So, you have a house and you don’t feel that the style of the property reflects you. This is mainly down to the traditional and drab vibe of the decoration and it really needs updating, bringing into 2014. Sound about right?
Whether you rent or own a property you need to be able to put your stamp on it somehow, find out below creative ways we recommend modernising your interior.
Renting: Industrial Furniture
If you’re currently renting then the easiest way is to update your interior is to buy statement pieces of furniture. The Trade Furniture Company
have a great range of industrial style furniture which is really on-trend and quirky. Key items include the Iron Wheel Coffee Table, Industrial ABC Drawers and Industrial Iron Stools. These are high quality and ideal for the rustic look, so you might want to consider them as investment pieces for when you have a house of your own.
Renting: Wall Decals
If your landlord wont allow you to paint or wallpaper your home then wall decals can be a cheap and easy alternative. You can buy these wall stickers with a range of patterns or writing on them. All you do is simply stick them onto your walls, when you are finished renting the property they should easily peel off. They are really cheap and popular examples include tree branches, quotes and birds. You find loads of options online from companies such as The Binary Box
who also have a guide on their website of how to implement stickers in your home.
