When you are looking to redecorate your home, it’s important to think about the feeling or mood that you want. Are you going for a calm and serene vibe? Or do you prefer a more chaotic atmosphere with lots of colors? Whatever space in your house needs some attention, there are simple tricks to make it feel like new.
In this post, we’re focused on relatively simple things you can do to change up the look of different spaces in your home. There’s no need for contractors and taking down walls or completely reconstructing your home to make things work. Even just a new light fixture or chair can be a drastic improvement.
Redefine Your Space
You can change the mood of any room in your house with some simple changes. For instance, a bright area might be feeling too chaotic for you and you may want to tone it down by adding darker colors or patterns. Maybe you need more privacy and would prefer an aesthetically pleasing window blinds system over curtains.
Just because a space is meant to be used one way doesn’t mean it has to stay that way. Experiment with rearranging seating, adding calming elements or screens, or other separation devices to create a workspace or extra privacy.
Add Pops of Color
There are many ways to add pops of color without completely redecorating your home – whether that’s changing up existing furniture pieces like chairs, couches, tables, shelves, or sideboards; painting walls; incorporating artwork into the space through paintings hung on walls, sculptures displayed on display stands or mirrors embellished with trinkets and decorative frames (just make sure there is enough room around these items for people to move and walk about comfortably); or even placing window boxes on the outside of your home.
Create a New Environment
It’s easy to create an entirely new environment in one room, like painting all four walls with a different color – this can be as drastic or subtle as you want it to be but will have an impactful effect either way.
You could also just paint only one wall if that is more appealing; installing artwork such as paintings hung on the blank white space surrounding them; adding furniture such as shelves stocked full of books (or other decorative objects) which can serve double duty by providing extra storage space and creating borders between spaces; changing out curtains for blinds system over windows, or vice versa; and finally, changing out the rug for a more modern pattern.
Hire a Professional
If you’re really struggling with ideas, hiring a professional interior decorator can be just the touch you need. They’ll help you with planning, staging, and picking out just the right elements and all without having to completely redo your home.
This is the perfect option for when you want to make some changes but don’t have the time or inspiration to do it all yourself.
