That is why you should not delay improving the aesthetics of your living space. It is easier to do than you might think. You do not need a particular skill. A little will and persistence works. To make your house transformation quicker, follow the useful tips below.


1. Make it simple

Simplicity perfects just about anything, including your living space. Pay more attention to minimal and essential elements in the home. Also, leave the rest of your space free from dirt, marks, or stains by regularly cleaning with a best vacuum cleaner. Allow maximum movement of air and light inside by decluttering from room to room.

2. Get rid of clutter

Decluttering is one of the essential steps for home improvement. Like with other things in life, you need to clear old things which are not helpful anymore and allow for new fresh ones to fit as well. In case there is plenty of work to be done in the house in terms of this step, you should not tire out yourself. Begin by deep cleaning your bedroom one day and then give equal devotion to other rooms on other days.

3. Make a wise choice with the colors

Focusing on earthen hues (a lot of brown) in the house is a great idea. Make sure you select the lighter color shade to make the room look and feel airier and brighter. If you do not prefer brown, think about green, yellow, or so on as other best options for naturalistic looking decoration.

4. Use limited spaces creatively

Understanding the functional advantages of the style for your house is necessary. It should shed light on simplicity as well as functionality. Try and make a perfect balance between these two factors by using available elements in your space aesthetically.

For example, if your kitchen is small, you can rely on a light color range and kitchen accessories to make it look bigger. Also, multipurpose elements in the kitchen work to decrease clutter and attain the cleanliness.

5. Bring life to your walls with artwork

If you do not desire to do much with your walls, then artwork is an ideal choice. Ensure you put the frames up when placing them. Do not hang them too low or too high. Ideally, they should be at the average level of the eyes looking straight ahead.


A final note

Artistic activities, including home improvement, are a rich source of happiness. The tips mentioned above help style your space quickly and effectively. Keep the elegance, simplicity, and enhanced functionality in mind. Also, have a vacuum cleaner available to ensure your home’s cleanliness.

    The biggest mistake I see lots of people make is buying a bike that doesn't have clearance for proper mudguards, and then attaching sh*t mudguards with tiny clearances that rattle and rub on the tyres. Think very carefully about whether you're likely to want mudguards on this bike; if you are, make sure your frame has sufficient clearance to mount proper ones.

    It's quite common to fit your mudguards in the Autumn and remove them in the Spring, which is what I did before I got a dedicated commuting bike. Those a*se saver things are about as much use on a bike as an ashtray.

    Bike type - If you are just doing road riding, get a road orientated bike. If you are venturing on to gravel tracks, cycle paths, canal paths etc get a Cyclocross or gravel type bike. When you need extra tyre width, you need it whether it is 10% of the time or 90%. The difference between the two types on the same tyres is only going to be 0.5MPH or so any way.

    Components - I would aim for Shimano 105 (10 speed). As thing wear out you can upgrade if you want. The difference between that an the higher levels is basically just weight anyway. Something like Tiagra (10 speed) is really good but if you fancy upgrading to 11 speed then you have a lot of components to change. Wouldn't go less than 10 speed unless money is tight or you just want to try it out and may upgrade later.

    Frame - You are a big lad, if you are happy with steel then spend the savings on better components. Certainly wouldn't bother with carbon. However, it is worth looking out for a carbon fork for the added comfort.

    Discs - Personally I am never going to buy another rim braked bike again. When I jump from my disc braked bike to the rim braked one it takes me a few miles to get used to the worse braking...and the rim brake bike had Dura Ace brakes with upgraded pads. If going disc, try to go hydraulic as less maintenance.

    Mudguards - If you going to be riding in all weather make sure the bike can fit proper ones. They really transform riding in wet or muddy conditions.

    Flat bar or drop bars - Personal preference really. You need to try both to decide. At the cycle club I belong to we have mostly drop bar bikes but when the occasional flat bar bike turns up they are no slower in reality, certainly not in lower speed categories anyway.
