Six Ideas for Sprucing Up Your Interior

How to give your home a design makeover, without the designer price tag

Is there a space in your home that bothers you? Maybe there are some pieces in the room that you are no longer happy with, or the colour scheme is outdated, or you just feel that it needs a breath of fresh air.

Take a look at some of these great ideas for stunning, but inexpensive makeovers, from the team at Spotlight. With stores across Australia, New Zealand and Asia, as well as an online store, Spotlight offers stylish design options for all areas of the home at affordable prices.

1. Love your lounge

Some years ago, we were told that a neutral room was the only way to go. But sometimes neutral is just plain boring. Introduce some colour accents to perk up a neutral palette and give your living area a whole new lease of life. Cushion covers, lampshades, and maybe some new curtains or art for your walls can transform your look, without costing the earth. At Spotlight, their curated collections make it easy for you to put together the latest trends or let your imagination run free by mix and matching from the extensive range of décor including rugs, cushions, wall art, storage and more.

2. Go bold in the bedroom

On average, we spend one-third of our lives in our bedroom. Just think about that. One-third of your total life spent in one little room. With that in mind, is it time to update your bedroom and transform it into a place you look forward to coming back to every day? Start by giving your bed pride of place with a stunning new quilt cover, and take it from there. Scatter cushions, rugs, a throw or even some new bedside lamps can all help to create a restful haven to relax at the end of the day, or a vibrant space that makes you want to leap out of bed to enjoy a new day.

3. Cook up some colour in the kitchen

Don’t renovate; redecorate! Give a slightly tired kitchen a fresh makeover with some new kitchen appliances, and pick out those colours in your blinds, utensils or chair covers for a whole new look. Whether you go for the retro look or prefer a more streamlined, industrial style in your kitchen, you will be spoilt for choice with the kitchen appliances available at Spotlight.

4. Everything in its place

We all do it: we collect far more things than we need and clutter up our space. As every estate agent will tell you – clutter detracts from your home. It makes it harder for people to appreciate your interior, it makes rooms look smaller, and it can even affect the value of your home. With the wealth of gorgeous storage options available these days, there really is no excuse for clutter! Wicker or rattan baskets, an ottoman or footstool with storage, or colourful cardboard boxes can hide your clutter while adding a colourful or interesting focal point to your interior at the same time.

Coloured towels

5. Banish the bathroom blues

One of the easiest, cheapest and most satisfying ways to breathe new life into your bathroom is to buy some new bath towels. The feeling of big, fluffy towels around you when you step out of the bath or shower is pure luxury. And while they are not in use, they can brighten up your bathroom either hanging on rails or stacked up in a cabinet. Coordinate the look with a matching bathmat, and invest in a new shower curtain and some bathroom accessories, and every day will feel like you’re in a five-star hotel.

6. Roll out the red carpet

Well, it doesn’t actually have to be red – it could be blue, green, multicoloured or even a neutral shade. Adding a rug to your living room, bedroom, dining room or hallway can instantly transform the look of the space and may also save you from having to invest in more expensive flooring. At Spotlight, you’ll find a wealth of different rugs for all rooms in the house including kids play mats, hallway runners, and stunning designer rugs for your living room.

With these great ideas, it’s easy to transform your home into a new and more interesting space you’ll love to be. Whether you want a quick, easy update or a complete makeover Spotlight has everything you need to make your home look and feel its best.
