Change is as Good as a Holiday


We all know the saying, change is as good as a holiday, but the question of how often you should change your home and especially bedroom decor seems to remain unanswered. For some, the exciting, fresh decor change can't come soon enough and keeping the home up to date with the latest trends is essential. For others, decades can pass by with the same Hummels on display. So where is the happy medium and what is a normal time frame for a decor makeover?

How often should you update?

Changing up your home decor is usually a free-flowing process, as your personal taste and colour scheme preferences change. A good time frame is every four years but that number is not set in stone. What may be appropriate bedroom decor for an eight-year-old will quickly become juvenile and boring for a ten-year-old. Adapting a room as time progresses to suit those who sleep there will ensure a relaxing and comfortable space away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Updating is key:

A complete room transformation is not necessarily the key to redecorating a room. There's no rule that once the four, five, or six-year mark hits that everything needs a makeover in a single weekend. Updating the accessories in the room, applying a fresh coat of paint, or investing in a 'WOW' piece such as a new mirror or wardrobe, will refresh the room and give it that revitalising element which is so sought after.

Not everything needs to change:

Redecorating a room can be a major undertaking and can get very expensive. Keeping the walls, floors, and wardrobes or storage areas in neutral colours can help to keep those expenses down. Using accessories to incorporate the colour scheme you'd like for the room can save you money as well as give you the freedom to decorate more often.

Changing an environment, especially a room can help you to express your decor style and create a relaxing place for yourself. Getting tired of your interior design is normal and the decor can start to become draining, which is why it's important to keep your decor updated and refreshed.
