5 quick interior updates you need for your home

July 19, 2018 By Southpoint Tuggeranong

With it being the middle of winter and a new season fast approaching, now is a great time to give your home interiors a little bit of a revamp.
If you're feeling like your home is looking a little drab and is matching the cold weather outside, why not change a few things up around the home to freshen it up and bring some life back?
Quick fixes like changing light fittings, cushions, throws and artwork can really make a huge difference in your home, especially if you don't have a big budget!
Take a look at these quick interior updates that you can make to your home this season.

Add new lighting
Whether it be via light fittings in your ceiling, or a simple floor or table lamp, changing the lighting around your home can actually make a major difference to the look and feel of any room.
New light fixtures are easy to change around the home, without the hassle of completely redecorating.
Floor lamps can make for great additions to any lounge room or reading nook, and pendants can be hung beside the bed for an industrial look.

Refresh your artwork
Another simple way to change up the look of the room, is to refresh the artwork on the walls.
There are so many affordable artwork pieces available, meaning that you can change it up as frequently as you like, depending on your interior style and the current trends.
We are big fans of pairing two pieces of the same or similar artwork, side by side for maximum effect and impact on a wall. Alternatively, you could even lean them up against a bookcase or side table. This is a great option if you are unable to hang things up in your home too. Image sourced from Kmart

Throws & Cushions
Updating your throws and cushions around the home regularly is the simplest way to mix up your interior styling. With so many varieties, styles and textures of cushions and throws available, you'll have a large range to choose from when shopping for your next addition.
Trends at the moment include rich, darker styles, as well as greys, blacks and blush pinks for throws.
Also, if you're wanting to add more texture to your bed spread, place not one, but TWO throws that are of different styles onto your bed. This will add some texture to your room, and is a great alternative to getting a new donna cover each season too!

Bar Stools & Side Tables
A couple of easy items to add around the home include bar stools for the kitchen/dining, as well as small side tables.
Kmart, Big W and Target each have a great range of side tables and small furniture that is both affordable and on trend.
Add a new side table to your living room, or even beside your bed as an alternative to a standard bedside table.

Flowers
Whether they are artificial or real, flowers can really add a fantastic touch to any home. The power that a beautiful bunch of flowers can have on a room is underestimated.
Purchase a range of affordable vases that you can have on hand to use around the house - and regularly pop either flowers from your garden, local florist or even the artificial alternatives in to give any room an instance lift!
