The holiday season will soon be over and we should all go back to our usual year-round schedules and work plans. The end of the summer will be the best time to freshen up your home so that you feel better in it during the upcoming months of the year.
Here are 5 easy ways to instantly give your home a fresh twist!
1. Rearrange your furniture
Rearranging furniture is the easiest and most budget-friendly way to have a fresh start at home. Redoing home layouts is easy and free. So, feel free to move furniture around. Just make sure to follow these basic rules: follow the traffic flow, consider a conversation area and make it comfortable and cozy, and do not block natural light with furniture. As days are getting shorter, you will need more of it.
2. Refresh the worn-out furniture zip-off covers
Getting new zip-off covers is more budget-friendly than getting a new sofa and it surely offers the twist you are looking for. Nothing will give a fresher look on your furniture more than new and colourful covers.
Be creative with the old ones and do not just throw them in the bin. You can incorporate them in many creative projects.

3. Swap out the old throw pillows
Throw pillows do make a difference! And they can instantly freshen up your living room area. You can only get new covers but it’s totally worth it investing in new pillow inserts as well. All-natural fillings will give you the comfort you deserve during your afternoon naps. Polyester-filled pillows will keep you head and neck all hot and sweaty since they are far from breathable. All-natural cotton-filled cushions will offer the relaxation you need and deserve – offering support and extreme breathability for cool and dry naps.
Don’t go shy with the colors of the throw pillows. If you are feeling adventurous and ready to mix and match, we’ve got you covered with our vibrant fabric and color swatches.
4. Invest in a new rug & bet on a natural one
Rugs and carpets can give your space a new life. They will instantly add warmth and character to any room. So, if you would like to redefine your living area, there’s no better way to do it rather than with a rug.
Not all rugs are created equal, however. As anything petroleum-based, synthetic rugs will often off-gas toxic chemicals in the environment and will also help dust mites thrive. That is why it is better for your health to bet on all-natural rugs: cotton, jute, sisal, seagrass, wool, or hemp.
5. Spruce up your bed
You spend a third of your life in bed and that’s why your bed deserves to be turned into a centerpiece to remember. If you’re looking to spruce up your bedroom interior, there’s no better way to do it than by updating the headboard of your bed. The easiest way to do that is by adding a headboard cushion. Now, with Cottoned on your side, it is easier than ever to add a headboard cushion over your bed. Basically, you do not need anything but a wall against the bed and we’ve got you covered from that point on. We specialize in creating custom headboard cushions for all kinds of beds. As soon as you have a wall to attach it to, you will be all set, even if the bed itself does not have a wooden headboard base.
