It can be hard to know exactly where to start when it comes to home renovations -  whether you are looking to make small, impactful changes or undergo a complete renovation. Nevertheless, renovating your home can help you make the most out of the space that is available to you while increasing its value should you wish to sell further down the line.

With that in mind, here are some simple (and cost-effective) ways in which you can add the WOW factor to your home! 

  • If you want to live in a luxury home without spending a fortune, focus on the smaller details that can truly transform the space. For example, a bold art print or wall hanging can turn an otherwise simple room into a chic and sophisticated space. 

  • Wherever possible, keep the design simple and sophisticated. This can help give your home an effortlessly classy feel that never goes out of style. It also makes it easier to switch things up whenever you feel as though you need a change. 

  • Consider installing bi-fold doors, especially if you have a garden area. This can truly open up a room, creating the illusion of more space. To find out more about bifold doors, click here.

  • Instead of splashing out on overly expensive furniture,  focus on buying one statement piece for each room. For example, you can make your bathroom appear more luxurious by installing a free-standing bathtub.

  • Find a way to add different textures into your home to create a real ‘wow’ factor. For example, you could add wooden panelling to your walls or a series of throws and cushions to your couches and sofas. 

  • Visit local charity shops or browse online selling groups in search of the best possible deal when it comes to furniture. Buying second hand is a great way to save money and is kinder to the environment - and there often many hidden gems just waiting to be discovered.

  • When designing a room, try to create a cohesive colour palette so that every item compliments each other. Avoid choosing colours, textures or patterns that clash with other items that you already own. This will make the overall space much more visually appealing.

  • Flick through some interior magazine designs or blogs before getting started. This is an excellent way to source inspiration, especially if you don’t have the best eye for detail yourself. 

  • Changing up the lighting is another way in which you can add the wow factor to your home. For example, you could swap out heavy curtains for lightweight blinds, allowing you to introduce more natural light into the space. Alternatively, you could source statement lighting fixtures such as chandeliers to create a more luxurious vibe. 

  • Plants, flowers and greenery are another great addition to any home and can add a lot of life and colour to an otherwise dull space. If you’re worried about managing to keep plants alive on a long-term basis, you could always purchase fake greenery to achieve the same effect without having to take care of them moving forward.
