Are You Ready To Make One Change To Your Home This Month?

This September is National Home Improvement Month, organised by the British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA), who have found that 56% of UK residents don’t love their home.

Considering how much time we’ve all spent at home lately this is a particularly alarming statistic. The aim of this challenge is to make one change to your home that makes you fall in love all over again and adopt the ‘improve don’t move’ lifestyle. 

It can be overwhelming trying to decide what to tackle first. So that you don’t get put off, we recommend picking something simple but effective. This way you get the maximum impact without becoming burned out with DIY projects.

Here are 3 simple home improvement projects to transform your home:

Refresh your kitchen cabinets

We all know the kitchen is the heart of the home and it’s become so much more than a kitchen – being used as a classroom and an office in recent months. With all the time spent in there, you might have noticed things you want to improve. 

A full renovation of your kitchen may be too costly for your plans at the moment. A more affordable way to update your kitchen is to refresh your kitchen cabinets. Most cabinets can be painted to give a whole new look, or if you’re feeling more ambitious you could change the hardware (handles, pulls, knobs) to update them.

You’ll be astounded at what a simple swap and coat of paint can achieve!

Add removable wallpaper to a wall in the master bedroom

For a quick update to a room, we can’t recommend removable wallpaper enough. It’s a quick and easy way to completely change the character of a space without needing to wallpaper traditionally or go through the fuss of painting.

If you’re always wanted a brick feature wall, this is the easiest way to achieve that. Want to try the art deco trend without commitment? With plenty of options available online you can find the perfect wallpaper to suit your home.

We particularly recommend trying it to create a feature wall in the master bedroom. Geometric prints work particularly well behind the headboard and add real character to your home.

Tidy up your front entrance

We all want to make a good first impression. When it comes to our homes there’s always an element of keeping up with the Jones’ too, whether or not we’d admit it. A simple way to make your home look and feel like new is to renovate your front garden.

Clean all the stone work, add a fresh coat of paint and tidy up any greenery to create a professional looking entrance. If at the end of this something just doesn’t look quite right, it could be your door itself. Old hardware and peeling paint are signs that it’s time for an upgrade. Try a combination of these updates to achieve the new look you’re aiming for.
