Easy Ways to Transform Your House
Colder weather is coming and it’s during this time that we begin to examine our home looks, and consider what we would like to change. For some that will mean a significant remodel, but for the most it implies smaller changes that are aesthetic; things which can be done at a very low price.
We would like to provide tips to transform your home quickly.
Add color and change the appearance and feel of a room. You choose an accent wall to highlight a focal point in a room, or may paint a whole room. For inspiration, select color from an area, a piece of artwork or rug that you love. Get a pint of the assorted colors if you’re having trouble deciding on what color to paint and set up samples in the room.
What we mean is that you should rearrange the furniture.
One way to begin is to determine the rooms’ focal point. Frequently it’s a fireplace. You’ll want to organize your furniture to dramatize your point. Don’t have a point? Use this as an opportunity.
Go shopping in your own home; you might be amazed at what you find.
We become accustomed to viewing certain parts of furniture, artwork and accessories in specific rooms of our dwelling. By putting your objects in areas and new spaces you can have a ‘new’ room. The nightstand from your guest room might be a brand new side table in your living room. Mix it up, you have nothing to lose. There is a space more interesting if there is a mixture of styles and furniture.
Add a Rug
Houses in the valley have open rooms that flow into one another and a rug can define a room. Area rugs also add a space that is otherwise neutral in tone and texture and color. Additionally, the acoustics in a room that has flooring material could be softened by adding a rug. Be sure you layout your furnishings (either physically or on paper) if you are going rug shopping. In this manner, you will understand what size of the rug will probably work. Always bring some choices to home when you shop for a local rug. The carpet will look very different on your room than it will in a shop.
Often what are missing from a space are the smaller things that give it exceptional character. The accessories. Accessories can be a blend of new and existing items, things that exist on your home that hold memories, or better yet, brand new items. The definition of an ‘accessory’ is extensive. It’s everything to plants and mirrors from candlestick holders and vases.
