Get a glow up

You can create a whole new ambiance with just the flick of the switch. Changing your lightbulbs or lighting fixtures is a really simple way to make an impact on the way you feel in your space.

A room looks best with multiple sources of light - from natural sunlight streaming through uncluttered windows, to ceiling light casting down from above. Play with the colour and vibrancy of your lighting too; use smart bulbs that you can control with your voice assistant to illuminate, change hue, and dim to set just the right mood.

Out with the old

Every home has got a piece of tired looking furniture that needs a new lease of life. That dressing table with the flaking paint, the coffee table with the water marks, the bookcase that’s seen better days. All it takes is a little inspiration and the right paint, and you’ll have a gorgeous feature without breaking the bank.

Our GoodHome renovation paint is the perfect choice for an upcycling project. It’s self-priming meaning less preparation is required and that the paint adheres better. In a nutshell, it makes the application process a whole lot easier.

Grubby to gleaming

While we’ll admit this might not sound glamorous, we know that greying grout is a common complaint that can bring down the mood of your bathroom. There’s a simple solution that will bring back the shine.

A grout pen will revive those yellowing lines, and they’re really easy to use, just like any other pen. Forget scrubbing your fingers sore, just pop off the cap that you’ll be done in half the time.

Little touches with a big impact

Wall hangings, ornaments, and art can bring a touch of elegance. From framing your own photos and making a gallery feature to filling side tables with beautiful candles, these touches can transform the aesthetic of your space.

Canvas art is the perfect way to liven up an empty wall, try grouping together smaller pieces to make a mismatched masterpiece. Copper ornaments are on trend, but don’t be afraid to use different types of metals in the same space, this creates a modern feel straight out of a magazine. You’ll be the envy of Instagram!
