Owning your own home is a fantastic feeling but it can be made even better when you stamp your own mark on the property. Of course it’s not easy getting on the property ladder; you will need between 5% and 20% of the property value.
Unfortunately this can leave very little in your kitty for home decorating, which is why you need these 7 decorating ideas:
1. Revamp The Kitchen
Ripping out the kitchen and replacing it is an expensive option but it is possible to recreate your kitchen without spending a fortune. The easiest way to achieve this is to replace the cupboard doors and the worktops. Add in a coat of paint and it will be completely transformed. If you are able to spend a little more it is worth looking at some custom kitchen joinery options.
Your couch might be starting to look tired but that doesn’t mean you need to replace it just yet. Providing it is still comfortable simply invest in some throws. Make them bright and add matching curtains and you’ll be surprised at the difference in your room.
3. Go Natural
A little touch of the outdoors can make any room feel larger and brighter and the best thing is that it costs virtually nothing. Add a couple of large potted plants and a feature piece for your table and relax!
You don’t have to be an electrician to change the lights in your home. A new shade or adding several up-lighters can transform the light in your room. You can make it bright and airy or more intimate. Include a dimmer switch in your redecoration and you’ll be able to create any ambience you like.
5. Mix It Up
A great way to add your own flair and redecorate your room is to keep your dining room or kitchen table but replace the chairs with miss-matched ones. This will make your rooms feel more homely.
6. Shiplap It
If you’re trying to redecorate a room with bad walls then you’ll need to dry line it and then decorate over the top. This can be a lengthy and expensive process. Instead you can create a cozy feel by using shiplap. There are many different options in terms of material and colors; you can really place your own stamp on any room by doing this. If you’re thinking of being a little different then do it horizontally instead of vertically.
The easiest way to add your own mark on any space n your home is to use rugs. This will save you the expense of having to replace the floor and you can match it to the color of the throws and curtains or mix it up by going bold and bright.
The choice is yours, providing you choose things that you like, not the ones that you believe are fashionable then you’ll create a beautifully decorated home without having to spend a fortune!
