Freshen up your curtains
If your curtains are looking a bit tired or letting too much light in, update them. That does not necessarily mean buying new ones. You can easily line the ones you already own to make them thick enough to keep the light out. Trimming the edges with contrasting fabric and updating your curtain ties is a really easy way to change the way they look.
New soft furnishings
Adding a couple of rugs and maybe buying some nice cushions is a great way to freshen things up. You can even make your own no-sew covers and rugs. There are loads of videos online that show you how to make all kinds of soft furnishings without having to get your sewing machine out.
Update your lighting
Improving the lighting is a great way to make a room feel instantly better. Doing this does not necessarily mean that you have to install new light fittings. Sometimes all you need to do is to update the bulbs. For example, install modern LED dimmable bulbs.
Tidying up any room makes it look instantly better. So, if you have not done so for a while, throw or give away anything you are no longer using. Put everything else away. If necessary, put some items in another room, the loft or your garage.
