If you’re hoping to head into 2018 with a real sense of change and progress, one of the most exciting things you can do is give your home a makeover. Even the simplest of adjustments can make a world of difference, such as upgrading your home with brand new fittings and decor. WonkeeDonkee XL Joinery specialises particularly in internal and external doors as well as attractive external gates, so we know better than most how to spruce up your home for the year ahead with a few comparatively minor but extremely impactful changes.
- Combat the wear and tear
If you feel your home is looking a little rough around the edges, it may be due to the typical aging that its specific elements experience. Skirting boards, doors and paint coverage are just a few elements that may be vulnerable to scratches, scuffs and marks, so something as simple as a new coat of emulsion can really work wonders and make your house feel brand new again.
- Try out a facelift
You may be looking for your home to give a whole new impression – one that can be seen from right across the street. A new fence or gate, finished however you choose, can turn pulling into your driveway after work into an inspirational experience. Your garden itself can be revolutionised too; invest intelligently in landscaping and a well-researched roster of plants, and see your surroundings flourish throughout the seasons.
- Find more space
As the years pass, many people find that they are living with more and more clutter, bringing with it a developing sense of claustrophobia. Freeing up space in your home does not necessarily mean throwing away all your treasured possessions, however. There are many ways to make your home feel more expansive and less packed. Many householders decide to combine two spaces into one, knocking through a wall between the kitchen and sitting room for example. This change can even be made temporary and adjustable by setting up stylish room dividers. Bi-folding doors are also an excellent option as space savers, as instead out opening out into a room – which demands space to be available into which the door may swing – they simply fold back, allowing improved access and the reclamation of a good portion of a room.
- Make the most of the light
Glass is becoming increasingly popular within household fittings, and this is partially due to homeowners becoming more environmentally minded and conscious of energy wastage, but also a result of the current trend for minimalism. A move as simple as replacing your solid front door or interior doors with designs featuring glass paneling can make a world of difference.
