Are you tired of your same old home? Do you wish you could change it just a bit (or a lot) and make it exciting and fresh? It’s not a new thing – after a while, people get bored of the same old furniture, same old walls, and same old carpets, and they start thinking about making a change. If you’re feeling restless and want to change something about your home, we offer you a few solutions which might help you make a decision.
Are you ready to change?
Before you call in decorators and declare war on your old wallpapers, you should ask yourself what is it that you actually want to change in your home? Are little things driving you mad or you’re looking to make the space more functional? There are two ways for you to change your home: use little things to spice up and refresh your living space, or do a big renovation that can actually increase the market value of your home. So, before you start changing anything, ask yourself how big of a change are you thinking about and try to see how much time and money you are willing to spend on this little project? Since most people don’t really have the money to renovate every time a new trend appears, little changes can be enough to completely transform your living space.
Out with the old, in with the new furniture
One of the easiest ways to brighten up your home is to change your furniture. If you can’t actually afford entire living room furniture sets, there are easy and cheap ways to repurpose your old furniture and give it new life. These useful mini makeovers can turn trash into treasure with a little bit of paint and a pinch of creativity, and the results will astonish you. Paint the drawers on your old desk ‘ombre’ to make it look brand new, and apply a fresh coat of paint and a bit of wrapping paper to transform your old bar cart into a little work of art. You can also buy a trendy new piece of furniture and rearrange the tables and armchairs so that the room looks like something out of a magazine.
Garages are difficult – they’re often small storage units which you use to keep your tools, car, and all the things you rarely use in your household (suitcases filled with old files, kitchen appliances which you swear you’ll use again, etc). If you’re looking for a way to make the space more useful, you can think about transforming it into a small apartment, music studio, or even a home theatre. The process of knock down rebuild in Brisbane can be involved, so make sure you have proper permits. Also, it would be a good idea to hire a team of professionals specialized in demolishing and rebuilding to ensure you’re getting the space of your dreams in a safe way.
Mix it up
Another simple way to make your home more dynamic and interesting is to mix different styles. Still, if you mix too much you’ll risk getting a chaotic home with a bunch of colours which will tire your eyes. Use dominant colours, that will allow you to add colourful details without causing confusion. Also, you’ll want to keep the scale in mind – you don’t need huge armchairs next to delicate wooden coffee tables and minimalist lamps.
There are so many ways to show to the world and other people who you are: the way you dress, your choice of books and music, your job, and especially your home. These things can reflect not only your likes and preferences, but also your social standing. Whether you’re into minimalism or the concept of ‘luxury living’, your home is always a reflection of who you are, your safe haven and your comfort zone, and you should take good care of it.
