Through our bespoke interior design services, we have had the pleasure of designing some of the most beautiful homes, offices and commercial spaces in Malta and abroad.
Below, we have come up with a few simple changes to re-charge your home this spring.
Get your lighting right
As spring draws near, the cold, dark mornings and nights will soon be left behind for another year. However, even though the days will be longer, it is still very important to make sure that the light in your home is just right. In fact, studies have shown that light and health are inextricably linked.
In places where you need to groom, such as the bathroom, make sure that there is plenty of light to save straining your eyes. In places where you choose to relax, such as the bedroom, make sure to go for a blend of bright lighting with the option to dim it when looking to chill. Using dimmer switches would be the best option as you can turn the lights up when getting dressed, but turn them down when relaxing or watching a movie.
Paint the celling
Yes we know, we have said it a million times, but there’s nothing like painting a boring whitewashed celling a bold colour to add a fresh new dynamic to a room.
Be careful to consider the furniture colour beforehand though.
Build a gallery wall
If you have pictures dotted all around the room, take them down and rehang them as a gorgeous gallery wall. Read our recent blog – How to create the perfect gallery wall – for tips.
Add a little bling
Add a little bling such as a stunning gold lamp or a luxurious statement mirror to jazz up a room in your home this spring. By introducing a little bling, you can instantly liven up a room at very little cost or hassle.
Block out the spring sun
As mentioned in point one, brighter spring days will soon be upon us so it is important to get the right blinds or curtains to block out the sun when you want to relax.
It’s also very important to get your blinds and curtains in order now before the blazing Mediterranean sun makes a full comeback.
Start fresh with new tableware
At LOFT, we have a gorgeous selection of Flamant tableware that is sure to beautify your dining table this spring. Sometimes, something as simple as replacing your tableware can instantly refresh the look of your home, especially the kitchen. Pop in to take a look at our stunning collection.
Add a pendent to the hallway
Add a talking point to your hallway by installing a stunning pendant near the door. Try something eye-catching and cinematic like these stunning Pols Potten pendants we currently have available at LOFT.
Give purpose to a lonely spot with a houseplant. Some low-maintenance options include: jade, which flourishes in sunny areas; delicate asparagus ferns for indirect lighting; and philodendrons and peace lilies for dimly lit nooks. We have some beautiful vases available at LOFT. Pop in to take a look.
Change up your wallpaper
Wallpaper and wall coverings have made a strong comeback over the past few years. With a huge selection of wallpaper and wall coverings available, it can be the quickest and easiest way to completely change the look of a room.
At LOFT, we supply a stunning selection of Cole & Son wall papers and wall coverings. Pop in to take a look.
Invest in a rug
Not only do rugs provide much needed warmth in our cold Maltese homes, they also provide a simple way to instantly jazz up a room. Flat weave rugs are not only great for winter, but also look and feel great in summer too. For those of you who regularly read our blogs, you’ll know that we are massive advocates of Linie Rugs.
