Spring Has Sprung – Easy Ways To Improve Your Home

Now its officially Spring, many of us are looking around our houses and thinking about what we can change to make it feel bigger, brighter and more homely. Have a look below at some of our quick, easy and cheap ideas to make your house feel like a home.

Buy some furniture – Have a look at our second hand furniture showroom in Brighton.

Sometimes all you need to really improve a space is a new piece of furniture. An empty corner can become a useful space with a small cabinet, a hall way can be transformed into a blank space with a dresser – beautiful and handy for storing all those odds and ends, a kitchen that is only used functionally can become a welcoming and usable space with the addition of a small table and chairs.

Add a mirror.

A mirror can transform a small room and give the illusion of space – this is also true of hallways. Whether big and ornate or smaller and simple mirrors really can work wonders for a small space.

Paint, varnish, stain or strip back an existing piece of furniture.

Have you ever looked at a piece of furniture you own, or something in a second hand furniture showroom and thought I really like the shape but I’m not keen on the finish? Repainting or varnishing wooden furniture is easy, with just a bit of elbow grease you can give something a whole new look. Or why not get a chair or sofa reupholstered in a funky pattern or texture to add interest to a room?

Sell some unwanted furniture.

This will free up some space for a new item of furniture or may add the space you need to live your life the way you want to. Did you know that our house clearance services also include buying single items of second hand furniture? We will come round at a time convenient to you and give you a cash price for your unwanted item. We will then take it away either at the time or at a time that suits you – easy as can be!

Give a room a lick of paint.

Changing the colour of just one wall can really make a difference to a room, an accent wall adds a focus and if the colour is well chosen can make a room look bigger


Clutter around a house can make you feel anxious and stressed. By having a good sort through items and removing the things you don’t need – or putting them (after organising!) into a drawer or cupboard can really help. There are literally hundreds of websites to look at offer advice on how to arrange things in your house to improve the Feng Shui of your home.

Have your windows washed.

Clean windows not only look better but they allow more light into your home making it feel fresh and clean.

We hope you have some ideas of how to make your house feel more like the home you want. If you are looking for second hand furntiure or have an item you would like to see than please contact us.
