Easy Tips to Transform Your Home
Colder weather is here and it is during this time that we often begin to examine our houses, think about what we would like to change, and the appearance. For some that will mean a major remodel, but for the most it means smaller, aesthetic changes; matters that may be done quickly, at a low cost.
We would like to offer easy tips to transform your home quickly.
Add color and change the appearance and feel of a room. You may paint a whole room, or select an accent wall to emphasize a focal point. 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.
So that it is not against the walls, what we imply by that is, rearrange your furniture.
One way to start is to determine the chambers’ focal point. Frequently it’s a fireplace an architecturally interesting piece of furniture like queen size bed sets. You’ll want to organize your furniture to dramatize your point. Don’t have a focal point? Use this as an opportunity.
Go shopping in your own home; you might be surprised at what you find.
We become accustomed to viewing certain parts of furniture, artwork and accessories in specific rooms of our dwelling. Simply by placing your things in new spaces and areas you can have a ‘fresh’ room. The nightstand from your guest room might be a side table in your living room. Mix it up, you have nothing to lose. When there’s a mixture of furniture and styles, a space is always more interesting.
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, color and texture. Furthermore, the acoustics in an area which has flooring material can be neutralized by adding a carpeting. 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. When you shop for a local rug, constantly bring home some choices. The carpet will look very different on your room than it will in a shop.
Frequently what are missing from a room are the smaller things that give it distinctive 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 is everything from candlestick holders and vases to plants and mirrors.
