Improving your home isn’t necessarily synonymous with major renovations and large investments. Sometimes, the devil is in the details. Are you considering home improvements? Here are five ideas to get you started.
1. Choose your battles
Improving your home can seem like a daunting task, but you don’t have to do it all at once. Rome wasn’t built in a day either: tackle one room at a time. And make sure to plan ahead to get the best overall result! Don’t know where to start? Here are a few interesting projects to inspire you.
2. Do your research
Not sure which style or direction you want to go for? Do you research and start your project by creating a moodboard. Decide afterwards which items truly catch your eye and what pieces, colours, textures, and materials could serve as the foundations of your design plan. Ideally, you’ll end up with a workable palette of compatible colours, textures and materials that will help you guide future decisions.
3. Install a new floor
A new floor can totally transform a room. It's a quick and easy way to add value to your house, even though finding the right floor is not always an easy task. That’s why we have introduced the FloorExplorer tool: in three simple steps, you will get an overview of the flooring and interior styles that complement your personality.
Changing your floor doesn’t mean you need to spend your precious weekends labouring on your knees with a pile of tools at your side, either. Our laminate, vinyl and hardwood floors are easy to install. If your old floor has an even surface and is non-degradable, you don’t even have to get rid of it: simply add the new one on top! Depending on what floor type you’re going for, bear in mind that you will need to correctly prepare your subfloor.

4. Add a lick of paint
A little paint can go a long way. A fresh layer of white or colour on your walls can do wonders for your living space. Choose the look and feel you want to convey and display your personality throughout your home. Discover some compelling combinations on our page with tips for your interior.
5. Choose the right lighting
Lighting is essential to the atmosphere of a home. A well-lit room is inviting, warm and welcoming, encouraging people to linger. Make sure to incorporate multiple sources of light, consisting of different layers that blend together. Also add a dimmer. These allow for flexibility depending on the time of day or your mood, and they save energy.
And why not add some candles? Candles work in any room, from the living room to the bathroom, their soft glow creating a relaxing and soothing atmosphere.
