Your bathroom can so easily become outdated and a bit run down. With so many people using it each day, and so much moisture coming through all the time, it won’t be long before you start to notice the wear and tear of it. The grout of the tiles is most likely going to be the first thing that will start to go a bit funny. If you have an avid DIYer in your house, then they’ll easily be able to sort this out for you. All you need to do is get all the old grout out. Clean between the tiles, wait for them to dry out completely, then lay down some more grout. This can be purchased from your local hardware store. If you’re on your own or don’t feel confident in letting someone who isn’t a professional do it, it should only take a day of hiring someone out to do it.

Then, if you’re looking to change the design a bit, painting is always one of the first things you should be looking to do. As we said, a lot of moisture seems to gather in the bathroom. This is most likely due to the fact of not keeping the windows or extractor open when the steam starts to build up. Tiny little bits of mould will begin to form no matter who’s bathroom it is. A repaint will get rid of any of this. Try and stick to the lighter colours such as cream or white. Once you’ve made these two simple little design changes, make sure you’re letting air flow through the bathroom every time it is used for a hot bath or shower. Wipes down any moisture each time as well to try and protect the grout and mould build up.

Dining Room

The dining room is the one place in the house where your family can gather to share stories of the day and actually sit down as a family. It is nice every so often to make sure there’s a little bit of a design change to keep things fresh and interesting. The first thing you can look to change is the table and chairs. There’s so many beautiful designs out there, and it is so easy for them to become outdated after a few years. It isn’t that expensive to change. Something that is so stylish in the interior design world at the minute is a dark brown dining room set. It gives the room that modern, yet classic and vintage feel that so many people love. If you want to complete the look, you should try and aim for some dark brown or oak sideboard furniture. It’ll be great for storing all your placemats and other bits and bobs you might keep around the house. To add a little bit of elegance to the room since you’re going a bit old school, you could think about the lighting. Most people will just have your bog standard lamp shade, but if you’re wanting to push the boat out a little, then a chandelier style lighting shade is going to really finish the room off. To add a little bit of scent and color, potpourri is a lovely finisher, and there’s plenty of seasonal colours and smells on sale at the minute. All you need is a nice dish to put it in.

Those are just two rooms with simple design changes that’ll really transform the look. None of the take much effort, and all of them will make you feel like you’ve got a refreshed room. Once you’ve tackled those two rooms, you can move onto the rest of the house until you have a perfect home once more.
