crack repair

With wind, hail, snow and sun making their mark on our home exteriors (sometimes in the same day!), it’s no wonder that unsightly cracks appear before long and the longer you leave them, the worse they get.

However, with a pro crack repair kit from Direct Building Products, you can fill any gaping abyss with ease and even match the filler colour perfectly to its surroundings. After you’re finished, you’ll swoon rather than groan every time you pull up outside your home. 

4. Cupboard clear-out

Decluttering your cupboards is wonderfully cathartic, restores a sense of control and is extremely empowering. 

You’ll discover handy items you forgot you had, donate unwanted gadgets to charity and finish the job feeling that everything is balanced and ship-shape. If you want to find out more about the transformational power of tidying up and clearing out, take a look at some heart-warming Marie Kondo videos on YouTube. 

5. Cosy corners

Creating a warm and comfy spot to rest and recuperate is essential – especially during long winters when your energy reserves are sometimes lower than usual.

You can create an ad hoc space to read and recharge your batteries with some plump cushions and stylish throws – take a look at these cosy corner tips from Atlantic Shopping for inspiration! 

So there you have them – the five C’s of simple home revamps. Choose whichever look most effective for your domestic environment and make some moves today to enhance your domestic domain. With a little effort and a modest cash investment, you can adapt your home so that it’s a space you’re always cosy and comfortable in, all year round.
