Whether you have recently moved into your property or you are looking at making some quick upgrades, Stuart Wylie Decorators in Essex have some quick tips to help you do that.
Making minor changes throughout your home can drastically improve the way you view your home, its value and your quality of living. Without breaking the bank and having to hire the professionals, you can follow these quick changes to really transform your home for the better.
Continuity with Bulbs, Switches and Sockets
Throughout your home you may notice that certain light switches, sockets and bulbs are all different sizes, colours and designs which can not only make your home look a little odd but also be irritating for you living there. By changing all switches and sockets to the same design, you can keep the continuous design flowing throughout your whole home with ease and integrate style and class without making a huge hole in your budget.
Top tip- before working with any electrical item please make sure to be safe and use the required tools at all times.
Your bulbs can also change the overall feel and atmosphere in your home and switching these can be so affordable too. If your old, dated bulbs are incandescent you should change these for a much cleaner light, LED’s and energy saving makes.
“LED is a highly energy efficient lighting technology and has the potential to fundamentally change the future of lighting”, Energy.Gov.
Clean Vent Covers
By taking a quick 10 minutes and cleaning your vent covers, you can create a much cleaner environment to live in and a healthier space to spend a lot of time. If you are making changes to your lighting, it will soon become pretty obvious how dirty your vent covers can really get and the slightest alteration will be noticeable.
Check Your Shower Heads
Shower heads can be one of the most used items in your home but also one of the least looked at pieces at the same time. Without inspecting your shower head, you could be missing rust, lime scale and built up dirt you’ve never even noticed before.
Top Tip – Replacing your shower head will set you back a minor amount and can totally upgrade the feel of your bathroom as well as giving the rest a good deep clean.
Changing shower heads can also help you save money over time because “older heads commonly put out a high volume of water during use”, Dave’s DIY Tips.
Get Handy with Your Door Handles
Your door handles will be used every day at some point and even though they don’t have to be at the height of fashion, your door handles can seriously affect the overall feel of your home. Older brass handles are often attached to the doors when first bought and some homeowners will never change these.
If you are looking to upgrade your home and its door handles, look for something that is both fitting to your interior décor and your budget. There is no need to break the bank with your choices and it’s also a good idea to go for something that can be used throughout the whole home, on both sides of the door for ease of installation and use.
