You don’t have to be an avid DIYer to make some upgrades to your home. There are plenty of easy fixes which you can make in conjunction with a little professional help to make your home feel modern and comfortable.

Paint Your Walls

Terracotta may have been the colour trend of the nineties, long painted out by bright white and then a sea of grey, but whenever you want to easily upgrade your home, reaching for a paint brush is a great way to start.

Choosing the right colour to upgrade your home can be a challenge when there are so many dramatic and stylish shades to choose from in the paint catalogues, but Ideal Home explains a bit more about how you could choose the perfect white paint for your project.

And Paint Your Floors

Old-style wooden floors can be rustic and charming, but they can also be more shabby than chic. Giving them a bit of polish with a paint effect, whether it’s lime-washed colour all over or a grey and white check pattern, can be quick and cost-effective to accomplish. Lock in whatever painting you’ve done with a hardwearing floor varnish.


Make a New First Impression

Update your front door and your home can make a new first impression on anyone who comes to visit. Specialists in double Glazing Gloucester company Firmfix supply a large choice of door panels that you can choose from to individually design your entrance door.

With a new door featuring double glazing Gloucester homes can be upgraded quickly, and the new entrance can set the tone for a perked-up interior.

Touch Up Your Tiles

Giving the tiles around your bathtub a scrub, updating the grout to a new colour with a grout pen or freshening up the whole room by replacing the silicone are all great ways to update and upgrade your bathroom.

Update Your Splashback

Painting tiles, adding a coloured glass panel or fitting some stainless steel are all relatively quick ways to upgrade the look of your kitchen. Splashbacks behind the cooker and sink need to be heat-resistant and waterproof but can be made from a million different materials, so it’s your choice about how to design your kitchen upgrade. Kitchen professionals can give you lots of tips.
