With a new year comes change. We all begin thinking up New Year’s resolutions and inspiring ideas. For some of us, the changes we aim to make are in our home. Making some home decor changes doesn’t have to be daunting. In fact, you might be surprised to learn that you can easily make a change in every room in your house, just by making a few simple purchases.
The finished look will result in you having spruced up your home for the new year, without changing every aspect of your design or interiors.
For the kitchen, don’t worry about making major changes if they are not really required. You can avoid any major kitchen renovations by updating your worktops. Paint your cupboard doors or add some new decor to the kitchen in the form of accessories and gadgets.
In the bathroom, you could consider re-painting or creating a themed room. Choosing cleverly linked color schemes will tie the look together well and could create a style statement. This will allow you to get the luxury bathroom you deserve, on a budget.

If you living room needs updating then changing the sofas or purchasing a new coffee table might be just the thing you need. New cushions and pictures in stylish frames are fairly inexpensive to buy and create a real statement look.
Your dining room is often the hub of the house and the place where everyone comes together to eat. Consider purchasing new tableware or if you want to put your stamp on something then why not design your own napkins? This is a really easy way to add some personality and your individual style into your home.
Home offices are fairly simple to decorate. You can simply buy some new office wall art or some cute stationery holders. Pretty notebooks on your desk will add a pop of color to your office and will also aid your productivity for the year ahead. This is a win/win situation.
Think about creating a storage area for any clutter. You can buy various shelving units that can either be placed around the room or serve as room dividers. Both of these options make a big style statement on a small budget.
You don’t have to keep your New Year’s decor boost to the home. You could extend it to your garden and make some stylish changes. Think about ways to make your garden multifunctional. You could consider starting a small vegetable patch or building a shed.
These are both options that will see you gain rewards from your efforts and can make the garden look tidier and well-kept.
If you have children, you might want to consider fun and bright garden toys or brightly colored accessories that will encourage them to use the outside space more.
