The New Year always feels like a time for new beginnings, with the promise of brighter, longer days on the horizon and endless possibilities stretching ahead of us. However, it’s also easy to feel the pressure, promising ourselves that this will be the year we’ll become the ultimate gym bunny, learn a new language, take up more hobbies, win Bake Off… you get the idea.
Well whilst we’re all for being ambitious, if you’re feeling a tad daunted why not try something more straightforward like a little 2020 home refresh? It couldn’t be easier, especially with the help of our new Refresh Your Home collection. Our experts have assembled a superb range of bedding, home accessories, cleaning gadgets and more from the brands you know and love, so you’ll find plenty of inspiration to transform every room in your home.
To get you in the mood for making over your space, today we’re focusing on five spruce up ideas that will instantly refresh any home! Let’s get started…
Set the scent
We adore scented candles and reed diffusers for lifting a room and creating a certain ambiance. Whether fresh and crisp or deep and seductive, they really enhance the feel of any space. You’ll find some gorgeous options in the range including this Natures Gift Red Rose Gel Candle from Stoneglow. It looks, as well as smells divine, featuring a beautiful bouquet of dried flowers around the inside of the glass.
Upgrade your bed
Kick the New Year off properly with a top-of-the-range bed update. After all, sleep is a serious business and it’s only fair that you treat yourself to the best when it comes to bedtime. This mattress and optional divan base from Sealy is certainly a treat. The mattress boasts the brand’s Quantum Edge spring system for an incredible level of comfort and the divan base comes in a choice of four contemporary colours that will go with any decor style.
Ideal for the winter months, this Four-Piece Spot Duvet Set from Cozee Home is another great option for refreshing your bed. The Plush and Velvetsoft fabrications make it super soft and cosy, ready for snuggling up to sleep in.
Do a ‘New Year’ clean
Move over spring clean, a New Year spruce up is the next big thing. Whether you’ve hosted over the festive period, have been busy visiting family or simply had a well-earned break from the housework, it is normal for any home to be looking a bit tired post-Christmas. So if you’re feeling ready to get stuck in, we’ve got a variety of handy cleaning and storage solutions to help freshen up every room, like this Three-Piece Storage Set from The Camouflage Company.
A thorough clean isn’t complete without a decent vacuum either, and Dyson’s V11 Absolute Cordless Vacuum Cleaner is one of the best around. It works on both carpet and hard floor, plus transforms into a handheld cleaner and back again in just one click, so no surface is left untouched!
Re-dress the living room
As one of the most lived in rooms in the home, refreshing the living room can do wonders for transforming the feeling of your whole abode and it doesn’t have to mean anything big. Bringing in a new rug like this chic Grey Scandi Shag Rug from Nourison is a brilliant way to uplift a space.
Adding small decorative pieces such as flower arrangements are excellent for tying everything together for a harmonious look too. Peony offer a fantastic selection of faux flower displays and we’re loving this arrangement of lifelike hydrangeas, berries and foliage in a glass Chelsea vase.
Protect your mattress
2020 is the year we truly look after our possessions to make sure they last as long as possible. We’re all guilty of getting excited over new purchases, only to quickly discard them or not take as greater care once something even newer comes along. You may have invested in a new mattress or are looking to increase the lifespan of an old one, so a good protector or topper is a must.
This Airmax 600 Mattress Topper from Silentnight is made with anti-allergen fibres that have been designed to help combat dust mites and bacteria and boasts the brand’s deepest ever hollowfibre construction, offering superior support, comfort and breathability. It also has features a pocket of air between its layers to help provide extra insulation and softness. Talk about clever!
