The Home Garnish – Adding a Little Finesse to Your Home’s Style

Home style

Owning a home is a matter of pride. After all, you’re working hard to pay it off five days a week, sometimes six (or seven!) so it makes sense that you’d want to look after it. Even if it’s challenging to find the time to invest in beautifying your home, just a few hours a week can make a difference if you add it up over a year.

But do you feel that you are a little stuck for inspiration when it comes to how you can spruce up your living space? Fear not, for we’re about to explore the home garnish and learn how you can add a touch of finesse to your home’s style – so read on to find out more.

Update Your Garage

Is your garage just a place to store your car, with a few tools lying around, a tired roller door for entry and an oil stain for decoration? Lift your game and install a sectional garage door. These automatic garage doors can come in a range of materials, colours and tones and will give the outside of your property a much-needed facelift. While you’re at it, tidy the inside, install some tool racks or shelves and scrub off that oil stain. A garage is a great place to work and tinker as well as store your vehicle so take some pride in it.

A Fresh Lick of Paint

When was the last time you painted your house? For most, their property hasn’t seen a touch of paint since before they moved in. So get down to the hardware shop and grab some sample pots and see what changes you can make to your walls. There are heaps of options, but you’ll want something that matches your decor and your vibe. Neutral palettes are an easy, no-frills option but some people prefer warmer colours or even a smooth, cool look. Avoid dark colours as these make your home seem small and cramped.

Art and Decor

Do your walls look threadbare and neglected? After you’ve given them a fresh coat of paint they deserve some tender loving care as well, so invest in some choice artworks to adorn them. If you can afford originals – great, you’re supporting an artist as well as decorating your home. If not, that’s fine because prints work just as well. While you’re at it, consider some other decor options. Throw cushions are a great choice to liven up your furniture, and a well-placed sculpture in the corner or on a side table will add a hint of class to your abode.

Don’t Neglect the Garden

If you’re lucky enough to have some outside space, then you can put in a bit of work to get it looking great. Choose bright flowers and tidy shrubs and a well-manicured lawn if that’s your thing. If you don’t have any garden space don’t despair, you can create a green paradise inside your apartment or unit by buying some indoor plants. Here’s a tip though for those without a green thumb – don’t overwater your indoor plants, as this is the quickest way to kill them.

A Cultured Conclusion

Spruce up the exterior of your home by renewing your garage door. Liven up the inside and outside with a fresh coat of paint, and invest in some tasteful art and decor that matches your vibe. Finally, spend some time getting your garden looking great, and if you don’t have a garden, you can collect some indoor plants to add a splash of green to your place.
