New Year – New Home – With Gorgeous Oak FurnitureJamie Smith
With the over-indulgence of Christmas out the way, the beginning of a new year often inspires many of us. In fact, most of us make a fresh start in January with a whole host of New Year’s Resolutions – whether that’s to get rid of old oak furniture, clear out the shed or go to the gym. However, many of resolutions fall to the wayside as the year progresses, which can be for a number of reasons.
Is your home the problem?
Interestingly it isn’t just your self-motivation that can play a role in keeping enthusiasm and dedication up to ensure those resolutions are a lasting feature, not just a flash in the pan. Your home environment, where you spend a large amount of your time, can have a huge influence on your mood, motivation and well-being. This is why we suggest that if you have grand ideas for New Year’s Resolutions to make 2017 the best year yet, you should also look to make significant changes in your home too. This includes bringing in oak furniture to upgrade your space.
More often than not, a change really is as good as a rest, but the changes don’t have to all be big ones to make a real difference. When it comes to changing your home that will work towards improving your life and outlook, a little goes a long way.
To start with, it’s a good idea to focus on a particular room so you don’t become overwhelmed with the tasks and lose interest. Start by looking at the areas you spend most of your time, such as the bedroom, living room or kitchen. These are the spaces that have the greatest potential to boost your morale. You can then plan piece by piece – incorporating great oak furniture and extra special touches into each room.
An obvious place to begin the journey of creating a new home – without the expense of moving house – is to replace old, tired furniture. Even if you repurpose it to another room in your home, updating your oak furniture will have a dramatic impact.
For example, with new oak bedroom furniture, you can make sure every day gets off to a positive start. You can easily create a blissful bedroom you love. Investing in quality pieces that suit your style will give you a sense of pleasure, even when you’re reaching for your running gear on a cold, dark morning.
Add a splash of colour and texture
Another simple and very effective way to create a new look and feel in your home is to add a splash of colour and different textures. It doesn’t matter if the change is subtle or bold. By adding a new colour scheme and different textures into your home, such as oak furniture or plush fabrics, you can instantly make a room feel fresher and brighter. Start small by adding new soft furnishings in a different colour. Or, apply a simple lick of paint to update for a noticeable transformation.
