In 2017, over 5,470 people moved to Devon from London, and this number has increased ever since, with more people now moving to Devon from London than vice versa. If you have recently decided to move to the area, you are likely to have a vision of what you expect your home to look like, with detached properties, such as cottages, being the most popular type of property in the county. To ensure that you can turn your house in Devon into your dream property, read on for some of the best tips to transform your home.

  • Build a Bespoke Bedroom

Your bedroom should be the most relaxing room of your home, and so comfort should remain your top priority when you renovate your existing bedroom. However, perceptions of comfort are different for every person, and so you should hire bespoke bedrooms professionals who can help you to design a room that suits your home and your own preferences. By installing a bespoke bedroom that has been specially designed for your home, you will be able to create an ideal area for both sleep and downtime. Not only this but if there is a bedroom feature that you have always dreamed about having in your first home, Dayrooms Kitchens offers many of the most coveted fixtures, such as walk-in wardrobes.

  • Opt for Mood Lighting

The right lighting can transform your home and help you to create an inviting atmosphere in every single room. For instance, you can create a warm and cosy lighting effect by investing in salt lamps, which can bathe the room in their orange glow. On the other hand, if you want to feel like royalty in your new Devon home, chandeliers can add some much-needed luxury to large spaces. Additionally, if you would like to have control over your lighting, and be able to change it according to your mood and the effect that you desire, you should install a light dimmer or smart light bulbs. These can be operated remotely to brighten or darken your space.

  • Choose the Furniture and Designs That You Want

If you are one of the many homeowners who are considering moving to Devon, interior design magazines can tempt you with their images of cosy cottages and minimalist apartments. However, the most essential element of turning your house into a home is the ability to choose the furniture and the décor that you want. This will allow you to create a personalized space that will never go out of fashion and that you can love until you move out.

  • Decorate with Colour

Homes can often look dull and uninspiring if you decide to opt for a neutral colour scheme throughout your property. To create your dream home, you should consider decorating with colour instead. There are a variety of ways that you can do this, such as painting a feature wall in bright primary shades or using patterned wallpaper. If you still want to use neutral paints on your walls or flooring, you should think about complementing them by adding pops of colour by installing bright kitchen cabinets, furniture, or soft furnishings.
