Every so often we desire to tweak our homes to give it a fresh new look. Most people shy away from doing anything because it’s usually associated with a considerable budget. Without breaking the bank or dipping into your savings, there are small but significant things you can do to update and transform your home. Some of these take the same time your husband requires to go to and fro a men’s barber shop.
Sometimes the best way to transform a space is to remove furniture, not add. Let’s work with the living room. What items do not have functionality or aren’t serving as a decorative piece? Whatever is old, falling apart or just doesn’t work in that space does need to be cleaned out. You could donate them or sell them. The latter option will facilitate the purchase of minimalistic items that instantly update your area.
We often get excited about the decorating stuff but decluttering and cleaning out junk is harder. It is well worth it and a necessary step in creating a space you love. People and their taste change as well. Don’t be afraid of letting go of what you don’t like any longer. One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.
Add an architectural twist
The reason why we fall in love with historical sites and other unique architectural buildings is that their unique designs stand out. You don’t have to knock down walls to achieve this architectural interest. The adding texture walls, a board, framed photographs, a mural or ironwork can quickly, simply put, make a place look more interesting.
Think of your favorite spaces; do you like Victorian designs or does something futurist suit you? There are both creative and cheap ways to bring these aspects to your house.
Sometimes you don’t need new items. Sanding and repainting an article is one quick way to change your home decor. Do you love a particular piece of furniture but the color just isn’t doing it for you? Depending on what you’re going for, a dark or lighter vanish can do the trick. You can create an elegant or playful space by using paint. You can repurpose furniture and move it to a different room where it’s needed.
What you require is inexpensive. Paint, spray paint, sandpaper and varnish are some of the things you can purchase to transform your space. If you have children, you can turn it into a fun family activity.
It doesn’t have to be Christmas for you to transform your home to suit the season. There are decorations you can add for each season of the year. During winter you might want to coop your sofa nearer to the fireplace, but for spring and summer, you might want it closer to the windows. Moving furniture around takes no time at all. You can also add plant decorations in your living room area. When they’re not in use, you can always keep them in your garden.
