Simple tips for an interior makeover this winter

Simple tips for an interior makeover this winter

The change of seasons can be the perfect time to give your home a makeover. The good news is that you don’t need to spend an exorbitant amount of money redecorating your home. Below are some helpful tips to help you decorate for the cooler months.

Simply rearranging your furniture can give your room an instant lift. Winter can be a great time to create cosy nooks and personal spaces. But before you start moving couches, tables and other furniture, take some time to plan where you will shift the furniture to.

As time passes it can be amazing how many objects don’t return to their proper place. It can even be the new possessions that we accumulate but don’t really have a place to store them. Look over the rooms of your house, and see what really needs to be out on display and what you might be able to store away.

Add some pops of colour into a neutral pallete with various accessories. Throw cushions, picture frames or rugs can add a burst of colour as well as interesting focal points in a room. Alternatively, you can find inexpensive prints from homeware stores that can add colour and style to plain walls.

Use light
The winter months offer the least amount of natural light. One way to counter this is to make use of lamps. If you are able to use warm yellow light producing bulbs, they can bring a feeling of warmth as well as light. Lamps also work as a great way to add interest to a room and act as a focal point.

RBA decision could lead to continued market strength

RBA rate hold: 2.00%

Century 21, the largest real estate sales organisation in the Asia Pacific region, believes the Reserve Bank’s decision to keep interest rates at two per cent will likely continue to support the Australian property market in this dynamic time in its history.

"The low interest rate environment has assisted in strengthening the real estate market in many regions over the last three years," said Century 21 Australasia chairman and owner, Charles Tarbey.

"I believe that we may begin to see a wave of growth move from areas that have experienced high levels of growth into outlying locales that have not moved at the same level during this time.

"This wave of growth could open up new opportunities for buyers," concluded Charles Tarbey.

In their announcement, the Reserve Bank noted that although the Federal Reserve is expected to increase rates later this year, other major central banks are continuing to lower rates.

Century 21 encourages potential buyers who are looking to purchase real estate to ensure they have obtained the appropriate professional property and finance advice before doing so.
