What do most people want to change when redesigning their homes? To begin with, they want to change the curtains to give their homes a new vibe. Second, they want to re-accessorize to bring in some new light, and last but not least, they probably want to replace the furniture too. However, not everyone can afford to spend a few thousands on a new sofa. Fortunately, there’s so much that you can do with little money. Bring your home back to life with the following 5 tips – they’re all convenient, so you won’t have to worry that you’ll be left penniless when you’re done.
- New accessories
Brand new accessories in the form of paintings, rugs, plants, candles and blankets are excellent choices whenever we want to revamp a room on a budget. Believe it or not, a new carpet placed under a coffee table adorned with fresh flowers can have an amazing effect. Your living area with scream relaxation and it will instantly appeal to everyone’s senses. Invest in a blanket too, and make sure it is made of a qualitative, soft fabric. Cotton is an exceptional option, although more affordable materials such as organic polyester and bamboo can have an equally pleasurable effect.
- Smart choice of patterns
Patterns are yet another affordable way of revamping your home’s current style. Aren’t you tired of that beige that’s eating the life out of your home? Sure, neutral walls are great, but it might be a good idea to rethink your choice of curtains to add movement into your place and make it stand out. There’s no need to spend a fortune on a complete remodel; but some tweaks here and here can make a huge difference. Stripes for example, are in high demand this season. Use them for your throw pillows, blankets, table linens and curtains. Keep a pattern to add fluidity: for example, horizontal lines for pillows should be matches with horizontal lines for the curtains and rug.
- Update window treatments
Updating window treatments can be a smart move whenever you’re trying to re-stylish your home on a budget. Replacing old shades in the kitchen with chic shutters, investing in more colorful curtains in the living area and bedroom, and replacing knobs and handles can instantly make your home look and feel better, more modern. Designer fabrics in general, can be expensive. But there are deals you can spot if you subscribe to famous websites and stores that sell them. Quality should dominate within your home. Damask, Egyptian cotton, and mohair, and organics are cherished by homeowners eager to make their homes more comfortable and up-to-date with the most recent trends.
- Shelving instead of bookcase
Old-fashioned bookcases that are bulky and take up a lot of space are no longer in trend. It is because they take up too much space; they’re not practical and cost a lot of money. A better alternative is to turn your attention to shelves in the living room and bedroom think outside the box when having shelves installed on the wall. A smart and chic option are shelves made of glass. The translucency of the glass will welcome in more light, not to mention that the illusion created will make books and accessories look like they’re floating.
- Colorful blankets
New blankets can have a powerful effect in a home that looks dull and unappealing. In fact, this is a great way to reconsider your style and give a living room an upbeat vibe. Go crazy on the color, but make sure there’s balance. Choose your patterns carefully. For example, if the shades and curtains have horizontal stripes, it might be a smart choice to purchase blankets with stripes as well. Your home will look a lot “taller” and the blended colors will add comfort and will make your space seem more vivid and lively.
Updating your home’s current décor and style is required every 5 years. You want your place to be comfortable, but at the same time feel vibrant and appealing. Colors, patterns, new curtains and designer fabrics can all do that. But then again, they must be chosen wisely.
