As the year comes to an end, the holiday season of giving and celebration is yet upon us. What better way to give than to gift yourself and your home a brand new makeover to welcome in the new year? 

These changes can be small or big, depending on your preference but if you’re having a hard time deciding, why not let this article be your guide? Here are 10 different ways you can upgrade your home for new year:  

1. Flooring

Oftentimes, we think flooring may be a hassle or even unnecessary to change when really, it is one of the best upgrades one can have in their home. Not only does it change the entire outlook and ambience, but it also uncovers any hidden damages or potential bacteria that may have been harbouring over time. There are various kinds to choose from, making the possibilities endless. From vinyl flooring to carpet tiles with different finishes and designs, take your pick!

i. Vinyl Plank Flooring or Vinyl Tiles also known as Luxury Vinyl Flooring (LVF)

Vinyl plank flooring is highly durable with the ability to withstand heavy foot traffic, making it an ideal option for when you have the whole family over for Christmas. Furthermore, its low maintenance and water-resistant material is one of the best cost-effective solutions if budget is an important factor to consider. Not to mention, they are easy and fast to install just in time for the holiday parties to begin!

ii. Carpet Tiles

If you’re leaning towards something softer and cozy, you may want to consider carpet tiles. Another flooring option that is easy to install, durable, and low maintenance! Due to how versatile it can be, carpet tiles can be customised exactly to your space and liking. 

You might be wondering, what if I wish to yet have another flooring makeover? Not to fret! Carpet tiles are reusable in many cases. As time passes, they may no longer fit your liking, but it is not uncommon for carpet tiles to be refurbished and used someplace else.

iii. Tiles

If you’re someone who despises cleaning, you should consider having tiles. Tiles are naturally easy to clean, and without the need for harsh chemicals or cleaners but of course, this will depend on the stain. Generally, a clean cloth with warm water will do the trick! Now with tiles, you can have an even more cohesive and clean look as they can be used on both floors and walls.

iv. Broadloom Carpet

Just like how it looks, carpet provides actual thermal insulation. It is comfortable for you and your loved ones to sit, work or play. At times, hard surfaces can get slippery and it’s not fun when you fall. Carpet not only provides a soft landing but also prevents them due to its friction. 

2. Outdoor Blinds

Outdoor blinds are simple yet effective solutions to help create the ultimate outdoor-indoor experience in the comfort of your own home. Additionally, they are great additions to help block out days of Perth’s scorching heat, dust, or wind. With the flick of a shutter, these exterior blinds can turn your outdoor patio into your very own cozy, private sanctuary.

At Jupps, we have a wide range of outdoor blinds to choose from, personalising them to your needs in terms of style, size, and material. As these are not only visually pleasing but functional, we provide high-quality fabrics and textures combinations.

3. Indoor Blinds

With indoor blinds, switching up your decor has never been easier. Say goodbye to long hours of having to reinvent your home when all you could be needing is a pair of indoor blinds to give your living space a new look. 

They can tilt, close fully or open to let the right amount of light into your space or provide you the privacy you need. Unlike traditional curtains, indoor blinds are relatively easier to maintain. If you’re a fan of both, you can even pair them up to complement your existing home interior.

Now let’s look at some smaller upgrades to help complement these transformations!

4. Wallpaper

Wallpapers are one of the easiest ways to create your desired outlook. From different textures to colours and designs, wallpapers now come in a plethora of options for you to choose from. To add depth and dimension to your space, try having a feature wall in your dining area or guest bedroom. Next thing you’ll know, this upgrade will be the talk of the party!

5. Lighting

Having different lighting around the house helps set different tones and aesthetics around your home. For example, recessed lights are the holy grails for creating ambient lighting in the kitchen, creating a sleek look while also being well-lit. 

6. Rearranging your space

This is a cost-effective way to spice up your place while spending little to no money. You’d be surprised how a quick switch of your sofa or shelf can turn your home into another. 

7. Decorative Items

Time to bring out those holiday ornaments and decor you have kept so long in your storage and put them to good use! Together with a little dusting off and polish, these decors add that last finishing touch to your home. 

8. Repainting your walls

It really goes without saying that a fresh coat of paint does wonders to your surroundings. Just like wallpapers, a feature wall of a bright colour not only brightens up your space but highlights the room’s existing focal point. An example would be having that behind your television or the wall behind your headboard. 

9. Furniture

Choosing furniture goes a long way but when you choose the right ones, they make a whole lot of difference. To complement your new floor makeover, take a look at similar or complementary tones of colour and allow your little ornaments and decor to tie it all together. 

10. Plants

Adding little pots of life around your space can really brighten up one’s home and day! These lush greenery would complement well with the woody colours and textures of our vinyl selections to create a perfect oasis in your home.
