But most of the time, your problems can be fixed with a couple of simple tips.
Read on for 11 ways to reinvent your home. Enjoy!
Add A Fresh Vibe With A Bright Wall
Adding a bright wall to a neutral room in your home can instantly add a fresh feel and vibe. This looks great in rooms like the bathroom, where you perhaps wouldn’t expect to see a bright wall.
Use Contrasting Colors
Your home doesn’t have to be a big mess of rainbow colors to use bright colors in the right way. Using contrasting colors can look lovely if you do it right. So, let’s say you have a mostly neutral room with shades of white. How about selecting a bright chair, before adding a cushion in a contrasting color? Nearby, you could hang some pictures that include these colors to make the area look like a bit of a feature of the home. Use a color wheel if you’re not sure which colors contrast one another best!
Look At Your Pictures And Artwork
Adding a couple of your favorite pictures and some artwork to your living area is a great way to add some ‘lived in’ personality to your home. You want it to look like you actually live there, don’t you? Every home should have artwork included too – it doesn’t have to be ridiculously expensive, and there’s bound to be something you like if you take your time to find it.
Incorporate Some Statement Accessories
Statement home accessories are just as important as adding statement accessories to your outfit. Choose ornate mirrors, unusual lamps, and other unique items to make your home stand out.
Include More Life
Maybe your home doesn’t feel right at the moment because you haven’t included any life in your decor. Plants and flowers are an absolute must, as they instantly brighten up a space and make it look more cheerful. Plants have even been shown in studies to cheer people up and purify the air!
Make A Few Changes
Moving is pretty expensive. When you think of how much it’s going to cost you to hire an agent, advertise your home, sell it, whether you’ll get the money you want to get, and then buy another home and deal with all the fees on that end – it can leave you pulling your hair out not knowing where to turn! Why not make a few changes to your home instead? Professional home builders can help you to come up with plans for your home, whatever it is you want to change. You could add a kitchen island to make your kitchen a more social space, knock out a wall, put up a wall, add a room – whatever you think is necessary. Often, this is a much better option than moving.
Change Your Lay Out
Changing your lay out is totally free and easy. It can take just a few minutes or a few hours depending on how far you want to take it! You can even use apps online that will help you to see the best space-saving ways to lay out your home providing you have the right measurements. Maybe you could even pay attention to feng shui and do it that way. Who knows? It could completely change the feel of your home.
Get Rid Of Clutter
Are you a bit of a hoarder? Does clutter plague your life everywhere you turn? Don’t let it be this way any longer! Vow to get rid of clutter and you should find that you have both a clearer head, and a clearer home. Give things to charity, or to friends. Sell them, and use the cash to buy new things for the house. Whatever you do, think carefully: if something isn’t useful, beautiful, or both, then it shouldn’t be in your home at all.
Don’t Neglect The Outside
Neglecting the outside of your home when giving it a makeover is one of the worst things you can do! Make a plan for the outside of your home, even if it’s small. Can you add some lights to make it safer and prettier? Maybe you could paint your front door a cool color, and add a nice letterbox. Planting a few new flowers could also be a good idea. It all depends on how much you think needs to change. In some cases, you may want to contact a landscaper.
Add A Feature Wall
A feature wall is something you can have in a couple of rooms in your home; it’s a room that draws the eye and stands out from the rest, usually painted in a bright color, or with a patterned wallpaper/paintings. You can create the wall any way that you like. Try it in your living area and bathroom to get started! The bedroom is also a nice room to try it in.
Add Lots Of Texture
Still feel like there’s something missing in your home? It could be a lack of texture. Having texture in your decor is super important, as it makes everything look interesting. Add as much texture as you can, and make each room look really ‘touchable’. This will totally change the vibe of your home and make it feel far more cosy. Add rugs, throws, cushions, and other elements and then layer them on top of one another.
