kitchen and dining area

If you are looking to undertake some home improvements this summer but do not want to opt for large-scale renovations or remodeling work, then this article will be of great benefit. Three key rooms will be considered in detail and subtle additions that give these spaces a new lease of life will be discussed. For many people, key rooms such as the bathroom, kitchen, and master bedroom can go for years without benefiting from subtle upgrades or improvements. Many of these modifications can be undertaken on a modest budget but will help to transform the feel and functionality of these spaces allowing them to keep up with modern trends in home improvement.

The kitchen

A simple but highly effective solution to give any kitchen a new lease of life is to update the color schemes of the cabinets and walls. Modern color schemes can give a contemporary feel to any kitchen and can quickly transform the overall feel of the space. If you are looking to add light to a kitchen, warm shades of white are very much on trend in 2022. However, it is important to buy paint that is hardwearing and easy to wipe clean for kitchen use, as splashes and spills can quickly tarnish the overall appeal of white walls. Shades of deep blue are popular choices for modern kitchens as they promote feelings of calmness and tranquillity as well as look elegant and contemporary. See here for more color scheme trends in 2022 for kitchen use.

Upgrading your kitchen with style doesn’t have to involve any paint at all if you don’t want it to. There are some simple yet effective tricks that work. For instance, another key way to upgrade your kitchen that will benefit its daily use is to invest in premium quality cutlery. Look for sterling silver sets that will add a touch of sophistication to any mealtime and can form the focal point of a dinner party table.

The bathroom

The bathroom is often overlooked in terms of upgrades and finishing touches but is a space that greatly benefits from such improvements. Consider adding in some household plants that thrive in a warm and moist environment to instantly give a relaxing touch of nature to bath times. There are a wide variety of plants that are suitable for being placed in the bathroom. Popular choices include ferns such as aloe vera. This plant also has practical uses, as its leaves can be used to soothe minor wounds and cuts, making it a beautiful and incredibly useful plant to have in the home. 

Another ideal upgrade is to install a voice operated speaker in your bathroom that can allow the streaming of millions of tracks. Put simply, bath times can be a far more enjoyable experience when relaxing to calming or ambient music.

The master bedroom 

The master bedroom can be subtly upgraded with a few simple steps. Firstly, it can be a perfect idea to install a dimmer switch to control and vary the intensity of light in this room. In the morning, most people require reasonably high-intensity lighting to change and get ready for work, whereas, at night, softer, warmer lighting is perfect for reading a favorite novel or being intimate with your partner. Relaxing color schemes are perfectly suited to the bedroom, and using muted or neutral colors can allow this room to become a haven of tranquillity.
