Good Homes – 6 ways to reinvigorate a tired sofa

As a purchase that can often set you back a considerable amount of money, buying a new sofa is, for many, a long-term investment. As a result, it’s no wonder many of us grow bored and uninspired, leaving us searching for ways to give our sofas a new lease of life. In this article, Good Homes provides a series of tips and tricks on how to transform your old sofa, ensuring it can adapt seamlessly with the rest of your space as your style continues to evolve.

The appearance of a sofa can completely change the look and feel of a room and, as a result, it’s vital that yours works well for your space. As Good Homes explains, replacing cushions and throws is a simple, budget-friendly method to update your sofa, as is adding different textures, such as a faux fur throw, which can also help to conceal any stubborn stains or spillages! If your sofa has seen better days and you’re considering purchasing a new one, Good Homes suggests giving it a deep clean with a steam cleaner before heading out to your local furniture store, as this can work wonders when it comes to freshening up the fabric and removing any stains.

What we love most about this article is how it encourages us all to work with what we have, inspiring us to get creative rather than simply replacing old furniture when it goes out of style. So whether you opt to deep clean your sofa, accessorise it with a footstall, throw or cushions, or decide to reupholster the fabric for a completely new look, Good Homes proves that there truly are so many ways to breathe new life into your tired old sofa, without having to spend a fortune!

These Three Rooms – There’s no need for a small bathroom to be boring

A small space can often be hard to decorate. You want to avoid making it look cluttered and overwhelming, but at the same time, you don’t want it to be boring! A small bathroom can create many interior design dilemmas, which can often leave the room looking less creative than the rest of the house. In this article, These Three Rooms provides eight tips for styling a small bathroom. The ideas left us feeling inspired so we just had to share some of them in our blog post this week!

It is often said that hanging mirrors can create the illusion of space in a small room, and what better room to do this than the bathroom?! These Three Rooms also suggests using a frameless glass door, rather than a shower curtain, to reduce visual clutter. We loved the tip about using larger tiles: small spaces benefit from larger tiles as fewer grout lines mean the room looks bigger! The article also mentions how anything that catches attention also enhances space perception and advises not to be afraid to go big in a small bathroom.

We didn’t expect using pattern to be a suggestion for a compact room, but These Three Rooms has convinced us that this would be effective! It’s made us realise that just because a wall is small, it doesn’t mean it can’t be bold and make a statement. We’ve never considered a feature wall in our bathrooms before, but this is something we’d certainly consider going-forward and would suggest the idea to friends too.

Happy reading!
