(CNBNewsnet)(July 30, 2018)--If your home décor is looking more drab than fab then it’s time for a home makeover. Upgrading your décor can make your home feel nicer to be in and also more interesting for your visitors. Here are some helpful tips to get you started.
Start with the Basics
Flooring and walls are where you ideally want to begin with your redecoration. Start by removing all the furniture from the room and really assessing the size and shape. For smaller rooms, you can really overhaul the way they feel by brightening the walls. You don’t have to stick to a boring beige, as you can use popular colors like pastels and duck egg blue.
You can also think about how to best use the flooring that you have, perhaps with a rug or a new varnish. Hardwood floors are incredibly versatile, as they can be sanded down and repurposed with a new finish. Epoxy flooring is also becoming more popular, as an untraditional way to cover a floor. This creates an interesting finish and can even modernise an older floor.
When you have all of the furniture out of the room, it’s time to decide what you’re going to keep and what you’ll ditch. Getting new items of furniture can drastically change the feeling of a room, especially if you’re splashing out. A new sofa is a brilliant way to create a new mood in the room. Find a website that has a lot of styles and fabrics to pick from to help you do just that.
Choose Interesting Items
As you select interesting items to be placed in the room, it gets more of a sense of personality. Quirky items that show off your personal style are ideal to give your room a little something different. If you’re an avid DIY enthusiast then you can even make some new items that are one of a kind.
Keep your eyes peeled for these kinds of pieces, as they will create the mood of your home. Ideally, you want to carry one or two themes through the whole of the home, creating a more cohesive design. Use pops of colour and bright metallic to draw the eye to your favourite elements.
You may buy these items for one room but then feel they work better in another. As long as you’re not too married to a certain design, you can switch these up as you please. It’s all about finding the right items for the right space, so don’t be afraid to experiment. Going in less traditional routes may also suit your personality better, as it’s your home you want it to be all about you!
Whether you’re going for a total home overhaul or want to improve just one room, these tips will be sure to help you out. Above all, you want to create somewhere that you enjoy living, so think about what you look for and what would make you feel at home, the chances are your visitors will feel the same way.
