Print Friendly

There are many reasons you might want to give your home a makeover. Perhaps you’re hoping to boost the value of your property before putting it on the market. Or maybe you simply want to make a small change to your home décor, to freshen up its style. 

Whatever your reasons, you’ll find plenty of property makeover inspiration online. Keep reading for our guide to the web’s best sites for decorating ideas and tips.

Online magazines with great makeover ideas

Once upon a time, interior design magazines were the place to look for home makeover ideas. But today, many of these magazines have moved their articles online – so wherever you are in the world, you can find property inspiration from a range of sources. The online home section at Easy Living – which ceased its print edition in 2013 – is a fantastic place to start. On this website, you’ll find a variety of ideas, ranging from quick and simple touch-ups to elaborate renovations. Handily, the homepage for Easy Living Home is arranged in dashboard format, similar to Pinterest, so you’re instantly presented with great ideas to browse.

The online edition of Red magazine has a fascinating interiors section too. Here, you’ll see a range of decorating ideas for your main home spaces, including your kitchen, living room, bathroom and main bedroom. But there’s also a plethora of ideas for your children’s rooms, home office and outdoor areas. If you’re planning a total property overhaul, don’t miss their inspirational revamp ideas and DIY advice.

Better Homes and Gardens is one of the best-selling magazines in the US. And thanks to the internet, you can have access to its content wherever you live. Visit this website and head straight to its Decorating and Home Ideas section. You’ll be wowed by the sheer amount of tips you’ll find here, and the site is always updated to reflect seasonal trends and interests. So whether you’re planning a Christmas-themed makeover or you simply want to find the paint colour that’s right for your living room, Better Homes and Gardens could have the answer.

Finding more property inspiration on the web

For more first rate ideas, don’t miss House to Home. This slick website is bursting with home décor inspiration. It’s also run by the same publishers as some of the UK’s leading lifestyle magazines – including Ideal Home, Country Homes and Interiors and Beautiful Kitchens – so you can be sure that these experts know what they’re talking about. Look out for its list of most popular features, so you can see what’s grabbed the attention of other savvy readers.

Don’t forget about TV pundits either: Channel 4, in particular, has carved out a niche for itself over the last decade, with property experts like Kirstie Allsopp and Kevin McCloud making home interior design attractive to people all around the country. Channel 4’s Design Advice website could be the perfect place to find decorating ideas for your home.

Unexpectedly, you can find even more great ideas from property search engine Rightmove. And if you’re looking for DIY and craft-based projects, Martha Stewart’s website has an enviable array of suggestions.
