Easy Ways to Transform Your House
We are expecting the cold weather and it’s during this time that we often begin to examine our house, think about what we would like to modify and looks. For some that will mean a major remodel, but for the most it means smaller, aesthetic changes; matters that may be done quickly, at a low cost.
We would like to provide tips that are simple to transform your home quickly.
Add color to the walls and change the appearance and feel of a room. You may paint a whole room, or select an accent wall to emphasize a focal point. For inspiration, pick color from a favorite piece of art, or an area rug which you love. Get a sample of the colors, if you are having trouble deciding on what color to paint and put them up inside the room.
What we imply by that is, rearrange your existing furniture so it is not against the walls.
One way to start is to determine the chambers’ focal point. Frequently it’s a fireplace. You’ll want to organize your furniture to dramatize your point. Don’t have a focal point? Use this as an opportunity.
Go shopping in your own home; you might be amazed at what you find.
We become accustomed to viewing certain pieces of furniture, artwork and accessories in particular rooms of the home. Simply by placing your things in new spaces and areas you can have a ‘fresh’ room. The nightstand from your used guest room might be a perfect side table in your family room. Mix it up, you have nothing to lose. When there’s a mixture of furniture and styles, a space is always more interesting.
Add a Rug
Houses in the valley have open rooms that flow into one another and a rug can define a room. Area rugs add a space that is otherwise neutral in tone and texture and color. Additionally, the acoustics in a room that has flooring material could be softened by adding a rug. Be sure you layout your furnishings (either physically or on paper) if you are going rug shopping. In this manner, you will understand what size of the rug will probably work. Always bring some choices to home when you shop for a local rug. The rug will probably look better in your house than it will in a shop.
Frequently what are missing out of a space are the smaller things that give it distinctive character. The accessories. Accessories can be things that already exist in your home that hold memories things, or even even better, a blend of new and present items. The definition of an attachment is broad. It is everything from vases and candlestick holders to mirrors and plants.
