Plan ahead to get the look you want in your home for a fresh start

Reynolds Blinds help you plan ahead to get the look you want in your home for a fresh start. Read on to find out more.

A new year is the perfect time to make a new start around the home and achieve the look you really want for your home.

To make the most of the motivation (and remaining holiday time) in early January give some thought to what needs to be done and what you want to replace throughout December so you can hit the ground running.

It is important to have a home that you love coming back to and that inspires you. Walking in each night and thinking the curtains don’t match the carpet or the walls need repainting does not make for a relaxing evening.

Take a bit of extra time to look for inspiration through interior design magazines and search online for the latest trends or looks that interest you.

Then work out what you can afford and how much time making the changes will take.

Get inspired for a new look

While finding inspiration in magazines can be really helpful if there is a look you have had in mind for a long time it is best to stand firm and go with your own scheme.

Use the time before the New Year to check colour swatches and test paint out so that you know exactly what you want and need to revamp the room.

When updating the interior of your home, curtains and blinds are important to consider as windows are generally focal points, with your choice of covering becoming a backdrop in the evening.

Use blinds and curtains to update your interior

If you have curtains in place consider whether blinds or shutters may look better, or vice versa, would you prefer curtains to blinds?

Blinds are particularly well suited to looks such as:

  • Scandinavian
  • Minimalist
  • Industrial

With a variety of materials available blinds can look fantastic as well as being highly functional. Modern blinds such as Allusion Voile blinds and Vision blinds bring a crisp new take on innovation and really look the part.

Homeowners may want to consider curtains if they are focusing on a more cosy scheme such as:

  • Bohemian
  • Shabby chic
  • Farmhouse

As well as bringing additional colour to a room the choice of fabric curtains works to give a cosy finish to any room.

Keep the bigger picture in mind when drawing up plans for an interior update and make sure the windows are covered!
