Bank Holiday Updates

Bank Holiday Updates

The bank holiday weekend is the perfect opportunity to give your home a quick refresh and with a few old tricks, tired furniture and accessories can be made to look as good as new. This week we’ve rounded up some of our go-to updates, all of which can be completed over a long weekend.

1. Revamp a Chair

If your dining chairs are in need of an update, giving them a fresh lick of paint can make all the difference. Bright hues make for a fun addition, especially for kitchen spaces and you won’t necessarily need to update every single one as a few can really make a statement.

2. Frame Your Photographs

Creating a feature wall full of beautiful photos and prints is a great way to add a personal touch to a room. Frame photos in a group to create a focal point or print pictures in black and white for a streamlined look.

3. New handles

Simply changing the handles on a chest of drawers can transform it in a flash. Pretty ceramic designs will look beautiful against white or pale wood pieces and for those looking to add a touch of glamour, gold or silver spray paint can be used to upcycle existing knobs.

4. Upcycle with wallpaper

There are many ways to incorporate wallpaper into your decorating scheme, besides using it on walls. If a shelving unit or display cabinet could do with a bit of a makeover, apply a bright or patterned wallpaper on the back. We also love how wallpaper has been used on these stairs to create a tiled effect.

5. Repaint your front door

Changing the colour of your front door can instantly change the look of your home and fresh, bold colours are a nice way to add character. Why not also replace the door numbers and knocker a final finishing touch?
