When you’re at home everyday, it can be hard to get perspective on how to refresh the look of each room and give a bit of a boost to your home furniture.
However, getting inspired and updating your home can be huge amounts of fun and you’ll enjoy compliments galore from friends and family when they see the end results.

If you’re struggling to get inspired, follow our top tips:
Think About You
There’s no point going for furniture that is super modern, minimalist and utterly impractical to your needs if you’ve actually got a gaggle of children, pets and a busy lifestyle.
Similarly, you may not need huge sofas and childproof materials if you’re a young professional to whom sleek design is a priority. Think about what’s right for you as a first step to getting inspired.

Collect as many ideas you can. Seek inspiration everywhere you go. From journeys to cinema trips, to art galleries and parks – take pictures of colours you like or patterns that get your attention.
Once you’ve collected lots of images and samples, you can start to create mood boards to help get an idea of the type of home furniture that might work for you.
It’s really important to consider the space that you have available as this will be one of the biggest factors in determining what’s feasible and what’s not with your home furniture. Think how much space you need and how much space you can create by changing the layout of rooms or subtracting or adding furniture.
If you want to have everything tucked away in hidden drawers, you’ll be going for a certain type of home furniture. If you want everything displayed on shelves or surfaces, you’ll be looking at something different.
Work out how you want to store your things – and then work your home furniture around that.
Colours and Textures
Once you’ve got the practical parts out the way, the fun really starts. You can decide on the colours and textures that you want in your home and start to find the home furniture that really matches this style.
Patterned or plain? Luxury or Basic? Soft or rough?
There’s an endless amount of choice out there so mix it up, have fun and enjoy the process of watching your dreams come to life!
