Home Makeover for the Holidays

If you've got guests coming to stay for the holidays and you're looking to give your home a quick and easy makeover, we offer a few simple ways to tweak your living space.





For many, holidays can be a stressful time, especially if you have guests coming to stay over and want to give your home a makeover. Mention makeover and the word alone can evoke high levels of stress way before any thoughts of the results that can be achieved. That makes the idea of simply tweaking here and there far less stressful more appealing, and it's possible to do so without much effort.



Here are some easy ways to restyle your home without much effort and in far quicker time than you might think.






Create a Feature Wall

If you feel that painting an entire room is out of the question, why not paint one wall and make it a stand-out feature. It's far less time consuming than painting an entire room and will have the same effect at giving a room a fresh, new look.






Re-arrange your Furniture

A room setting can become boring after a while, and simply moving furniture around can inject some life into the space. It's also a great way to clear out any pieces that don't need to be in the room and allow those pieces that stay to shine.






Add an Area Rug

Inject pattern and texture into a plain room with an area rug. It's amazing how a patterned rug can immediately add interest to any room. Choose colours for the rug that already feature in the room, to tie the look together.






Refresh with Nature

Every home needs a pot plant or two, especially if your home doesn't have access to an outdoor garden or balcony. A few potted plants will improve indoor air quality and bring a touch of nature indoors. Even if you don't have a green thumb, there are plenty of plant varieties that survive with very little care.






Finish the Look

Replace faded and dusty curtains with a window treatment that pops. You will find a selection of curtains, rods and tie backs at your local Finishing Touches, or ask the guys to make a custom window treatment for your home.





At Finishing Touches you can choose between ready-made blinds in assorted colours including, silver, white, woodgrain, or go for a natural look with bamboo Roman blinds that can be used on their own or in combination with a layered window style. Finishing Touches also have a selection of custom made blinds that cater for all styles, in various designs and fabrics to complement your windows. Choose from Aluminium Venetian Blinds, Panel Blinds, Roman Blinds or Vertical Blinds.
